Welcome to Mac App Store: Population 10,000

When Apple first launched the Mac App Store in January of 2011, it featured just over 1,000 apps. Today, it boasts a number 10 times that. As noted by MacRumors and MacGeneration, the Mac App Store now hosts well over 10,000 apps — 10,334, to be exact. So, a new milestone to add to the 100 million app downloads mark announced last December.

Now, 10,000 apps is a paucity compared to the 600,000 or so apps available in the iOS App Store. But remember, the Mac App Store is a PC software store that’s changing a longstanding software purchasing paradigm. And changing a decades-old paradigm is far more difficult than creating a brand new one.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
