Apple’s Mac App Store has hit 10,000 applications, reports French Apple site MacGeneration, which uses its own tracking system to analyze App Store content. According to their report, the milestone was reached, although Apple has not publicly announced it.
In 2011, Apple introduced the Mac App Store with more than 1,000 applications, including Apple’s iWork and iLife suite of software. Apple also released OS X 10.7 Lion, its latest Mac OS exclusively via the Mac App Store.
To date, Lion is the most popular and highest paid application available on the Mac App Store. The next version of Mac OS X, Mountain Lion, will also be made available in the Mac App Store.
Last December, Apple’s Mac App Store passed 100 million downloads, making it the “largest and fastest growing PC software store in the world”.
