Nokia discussed recently about some Ovi Store figures and said that it is presently getting more than 3 million downloads per day.

Finland-based telecommunications company Nokia declared that its application and mobile content store, OVI store hits 3 million downloads per day.

Overall global demand and a recent update spurred a milestone that provides users of Nokia’s latest Symbian smartphone family a friendlier look and feel with more trendy apps and games. Significant software developer momentum with over 400 000 new developers joining Forum Nokia is being gained by the Company in the last 12 months, and 92 of its developers to reach one million downloads each.

Ovi store

Since the Ovi Store was created, it doesn’t seem like that long. Once you get your new Nokia handset, it is worth heading off to the Ovi Store to see what goodies you are able to find where something is for everyone from mapping apps to games, to battery monitoring apps.

The number of Ovi users has been exceeded to 165 million people, across more than 190 countries. Every day it is rising at the new rate of 250,000 with new users. In the Ovi Store, this flexibility is shown in the current amount of interest. Although apps for your Symbian-based Nokia can be downloaded from another place too, 3 million downloads per day has been hit at only Ovi Store.

An app download is led through total of 90% of visits which is on average; each registered visitor downloads 2.6 apps. Both the Nokia Qt Software Development Toolkit (SDK) and the Qt SDK have been downloaded 1.5 million times.

A lot of interest from users has been seen in some of the latest apps to hit the Store that include,

  • NHL GameCenter: Continue with your favorite hockey team by listening to live radio, checking stats and scores, or by watching highlights and condensed games.
  • Swype: Swype’s technology facilitates users to input words faster and easier with one continuous finger or stylus motion across the keyboard.
  • WhatsApp Messenger: 3G or WiFi to connect with friends and family is used by a smartphone messaging app. To send and receive messages, pictures, audio notes, and video messages, switch from SMS to WhatsApp free of cost.

For the new Symbian devices, user experience and functionality in another big driver for the coming months have come with the version of Ovi Store, which will be the eagerly expected improvements. To explore into the Store each morning, it has become positively pleasurable on the lookout for fresh meat and recently there is roughly always something worth a try. CellApp’s Q Torch, Rovio’s Angry Birds, and EA’s NEed for Speed Shift HD are the top three apps in the Ovi Store.

Scott Ellison, Vice President of Mobile and Consumer Connected Platforms at IDC said in a statement “With Nokia’s stronger focus on the Qt platform and improved developer ecosystem, Nokia should continue to see its developer numbers increase as developers see profit from new revenue shares, operator billings and the ever-growing user base around the world.”
