â€œThe App Store revolutionized mobile apps,â€ said Steve Jobs, Appleâ€™s CEO. â€œWe hope to do the same for PC apps with the Mac App Store by making finding and buying PC apps easy and fun. We canâ€™t wait to get started on January 6.â€
The Mac App Store lets you browse new and noteworthy apps, find out whatâ€™s hot, view staff favorites, search categories and read customer ratings and reviews. Like on iPhoneÂ®, iPod touchÂ® and iPadâ„¢, you can purchase, download and install apps in just one click and start using them immediately. Purchased apps can run on all of your personal Macs and updates are delivered directly through the Mac App Store so itâ€™s easy to keep all of your apps up to date. The Mac App Store is available to Mac OS X Snow LeopardÂ® users as a free download through Software Update.
The App Store changed the way we use our iOS devices–will the Mac App Store replicate this for our Macs? What about Cydia for Mac?
