Top 10 Mac App Store Apps

It was just a matter of time before Apple sprinkled its App Store magic on the Mac, and it was definitely worth the wait. It’s just as easy to discover apps as it is on mobile devices such as the iPad and iPhone, and you can purchase and install apps with a single click. Just as you’d expect, it’s easy to update all your apps at once. Plus, many apps (such as games) run at full screen, so you can concentrate on what you’re doing without being distracted by the dock or menu bar. No wonder Apple enjoyed 1 million downloads the very first day the store opened.

Now comes the tough part: deciding what to download. We ransacked the Mac App Store to find our top 10 picks. These apps will reinvigorate your Snow Leopard machine with tools for faster searches, easy photo editing, better weather reports, and simple sketching. Don’t worry, Angry Birds made the list, too.
