Nokia is winding down Ovi Share
Nokia’s own Symbian-related Ovi brand is slowly going the way of the dodo, just like Symbian itself will in the coming years, and this time Ovi Share is getting closed. In a week, the service will no longer allow web uploads and after the end of May you won’t be able to download your content.

So the time to act is now if you have something stores over at Ovi Share.

You’d need to do the following:
  • Visit http://share.ovi.com from your personal computer
  • Login to your Ovi account
  • Go to Download your media library and click “Download now”
  • Follow the instructions on the site

You can get your data either in a single .zip package, or by parts.

Nokia says winding down Ovi will allow the Finns to focus on their main services like Nokia Drive, Nokia Maps and Nokia Transport. Hit the source link below for all the details, and don’t forget to also let us know - have you ever used the service?

Well the Ovi Store was already superseded by the Nokia Store for most devices, so this isn't that big a deal.
