WWDC 2012 proved breathtaking for all involved and during news of the new MacBook Air line-up and new high-end MacBook Pro, some news can get lost in the transition.

Apple’s App Store has become as famous in its own right as has its iconic products such as the Macs, iPods, iPhones and more recently The iPad.
The App Store has led a legendary journey in providing a suite of applications available from £zero to the high-end of the app sales markets. The App Store is equipped with nearly everything that anyone anywhere requires in their iPhone or iPad device and led the way with its profile ‘There’s An App for That’. Furthermore the innovative App Store has led on to new resources on phone platforms such as Windows MarketPlace and Google’s Play Store.
The App Store is not as revolutionary to mobile phone devices as had at first thought. Nokia, the ex-Number 1 hero of the mobile smartphone world has long-held an app store for games and other resources. However, it is commonly agreed that Apple has brought the App Store into World Wide recognition and one which developers have gained a preference for, when it comes to gaining monetary returns with over $5 billion already paid out to contributing developers.
