Raspberry Pi launches its app store

Raspberry Pi launches its app store

Undoubtedly one of the most exciting projects that 2012 has been born into the world of technology has been the Raspberry Pi , the tiny computer that seeks to bring the interest on IT development to all parts of the world, from schools poorest to any research center at a cost of only about 25 euros to change. Today, the Raspberry Foundation has launched its own app store, led to this wonderful device.

We must remember that the Raspberry Pi has an ARM11 processor at 700 MHz only accompanied by 256 MB of RAM, features that have been sufficient to run perfectly with the Debian distribution of Linux, or some other distros designed for this minimum computer , including a free version of ChromeOS .

But needed a place, a platform to compile all the software designed to Pi, and that’s how was born the Pi Store , which so far has 25 applications, with only one payment and another 24 free. Only the game called “Storm in a Teacup” is priced at just over $ 3.

According to the statement of the foundation in charge of Raspberry Pi, Pi Store is very friendly with developers, as virtually anyone can upload their applications or products, and these are free and will have ways to generate profits, thanks to have some options as a donation system so that if the user really like the software in question, can thank the developer donating the sum of money to consider.

Install this application store Raspberry Pi is extremely easy and fast. For this we have two options, first download it from the official website of the foundation , or in the case of users Raspbian (Pi Debian version), only need to type the following command in console:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install pistore

It was a fantastic idea to offer an application platform designed for this small computer that is causing a sensation in the world, and promises to expand into ever more territory and encourage youth and adults to get involved in the world of computing and its limitless possibilities .
