Amazon already has a mobile App Store, but the company on Thursday launched the Mac Download Store.
[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]Competing directing with Apple’s Mac Store, Amazon says its store has 250 of the biggest software and game titles available for Mac. In fact, they have some titles that Apple’s store doesn’t.
For instance, one of the bigger titles on the Mac, Microsoft Office is available from Amazon, but not from Apple.
Amazon also features games from Feral Interactive, Electronic Arts and Aspyr, utilities like Roxio Toast and other titles.
Amazon said the “Mac Download store features an install-less download process where the customer gets just the product without any unwanted extras, making for faster and easier purchases. Plus, downloads are conveniently backed up in your Games and Software Library where you can download an unlimited number of times for personal use.”
