All About Symbian application in Ovi Store

An All About Symbian application, which allows you easy access to the site's latest content, is now available in Nokia's Ovi Store. The application was built using Nokia's new Ovi App Wizard (more on that in a future post) and is based on the RSS content feeds. The content is divided into four chhanels: All About Symbian News, AAS Insight Podcast, AAS YouTube videos and the most recent AAS tweets. The application is free and is compatible with all of Nokia's Symbian^1 (S60 5th Edition) devices. Read on for further details and screenshots.

Read on in the full article.

Excellent App! Just curious to know how long it took from submission to approval. I've been waiting over 24 hours now and still nothing on my app (

"Sorry, this item is not available for your country."
This is the message I got at Hong Kong.

So if Nokia actually had a flagship phone with a decent browser, I could just view the site as a normal web page without the need for an app?

Jezus :/. You're sad, man. It buffles me you actually took time to come here and post such nonsense. Why even bother? Butthurt much? You've completely missed the purpose of such widget in OVI Store.

Thanks, Rafe. Kudos for homescreen plugin and kudos to Nokia for such great tool.

@krisq: Ignoring the inflammatory crap from the poster, he has a point which I agree with: I don't see the point of an app for a website such as this as I can access all the content very easily on my phone browser.
My view is that apps should give some additional functionality, like: JbakTaskman, Skype, Qik, Symtorrent, to name a few I have on my phone. The trend of websites having their own apps really doesn't make sense to me. Just putting it out there for discussion, not bashing anyone, or starting a flame war...

my wild guess is that for AAS this is more about proof of concept than Rafe actually thinking this is hugely useful or desperately needed.

So you've missed the point too. If you'd run the site in likes of AAS you should or would want to have a widget available on a place like OVI Store, just for the possibility of reaching more readers and to rise awareness that such site even exists. Yes, the usability may be questionable but I for example, find homescreen widget pretty handy. I'm passionate about Symbian and updates directly to my desktop are very welcome. Don't like it, don't use it. Simple as that.

Glad you managed to get yours approved Rafe, I have had our Nokiausers, and NokiaDNA apps rejected several times now due to "Nokia" either being in the title, or url, and there is no way around it. I have even tried to submit them by renaming them NUsers, and NDNA, but rejected again. Gutted.

FYI... the site works fine on the Nokia default browser as well. I dont see a reason why the browser is been blamed by some people...

That's because some people have nothing better to do but wait here to post anti-Nokia comment.

AAS renders fine on the default and Opera browsers, but still a good work on the widget.

I have been looking at this site from a non Symbian phone with a much praised browser and touch interface, and this app would still be a better way of doing it.
