Apple announces Mac App Store!

Yesterday one of the biggest news from Apple was the Mac App Store based upon the popular iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad App Stores. According to Apple, the App Store will offer one-click download of Mac apps, auto-installation, auto-updates, furthermore all the apps you buy are licensed for use on all your personal Macs, so no more license restrictions.

A Mac App Store is something that has been suggested in the past by press and readers alike, but few thought one would ever materialize. It will be interesting to see how Mac developers respond to this and if any major developers (like Adobe, Microsoft, etc.) join in. The Mac App Store will be a stand alone app available for Snow Leopard and Lion.

Application submissions start in November and the store opens 90 days from today.
