Apple Launches Mac App Store With Over 1000 Apps
The Mac App Store is now available to all Snow Leopard users via the Mac OS X 10.6.6 update.
Apple’s new App Store promises a similar experience to the iOS App Store, with the ability to seamlessly buy and install software through an iTunes account.
The Mac App Store opened with over 1,000 free and paid apps. There is currently over 100 free apps with some of them being a “lite” version of the app.
Some of the most popular software available is Apple’s iWork and iLife suites that can be purchased individually. There’s also applications from Boinx, Autodesk, Ancestory.com and many other developers.
The layout is similar to browsing the iOS App Store in iTunes, however, Apple did use part of the UI from the iPad. This navigation bar that is located on the bottom of the iPad, is located on the top of the Mac App Store.
Apple’s new project is off to a good start and should only improve as more developers add applications to the new App Store.
