How do I get my iLife applications in my purchased apps list in the App Store? I have the DVD that came with my early 2011 MBP but I'd rather have the download option.

You can't unless you purchase them again. In that case I'd wait until the next major update. Since all updates come through the App Store anyway it's not a big deal really.

Or iTunes 10.7 :rolleyes:

According to all rumors to date we'll see iTunes 11 in September alongside iOS 6. Which is supposed to be a big overhaul, but we all heard that one before. I believe Apple themselves released a statement about their user base not being interested in Ping and it being axed in the next major release. However, it's highly likely Ping will be replaced by Twitter/Facebook integration. I'm not sure what those roll eyes are about?

They are about the fact that we’ve been waiting for a good 5 years for iTunes 11, a version that is
1. completely rewritten in Cocoa on OS X
2. designed to fit in Windows
3. optimized as it should on both OS X and Windows

iTunes is already rewritten in Cocoa. I think Apple did that with version v10.5? Personally I couldn't care less about the Windows version.

Me either. But I do care about Apple’s reputation because people get extremist about Apple products and when I take one out of my bag or pocket, people do comment positively or negatively. Bad experiences are generally related to iTunes on Windows. If only they could nail the next release and make one of the greatest apps ever...

People react one way or another when I use my Nokia Lumia 900 too. Can't be bothered by it.

Oh yeah, me too. It's just that the App Store performs so slowly. It's like visiting a website. :/


Just out of curiosity, is your system on an SSD? I thought the App Store was really laggy too when I was using a very slow HDD (the program was slow and laggy), but after upgrading to an SSD it was much snappier. I might also have less latency with Apple servers.

You'll still get updates if you have them installed through the App Store. But in order to download them from the app store you have to repurchase.

It IS a website. Even the toolbar is.

I have a regular 7200rpm desktop HDD in my iMac. The App Store app itself launches instantly.

Yeah I know. The toolbar is Aqua, what makes you say it's a website? :/

Two things :
1. It has a strange feeling when I click on it, it’s never as responsive as a true Aqua toolbar. It’s slow.
2. When I installed ML prior to its release, my toolbar was in English during the first 3 days, and without any update, it went in French.

The language has clearly been pushed through a web update. Basically, the App Store is a stripped down version of Safari with a Favorites bar, that can install apps.

The toolbar is not a web page, but it does pull web data for the button labels. The iOS App Store does the same thing. They do it so they don't have to push a new version of OS X or iOS every time they want to add a new country to the store.

Just installed 10.8.1 Mountain Lion beta released today. So far the battery live on my Macbook Air seems to have improved.

Safari itself is "Aqua". So is the App Store.
