Fresh off of my 2011 Tech Predictions is the Mac App Store that takes a page from the iTunes App Store for mobile devices, but for Mac laptops and desktops. As easy as it is to buy and download iPod Music, or iPhone/iPad apps, now Mac users can download apps for their Mac laptops/computers running Mac OS X Snow Leopard.
No software/CD’s needed as you are downloading apps directly to your computer using your Apple ID account. This will make downloads easier and keeping them up to date a breeze.
Some of the apps already available in the Mac App Store include:
Compartments – An inventory and catalog app that will allow you to organize and keep track of all your stuff lying around your house
LittleSnapper – A handy screen shot tool that lets you organize, categorize, and manage screenshots through the app’s image library.
Mac App Store is included in the latest Apple Software Update, so just boot up, update, and login to what Apple has in store for your Mac applications.
Is this Apple’s attempt to counter the Google Apps Marketplace? (prolly not, that place is HUGE) Or is this Apple’s way to streamline, revolutionize (and or course control) how applications are sent to your Mac devices in the same way it currently does for your iDevices?
Let me know what you think about the Mac App Store in the comments section.
