Earlier today (Jan 6, 2011), Apple announced the opening of Mac App Store for business. With over 1,000 paid and free apps, the Mac App Store requires Mac OS X 10.6.6, available for download via Software Update.
Pages, Keynote, and Numbers – three components of Apple’s iWork productivity suite are now sold individually through the Mac App Store for $19.99 apiece. The total of the three pruducts, $59.97 is a discount when compared to the original $79.00 for iWork on physical media. Similarly, Aperture 3 in the Mac App Store costs only $79.99, a huge savings on the $199 price when purchased in store. Saving in the purchase of iLife ’11 in the Mac Store is however minimal.
