The Mac App Store’s Biggest Problem

Ian Mackay on using the Mac App Store.

The categories are inconsistent, applications that follow a similar paradigm to others only show up when the developer specifies the right keywords, and unless the developer mentions a feature specifically or includes it in the screen shots of the interface, you won’t know if the application includes it. (Sure, you can go and trawl each developer’s web site, but then where’s the value in the App Store?)
