Mac App Store Support Coming Soon

by arn
 

Apple launched the Mac App Store last week. It seeks to replicate the massive success of the iOS App Store with Apple’s desktop machines. The Mac App Store carries a very similar structure to the iOS App Store, so it should come as no surprise that we are planning on supporting it here on AppShopper.

The Mac App Store is at its infancy right now, so the volume is significantly less. In fact, here’s a list of all new apps launched on the Mac App Store yesterday:

New Mac Apps on 1/11/2011

- Playwatch
- FileMyFiles
- Foodurama
- RightClickMP3
- Vault
- FaceTop – Facebook Photo Downloader
- Clemenza’s Notepad for Mac
- Fireplace (Yule Log) HD
- Witch
- Big Mountain Snowboarding
- Tiles
- Cleopatra: a Queen’s Destiny
- GrowlVoice
- Acupoints Ultimate
- Braid
- Chickens vs. Weasils
- uBoot – submarine game
- Aa Match Preschool Alphabet (Free)
- Postbox
- Ohm’s Law Calculator
- GeekBench 2
- QuickPick
- DocScanner
- Backdrop (Free)
- FolderWatch
- Dracula Series : La Voie du Dragon – Episode 1
- Battle Bears – 1 Mac
- Let’s Golf HD

In contrast, about 600 new apps in the iOS App Store over the same time period. Regardless, even with the lower volume, we still find it hard to discover new apps or app changes through the App Store interface. That’s why we created AppShopper, and we hope Mac support to be implemented very soon.

    Awesome! In a weird stroke of coincidence, I was coming to this site just now to inquire whether Mac App Store support would be added, and this was posted one minute prior. You guys rock!

    Great!

    (By the way, Mac or not, AppShopper links in TouchArcade game articles would be very welcome!)

    I hope u simultaneously launch the feature on your website and then with your iOS app on the same day. Cause I’d hate to have the feature on appshopper.com ONLY for a month and using the iOS app forgetting I can;t manage my mac app wish list cause u haven’t updated the app to support the feature yet. So u better be working on it for the site and the app at the same time.

    Great news! Are there perhaps plans to actually release an AppShopper for Mac app via the Mac App Store?

    I love the iOS app, though it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to add Mac support there, since it could only be used to browse. So an actual Mac app would be pretty cool.

    Pangea Arcade is going for free right now. Grab it while you can!

    This is exactly what I was hoping for. The moment the MAS launched I came here to see if you would do for MAS what you’ve done for the iOS store. I love this site and recommend it to everyone with an iOS device and will do the same now for mac owners as well.

    So….

    now that Mac App Store support is here, why not writing an article in your blog about it? I subscribed to the blog deliberately to get notice of it asap, but no…
