ScreenshotThere’s been a lot of speculation about whether the iPhone App Store would open today or tomorrow. Turns out you can see its contents right now. Here’s how. First, use Software Update on your Mac to install the iTunes 7.7 update. Then open up iTunes and search for any app you know about – “OmniFocus” works fine. Click on the application’s icon, and you’ll go to the OmniFocus page. The breadcrumb navigation at the top of the page (Apple > App Store > Productivity > OmniFocus) will let you navigate back up to the main store page, and from there you can explore to your heart’s content.

A quick scan shows a number of apps of potential web worker interest ready to ship: OmniFocus, Things, EverNote,. Funambol, Photobucket, SalesForce Mobile, TypePad, PayPal, and more. Of course, you’ll have to wait for the iPhone 2.0 software update to actually install any of these applications.

  3. Actually, you don’t need to sneak (or update iTunes). It’s there on the front page of the iTunes store now!
