Maemo Downloads is again open for business
Maemo Downloads, the application catalog for Nokia internet tablets is again open for business.
For some time users have not been able to authenticate to the service with their Garage accounts to add or update applications, but this has been fixed now. The problem was incorrectly configured access controls in the Garage postgres database. So, please go ahead and update any apps that have been changed in the meanwhile!
In addition to fixing the authentication we have also added support for rating and commenting applications. For example, see the Maemo Mapper entry:
The ratings differ from some other rating systems in the sense that every rating is accompanied by a comment and the name of the person who rated the app. To rate applications, log in to the catalog.
In near future we will start using rating as a sorting (and possibly filtering) criteria on the site.
