Why the Mac platform needs an app store
The Mac and iPhone platforms are very different. The iPhone sandboxes all third party apps and its doesn’t allow an app to continue on in the background after the user dismisses it using the Home button.
The Mac has a large screen built for windowed multitasking, and apps not only coexist but spawn their own plugins and frameworks and runtimes. There are limited benefits to simply imposing an iPhone model on the Mac, but there are many drawbacks.
For that reason, I’m proposing a limited Mac software store that can do for third party developers what the App Store did for iPhone titles, one that creates markets that currently don’t exist and rewards both developers and users with a functional business model for suppling new software features.
