Apple set to launch Mac App Store on Jan 6

Bangalore: Apple is all set to launch its Mac App Store, an online store on January 6, 2011, where consumers can purchase Mac applications. After the launch, the Mac App Store will be available to shoppers in 90 countries, where both paid and free apps will be available, reports Paul McDougall of Information Week."The App Store revolutionized mobile apps," said Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a statement. "We hope to do the same for PC apps with the Mac App Store by making finding and buying PC apps easy and fun. We can't wait to get started on January 6," Jobs added.
Similar to the iPhone store for the iPhone, app developers selling apps through the Mac App Store will get 70 percent of the profits. Moreover, they need not to pay any fees regarding hosting, marketing, or credit card processing. 
Apple will add Mac App Store support to users of OS X 10.6 or Snow Leopard. The users will also get a free download facility through a integrated update mechanism.According to analyst, the Mac App Store would be 'disruptive' to the traditional software channel, as many Mac developers are likely to sell their apps through the new App Store directly to customers.
