We all Know about Nokia’s new service “OVI STORE”. That’s a great service indeed, but visiting that store is normally only possible through your mobile phone’s browser. Nokia limited it so that people use mobile internet more and what that service is meant for.
So, how to Download Ovi Store Apps & games on PC?
But with today’s nice small trick with our favorite Firefox browser it’s going to be easy as pie to download any application, video, games or others services from ovi website. So just follow my instructions below.
1. First you need Firefox internet browser, for those don’t have already down & install the Firefox browser from here.
2. go to the http://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/59 & install the extension. This is the extension which will change the user agent from computer to mobile.
3. Exit & Restart Firefox and click the tools Menu>Default User agent> Select Edit User Agent ...
4. A box opens. At middle Click on New tab>Select New User Agent.
5. In Description BOX Type your Phone Model No. suppose N97.
6. On "User Agent" BOX, clear all, and copy paste one of the following link according to your mobile phone model.
Settings for Nokia 5800
Mozilla/5.0 (SymbianOS/9.4; U; Series60/5.0 Nokia5800d-1/40.0.005; Profile/MIDP-2.1 Configuration/CLDC-1.1) AppleWebKit/413 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/413
Settings for Nokia N97

**For Other models Like Nokia5233, Nokia 5230, X6 U Can Use any of the Above mentioned settings. As these models are pretty similar.
7. Close FIREFOX and restart, Again Go to browser Tools Menu>select NOKIA N97 (or your model)
8. Then, in Firefox address bar type http://store.ovi.mobi/, which you can enter the N97 mobile phone Ovi Store.
Thats all done. You can now download mobile apps and games from nokia ovi store easily. The website will treat your browser as a mobile phone and let you download everything like on your mobile.
*Note:> Don't forget to change the user agen after you are done with ovi store. Otherwise going to gmail.com will get you to gmail mobile site which is not suitable for PC browsing. So enjoy your free tour with nokia ovi....
