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.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
