MOBILE APPLICATION MARKETS: DEVELOPER SATISFACTION
OVI Store Continues to Improve but Significant Challenges Remain
Report #1 in an ongoing series of developer satisfaction surveys.
SUMMARY
Nokia’s Ovi Store was launched a little over one year ago, May 26th 2009. Almostimmediately the company issued a statement apologizing to users who were unable toaccess the service due to “...extraordinarily high spikes of traffic...”
1
Since then there havebeen substantial improvements and the store no longer suffers from the kinds of outagesreported just after its launch. And volume has continued to scale with downloads passing1.7 million daily in April.
2
 Developers recognize the improvements over the past year and more than 80% said theywould be sticking with Nokia and Ovi with the expectation that their experience wouldcontinue to improve. But having 20% of Nokia’s “top” developers suggest that they wouldleave Ovi is certainly a sign of trouble ahead if remaining problems are not addressed, anddevelopers were quick to offer advice on what Nokia must do to keep them engaged.Number one, and perhaps the most perplexing amongst developers identified by Nokia as“best sellers,” was a concern about how many downloads these developers were actuallygetting, and the moneythey were making as a result. Amongst developers selling their application less than 20% of developers were either making as much as they had expectedor more and over 80% complained that they were making less, and some “far less,” thenthey had anticipated (see section 9 of this report). In a competitive marketplace withGoogle’s Android and Apple’s iPhone luring developers away from Nokia, this has to beNokia’s number one concern although developers offered many additional suggestionswhen asked about specific areas of the store and when given the opportunity to make opencomments about how Nokia might improve Ovi (see section 14 of this report).
