    Ovi Store client UID and passing params to it

    What is the UID for the Ovi Store client?, and its syntax to open it from with an app pointing to a specific URL?

    I am finishing an application that contains links to content in OVI.
    Currently, I am linking to the content by opening the browser pointint to the URL ("http://store.ovi.mobi/....").
    This triggers the opening of the Ovi Store application inside the handset (I target N97 only). And it ends up in the user being prompted twice for APN selection.

    I assume that it is perfectly possible to open the Ovi link directly inside the Ovi Store App instead of going through the browser, but I can't find neither the UID for the Ovi Store client nor the syntax to pass the URL argument.
    Isn't this info public?, if so, can someone who knows it share it here?

    When it comes to Ovi, don't assume ANYTHING. Beliebe me, this is the only way to stay sane.

    From an user standpoint, I don't see too much issue with them having to click the AP twice. To be honest, I don't think that they will ever notice.

    Re: Ovi Store client UID and passing params to it

    Hello Lucarocchi,

    Actually, I never figured out how to do it.
    One would think that Nokia would have provided a way by now, but I thiink that they are more focused on other issues.

    Tamhanna's rule to not assume anything regarding Nokia Store, continues being true, I am afraid.

    Sorry I can't help.

    cheers
