This is episode 2 of The Nokia Blog’s Weekly Nokia News. Lots of stuff happened this past week, but I tried to cram all the important news in less than five minutes. Please let me know if I should keep doing this on weekly basis. Video after the jump (with a little blooper at the end)!
I’m currently gathering my thoughts for the upcoming review of the Nokia N9, but I wanted to show you a cool app right away. It’s called ScreenshotMee. It lets you take screenshots on the Nokia N9 by just putting your hand over the phone. It’s free at the Ovi Store (yea.. it’s still called Ovi).
Nokia is currently hiring web developers to work on the next Nokia Store. Two positions were listed on Monday at the Nokia Careers Page. Nokia aims to make this a team of about 40 people, and will gradually hire to reach this number.
Back in May, we told you that Nokia was removing the word “Ovi” by the end of 2012. If you go to the Ovi Store website right now, you may notice the Ovi logo was just replaced with Nokia’s logo. The site title was also renamed, “Nokia Store.” We’re not sure when the rebranding will be complete, but I sure like hearing Nokia Store better than Ovi Store.
The Favourite Apps widget extends the default shortcut widget by providing total of 15 spots for your favorite applications. The default widget only gives users 4 shortcuts. In addition, the widget shows the names of the applications. The default widget has no names under the icons. Video after the jump.
Here’s a quick look at the Force Control Widget for Symbian. Force Control gives you access to common settings in a few clicks. You can adjust the display brightness (25%, 50%, 100%), screen rotation on/off, bluetooth on/off, WLAN scanning on/off, and profile switching. It’s available at the Ovi Store for 99 cents.

An interesting item showed up in software update for my Nokia N8. It says BETA: Ovi Store update. The description says it is “optional and needed only if Store stopped working after update from PS1 to Belle SW.” It’s weird because my Nokia N8 doesn’t have the Belle update yet. It’s running Anna.

You will no longer see the word “Ovi” by the end of 2012. The official Nokia Conversations posted that the company made the decision to change their service branding from Ovi to nokia to centralize their services identity under one brand. The transition begins July of this year. No big changes are expected for the services experiences since this is just a name-change.
