p2pnet view P2P:- Umm, what’s ‘iOS’?
Known as iPhone OS prior to June, 2010, it’s “Apple’s mobile operating system”, says the Wikipedia. “Developed originally for the iPhone, it has since been used on the iPod Touch, iPad and Apple TV as well. Apple does not permit the OS to run on third-party hardware.”
“I feel for those traditional Mac developers”, says ZDNet. “They’ve bled in six colors for all these years and now they’re going to simply be blood stains on the floor of the Mac App Store.”
Yeh? Yup. Because, “Tomorrow, the sky will fall”, says the post. “Tomorrow, the iOS developers move in and the traditional Mac developers better stick their heads between their legs and kiss those price points goodbye.”
Oooookay. So what’s it all about?
“The App Store brings a world of possibilities to iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad”, says Apple, and now, “It’s about to do the same for your Mac.
“The Mac App Store is just like the App Store for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad”, it says. “So it’s as easy to find and download Mac apps as it is to add your favorite magazine to iPad or a new game to iPod touch. You can browse Mac apps by category, such as games, productivity, music, and more.”
But natch, you have to be on iTunes.
“Enter the same iTunes password you use to buy apps on iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch”, says the site. “And within seconds, your new app flies to your Dock, ready to go.”

- Mac Users. Expect great software, constantly updated, low prices, simple one-click purchase, charts, reviews, all the good stuff.
- Developers. The nimble ones.
- And the biggest winner is Apple. Again.
If you’re into making Apple / Jobs even richer than they are already by doing their value-added work for them — for free — head over to the Mac developer page.
The Mac App store opens tomorrow.
