Apple launches Mac App Store

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Steve Jobs: “With more than 1,000 apps, the Mac App Store is off to a great start, we think users are going to love this innovative new way to discover and buy their favorite apps.”

As ‘we all’ know from the iOS App Store, , The Mac App Store offers apps in Education, Games, Graphics & Design, Lifestyle, Productivity, Utilities and other categories. Users can browse new and noteworthy apps, find out what’s hot, see staff favorites, search categories and look up top charts for paid and free apps, as well as user ratings and reviews.”

It will be interesting to see if the Mac App Store will become as successful as Apple’s App Store for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Obviously Apple is not as dominant as computer OS compared to its mobile iOS, but still…it could become another Unique Selling Point for Apple to sell more Macs? πŸ˜‰
