Apple’s App Store has arrived. Apple launched its App Store Thursday which features third-party applications for the iPhone 3G one day in advance of the much anticipated iPhone 3G which goes on sale Friday. The App Store became available this morning when Apple released its 7.7 version of the iTunes software. The App Store will also be available directly from the iPhone 3G’s software.
To access the App Store you need the latest version of iTunes. As of 8:30am ET iTunes was only available via download through Apple’s iTunes download page – not through the iTunes automatic update service. The App Store is also not on the iTunes Store homepage, so click here (ONLY after you update to iTunes 7.7) to check out all the iPhone goodies. The apps can be downloaded now, but you won’t be able to use them until tomorrow when the new iPhone 3G and the iPhone software upgrade come out.
