    How can we publish 100 Applications without spending 100 days? Should we supply an XML like we do to other stores? or there is another way. we spend a lot of time uploading each app. please advice

    Unless things have changed recently, Ovi Store does not have any kind of a "batch" method of submitting applications. Until it does, doing it one by one is the only way.

    i realy wouldnt like that to happen to ovi , i remember when iphone app store had cleaned out like thousand of those kind of apps some of them were just packages of webpages or rss updates on an issue.
    those kind of spam apps just ruin the feeling of the store

    You are the judge and the executer? In that case you need some facts: we have 50 content experts that works on daily basis... now who are you to judge?

    The reason there is not any batch loader is that even if you have a Premium Content ($1Million insurance) account allow the uploading of media EACH AND EVERY peice of content has to be check if this acceptable and meets the guideline and policy.

    If these are 100 applications EACH AND EVERY one will need checking across a range of phones and countries. This means that even if one per day is checked you would not get the last one past QA by at earliest 4 months (100+ day)

    Do you handle rejections well. What if you had a high rejection rate! for certain countries and some mobiles. When you signed up as a developer you ticked the box agreeing to the T&C on content and QA was final.

    Try 5 of your best selling content first, see if you get any rejections

    I'm pretty certain that Nokia is aware of this particular limitation. For now, you probably need to dedicate a person (or at last 30-50% of someone's time) for this task, if you plan on releasing new apps at that rate.

    Thanks Mr. Gilmour,

    First and foremost please accept my apology.

    The reson i asked is that we have similar app for one country. Example: "Out lets" in each city, in the same language, same devices etc. basically the same app, with different data. These apps are selling very well in the local provider's app stores in my country. Clone would help upload the apps for QA.

    regards,
    Sam

    Dear Petrib,
    Unfortunate that’s exactly what we are doing. I am looking for cheaper way

    Many thanks,

    Re: How to publish 100 Applications

    Hi,

    @Sam
    It looks somehow strange to me that your company creates 10-30 app/months?
    May I know what kinds of applications are those?
    Ovi has a QA process that Ovi will follow in any case.
    But of course Ovi will help developers to publish their application and at the same time want to follow it's process to keep best user experience.

    Yes I know that it look strange. I can tell you only this: we have uploaded 6-7 applications in the last month which proved by your QA and already on air. That was the test. Please note that each app in going through our QA before upload to any store.
    The reason we do not upload the others 92 which by the way, sold very nice in the local providers app stores (we have agreements with all of them) is because it take us a lot of time to upload each one of them. I can't tell you all, but please note that giant companies after our development. Our solution can beat iphone easily
    So, if Ovi wants hundreds app a year we need tool to upload them. Other stores (we work only with the biggest app stores in the world) already offer us to upload via xml and there are other solutions.

    Thanks for your interest,
    Regards,
    Sam

    Re: How to publish 100 Applications

    Please can you write here your company's web site or link to your apps in OVI store? (as you said there's some test apps). Many of us are so curious to learn more about your company now. I have to say you did good marketing here
    Best regards,
    Dusan

    Although this app was build by our 1st generation (old system), as to now this is the only one in English we have upload to Ovi : http://store.ovi.com/search?q=young+amsterdam

    All the others in Ovi are not in English.

    Please note that we have no intention to make any marketing here. Our target markets are different

    Thanks,
    Sam

    If your target is defined, may I suggest you directly send the sis to them after signing? Why do you want to upload all those apps to ovistore at all?
