Mac App Store
The Mac App Store is here to stay. I’m only utilizing it for very select situations:
Apps ONLY available on the App Store. Twitter.
Apps that I want on all of my Macs. Twitter.
I’m avoiding it for:
Apps that I want to try out first. Got burned by Newsrack - no better than Reeder or NewNewsWire at this point. If I had tried it first I would not have bought it.
Apps that are on sale. For instance, I recently bought Taskpaper on sale in a bundle. I had been waiting for weeks for it to be on sale.
Any apps I already own. Why should I re-purchase everything?
It is the last one that is the biggest barrier. I don’t see the App Store on the Mac getting SERIOUS traction until it will recognize the apps you already own and put them in the upgrade pipeline.
