Ok, so sometimes it would be nice if you could download a .sis (symbian install file) from the Ovi store on your desktop. This is handy to copy a load of stuff to install to your phone en masse or perhaps to get around flaky Ovi store issues or a slow 3G/wifi connection on your phone.
It’s really easy!
- Go to http://store.ovi.com/
- Sign in.
- Make sure your mobile is selected:
- Browse to the app you want, e.g. Nokia Battery Monitor
- Change the URL to the following scheme by appending “/download”: http://store.ovi.com/content/61776/download
- Install as you wish!
NOTE: This only works for free apps, doesn’t seem to work for bought & paid apps. Still handy though! Read this on a forum somewhere I think, but I forget where.
If I can be bothered, I might write a bookmarklet to do it for you. Would this be of interest to anyone?
