The Raspberry Pi Foundation, the people behind the $35 Raspberry Pi have launched an "App Store" aimed at making it easier for developers of all ages to share their games, applications, tools and tutorials with other Raspberry Pi users.




The "App Store" went live earlier this morning, 6 months after being announced by Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton back in July. The foundation is hoping that the new App Store will become a onestop shop for all your Raspberry Pi development, productivity and entertainment needs.


On the Raspberry Pi blog the foundation writes: "We hope that the Pi Store will provide young people with a way to share their creations with a wider audience, and maybe to a make a little pocket money along the way; as well as offering commercial developers an easy way to get their software seen by the Raspberry Pi community,"


The Foundation has partnered with IndieCity and Velocix to build the Pi Store. The Store offers a mix of free downloads and paid content. There's also a tip-jar system to enable free apps to make a little money after the fact if people like what they see.
