In other Apple news, it seems that the Verizon iPhone could be closer to launch than we thought. Find out more after the break.
Earlier, I told you about five Mac Apps that you should download now, but for every one of those, there are hundreds more to check out. Some of you may have been thinking that the Mac App store would be just like the iTunes store — fun and cheap apps — but it's like a high-end department store where some major cash can be dropped. For example, all of the iLife apps have been split up to purchase alone (iPhoto will run you $15), and there are other apps that act more like software you'd buy for serious work or productivity. Check out these five apps I'd love to buy, but will be adding to my wish list for now.
- TapeDeck ($25) — This cool audio recorder looks like a mixed tape and seems super easy to use. Just click "record" and your tape starts rolling (or, recording). Once you record more than one "tape," they'll start to pile up and look just like your old music tower.
- Debt Quencher ($15) — I may go into debt by buying this app, but it seems helpful enough. Just enter in three numbers, and Debt Quencher will tell you how to pay down your debt fast.
See the rest of the list after the break.
The Apple Mac App store launched this morning with hundreds upon hundreds of apps to choose from. Like the iTunes store for your Mac, you can download these apps easily thanks to the Mac App store widget on your Mac's toolbar. While we're still browsing through all of the available apps, I've rounded up five that I think you should consider downloading right away. Of course, you'll need Mac OSX 10.6.6 to launch the new Mac App store, which you can download through the Apple store now.
Unfortunately the answer is no, you won't be able to transfer or share apps between mobile devices and your desktop or laptops. Will that change in the future? At this point it's unlikely, but that model seems to work out just fine for Amazon and its Kindle!
