Finally, Macs Get Apps

Remember when the first iPhone came out? And you couldn’t do anything on it but mess with the browser or calculator? And then the App Store came out and suddenly the iPhone was worth having? Well, that’s basically what Macs have been like this whole time. Without an App Store of their own, they’re pretty much worthless. But, starting January 6th, no more!

Nevermind that you could always install third-party software. Nevermind that Macs actually have one of the cleanest, simplest install methods around. No. We need an App Store! Developers have been clamoring for hundreds of years that they have been completely incapable of distributing their apps in any meaningful way without an App Store. A couple decades ago, Apple launched their platform “the internet” (along with other such innovations as USB, computers, and electrons). This was a pretty good start. But ultimately, it’s only now, with the coming advent of the Mac App Store, finally developers have the ability to let people download software they have written.

The future, ladies and gentlemen!
