Ovi Store 2 Nokia N8We got a very good tip from Iain of doitdifferent that could benefit Symbian and Maemo/MeeGo users in taking full advantage of the Ovi’s offering at their store…most likely the non-WiFi smartphones. The tip was all about getting direct downloads of Ovi Store content to your PC/Mac or other computers without having to connect through 3G or WiFi with your phone.

Please refer the step-by-step guide below:

Note* This is not a hack just a tip. Plus only free apps can be downloaded.

  1. Visit Store.Ovi.com and Sign in
  2. Choose your device in order to show the available content for it
  3. Search for apps or games that you want
  4. Edit the URL by adding /download to the end of the content ID number.
  5. Install it

Example of current url  http://store.ovi.com/content/61776 then change it to http://store.ovi.com/content/61776/download
