Ovi store closed for 24 hours due to developer 'log jam'
The Ovi store closed for 24 hours last week because too many developers were trying to access the system.
The store will launch with an estimated 20,000 applications, four times as many as Apple’s App store when it opened.
A spokeswoman for Nokia said: ‘We have a log jam in terms of developer submissions awaiting approval.’
Some believe the complex developer requirements may lead to a tail-off in applications. Christian Howes of WebTrends said: ‘People are getting bounce backs because they don’t have the specific Java or Symbian training.’
