The application is offered for free, and music fans can use it to easily play and organize their songs on their Nokia handset. The new version of Nokia Ovi Player, 2.1, comes around with a nice range of enhancements, as well as with new features and a series of fixes. Moreover, it seems that users can also enjoy a more robust application with this release, and that it has been also improved so as to be more memory efficient when compared with previous versions.
The release notes of Nokia Ovi Player 2.1 include:
– With the latest Nokia Ovi Player you now can automatically import your music library from iTunes and all the manual playlists that you created in iTunes (however, iTunes DRM files and smart playlists will not be imported).
– There are new tooltips for tracks in the Playlists and Player Queue. These tooltips are visible when hovering over a track and will show you Artist, Album and Artwork for the track.
– We’ve made it easier to select the Music Store for your region (note that you will need a credit card for that region to purchase any tracks) and change the Proxy settings. Just hit F4 key and all this pops up in the Options dialogue window.
However unlike other releases, this is an optional update and you can update to the latest version by clicking on ‘Check for updates…’ from the Help menu in Ovi Player.
