Apple kicked off its Mac App Store Thursday and launched with more than 1,000 apps.
In a statement, Apple highlighted well known Mac apps like iMovie and GarageBand as well as others from Autodesk.
The Mac App Store works for Snow Leopard users, Mac OS X v10.6.6. Prices range from free to $79.99 for Aperture 3.
The most interesting item around the Mac App Store launch is how it will affect software distribution. The App Store model has been a boon for the iPhone and iPad, but Mac developers have typically gone the packaging route. Digital distribution is likely to change the equation a bit.
Some have opined that prices are going to fall quickly for traditional Mac developers.
