App Store hits the Mac Desktop

App store search for photography

After this morning’s update of Snow Leopard I have a new icon in the dock toolbar.  It’s Apple trying to sell stuff, using the downloadable App model that has been so successful on the iPhone/Touch/Pad.

There seem to be some significant savings vs store-bought discs for the same products, eg Aperture at £45 is about 1/3 the usual price, and I’ll be pointing this out at the Camera Club, but overwhelmingly the stock on offer is not useful to me just now, and could do with a 3 line description — more than just an icon, app-title and category — to answer the question “What will this let me do?”

I think I’ll be removing it from the dock, but it will be interesting to see if Adobe’s prices for Lightroom respond to Apple’s price-drop
