Apple Launches Mac App Store With 1,000 Applications

Everybody is talking about apps. It might be hard to believe now, but it wasn't so long ago that applications and app developers weren't a part of everyday conversation. ("Hey, you've got to check out Angry Birds!") But with the success of apps on Apple's iPhone and iPad, many are anticipating that the new Mac App Store, which debuted today with 1,000 apps, will be a huge hit.

As for the apps themselves, there's a mix of old and new to start with, all with a variety of prices. For example, you can buy the iPhoto, iMovie and GarageBand apps, which usually come bundled together in its iLife software suite for $49.99, as individual items in the Mac App Store for $14.99 each. At the higher end,  Aperture 3, Apple's photo editing and management software, is available for $79.99.
