The iPhone App Store appears to have gone live as of a couple hours ago, at least for developers. Everyone should be able to see it soon. Here’s a quick look from our perspective.
There are 500 apps on the store right now. Over 200 are in the entertainment category, many of them are games. Social networking is one of the largest categories with 30 apps. There are some expected names, but zintin is the only app that allows you to discover the people around you and see when your friends are nearby. We also may be one of the few social apps that doesn’t require you to sign your friends up to be useful.
We’ll keep the news coming, but check out the iPhone App Store now!
