I believe Jolla store will be well implemented in china because China is one of jolla's launch markets for its upcoming handset.

No ad in China then no paid app. In-app purchase might be the way to go but honestly with no future in Nokia Store, I won't rush to implement IAP. Besides, the price in China is set rather low (one sale in US = 6 sales in China) that losing China isn't that bad.

I hope Jolla Store will be more reasonable...

Just curious can you tell me this forum url , I will like to join and say it's ok guys you can steal me but I am here and open to existing ideas ... a localisation file would help too .... (or relay this sentence in Chinese )


Do you think publishing crapified version with ads could help ... I dont want to spend some time on this ad bizness but this could be an alternative ... so any experiences worth to be studied ... anyone ? any apps use ads ?

I am also wondering if this is affecting all nokia platforms : symbian etc

Come on guys, don't try to f**k the goverment, they are all ugly

But for me there is a real existing problem with the chinese "market". There are thousands of offline-dictionary downloads from china. In comparison, there are 2 payed DingMee downloads from the store

Thats the reason I will block connections from china to my web server. My account covers only 100GiB/month, every MiB more will be very expensive.

TOR has been available for the N900 very early, how about the N9?

if you install TOR on the N9
rout OVI store or how is it called these days over TOR with non Chinese identity.
can you then download a paid app by credit card payment method?

But I wonder if the most popular payment method in China is credit card.. Probably phone operator billing?

TOR is an anonymity network. Never, NEVER use it to send personalized data, like logins or credit card info!

I think the point here is that you just hide your location to get the option to buy stuff that is normally denied in China?
First you have to ask yourself: is it life threatening to try purchase an app on that ******ed ovi store,

if yes, ok then don't send your credit card info.

In General if I had to follow your advice (which is good as a rule of thumb) I could never anonymously login via TOR to post on a forum / social network / service that requires any form of registration.
