Apple - App Store - Buy, download, and install apps made for Mac.

With the Mac App Store, getting the apps you want on your Mac has never been easier. No more boxes, no more disks, no more time-consuming installation. Click once to download and install any app on your Mac. The Mac App Store is now available as a software update for any Mac running Mac OS X Snow Leopard.
At first look it looks similar to the iOS store. It places an icon on your Doc which can be hidden. There are plenty of applications available but I am disappointed to see that iWorks 09 has not been updated. It is getting a little out of date with the release of Office 2011 for Mac. However yesterdays iWorks update adds web sharing ability to Keynote. I am experimenting with that feature right now. I am finishing the upload of a presentation. It is interesting that the presentation is converted to the PowePoint format after it is uploaded. I will add to this post as my experience with the new features grow.

Update 10:40 AM EST

I just downloaded the free Twitter App.  Download and installation of Apps is automatic and very fast.  This is going to be a hit.
