    The app store is not the only thing that can't go into full screen. The majority of the apps don't actually go full screen. Apple only added full screen to applications that would benefit from it.

    Who would use the App Store in full screen anyway?

    Even though I personally can't do it [early 2008 MacBook model], my use for full screen apps would be to switch between them via gestures. So a full screen App Store could be flicked to from iTunes and iPhoto easily.

    Exactly this. I've grown to quite like the new Spaces now – flicking between iTunes/Pages/Safari is great, and it would make sense to have the same functionality across all apps.

    As an aside: Does anyone know of a way to force apps to launch in full-screen?

    I can flick through all apps with 3 fingers including the app store which is not full screen, or are you talking about another gesture????

    I have a 2007 Macbook Pro, no multitouch for me yet, but I still love full screen apps. I use hot corners to bring up mission control and look at the progress of updates without going to the app.

    When I click app store its not full screen. Even with the green + circle top left. But it lets me stretch the window all the way to the right.

    Gestures and full screen functions for the app store are added in ML. ;)
