It’s official, the Mac App Store is coming on January 6. Apple will try to replicate the success it has had with its iOS App Store, but on its Macs. With over 300,000 apps in the iOS App Store, Apple would be a fool to ignore the ecosystem that a Mac App Store equivalent would bring.
“The App Store revolutionized mobile apps, We hope to do the same for PC apps with the Mac App Store by making finding and buying PC apps easy and fun. We can’t wait to get started on January 6.” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO.
The Mac App Store will let you browse new and noteworthy apps, find out what’s hot, view staff favorites, search categories and read customer ratings and reviews. Like on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, you can purchase, download and install apps in just one click and start using them immediately.
