    Some questions on Nokia's Ovi Store.

    Hi,

    This is my first post so please bear with me if it is a noob question. I would like to know that as a flashlite developer do I need to publish my game/app through a Ovi Store only for Nokia Phones? Are they doing something similar to Apple's AppStore? Do they have an iTunes type software through which I can browse through various games and apps (is it the Ovi Suite) ? And lastly any game for the Nokia platform to be published will have to be done through this route only?

    Looking forward to your replies.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards.

    Do not forget checking the Support section on http://www.nokia.com
    For example the FAQ for Store says

    No.
    but you will find other things as well.

    Nokia is not Apple, and Ovi Store is just one possible channel. You can freely distribute applications even on your own website. An answer on the first page says for example that Skype is not available from Ovi in the US, but you can still download it from Skype's own site.

    Hi abhi_shekv ! Welcome to Nokia developer discussion Boards!!

    Just to add what Wizard_hu commented, You can publish your app through any distribution channel, but with Ovi store you have the unique benefit of making your app / game available for millions of devices.

    You can view all the content available in the store using the URL http://store.ovi.com/ If you want to become a publisher, you can look at http://publish.ovi.com/

    Also you may have a look at How to package a Flash Lite content in a Widget http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...a_.sis_then.3F

    Hope this helps!

    Regards
    Gopal
