Re: download applications from ovi store via PC

Not sure with the ovi suite cos I always download directly to my phone but when I was using PC suite and the old mosh nokia store there was a separate option to download and install instead of just getting a link sent to your phone but if Not go to the actual website (Not through the ovi suite) and download from there, then it should work automatically

Re: download applications from ovi store via PC

You cannot download directly from Ovi store to your pc, if you have no data plan use wlan on 5800.

Re: download applications from ovi store via PC

I think this is simply bull..it: Not evereybody has or wants a WLAN (e-smog!), not everybody has unlimited MB for downloading (roaming is still very expensive!). but everybody using Ovi Suite has at least an Ethernet connection to internet - sowhy not allow to install programs through cable? In the old Nokia PC Suite it was possible. Nokia is really losing and losing and losing...

Re: download applications from ovi store via PC

I definitively agree ... nokia is still loosing and loosing ...

 

... its really convienient to download via PC

And ! the shortcut -> Advertisements by nokia run the download, but not the stuff of the store !

 

So, other Online Stores for mobile apps are just winning.

Re: download applications from ovi store via PC

What other online Stores? Android also needs your phone to have a network connection for you to be able to download apps to your phone. I have no knowledge about how iTunes would work, but apart from that one, the other app markets also need a phone to have network connection.

Sure you can look for sis files through Google, but you run the risk of getting an incompatible software on your phone that may cause damage. Direct download to the phone is the safest way. Or you could just go ahead and download the sis files.
