Apple has announced that the Mac App Store has now reached over 100 million downloads, pretty impressive considering that the Mac App Store was launched less than a year ago.
Apple did not release any specific information about how many applications are available in the Mac App Store, although they did say there were over 500,000 applications available in their overall app store, which includes iOS apps and Mac apps.
“In just three years the App Store changed how people get mobile apps, and now the Mac App Store is changing the traditional PC software industry,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “With more than 100 million downloads in less than a year, the Mac App Store is the largest and fastest growing PC software store in the world.”
The Mac App store is obviously another success for Apple, 100 million downloads in less than a year is impressive.
