Nokia's Ovi App Wizard Simplifies App Creation for the Masses
Nokia today made a beta software program available called the Ovi App Wizard. The App Wizard is a simple tool that lets users piece together any RSS or Atom feed — including Facebook and Twitter content — and publish the content as an "app." According to Nokia, users have to prove that they own the content in order to publish an app. For example, despite the ease with which anyone could create a PhoneScoop.com application, only PhoneScoop would be allowed to do so. The tool is more meant for users to aggregate their own social networking and feeds-based content into a single reference point on their handsets. There is a approval process, and Nokia says that most app should be approved within 24 hours. The site tools are free to use.
