Apple opens doors to Mac App Store

Apple has today (6 January) launched the Mac App Store, which offers more than 1,000 paid and free apps for Mac computers, as it looks to replicate the success of its original iPhone outlet.

The new store, which has rolled out across 90 countries, is similar to the app store for the iPhone and iPad and requiries an iTunes account to make purchases.

It contains more than 1,000 apps at launch, and Apple has also created apps for popular, existing software, such as iPhoto and GarageBand.

Now Amazon is planning to launch its own app store for Android apps. Earlier this week, the online retailer rolled out its ‘Appstore Developer Portal,’ which allows developers to submit android apps ahead of the Amazon Appstore's launch.
