Photos, video and home-made audio beg to be shared. If you’re not showing off your snaps and passing round links to your videos, hang your head. Nokia’s Ovi Share service makes it easier than tumbling from a fallen tree to upload and share your media, and offers unlimited storage for free too.
Videos or photos can be uploaded to Ovi Share from your phone or computer, and it’s simple for other people to see them. You can share links, or tag your content so the world can find it. If you have your own website, you can even embed a slideshow of your pictures, streaming direct from Ovi.
Worried your media will get muddled up with so much storage? Don’t be. Ovi Share is super-organized, enabling you to create a clear sense of order via easy-to-use albums for specific content and tagging. It’s extremely straight forward to get to grips with, and essential for shutterbugs, film makers and audio enthusiasts.
