Nokia to overhaul Ovi store

Darren Allan -

Nokia’s app shop, the Ovi store, is set for a revamp come the spring of 2010.

The overhaul is currently being worked on, with Nokia considering user feedback on the current store to help tweak it to perfection.

According to an FT.com report, Ovi 2.0, as it is currently dubbed, will include new features such as a slicker user interface, faster operation, and in-application payments.

In the longer term, Nokia also hopes to include a scheme of recommendations from friends as to which apps you might like to purchase.

The company thinks the result will more ably challenge Apple’s mighty app store, which it is lagging behind.

Although the Ovi store certainly isn’t performing too shabbily, even as is. Nokia reckons that it’s currently pulling in around a million downloads per day.
