We 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.
- Visit Store.Ovi.com and Sign in
- Choose your device in order to show the available content for it
- Search for apps or games that you want
- Edit the URL by adding /download to the end of the content ID number.
- Install it
Example of current url http://store.ovi.com/content/61776 then change it to http://store.ovi.com/content/61776/download
Try this now to Nokia Battery Monitor http://store.ovi.com/content/61776/download
Update: For Non .sisx, .sis, and .jar .wgz application…please refer to this link http://www.xssaccess.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=58
