We all know that Microsoft is closing down Nokia Store in the coming months and it will be migrating the apps to Opera Mobile Store. Today, they provided more information regarding the transition process.

A three-step migration to the Opera Mobile Store

From mid-January 2015, you will be able to start migrating your content from the Nokia Publish site to the Opera Mobile Store.

To do that, you need to follow three simple steps:

  1.  First, register with Opera. This is something many developers have already done.  If you haven’t yet registered, you can do so here
  2. Next, when you receive the invitation email from us in January, you’ll need to visit the Nokia Publish site. Here you’ll be asked to give consent to have your content migrated across to Opera.
  3. Finally, you will then be asked to confirm which content you would like to migrate.

Opera will then carry out the migration within 72 hours and notify you when the chosen content appears in the Opera Mobile Store.

Importantly, you will only have the opportunity to migrate content once. After you have been through this process, any further apps you wish to transfer from Nokia Publish to the Opera Mobile Store will need to be submitted to Opera directly who will then upload them.

These steps will need to be completed by March 15th 2015. will retire completely in March and beginning April 23rd, the Nokia Publish site will be retired.
