Nokia shuts down its Ovi Share service

Nokia has sent out mails to all its Ovi Share users informing them about the sad demise of the service. For those who haven't heard of it before, Ovi Share was Nokia's version of Dropbox, which allowed those with an Ovi account to upload content such as images and videos from their phones onto Nokia's servers.

Unfortunately, this service is now shutting down. After March 13, users will no longer will be able to upload files and the last date to download any files that you may have uploaded is May 30. On May 31, the service will shut down completely.

According to Nokia the Ovi Store shutdown is "part of Nokia's revised services mission to focus on mobile and location based services". However, you will still be able to access Nokia's other services with your account.

Unfortunately for Symbian users, none of the major online storage services have a native app that can be used for storing your files online. Hopefully, Microsoft will release a Symbian version of their SkyDrive app, although we won't advise holding your breath for it.
