Late last week, sister site AppShopper began tracking the Mac App Store for new apps, updates and price drops. Beyond those raw lists, the Popular view offers a look at the apps with the most activity amongst other AppShopper users. AppShopper has provided the same service for the iTunes App Store, allowing users to compile their own App wishlists to follow sales and app updates. Also tracked are the Top 200 Paid and Free Mac Apps for various categories.

The Mac App Store presently offers only 1638 apps, but is seeing daily new apps as well as constant pricing changes. A few notable price drops in recent days:

- Braid - $9.99 -> $1.99
- Delicious Library 2 - $39.99 -> $29.99
- Dr. Seuss's ABC - $24.99 -> $8.99

Apple launched on January 6th alongside the Mac OS X 10.6.6 update. The Mac App Store will also be a large component of Mac OS X Lion which is due this summer.

It just goes to show you how many people are treating the Mac App Store just like the iOS one.

The Dr Suess living book software is excellent - I had the originals back when my son was little, 10 years ago or so. I've just bought them all again on the Mac App store so my two young girls can enjoy them too. They're some of the best educational software you're likely to find.

braid for 2 bucks? :eek:

Shameless side-promotion.
Do you realize how much useful this is for anyone with a Mac? And do you realize this is a mac site? If they post about some new section in the MR forums (or post about some forum milestone like 1000k threads in MR forums), will you think thats shameless side-promotion too?

My parents bought me the Living Books programs when I was a toddler (I am now 14). I still run them occasionally in the SheepShaver PowerPC emulator for my younger siblings.

Even these tiny mentions of OS X Lion are starting to excite me. Crossing my fingers for a fresh updated look - Snow Leopard skipped all that.

So I'm not seeing an update for the AppShopper app in the App Store. I'm also not seeing the listed apps on AppShopper app. How's this work?
sorry, App support for Mac App Store isn't get in place. Will have to wait for a future update.

That is pretty crazy how these sites are able to track every app. That's gotta be quite a bit of server power behind it, but either way, this is a good thing for Mac users.

"Facetime for Mac" is 100% Apple and NOT availalable on the App Store WT# ? You can download it from Apple.com.
