Raspberry Pi Launches Application Store

The Raspberry Pi Foundation announced the opening of the Pi Store, which features a wide range of free resources – including games – for its users. The “one-stop shop” will feature software as well as tools and tutorials for the computer. This includes a full complement of free information for the totally new Raspberry Pi user. The first tutorial is a series of 17 lessons that teaches novices how to create a Space Invaders-style game. “We hope that the Pi Store will provide young people with a way to share their creations with a wider audience, and maybe to 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,” stated the foundation. The site does offer paid content; however, there is a “tip jar” where even those developers offering free content can be compensated for their work. The low-cost PC was developed by The Raspberry Pi Foundation with the goal of interesting more children worldwide in computer programming by providing them with an affordable PC.
