The Mac App Store now has over 10,000 apps. That is according to website Mac Génération. Apple has yet to announce the number, but it’s possible that they will as that makes for a nice-sized online market dedicated to one operating system.
The Mac App Store launched in January 2011, and doesn’t’ seem to have lost any traction. While some are not fans of the platform as they feel it’s just another brick in Apple’s walled garden, it’s made it easy for Mac users to safely, quickly and easily download applications designed for their computer.
Upon it’s January 6, 2011 launch, the Mac App Store had about 1,000 apps available. So the growth is steady, but it is nothing compared to the iOS App Store, which now has 600k apps.
