So, that Mac App Store thing you’ve probably noted some fuss about the last couple days? Here’s a nifty tip from Daniel Jalkut for some fun with that:
I can’t help myself.
- Quit App Store.app
- Open Terminal
- defaults write com.apple.appstore ShowDebugMenu -bool true
- Relaunch App Store
Enjoy it while you can. I’m sure it will be gone in the next update, especially if anybody at Apple sees this post.
Heh. Yes, no doubt it will be, but there’s some fun stuff to play with in the meantime there!
Aaaaaand while you’re checking out the Mac App Store, one of our little troll productions made it in for opening day: a version of the SpinImage DV 3D imaging product,
Going by the first three days, the strategy seems to be getting off to a decent start — but we need to wait and see whether these App Store version purchases translate into upgrades to non-AppStore premium versions before making any grand pronouncements on its effectiveness. However, even from results to date we can make a tentative presumption that having a feature-limited version for sale on the App Store is significantly better marketing than having a full version time-limited demo available advertised via Google AdWords is, judging by what we’ve been told of how that was going in the pre-App Store days.
