New Nokia Download! Software for PC!

by Darla

Well this looks like a pleasant find from Howard Forums!  Nokia released a Private Beta Trial of Nokia Download! for PC.

Nokia Download! for PC is a free application that synchronizes with the Download! content on selected Nokia devices making is easy to find, try, and buy mobile content and apps from your computer.  You can select content and easily transfer it to your phone.  Now I'm not sure if this will solve the issue of content being available by region such as US residents not being able to get WB content.  But hopefully it does.  Unfortunately, the website still says "Coming Soon" so I'm not for certain if there are in fact any beta testers yet.  But I know I would like to be one of them! :)

Information taken from the How To's include:

Tips & tricks

Installing and using Download! for PC requires Nokia Nseries PC Suite or version 6.82 or later of Nokia PC Suite. If your Nokia PC Suite version is older, please update it.

Connecting

You can connect your Nokia phone to the PC using a USB cable, Bluetooth connection, or Infrared connection. To be able to connect using a Bluetooth connection, you need a compatible Bluetooth stack on your PC. Check your Nokia phone’s user guide for further details about compatibility with different Bluetooth technologies.

You can’t change the active phone connected to your PC if there are ongoing actions in Download! for PC, such as synchronization of the download history or file transfer between a phone and the PC.

If you download content using Download! on your phone while it is connected to the PC, you can select Tools>Refresh content to synchronize the download history of Download! for PC with that of your phone.

Catalogs

You can access Catalogs in Download! for PC either by selecting the Catalogs tab from the menu on the left of the screen, or by clicking the Catalogs icon in the Home view on the lower right of the screen.

Bookmarks

You can create bookmarks for your favorite Catalogs. These bookmarks will be visible in the Catalogs main view, under My Favorites.

To create a bookmark, navigate into the catalog. Click the Add to Favorites button. A window opens where you can name your bookmark.

Content types

Some content available in Download! for PC is intended only for mobile phones and some only for PCs. You can see the type of the software as a small icon on top of the content image.

Paying for content

Any payment information that you give via Download! for PC is transferred through a SLL secured connection.
