Desktop App Store tipped to open its doors in January
Screenshots, icons and coding for Apple's Mac App Store have emerged as we anticipate a launch in early January.
First up is evidence of the Mac App Store login page which interestingly also indicates that users will be able to gain access with an Apple account, iTunes account, or MobileMe account.
Apple iOS-like parental controls preferences appear likely according to coding which also supports a feature which allows games to be blocked for certain age groups. Lastly, there's the Mac App Store icon which you can see here located on a Mac OS X 10.6.6 dock.
Set to be available as a free download for Mac OS X Snow Leopard users, January 6th has been touted as an official launch date for the Mac App Store which coincidentally is the same day that CES 2011 kicks off.
