    "Where did it all go wrong?"

    August 4, 2011  |   By eezee_cnet

    Pros

    None whatsoever.

    Cons

    This is the ultimate definition of bloatware.

    Summary

    I have a theory that this huge waste of software engineering, called Ovi Suite, was a prelude to Nokia's demise in the mobile market.

    Just look at it: All shiny. Pretty.
    Now, use it: Slow. Buggy. Loss of previously available features (PC Suite). Loss of data.

    It's not user friendly, it doesn't aid users in some important data back-up needs, at all! Wanna back-up (some of) your SMS's? Forget it! Sync Lotus Notes? Forget it! That's amazing...

    Who OK-ed this? None of the developers saw how absolute terrible it really is? It's mind boggling this piece of binary data ever got published into the real world.

    It's even more amazing that this bloatware still exists! If I were Nokia, I was pulling this from the net like lightning. It does terrible damage to an already damaged reputation...

    Do not use this software, ever.
    Get PC Suite instead (not perfect, but it has the user of a Nokia phone at full control) and avoid any update to Ovi Suite.
