In just one year, Apple's Mac App Store has logged 100 million apps downloaded. It's a huge number, though it pales in comparison to the 18 billion downloads from the App Store since 2008. But, will it really change the software landscape? Some programs are way too big to download, but the popularity of apps in general has the entire technology industry looking to identify or create the next must have app. Apple obviously leads in that category, especially in the mobile world. For laptops, the Mac Store may or may not morph into the sprawling space that is the App Store because so many people seem to be going mobile for much of their computing needs. As that trend continues, Mac Apps may not be needed as much, but until that day, they will only become more popular.
This list of the 10 best Mac Apps includes a screenshot annotation tool called Skitch, and a cool app that helps you maximize your screen space called Cinch. Also, the list is not in any order so the first app listed isn't necessarily the best one overall. Start the slideshow to see the top ten Mac apps.
