How to use the Mac App Store
App Store
Apple recently shipped their Mac App Store in a Software Update to all Macs running Snow Leopard. Make sure you update to version 10.6.6 to add this gem to your Mac and dock.

After you launch the App Store you are presented with something that you are used to; The Apple App Store. Here you can safely shop for your favorite Mac applications (pending that you need an update or upgrade). For now apps you buy from the App Store will be considered new purchases, so if you have version 2.01 of a particular app and need that update to 2.02. Don't get it from the App Store as it will be a new purchase.
