For people who bought this through the App Store, how was your update delivered? Via Software Update or via the Mac App Store?

Good question. I bought mine from the App store and just tried to update using Software updates and it was not includes in the update, only SL 10.6.7. I then opened the App Store and it showed that I needed to update - see screen shot below

Still wierd it costs 3 times more pre-installed, than in the appstore.

This is more than weird, it is just wrong and misleading - designed to trick new users/buyers into paying a premium. Apple is removing all boxed software from their stores including MobileMe.

I also suspect that the days of paying less for new versions for existing owners is gone. So Aperture 4 will not cost less than Aperture 3 but the same price, $79 just like iLife and iWorks.

I'd be very happy to welcome Aperture 4 now :D

So would I but my guess is another full year - 2 years between versions. Adobe runs like clockwork at 18 months. Also, if A3 is any indication, it would be best to wait until after the first major update to get out the bugs since A3 was released in almost beta form.

I am thinking about buying Aperture 3. I have just one question:
Will I be able to install it on both my Air and iMac, if I log in to my iTunes account on both computers and download after I have purchased? Or can I just do one installation?

Start the 'App Store' app and click on the 'updates' icon. This should do it! :)

Yeah, anything bought through the App Store gets updated through the App Store, even Apple software that would have previously updated using System Update like the iWork and iLife applications.

The App Store doesn't recognize ANY app on my folder. Granted i have yet to spend a penny at that store.

Not only that but with the AppStore edition you get to install it on up to 5 computers where as the media you can only legally install onto one.

There are still people out there buying the physical media; I just had a person purchase my old iLife '11 media because he wanted garage band - ignoring the fact that he could have bought it through AppStore for 1/5 the price I sold the media to him for - plus install it on up to five computers.

^ It may be cheaper and better to buy it from the App Store, but with a physical copy at least if something wrong happens to the computer you don't have to go through all sorts of hassle to get it reinstalled.

Just curious.. In reference to the $79 price for Aperture 3, does anyone think that this has to do with the poor reviews/performance of the new iPhoto 11? It seems somewhat coincidental that Apple releases a buggy and slow iPhoto 11, it gets mediocre reviews, and then all of a sudden Aperture can be bought for $79.

The only reason I think this is I have a copy of iLife11, but do not want to upgrade now due to the many reported iPhoto 11 issues and am now looking at Aperture...

You already could, I think they just improved part of it behind the scenes or something.

I had used iPhoto and then started using aperture and imported my entire library.

As did I. Did you continue to have the same images in both? I had a massive iPhoto Library at the time so now have two massive libraries because I love both apps and both are useful for different reasons. Did you ditch iPhoto?

I migrated from iPhoto to Aperture 1.5 when it came out. After I was sure everything was good-to-go (and had my old iPhoto library in a working backup), I nuked the iPhoto library.

Because Aperture can't, I still use iPhoto every year to make a calendar for my mother-in-law for Christmas; I simply export the pictures I think I might want for the calendar and import them into iPhoto and go to it. Everything else Aperture does better.

I can't comment on the App store vs. retail versions, though think it's silly to have two prices. I've got a lot more invested in Aperture than the $80 App Store price, and I don't care.

Yeah, I imported the library to Aperture (was already Aperture 3 at this point), and made sure everything was there. I then deleted my iphoto library so that I wouldn't be taking up space. I even went through and moved a lot of the photos out of the 'iPhoto' folder on the left menu in Aperture and into proper projects as if I had been using Aperture from the start.

I use time machine to back up my Mac onto a Raid1 NAS, plus I set up an Aperture Vault onto my external media drive, so I'm covered in case something goes wrong.
