Mac App Store sees 1 million downloads in 24 hoursBy Emil Protalinski
Even before it was released yesterday, the Mac App Store was cracked. By installing Kickback, users will be able to pirate any application in the store. Interestingly though, the creators have decided not to make the crack available until February 2011. There is still good news for Apple: the company has announced that over 1 million apps have been downloaded from the Mac App Store in the first 24 hours.
The Mac App Store launched yesterday with more than 1,000 free and paid apps in Education, Games, Graphics & Design, Lifestyle, Productivity, Utilities, and other categories. The store is only available for Snow Leopard users through Software Update as part of Mac OS X v10.6.6.
"We're amazed at the incredible response the Mac App Store is getting," Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO, said in a statement. "Developers have done a great job bringing apps to the store and users are loving how easy and fun the Mac App Store is."
