Apple Launches First Mac App Store Section: “Personal Projects”

It’s Friday, which means Apple has refreshed the iOS and Mac App Store homepages to include new featured apps and fancy graphics to showcase products released this week. With today’s refresh, Apple has also launched the first Mac App Store section: Personal Projects, available here, aggregates apps to make your Mac “a creative hub” for professionals who want to organize their projects and ideas at home. It’s got apps for musicians, designers, photographers and video editors.

With the iOS App Store, Apple inaugurated this weekly trend of launching new sections to collect apps for a specific audience. We think the idea is very cool, but we would like to have a unified way to access all these sections Apple created in the past. Perhaps the Mac App Store will fix this.
