For those not aware, Apple is launching a brand new Mac App Store
on January 6, 2011. The Mac App Store promises to bring the ease and functionality of the iOS App Store (for iPhone, iPod, and iPad) to Mac computers everywhere. You’ll be able to search for thousands of different apps for your computer, and purchasing, downloading, and updating these apps should be easier than ever. The apps also promise to be portable across different Mac computers.
We at Aspyr are particularly excited about the prospects and potential the Mac App Store could have for gaming. As almost anyone that’s paid any attention to the iPhone and iPad probably know, these devices have turned into incredibly popular gaming devices, with tons of new, innovative, and accessible games available for users of all ages and interests. You’ll be able to find content from Aspyr in the Mac App Store in the opening days of the store’s launch.
However, we want to know: what do our fans and customers think about and expect from the Mac App Store? Will there still be a market for boxed retail applications? Will you still purchase your favorite games from traditional outlets, like the GameAgent store and/or Steam? Let us know in the comments if and/or how you expect the Mac App Store to change the way you use your Mac!
