Hello New Ovi Store: Version 1.07 update.

My twitter stream (@jaymontano) mentioned the Ovi Store being down for a bit today. All About Symbian points out that there’s a new update for the Ovi Store. Lo and behold, N97 agrees and asks me to also update to the newer 1.07 version. This is NOT the big update, but a welcome incremental improvement nonetheless. (It’s still green themed).

I would agree with AAS in that the Ovi Store does feel slightly faster.

With the new Ovi Store update, instead of having to open new pages, load more will simply put more apps at the bottom of the list. (You can just keep pressing “load more items…”

AAS points out that there’s now a “homescreen widgets” category (though this doesn’t seem to list all apps that can be homescreen widgets).

In each main ‘category’ (e.g. apps/games) you can narrow down Application channels (the amount differs per each main category, e.g. there’s no Ovi for Business in Audio & Video).

Only two pages worth of homescreen widgets listed. Check out also football “channel”

Application channels should not be confused with “Categories” which I find is a much better way of stumbling into new applications (not new, but I thought I’d highlight it anyway)

App Categories

I’m still having problems with Ovi Store on My N97. I don’t know if it’s Ovi Store or N97 (most likely the latter). At the moment, I can’t view “My Stuff” and I can’t even sign out

I think pretty much all the handsets (latest) get the update except of course the N900 being Maemo. (Not that we need the Ovi Store too much, we have a brilliant App Manager full of apps 🙂 though Ovi Store access like Symbian would be nice.)
