Downloading your applications from the Nokia Ovi Store directly to your PC

1st of all I won’t apologise for the long absence as I stated here that I definitely won’t post regularly.
I’m a serious Nokia freak & like many of you nokia users I download applications regularly from the Nokia ovi store.
Doing this, I have this problem of having to always download only with my phone as the desktop version of the ovi site is limited to finding your applications and sending a download link to your mobile.
The issue with this is that the mobile internet plan subscribed to on my phone is very limited in size and also, I don’t get a copy of the raw files when I use the Ovi Store app.
Was browsing earlier today and saw this tip I thought I’d share to others with this issue.
Its really simple, when on the application page, copy the link from your browser, then add /download to the end.
E.g for the WordPress for Nokia App
Don’t forget its for the free apps only!

Just an Update

Almost had a scare from my laptop screen someday’s back but my baby’s okay now. Been really busy a while, learning a lot of things as usual and depriving myself seriously of sleep in the process. Seems like I’ve a perpetual headache nowadays but its all good.

Took some time out to come here, Say 1 little Hi to you all… & Disappear!!


Swype for Symbian – My New Love

I still use and am totally in love with my Nokia 5800.. So far the only issue I have with it is the limited memory that comes with it (that’s more than compensated for by the 8gb memory card included). I love being up to date and I’ve the latest firmware and all(it had bug-ish issues when I first got it).

So, yesterday, after a lot of gist, I finally downloaded the beta edition of Swype from the nokia beta labs site.. So far so good, apart from the fact that I must type with Proper english, I noticed a little lag in perfomance and also that it takes a bit of getting used to, Its really nice, especially the style component..

I’m definitely keeping it (it was actually used in typing this post in record time).

You can get yours here.

On MTN's BlackBerry Subscription Slash

Just woke up to the news that MTN has slashed their blackberry rates as follows
Bis month from 5000 to 3000
Bis week from 1300 to 1000
Hmmmn, seems the price wars are about to begin- though this’s yet to convince me to get one. Call me what you want but I’d prefer a full featured symbian smart-phone to an over-hyped status symbol anyday moreso with the monthly mobile data tariffs announced..
Well, just pleasing info for the bb owners : enjoy the bonanza

Edit: Glo just announced new packages for voice calls with flat rates to all networks. Check their website for details.

Rounding Up..

Quick update: Just got my project corrected from my supervisor.. Almost got heart failure with the delay but just a few corrections & its ready for printing & binding. Can’t believe its almost finally over..

The Project is at Biogas Project

Counting Down to B.Eng (Gas Engineering)
