Australian mobile app developer Dale Rankine has made Nokia’s Calling All Innovators global top 10 for apps developed using the Ovi App Wizard.

Dale earned his spot in the final of the Ovi App Wizard category after developing a fun mobile application for www.toytragic.com, a website dedicated to his passion for collecting toys and other bits and pieces of pop culture.

Rankine said, “The idea for creating the app came from a need to make the content of the site more easily accessible to readers and creating a presence for Toy Tragic in an app store ecosystem.

Creating the app using the Ovi App Wizard was a simple process; the web interface is easy to use, and the direct integration with Ovi Store and automatic publishing makes it one of the most straightforward app store platform experiences. It’s another way to make your web content more readable on handsets and tap into people’s demand for mobile apps at the same time.

Rankine has been distributing apps in the Ovi Store since its launch in May 2009, with apps such as Cipher, GRORBS and Pallaggio. He currently works as an experience architect leading a team of developers at Vodafone Hutchison Australia called Appland. Dale is one of 10 finalists to win two new Nokia devices and is now in the running for the top prize of US$5,000 and to be crowned wizard of the apps. The winning app will be the one that receives the most downloads on Ovi Store before the end of August.
