Apple launches app store for Mac

The Mac App Store has launched, freshly stocked with more than 1,000 OS X applications. The store comes as part of an OS X update, version 10.6.6, and is a standalone application rather than being yet another add-on to the already-creaking-and-bloated iTunes.

The store works a lot like the iOS App Store we know already: You sign in with your Apple ID, and then you can shop. Buy a Mac app, and the payment is charged to your registered credit card account. The app downloads automatically and is placed in the applications folder, with a convenient shortcut placed in the dock. (The icon actually leaps from the store window and lands in the dock — neat.)
