Apple launches its Mac App Store today

Apple CEO Steve Jobs talked of Apple launching its Mac App Store sometime back. It became a reality today (January 6, 2011) with 1,000 Apps on Day 1.

It wason July 10, 2008 that Apple opened its iPhone App Store with 500 Apps for its legendary iPhone.

There were 10 million iPhone App downloads within 3 days of launch of iPhone App Store. The App count shot up to 1,000 in a month, 10,000 in six months, 100,000 in little more than a year and crossed 300,000 by October 2010. More than 70 billion downloads of iPhone Apps have happened till date!

Against this background one must see the launch of Mac App store. With Android Market, Samsung Market, BlackBerry App World and Nokia Ovi the mobile App market has quickly evolved within 3 years.

Will App market grow equally fast on the Desktop PC market?

Will there be a Windows App market? No one knows but it cannot be ruled out

Interesting time indeed
