Apple's Mac App Store Now Live With 1,000 Apps

Apple kept to their 90-days word—it's January 6th, and the Mac App Store is ready for your custom. There's over 1,000 apps—both free and paid-for—for Macs, with all that's needed is Snow Leopard and an iTunes account.

You'll have to download the software update Mac OS X v10.6.6 to install the App Store, and as expected, iLife '11 programs (iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand) are sold individually through there for $15 each, along with Pages, Keynote and Numbers for $20 and Aperture 3 for $80.

True, 1,000 apps isn't that many—but as with the iOS App Store, we expect that number will grow quickly. We're going to take a big look at the Mac App Store later today, but in the meantime let us know what you think of it all, via the comments field.

This is the future folks. Look out for the Windows one in the next couple of years.

Bring on cydia and installous for desktop

Edit: I think its a good idea in principle, all apps for a system in one easy to find place as opposed to searching google, finding a site, reading up on it and then downloading the package file. But what I dont agree with is them controlling all the apps on the device, which is where cydia comes in, apps that are useful and also installous to test out apps, suppose we have that in the piratebay already.

I actually think this is a good idea, but then places such as Game/HMV/Blockbuster could be gone in the next couple of years as Apps will turn into Games, which will be accessable on PS3 or Xbox, via there version of the App store

More overpriced Apple rubbish. I'm in.

Was going to say before you edited that OS X is an open platform anyway so there would be no need for cydia/installous and the developers of those apps would have a hard time justifying it's existence on there..

Apparently Hackulous have already cracked the Mac App Store - news.softpedia.com/new…tml
