The Ovi Store gets 'Did you mean?' suggestions, extra languages

Published by at

Nokia's Ovi Store got a few upgrades today, notably a fuzzy search system incorporating 'Did you mean?' functionality for coping with spelling errors - all too easy to do when typing in application names and getting pluralisation or punctuation wrong. Nokia has also added Arabic and Hindi support to the Store for Series 40 users, a significant boost to potential application sales and distribution in the Middle East and India, with Arabic also rolling out to Symbian users as well very shortly.

Did you mean?

Did you know that العربية (Arabic)is spoken in over 25 countries, covering nearly 350 million people? It is amazing. Starting today, we’ve rolled this out to many of our users with Series 40 devices (like the Nokia X3-02 or Nokia C3-01, the Nokia 6300 and more!) with some of our new Symbian devices also coming in the next few days.
