He has put together a quick list of some of the top Symbian apps in the Ovi (Nokia) Store. Here is his argument, and I concur:
One of the problems with the Nokia Ovi Store is that the sheer number of novelties, rubbish apps, Java games, personalisation items and so on that get approved means that finding the good stuff isn’t easy. What’s needed is a storefront that’s a hundred times smaller. But has the 1% of content that’s really good. This is what I’ve attempted here, hopefully you find it a good time-saver.
Who has the time to be hunting down app after app among hundreds of thousands? The problem is even worse on the Android Market and Apple App Store, both of which are far larger than the Nokia Store.
What Steve has done is make it easy to find those core apps that the average Symbian user is likely to find needful. First-time Symbian users will certainly find it useful.
