As part of the new Lion OS.
Well, about time. Apple has announced that it will be introducing an app store for its popular Mac operating system. It will be part of the new Lion OS, scheduled to arrive in Summer 2011.
The Mac app store will work similar to the one for the iPhone and iPad. Users will be able to download apps and games through the store, a one step process that will automatically download the app and take care of the installation. The Apps Store will keep track of all the downloaded apps and offer updates whenever they are available.
The Mac App Store will launch on January 6, 2011.
