Will Apple sell iLife 11 Apps Individually?

Published Friday, October 22, 2010 1:19 PM

During the "Back to the Mac" news event Apple talked about the new Mac App Store, where people can go to discover new applications and benefit from one click downloading and installation of applications. The Mac App Store also gives you the ability to find and install updates for your applications automatically.

An interesting image was shown in the demo of the new App Store, which featured the new iLife 11 applications available for $15 each. Apple has never sold the iLife application individual before, and has not confirmed they are going to sell them individually. If the demo was a foreshadowing of what is to come it could be very exciting.

The iLife suite usually sells for $49, but many people might want just one or two of the applications and have no need for the others. This would allow users to just download and install the application they want and save some money. iLife comes with iPhoto, iMovie, GarageBand, iWeb, and iDVD, so purchasing them separately would of course cost more. I feel that many people would benefit from the sale of them individually.
