God bless those rumors, they were right on the mark yet again. Although the online Apple Store is down at this writing after being crushed by overnight iPhone 4 and updated Mac mini orders, an official Apple Store app has indeed appeared in the App Store and is available to download now.
In one of the most meta things we've heard lately, MacRumors believes that Apple could soon release an iPhone app via the App Store designed to browse the online Apple Store.
