1 milion de descarcari din Mac AppStore in prima zi


Mac AppStore-ul are abia o zi de cand a fost deschis si Apple a anuntat astazi ca a inregistrat peste 1 milion de descarcari. Cifra este foarte foarte mare avand in vedere ca e abia prima zi de cand a fost deschis Mac AppStore-ul si sunt abia 1000 de aplicatii disponibile in el iar preturile nu sunt chiar atat de mici. Printre cele mai populare aplicatii din noul Mac AppStore se numara: Angry Birds, Twitter, Flight Control dar si aplicatiile Aperture care a fost disponibila la promotie astazi. Acesta este doar inceputul pentru Mac AppStore deoarece in curand numarul de aplicatii va creste simtitor si probabil la conferinta pentru prezentarea iPad 2 Apple va anunta ca are deja 5 – 10.000 aplicatii acceptate si o rata zilnica de 5 milioane de descarcari.
