Legal This make me a sad little facepalming unicorn. Apple has just slapped the open source home server project Amahi with a cease and desist letter about the project's use of the term 'app store' - stop using the term, or face Cupertino's army of lawyers. Note: Please help me find out what 'Mac App' is, a supposed Apple product from 1985 - the first citation of the term 'app' in the Oxford English Dictionary. Another note: Okay I should've guessed that publications from that time could still correct company's horrid camel case spelling without unleashing the wrath of fanboys - it's MacApp, not Mac App. Gra├žias, guys!

Seems to be an application development framework

This article examines one specific application framework for the Macintosh, MacApp--The Expandable Macintosh Application from Apple. The average end user does not generally use or even know about application frameworks. They are tools for developers who design the software for end users. In theory, and application framework can be developed for any personal computer. However, they are especially useful on those with a well-defined user-interface specification.
