Jobs reveals AppStore for Apple Mac home computers
Apple boss Steve Jobs has announced that they will be launching a new AppStore for their range of home computers and laptops while speaking at their Back to the Mac event in California.
The AppStore for Mac is coming straight to the Snow Leopard version of OS X in 90 days time bringing the kind of software accessibility that iPhone and iPad users receive to desktop and laptop owners.
Jobs stated: "The Mac App Store is going to be really great for our users. We don't want to wait for Lion. We're going to put it out on Snow Leopard, and will open within 90 days."
The new AppStore will offer the same range of free and paid Apps with Jobs estimating that it will feature a ratio of around 70 percent free to 30 percent paid Apps.
