Blog sites have been buzzing about the new Ovi Store (version 2.0.8.042) for over a week now. Finally I got a notification to update to the newest version when opening Ovi Store app on my UK/Ireland N8-00 this afternoon. @camb078 mentioned the update wasn’t available for him in France initially, but available after changing the date. Symbian S^3 users from Ireland, Finland, UK, India and now France have confirmed that the much anticipated update is available.
You will have an option to keep the current version of the store by clicking on the ‘Remind me later’ button. The app size is 4.77 MB and it takes less than 5 minutes to download and install the update.
Once the app opens make sure you click on the Account tab on the top right portion of the screen and enter your credentials.
You will now see the ‘Updates’ section above My Stuff. It will show how many updates are available for your free and paid apps. You will have a choice to update all by clicking on the top button (‘Update Al’) or update the app individually. For example, I clicked on the Molome app and you will be to update to v1.1.0 by simply clicking on the ‘Update’ button.
On the account page, you will see the number of updates that are available in the green section on the top right corner.
One thing I noticed is that when your paid app has exceeded the allowable download you will get an error next to the app. I don’t understand why an update for a program is counted as part of the 5 allowable download for a paid app. I will contact Ovi Customer service to see if they can sort out this issue. You can go to the help section of the Ovi Store app and submit an inquiry.
I also got a white screen and auto reboot when I tried installing multiple apps. I guess for now, I will try to install the updates individually.
