Get Your Geek On: Raspberry Pi App Store Launches Today

Raspberry Pi owners and developers, the Raspberry Pi Foundation just launched a new App Store today for the mini PC. The new App Store runs as an A application under Raspbian and it has been designed to let users download content and upload their own content for “moderation and release.” As of launch, there are about 23 free titles in the store.

Here’s what they had to say about it:

“We’ve been amazed by the variety of software that people have written for, or ported to, the Raspberry Pi. Today, together with our friends at IndieCityand Velocix, we’re launching the Pi Store to make it easier for developers of all ages to share their games, applications, tools and tutorials with the rest of the community. The Pi Store will, we hope, become a one-stop shop for all your Raspberry Pi needs; it’s also an easier way into the Raspberry Pi experience for total beginners, who will find everything they need to get going in one place, for free.”

You can check out the Raspberry Pi Foundation website for more information, or if you’ve heard enough already, visit the new Raspberry Pi App Store to get apps and games.
