Hi Andrew,

the discussion above is related to iPhone iOS while i've been referring
to the Apple Mac OS X App Store, that can be used to deliver signed and
sandboxed applications on Mac OS X machines.

It's also a "trusted" delivery method, in the sense that as long as you
consider Apple a trusted manufacturer, from technical point of view it's
a secure application delivery and update system.

On Mac OS X 10.8 i am using almost only Mac App store applications and
very few other signed applications.

We should also consider that Windows 8 will follow a similar approach,
so before or later it will be required for Tor to start deliverying
application trough application store on Desktop systems.

We've been considering that for APAF / GlobaLeaks.
