Pi Store aims to help young people make a little pocket money

Raspberry Pi launches own app store

Raspberry Pi has launched its own app store where users of the credit-card sized computer can buy applications, games and tools.

The ‘Pi Store’ currently has 23 free titles, ranging from utilities like LibreOffice and Asterisk to classic games like Freeciv and OpenTTD.

Running as an X application under Raspbian, the Pi Store allows users to upload their own content for moderation as well as just downloading titles.

“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,” reads the Raspberry Pi blog.

There is currently one commercial post on the store – Storm in a Teacup from Cobra Mobile.
