    Explore the Ovi Store on your home screen, with Ovi Show! 

    Ovi Show! is a new widget that allows you to discover new content on the Ovi Store directly from the home screen of your Nokia device!

    How to use it? Just add it to your home screen and, when you see some cool content, click on it and you’ll be redirected to its Ovi Store download page. Simple! :)

    Ovi Show! is configurable through a settings menu, that you find opening the widget from its icon, in your phone’s menu. You can choose which content categories to filter, and how to sort the content retrieved from the store, choosing from “Top Free”, “Best Seller” and “New”.

    Once you have chosen the desired settings, don’t forget to click on “Save”, or your preferences will not be applied.

    Being just  a first release, Ovi Show! can be improved thanks to your feedback, so please post here your comments or thoughts about it! :)

    Ovi Show! is available for download here:

    Note: to use Ovi Show!, your Nokia device must support home screen widgets. Currently the devices supporting home screen widgets are: Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 mini.

      Hi, there. I downloaded and installed it on my Nokia E52, but what to do next after saved the settings? There’s not even a botton for me to press, or maybe it’s not compatible with S60v3 FP2 devices?

      Hi Trigold,

      Ovi Show is compatible with Nokia devices supporting home screen widgets, so currently with: Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 mini.

      Hi mani,

      thank you very much for your appreciation :)

      I’ve seen your AllAround widget, and it is absolutely good and useful!

      To publish on OVI you have to create a Publisher account, and its cost is 50 Euro. Once you have your account, you can publish all the apps you want without any extra charge.
