yosemite app store

Late Wednesday evening, Apple began rolling out a refreshed UI design for its Mac App Store in OS X Yosemite. Following up last month’s OS X update, the new Mac App Store look features flatter graphics, thinner font styling, and tons of¬†white space.

As you can see in the screenshot above, Apple has done away with skeumorphic elements like shadows and well-defined tables, in favor of thin gray lines. The new UI feels faster, lighter and more streamlined, and again more in line with OS X Yosemite.

In fact, the new design brings the Mac App Store inline with much¬†of Apple’s software and web offerings. Since unveiling the new design¬†language¬†in iOS 7, Apple has updated most¬†of its website, iOS and Mac apps, and of course the iTunes Store to match.

It appears tonight’s¬†update is rolling out in stages, with some users not seeing the new design, some seeing it off-and-on, and others reporting they see¬†it permanently. If you want to check it out for yourself, simply launch the Mac App Store in OS X Yosemite.
