Apple’s newly erected page for the upcoming Mac App Store reveals that users, for the first time, will be able to buy apps from Apple’s suite of iLife and iWork software separately. As you can tell from the screenshot below (if you look extremely closely), Apple is planning on selling standalone apps from iLife, such as iPhoto and GarageBand, for $14.99. Meanwhile, it appears that Apple is planning to sell standalone apps from its iWork suite of software for $19.99 a piece.
Altogether, buying iLife ’11 (iPhoto, iMovie, and GarageBand) costs $49 while iWork (Pages, Keynote, and Numbers) retails for $79. Buying each app individually however would cost users $45 with respect to iLife and $59.97 for iWork. This seems to be a bit of curious pricing and we’ll have to wait and see if Apple adjusts the asking price accordingly.
