TechCrunch reports, and I can confirm, that the App Store is live
. It’s not linked from the store navigation, but if you install iTunes 7.7, you can click through to the list of iPhone apps
. The categories are pretty unsurprising: Business, Education, Entertainment, Finance, Games, Healthcare & Fitness, Lifestyle, Music, Navigation, News, Photography, Productivity, Reference, Social Networking, Sports, Travel, Utilities, Weather. And a few interesting finds, including a Bloomberg app
, a location-aware Bank of America app
, SalesForce Mobile
, Oracle Business Indicators
, the AP’s news app
(with no mention of being able to send photos back to the AP; whassup?), NetNewsWire
, MooCow’s Band
, and about 175 games.
Including Jared. (Happy dance.)
Update: According to TechCrunch and CNET, you can download the firmware now, though it’s a direct download rather than through Software Update. Alas, my iPhone is synced through my Mac, which is at home, so I’ll have to wait before I can try it out.
