I am already registered in the Ovi Publish and had got my first app published thru the beta version on the Ovi publish in July 2010. I need to know a few things to publish my second app now - I already owned a Symbian Signed account before June 2010 because the earlier publish and distribute process required that the developers themselves send the app to the Symbian Signed testing house for testing and then to be certified. Also, the UID to be used in the app was made available by the Symbian Signed only.
Since June 2010, the Symbian Signing process (testing and certifying the app) is being done by the Ovi store for developers registered with them and also, for my first app, I did get a UID from the ovi publish only, but at that time I also had my Symbain Signed account.
Since I have now received a mail for my Symbian Signed account renewal, I need to know if there is any use of owing a Symbian signed account now. Does that mean, those who have a Symbian Signed account no longer need to renew that account for the purpose of application publish at the Ovi Store? Also, those who do not own the Symbian Signed account need not worry?
