Nokia's Ovi Store registers 3 million downloads a day
Nokia announced that its Ovi Store, the place to shop for Symbian apps, now registers some three million downloads each day. Just half a year ago, that number stood at 1.5 million. With 250,000 new users each day and more than 165 million total registered users from 190 countries, Nokia is trying to give its users a competitive platform like Apple's App Store. Daily downloads on the App Store accounted to 17 million, according to the latest analysis.
What might seem interesting to developers, however, is the outreach of their apps. Nokia announced that 92 developers (mostly software companies) have enjoyed more than 1 million downloads for their apps. The Finnish company decided to move to QT as its main development framework in an attempt to attract developers. Some of the latest and most downloaded apps included Swype, NHL GameCenter and WhatsApp Messenger. Do you like what you see on Nokia's Ovi Store?

As someone noted on nokia conversations, the amazing thing about this is the rate of growth. 2 million downloads a day was passed during september. Current speed gives something like 800% annual growth rate.

hell why care about number of downloads? TAKE CARE OF HOW MANY DOWNLOADABLES YOU HAVE. because still nokia has nonsense crap applications on the ovi store.... QUANTITY AND QUALITY OF APPS RESULTS TO MUCH HIGHER DOWNLOADS... so why care and shout out to the whole world you have 3million downloads when there are only very few apps downloadables? here in the philippines you cant even buy and download some games or apps. crap nokia. and to tell you apps are country specific meaning you cant download for example Angry Birds in philippines but you can download it from finland. unlike android market and apple app store which doesnt mind where you are in the world

Too bad that if the apps were crappy, then there wouldn't be three million downloads per day. I'm pretty sure if there are so many downloads, then at least most of the apps are not crappy. Sorry sir, go cry in the corner.

Nope not yet, they actually sell the most phones worldwide and make the most money from their phone sales.
