Transition to the Mac App Store
We are right there on the Mac App Store! Woohoo!
What’s even more is that we just announced something very cool in celebration of the launch of the Mac App Store. We call it the “Pixelmator Transition to the Mac App Store”.
The transition basically means that if you buy Pixelmator on the Mac App Store now for only $29, you will get the totally awesome Pixelmator 2.0 for free once it is out on the Mac App Store later this year.
Yup, that’s true, and yup, it is totally worth it.
I told you many times that we believe that the Mac App Store is a future of software distribution and sales, that it is going to be an absolute hit and, of course, that we are very excited to be a part of it.
And, since there are so many benefits for everyone, we are fully committed to supporting the Mac App Store. We plan to completely move Pixelmator sales and distribution to the Mac App Store as soon as possible.
Therefore, now is the perfect time for you to click this button:
P.S. Even if you decide not to move to the Mac App Store, we will continue to provide you with free Pixelmator 1.X updates until version 2.0, just as promised.
P.P.S. Oh, and to be sure everything is clear – there is no way of transitioning Mac apps to the Mac App Store for free as of yet. If there was such a way, we would have definitely give it for free to our registered customers. That’s why we are reducing price and giving Pixelmator 2.0 for free once it is out.
P.P.P.S. Look at the bottom of the “Panic on the Mac App Store” article about the update policy. Everyone has that issue: http://www.panic.com/blog/2011/01/panic-on-the-mac-app-store/
