Nokia reported the massive growth of the OVI store’s application downloads today. On average OVI store gets 3 Million hits daily .
Above Chart from Asymco.com Compares the OVI Store with Apple and Music Stores.
Nokia started the OVI Store in the mid of 2008 and geared from mid of the 2009. After the integration of the OVI Store client in the phones (pre installed and free download options ),and the promotions done by Nokia in various forms the number of downloads also started to increase.
Earlier this year Nokia reported a daily download average of 1.5 Million apps from the OVI Store.OVI store’s number of membership also exceeds 165 million members across more than 190 countries. From my perception and few of the Stats from my published App in OVI ,N97 ,Xpress Music 5800 and Nokia N8 users are aggressively download contents from OVI Store .Normally people do more downloads when they buy new phones .
Angry Birds,Q Torch,Need for Speed Shift HD,are few of the top most applications downloaded for the Nokia N8. Nokia N8 and some creative applications like Swype played a reasonable contribution in the leap of the app downloads .No doubt that ,the upcoming new Symbian^3 based Nokia phones also will play a big role in this number game.
Nokia declared that each registered user of the OVI Store downloads average 2.6 apps. 92 OVI Store publishers got more than 1 Million downloads of their applications ,this number will be 100 within next two weeks as per the stats.
