In 89 Days There Will Be No More New MeeGo or Symbian Apps

meegoorsymbianIt looks like both Symbian and MeeGo support will officially stop in less than two months for new apps or updates of existing apps.  According to an email sent to developers “..starting January 1st 2014 you will no longer be able to publish any new content or update existing content for Symbian and MeeGo”  This move is not really shocking being that Nokia will no longer be in the handset business at that point, plus you knew Microsoft wouldn’t support non-Windows Phone OS.  While this move is not shocking it’s still very sad.  See the full letter below:

  1. I’m gonna pulling all my Asha app from nokia as form of boycott and also because the revenue from Asha is very insignificant compare to sales from symbian app.

    • In theory we should be fine for apps like Tweetian and Qneptunea. I think the problem lies with whether devs can get around the app having to be ‘signed’ by Nokia in order for the app to be installable on a Symbian/MeeGo phone. Of course, hacked phones (like my 808) can have pretty much *anything* installed on them (.sis files anyway) without a Nokia signed process, but this will be the main problem I think. A dev could effectively update their app, have a new version ready for free download on their own website, but the end-user would get “Cannot install” on their phone because it hasn’t gone through the right channels. I’m hoping that I’m very wrong though 🙂
