Users of S^3 devices will be able to review and apply updates to apps they’ve downloaded for Store. Ovi Publish is also enabling the following features: extraction of version numbers automatically and exporting to the clients.
After updating to the new Ovi Store client, when the user launches the client and signs in, the client automatically checks if any of their downloaded apps have an update available. If there are updates, the user will see a green flag in the corner of your screen by your “Account” tab. Touching the flag will take the user to his account page where he can choose to update “All” or select individual apps.
This is one of the most requested features for Ovi Store. You will experience better engagement with your audience as you deliver new features, enhancements and fixes. Users who downloaded an app from the Store will be notified of the updates and can download them for free. It increases the lifetime of the applications, creates an ongoing relationship between developer and user, and increases the opportunity for the app’s success.
When you publish a new version of your app, be sure to check the publisher guide for the recommended version format and how to provide release notes about the update, which will be visible to consumers.
This feature will be rolled out initially to S^3 devices next week. App update functionality for other device family clients will be rolled out continually thereafter.
