Mac App Store Achieves 100 Million Mark in Downloads

Another achievement for the Apple company!

At first, people have doubts whether it will succeed but Mac App Store definitely did work and has now reach the 100 million mark in downloads.

 

Apple opened up the store last year as a place for Mac users to purchase software. It works very similar with the iTunes App Store. It also follows the 70-30 revenue scheme where the developer shares 30 percent of the sale with Apple. This is applicable unless the app is free.

However, the Mac App Store is not the exclusive seller of Mac software. There are other sites like MacUpdate.com which also generate decent downloads of 100,000 a day. But Mac App store still remain the biggest online software store in the world.

The Back to Mac event organized by Apple made people giddy about the new MacBook. Unfortunately, it was announced that Mac App Store can't make it on Dec.13,2010. And there are more bad news: Game Center & In App Purchases will not be present as well.

Apple informed App Store developers that two major iOS app store features isn’t coming out on 2010. These features are the Game Center and in app purchases. In the app purchases, developers will be allowed to create only “freemium” app model. This means they can sell the app for free and let the users buy more features over time.

Meanwhile, Game Center will also not make its way to Mac and this is something unexpected. With all the upcoming and current games and the device, Game Center would be a wonderful addition for the social experience parse. It could have even integrated with iOS leader boards and for iOS versions of Mac games.

There is also the news that December 13 launch will be delayed into January 2011. These issues should be addressed by Steve Jobs and his colleagues right away.
