Company of Heroes, one of best RTS games around and a personal favorite of mine, has landed on the Mac App Store. Published by Aspyre — a company that specializes in bringing great PC games to the Mac — Company of Heroes Complete: Campaign Edition includes the single player campaign from CoH, plus content and campaigns from the expansions CoH: Opposing Fronts and CoH: Tales of Valor.
Apple has announced earlier this morning that the Mac App Store broke the 100 million downloads milestone in less than a year. The App Store for iMac and Macbook users officially opened on Jan 9th, 2011.
“In just three years the App Store changed how people get mobile apps, and now the Mac App Store is changing the traditional PC software industry,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “With more than 100 million downloads in less than a year, the Mac App Store is the largest and fastest growing PC software store in the world.”
It is worth noting that the 100 million mark comes from the “thousands” of free and paid Mac App Store apps. By comparison, the iOS App Store houses more than half a million apps, with more than 18 billion downloads and more than 1 billion downloaded apps per month. The full press release can be found after the gap.
Nearly a month after the launched of the Mac App Store, Apple is now finally allowing developers to generate promo codes for their Mac Apps. For end users, they can be redeemed via the “Redeem” section found in the Quick Links box within the Mac App Store.
You can now generate promo codes for your Mac apps in iTunes Connect. These promo codes can be redeemed in any Mac App Store worldwide. For each version of your app, you can request up to 50 promo codes.
Developers, if you have some codes for the Mac you’d like to pass on, hit us up at info[at]touchmyapps.com and we’ll share them with our followers via Twitter.[via MacStories]
Apple has a great history of computer design, and these two words – computer and design, together with innovation and user experience obsession, are what made Apple and Steve Jobs what they are today.
However, in Apple’s world of perfect user experience, there’s always been one major problem – the user. The stupid thing would constantly alter it – either installing “useful” crap from all over the internet, or just opening too many apps and calling tech support because their computer is suddenly slow.
