"In two days, the Mac App Store will open its gates.While there is the usual amount of speculation out there on technicalities and its potential overall success, it seems widely unclear what will happen on Opening Day."
Opening day is here so today we will find out just how on the mark he is won't we. It's an interesting article, and I don't think he is that far off. In my mind anyway, I'm expecting similar prices to what is in the iOS app store, or not too far off. I also expect that magazines in digital form should be at least half the price one would pay for a print subscription, so you can see that I get disappointed a lot. But he has a valid point in that a lot of the iOS developers will be porting their product to the Mac App store, having been used to that functionality more so than the old guard of Mac OS developers that stick to the double digit price point. So what are your thoughts, hit or miss on the Mac App store?
