Users Thoughts on Ovi Store

Was the Ovi Store really ready for the lime light?

Was it a desperation move for Nokia to launch the Ovi Store due to the building competition? (Palm Pre Coming Out, New Apple iPhone announcement, New Android Phones Coming out, etc.)

So many questions needs to be answered by Nokia…

Well I haven’t even gotten a chance to prepare a review on my experience with the Ovi Store and yet there are so many unhappy campers complaining about the Ovi Store’s flaws.

Here are some Positive and Negative feedbacks I have read so far.


*Available around the World *Supports a wide Variety of Nokia Phones including the midrange S40 series. *35,000 Content *Self Explanatory Installation


*Very Slow to navigate *App Compatability issues *Some users gets double charge on their credit cards. *Lack of customer service/tech support.

What bugs me the most is some issues like this one on Howard Forums.

How can you gain confidence to buying apps on Ovi Store if ever you needed to reformat your phone, there is no retrieval of the apps you have purchased. You either have to purchase it over again or email their tech support which does not even work.

I just hope Nokia can fix these issues ASAP so they can turn this thing around and get more users and developers involve on the growth of Ovi Store.

Let us know your thoughts on the Ovi Store if ever I missed something. The more comments the better so we can heard by Nokia.
