The Mac App Store opened for business on January 6, 2011 with 1,000 apps.
Designers will be happy to know that there is an entire category devoted to Graphic & Design Apps.
While some Apps may cross-over into other categories such as Photography, Utilities, and Developer, there is a growing list of Graphic & Design Apps and new titles are literally added every day.
Users can login with their iTunes password and can purchase a new application and download it immediately without the need for serial numbers and time-consuming installation processes. They’re also updated automatically through the Mac App store.
