OK, it looks like Nokia’s Ovi Store will finally see something which I, and I’m sure most of you out there have wanted, a quick and easy way to update apps!

Oddly enough, I didn’t realise that this wasn’t there until recently when I knew there was an update for Angry Birds Rio but Ovi Store didn’t show it, just assumed it would be there like on other App Stores!

The update to the store will come to Symbian^3 users in the form of version 2.8 some time next week, but don’t worry if you have other Nokia devices, as they are bringing this update to you too, but there is no fixed time frame from Nokia.

The process will be as simple as opening the Ovi Store, logging it and it will tell you if there are any updates for the apps you have downloaded, which means you will always know that you have the latest version of the applications and games.


As well as this, the Ovi Store team have also updated the way the top recommended apps, etc are targeted to your country and device, so it’s more likely to be something you might like.

If you are browsing the Ovi store from your PC, you will also see more things like “people that downloaded XYZ, also downloaded…..” so you can find more things to keep you entertained or just make your life that bit easier!

Finally if you use your device in Arabic, you will now be able to use a Localized Arabic client, but this is on Symbian^1 (S60 3rd and S60 5th) devices, I’m not sure if it’s already available on Symbian^3 or not so please comment below and let me know!
