We’re happy to announce that Mac OS applications in the Mac App Store that launched earlier this month are now included on AppShopper. As with iOS apps, you can now browse and track Mac apps on AppShopper, including adding them to your Wish List and receiving email notifications of price drops and updates.
A new toggle in the upper left hand corner lets you switch between iOS and Mac apps, and all Mac apps are clearly labeled “Mac OS” next to the version number.
RSS feeds for Mac apps will be added shortly to the sidebar on the right on the What’s New tab though these will only represent some of the RSS feeds available. Any combination of the filters in What’s New can be chosen, and the corresponding RSS feed link is displayed in the upper right corner.
The Mac App Store is still quite new and doesn’t have nearly as many apps as the iOS App Store. As of this post, there are just over 1,300 apps in the Mac App Store compared to more than 300,000 iPhone and iPad apps in the iOS App Store. While we don’t expect the Mac App Store to experience the same kind of massive growth that the iOS App Store has in the past 2 1/2 years, we’re sure there will soon be no shortage of Mac apps to suit a wide range of needs in the Mac App Store.
If you use our official AppShopper iOS app, note that Mac Apps will not be visible within the app. Also, our importer tools for the Mac and Windows will only import iOS app information from your computer to your AppShopper account at this time.
