Video How to: Redownload Applications from the Ovi Store (and other content!) version 1.05 (387)

Redownloading lost content from the Ovi Store was once a major hurdle. From not being able to at all to having to contact support to email you back with a 2-hour window in which you can download  your app.

Now (as it should have been all along)  you can redownload your paid applications!:

  1. go into “My Stuff” within the Ovi Store app (Left of the recommended bar – this is “My Download History” view of all content; apps, videos, wallpapers, themes and ringtones, Free and Paid) and
  2. just redownload your purchased applications (No longer does it say “Purchase” for your purchased apps, you can redownload your paid apps as you wish.)

You have to make sure that you have the latest 1.05 (387). You’ll get an automatic prompt to update Ovi Store when you start the Ovi Store App.

As you can see from the screenshots below, there are way too many clicks for an update when really it should just be one click.

Do I want to update? Yes? Done.

It would also have been nice to be able to filter out “My Download History” for paid/free apps, but one step at a time, eh, for Ovi Store?
