Since developers are constantly improving their apps, the Mac App Store keeps track of your apps and tells you when an update is available — including OS X software updates.
Update one app at a time or all of them at once, for free.
You can even have your apps and OS X update automatically, so you’ll always have the latest version of every app you own.
With the Mac App Store built into OS X, getting the apps you want has never been easier.
No more boxes, no more discs, no more time-consuming installation. The Mac App Store has apps for just about everything and everyone. The Mac App Store revolutionizes the way apps are installed on a computer — it happens in one step.
Click once to download and install any app on your Mac. Enter the same i Tunes password you use to buy apps and music on your i Phone, i Pad, Mac, or i Pod touch.
The Mac App Store makes it easy to find and download Mac apps as well as widgets and extensions — like editing extensions for the new Photos app. Within seconds, your new app flies to Launchpad, ready to go.
