Nokia Store lets your consumers know every time you release an update of your app and provides a list of downloaded apps that now have updates. They can then download any or all the updates they choose. All app updates are free of charge to consumers who purchased and downloaded the original app. You can use app updates to introduce new features, enhancements, or bug fixes to an existing app. Through app updates, you can improve the engagement with your consumers, enhance consumer reviews of your products, and build brand loyalty.
For MIDlets, Nokia Store checks only for a different version, which might not necessarily be the latest version. So, for example, if a consumer installs app version 1.1 from an external server but Nokia Store has version 1.0, Nokia Store will report a different version. Consumers may not check the version number and can inadvertently install version 1.0 over version 1.1.
If you must use external servers, first publish the app update to Nokia Store, wait until the app update is live in Nokia Store, and then make the same app update available through the external server.
