Nokia OVI Store client update to version 2.08.042.
Change-log for Ovi Store 2.8 update
- Users are able to review and apply updates to apps they’ve downloaded from the Ovi Store. The server now sends version numbers automatically down to the client on the phone.
- Nokia's algorithm for delivering 'Top Free' and 'Best Sellers' has been tweaked, to "make app and game listings more relevant for consumers". Internal rankings are now filtered better by device and region, so that popularity in one niche won't skew the whole.
- Finding relevant apps has been made easier, with the addition of a “users who downloaded x also downloaded y” system.
- Localization of S60 clients to Arabic Store clients for S60 5th Edition and S60 3rd Edition.
