According to the latest research report from Distimo, Apple must be happy with the debut success of the Mac App Store. Based on the findings by Distimo - a firm that monitors information across various competing app stores - Apple is making bank on the popularity of most of the young store's content offerings. Incredible but true, 88% of all Mac App Store apps are paid, while a scant 12% remain free.
Less than two months after the launch of the Mac App Store, a top 300 Mac application already generates half the revenue of a top 300 iPad application on average.
Still, the Mac App Store has an excellent chance to catching its siblings in the digital download space. Distimo reports that the typical paid iPhone app is $1.57. The typical Mac App Store offering is a whopping $11.21. As Mac Store Apps become more popular, they will likely continue to pull in big bucks for Apple. For the time being, The Mac App Store has 2,225 applications available.
