The company also said that more than 400,000 new developers have come onboard in the past 12 months, 92 of which have topped the 1 million download mark for their application. Some of the most popular apps on its Ovi Store include QTorch, Angry Birds and Need for Speed Shift HD.
One of the new applications to be available in the Ovi Store is a local web cam and surf forecasting resource called Coastalwatch. According to the editor of Coastalwatch, Ben Horvath said that developing on the new Symbian platform was easy and Nokia’s platform will help them reach ‘millions of handsets’.
Nokia’s Head of Developer Relations for Asia Pacific, Kenny Mathers, said “Ovi Store is on a strong trajectory fueled by new apps and games from a growing number of partners. Globally, the number of daily downloads has increased exponentially from about 2 million to 3 million since September.”
Nokia also said that its Qt Software Development Toolkit (SDK) and the Qt SDK combined have been downloaded 1.5 million times.
