Nokia updates Ovi store: much appreciated

Well, finally Nokia updated the Ovi Store in a big way. Using the Ovi Store on my 5230 use to be a hassle. When I knew what I was looking for, there was no problem, but when I looked for something new.... well that was a challenge. You know when you look at the apps list and you press the "Load more items" button, then you scroll down, and press the same button again... Well let's say that after doing that a few times, you finally find some app that sounds good. So you want to check it out and you go into the description of that app and you either install it, or you don't... Well, when you press the Back button, SURPRISE!! You're on top of the apps list, and you have to scroll several screens down to get back where you were before. That's gone with the new Ovi Store update. Now when you press back you go exactly where you were when you decided to check that app out. So you can continue looking for more stuff.
Another thing is that now you get a 60 days offer to get some premium apps for free. I got Doodle Jump, Shazam Encore and Farm Frenzy for free, which is very cool.
Another thing I noticed is that many premium apps have now a Lite version which is free. They are pretty limited, but it's better that just a few days of trial.
Well, this update is certainly welcomed and long awaited.
Good job this time Nokia!
