Apple has this crazy thing going on with customers. They make it crazy silly easy to buy stuff we like, and we spend money on Apple’s stores to buy stuff we like. I’m on the Mac App Store right now looking for an app that will prevent the Mac App Store from launching more than once a week.
Seek And Ye Shall Buy
I’m not sure why Apple has a standalone app for the Mac App Store. If iPhone and iPad and Mac apps were all available from the same location, maybe I wouldn’t buy as much. Maybe I would buy more.
Today I was digging round in MAS for food. How? I entered food in the search box. Uh oh. My bad. Up popped 40 Mac apps I needed to look at. Actually, that’s not true. I already purchased six of the 40, so there were only three dozen left to check out.
Between games and calorie counters, I found a few gems. The Stand O’Food game is wonderful fun. And free. The premium version has more levels and features.
The objective is to run your own fast food restaurant. Emphasis on fast food. All the unhealthy foods are there. Burgers, pie, french fries, ice cream, soda, lasagna.
If you’re good, you grow the business through 75 different levels, five settings, and 12 bonus levels. You serve your fast food in 25 different restaurants. You’ll have to master 90 recipes and 18 different special sauces to get through different levels.
It’s just plain fun, and reminds me of the I Love Lucy episode where Lucy tries her hand at wrapping chocolate on a candy assembly line.
