Nokia signing Symbian apps for free August 21st, 2010


By removing the “public beta” for Symbian Signing, Nokia is demonstrating to Ovi Publishers its commitment to review the initial investment costs associated with getting a publisher ID and getting their apps signed. Ovi Publishers can have their Qt Symbian (with Nokia Smart Installer for Symbian), Symbian C++, Flash Lite apps, and Symbian Themes signed for free by Nokia after providing the necessary information and following some new steps during their application submission to publish to Ovi.
