R.I.P. Symbian

Nokia announced in October it will be ending all developer support for MeeGo and Symbian on January 1, 2014. Well, the deadline has passed and the Ovi Store won’t accept any more apps.

Nokia announced the end of the era via the official Symbian Team account on Twitter. That was it; we are officially closed. Thank you all for the past years! — Symbian Signed Team (@ SymbianSigned)

In case you’ve missed the news, the dropped MeeGo/Symbian support and app publishing means developers will be no longer capable of pushing new
apps or updates in the Ovi Store. They will continue to receive revenue from their apps, of course, and all currently available apps in the Store will remain available for download.

So, if you are interested the Ovi Store is still open and your device isn’t rendered worthless just yet. But maybe, just maybe, it’s about time you jumped ship.
