23 issues with the Ovi Store, main one keeps me away
Readers here know my feelings about the Ovi Store and why I currently avoid making any purchases there at all. As Ewan pointed out in his number 1 item of 23 things Nokia needs to fix in the Ovi Store, buyers should be able to redownload purchases to the same device as many times as they need to. I know I am not the only one that performs resets to clean up a device and start over or to fix some rare error with the device and not being able to ever again download an application is an extremely poor practice.
The great promise of the Ovi Store that could have had it stomping on the iPhone App Store was relevant user recommendations and I have yet to see this work at all. There are just so many disappointments in the Ovi Store as clearly described by the folks at All About Symbian and I have to wonder who is actually using the store. I have found a couple of free apps and themes to use, but unlike the Android Market or App Store I don’t actually go to the Ovi Store to find new cool apps and browse around.
It would be interesting to see someone post a list of what is right about the Ovi Store and I fear it would be MUCH shorter than what is wrong with it.
