Apple’s Mac App Store Opens With More Than 1,000 Apps

Apple this morning announced that the Mac App Store is now open for business, as previously announced, with more than 1,000 free and paid apps.

The Mac App Store brings the iTunes App Store model straight to the Mac – it’s available for Snow Leopard users through Software Update as part of Mac OS X v10.6.6.

Note: it’s a separate app, so don’t go looking for it in iTunes.

Apple software is of course in the store, from iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand ($14.99 each) to Pages, Keynote and Numbers ($19.99 each). Aperture 3 is available for $79.99.

Other apps include software from Autodesk, and Boinx. To find out more about developing for the Mac App Store, head on over here.
