Ovi stores adds brand new features impressed from Android market.
Nokia Ovi platform has hit lot of market loss in front of superior Android and iOS and their much advanced app stores; but ovi is hot on heals to implement as many new features it can with time and the latest update to Ovi store is a proof of that.
List of some of the major new features Nokia users will see in the updated Ovi store are:
- Vast improvement in performance of interface and smooth scrolling
- App kits have been introduced, these present a collection of good apps in one package. This is really good for new users who want to quickly setup good apps all at once on their mobile.
- App update notifications now work just like Android market. It will inform you that out of your installed apps which apps have updates available and will install them easily.
There are more subtle changes to store like top apps, country specific recommendations, mobile payments etc. Overall it is a a very rich update to Ovi store, but in future I would really like is the android like over the air app installation. Which allows you to select app to install on PC and it installs on your mobile. For now Ovi store allows you to send the app link via sms to your mobile to install it via the ovi store app. Lets hope ovi updates such installation and installation queue up in future update too.
