App Wizard lets rookies make free Ovi Store apps
Nokia has launched an Ovi App Wizard that lets users with no programming skills to create an app accessible to all Ovi Store subscribers that will showcase the content of the sites they watch that use Atom or RSS feeds. The service is free as well, and apps take just minutes to create after users subscribe for free. It lets users bring Atom or RSS feeds from their websites to Nokia devices as well as feeds from YouTube, Twitter, a blog or wherever else updates are made.
The apps can be published in specific countries, or worldwide, and users can also sell them or have them distributed for free. As well, ad sales can be incorporated into the app, with all resulting profits going to the app creator. The two ad companies supported are MillenialMedia and Mpression. The app can go live, if approved, as soon as 24 hours after its creation as well.
