Apple has finally put a date to the Mac OS App Store. Beginning January 6, Mac users will be able install and update Mac apps directly from a dedicated store and even roll out a similar Windows store in the future as well. Apple plans to make the store available in 90 countries with apps going for free or paid across different genres.
The Mac App Store will work similarly to the iOS App Store where discovering apps for users will be easier than before. Developers too have the same profit-sharing ratio where they’ll get 70 percent of the proceeds acquired from any sale via the store.
The Mac App Store will be available to Mac OS X Snow Leopard users for free through a software update.
