Nokia trumpets Ovi Store as daily downloads hit 2.3 million
When it comes to marketplaces, numbers are everything.

As such, it'll do the Ovi Store no harm that daily downloads have shot up from 1.7 million back in May to 2.3 million today.

That's according to the latest stats release by Nokia, with the Finnish firm also revealing that the marketplace is also attracting 200,000 new users every day.

Such is the Ovi Store's apparent popularity, that the company reports 70 developers and publishers – including Digital Chocolate, EA, Gameloft, and Indiagames – have amassed total downloads of more than a million.

Thanks a million

Some have gone even further, with Farm Frenzy developer HeroCraft passing the 10 million download mark – that's up from 6 million back in June.

"At Nokia, we believe that connecting people with great mobile experiences is at the heart of what Ovi is all about," said executive VP of services, Tero Ojanperä.

"Today people discover Ovi through maps, music, messaging, store and life tools. With a new generation of amazing devices, like the Nokia N8, developers are looking at

"Ovi as a good business decision and a chance to innovate and create next-generation mobile experiences for our family of new Symbian smartphones."
