Inspired by iPhone App Store, this new software Mac App Store lets you browse and buy on a database application specifically designed for Mac OS X and pre-approved by Apple. Distributed to users with an update yesterday, Apple released the new manager of applications, which currently has about a thousand software indexed. To the home of the bitten apple, the mission is clear: to replicate the success of the iPhone App Store centralizing all software for Mac OS X on a single catalog and pocketed 30% on every sale made.
The software house, then, who wants to expand its customer base will be subject to the rules imposed by Apple applications and groped so to burn the competition. “Apple has clearly been shown to have the best solution on the market. We are almost certain that the AppStore will be the main distribution platform for Macs.”
