It’s a great day for the Ovi Store with redownloads now supported
Regular Nokia Experts readers know I have been rather dissatisfied with my Ovi Store experiences and one of the major issues I had with it was the inability to redownload an app I paid for. I test software, reset devices, and switch devices so I wanted the ability to get content back on my device that I purchased. The Ovi Store did not allow you to download the content after the first time and there is no way to backup that application for archiving. I just read over on the Ovi blog that the ability to redownload apps is available in Ovi Store clients 1.5(387) or higher on S60 devices so now I will revisit and may start using the store again.
I was especially pleased to read this statement, “And regardless of how you shop the Store, we will honor purchases made before this new version, so if you purchased the BlockGO game in August and it didn’t download properly, give it another shot by visiting the My Stuff section of the store.” I will now make sure I have the latest Ovi Store client on my N97 and try to redownload previous purchases.
