FREE from ovi I know we’re starting with a native app – but this one is a good ‘un and deserves a mention in any best Nokia app list. Ovi maps has maps for 180 countries that can be pre-loaded onto a Nokia handset - avoiding the worry of data charges - you’ll find what you want, when you want it. Pretty useful for travelling or even just in situations where there’s no signal. It also offers voiced directions if you need to be hands-free. Also includes free local weather, events nearby and travel guides from Lonely Planet and Michelin for over 1,000 world-wide destinations.
As an app store it’s often overlooked but Nokia’s Ovi apps are installed on thousands of popular phones and since we’ve been getting all loved up with Nokia on ShinyShiny this week, we thought we’d round off with a Top Ten Nokia Ovi store apps gallery.
A few reservations though: not all apps are compatible with all phones… and we’ve had reports that 3rd party apps don’t always work straight off…
