According to my sources, the Mac App Store will be available at 12:00 pm (noon) ET on Thursday. That puts it at about 9:00 am PT where Apple is headquartered in Cupertino, Calif.
The Mac App Store lets you browse new and noteworthy apps, find out whats hot, view staff favorites, search categories and read customer ratings and reviews. Like on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, you can purchase, download and install apps in just one click and start using them immediately. Purchased apps can run on all of your personal Macs and updates are delivered directly through the Mac App Store so its easy to keep all of your apps up to date.
The Mac App Store will be available to Mac OS X Snow Leopard users as a free download through Software Update. MacStories believes it will be part of a Mac OS X 10.6.6 update. We'll let you know when it goes live!
