Amazon Releases Mac Software Store

Amazon has just released their very own “Mac Software Downloads” store (not trying Apple’s limits with the name “Mac Appstore”, huh?). Just a few months ago, Amazon released the Android Appstore to compete with Google’s Android Market, and has been quite successful due to daily sales and promotions. There are rumors that Amazon will be releasing their own line of tablets, so they’ll need to muster up every bit of app-distributing power they can if they want to compete against established competitors.

There aren’t many apps available at the moment, but if your looking to purchase a copy of TurboTax just in time for next year’s tax returns, it’s nice to have additional options. Amazon’s first offer is $5 off any game or program through June 1st.
