FROM THE EDITORS
Welcome to the Mac App Store
Introducing Catalina, Sidecar and much more.
The Mac App Store is the best place for apps. Whether you’re an expert photographer or a first-time coder, a productivity pro or a longtime musician, you’ll find the most innovative apps and games from around the world, curated by our editorial team.
In macOS Catalina, you get even more. Love games? Apple Arcade gives you access to groundbreaking new games with one subscription. And Catalyst makes it easy for developers to adapt your favourite iPad apps for the Mac.
Voice Control lets you use your voice to tackle nearly any task on your Mac; developers can use this feature to make their apps more accessible than ever. If you’re a frequent multitasker, use Catalina’s new Sidecar feature to turn your iPad into an additional screen for your Mac.
It all starts with the Discover tab, where each week you’ll find in-depth stories about the best and most essential Mac apps, written by our global team of writers and editors. With Top Charts, you can always check out what’s popular. And videos show you what an app is capable of before you download it.
Here are a few of our favourite Mac apps to get you started:
