Nokia changes everything. This refers not only to the operating system Nokia’s high-end smartphones will be packed with, but also to the strategy and the way they will offer the apps. So Nokia‘s latest announcement was not surprising — Nokia’s renaming Ovi Store to Nokia Store.
Nokia made an overhaul with Ovi Store, and using Qt Quick completely redesigned it. According to Nokia, the new store is much faster, than Ovi Store was. Besides, the operations taken by users are smoother than with the previous version. Thanks to a new navigation bar at the bottom of the store now it’s easier to discover new apps. Moreover, Nokia has also streamlined the purchasing process for paid apps. All these improvements have been made due to Qt, which is becoming more and more common especially in mobile devices.
At the moment owners of Symbian-powered devices are getting the new store as a software update. So before it’s available for your handset (I guess the update is coming region by region), you can take a quick look at the video below introducing details about Nokia Store.
