Amazon opens Mac-friendly download store in UK


Mac owners in the US have had the ability to purchase and download software from Amazon for quite some time. Now Electronista is reporting that the online retailer has opened at Mac-friendly download store in the United Kingdom.

The store offers software downloads for Mac and Windows, and implies that Amazon might be providing similar country-specific digital stores going forward. At the present time, there's not exactly an avalanche of Mac-specific software in the store compared to the US store; the UK store currently has fewer than a hundred titles, while the US store features a whopping 1,372 results.

What can you purchase from the digital software store in the UK right now? Mostly Microsoft Office and Adobe products, as well as a handful of games. The store is still shown as being in beta right now, so UK Mac owners can expect to see the selection of apps increase as time goes on.
