If you’ve used a previous iteration of GarageBand for OS X, the update to version 10 of the software for OS X Mavericks shouldn’t require too much convincing. It’s essentially a new iteration of the same high-powered set of features with additional features to boot. But what about those users who want to pay the cash to grab this app from the Mac App Store for the full price - those that haven’t purchased a piece of OS X hardware in the past couple of months (and from this point forward) that haven’t had the GarageBand experience? For those of you there, there’s this.

Apple Volume Purchase Program coming to Mac Apps for Education

If you've seen the likes of the Apple Volume Purchase Program in the past, you're likely part of an Education or Enterprise-based organization, and you've likely wished they had the same program for Mac Apps as well. While this program had only worked with iOS-based apps and books in volume in the past, Apple has issued a note to developers today letting them know about a Mac-aimed program appearing soon.

Mac App Store hits 10,000 Apps: here’s the best

As the Mac App Store passed 1 year in business earlier this year, so too has the store this month passed the 10,000 applications - with some surprising entries sitting at the top of the charts this week. Some unsurprising entries into each of the three "top" lists on the Mac App Store are Apple-made apps OS X Lion, iPhoto, and Keynote. You'll find several apps you may have never heard of before today as well, especially in the "Top Free" section of the store.
