If you are an owner of an Apple Mac you will most probably be a user of the Apple Mac App Store. The store allows access to a number of apps as well as games and other types of software. You may also be aware that Amazon has its own mobile App Store.

Today we have news that Amazon has now launched their version of the Apple Mac App Store called the Mac Download Store. It is an alternative that allows access to a lot of the same apps, games and software but the company says it even offers apps that the Apple version doesn’t.

It is for Mac OS X users same as the Apple version. The Mac Download Store currently has 51 different games titles available as well as 201 software apps compatible with the Mac. Other apps that are included are Intuit QuickBooks and Microsoft Office, an app that the Apple version doesn’t include.

Hit games such as Dragon Age: Origins are amongst the titles that feature. These downloads are accessed using Amazon accounts where the purchases can be made directly. You can check out more details about the Amazon Mac Download Store in the article at Loopinsight.
