It has now been roughly 24 hours since Apple launched the new Mac App Store, therefore we thought we would ask our readers whether they were experiencing any problems with the digital distribution platform as we are hearing quite a few reports of problems.
A recent Engadget article suggests that some Mac App Store users receive an error message which reads “unknown error occurred (100)” when first launching the store after installing the necessary update, you can see the exact error message below.
If you check out this Google Realtime link you can see a huge response on Twitter suggesting that some people are less than happy with the Mac App Store, that said other Tweets suggest that the service is great.
With millions of Mac users out there it is not surprising to hear that some users are experiencing problems, to be honest with you it sounds like an extremely small minority of people who are affected, however there are also a few niggling issues which are annoying consumers.
A recent PCWorld article takes a deep look at the Mac App Store and gives us some hands-on feedback, on the whole things seem fine, one small problem reported by Macworld’s Roman Loyola suggests that the Mac App Store has some problems recognizing software which is already installed, such as iWork ’09 and Evernote, however I would imagine that this could be smoothed out with a small software update.
An article posted on RevertToSaved is quite critical of the Mac App Store’s user interface, so much so that it makes the writer want to “kick a swan”, apparently the clarity is not great and the toolbar is poor, check out the article for yourself here.
We would love to receive some feedback from our readers, therefore feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below. Are you experiencing problems with the Mac App Store? Do you like the design?
