In my post a few weeks back I announced that we intended to begin charging for our Nokia S60 application. On further reflection we’ve decided to revisit this decision and instead make all of our consumer clients free. Part of this decision was based on our challenge with iPhone OS 3.0, documented by John in the posts below, and leading us to make Easy Wi-Fi free in Apple’s AppStore. I also have to admit that Ovi seems like a much less effective vehicle for paid application distribution than we hoped, so the benefits of frictionless (ie free) distribution outweighed any consumer revenues. So, effective immediately, all our apps on the various platforms are free of charge, with the notable exception of those distributed via Nokia Download which will still get the $4.99 “try-before-you-buy” version. Thanks for all your support in the past and we hope you continue to enjoy using Easy Wi-Fi.
