Well, that was fast. While it was only launched a little over 24 hours ago, the Mac App Store has already been managed to find homes for one million applications. We suspect that this will break down to approximately 500,000 downloads of Angry Birds and 500,000 of the new Twitter desktop application.
In a press release sent out earlier today, Steve Jobs indicated that he was entirely pleased by the fast adoption rate that the Mac App Store was receiving. "We're amazed at the incredible response the Mac App Store is getting," said Jobs. "Developers have done a great job bringing apps to the store and users are loving how easy and fun the Mac App Store is."
The Mac App Store launched with 1000 software applications for Mac users to download. With scheduled to be added on a regular basis, it'll be interesting to see whether or not Apple will come to find similar success to that which they've been enjoying with their iTunes App Store for years now.
