The PPCAppStore is a digital distribution platform, for PowerPC macs, compatible with Tiger, Leopard and SnowLeopard OS.
The store allows users to browse and download essential applications to keep their PowerPC macs alive.
The purpose of the store is to keep a copy of the applications, because lately the platform PowerPC is no longer supported and developers not provide anymore the version for PowerPC.

Here is the beta version of PPCAppStore. I not tested it very much on Leopard. I await your feedback. Contains free software, trial and abandonware, i will not infringe the copyright of any …

  1. Hello,
    I am working on a theme that makes your OS X Tiger Mac look just like the latest OS X, Sierra. Would you mind if I included this really, really cool app in my theme? More people could find out about it and I’d be sure to credit you.

    • Hello! I’m glad you like it, and thanks for the compliment! It would be great to integrate it into your theme. Any advice, suggestions, reporting and welcome! If you know a tiger version for any software that you can find in my appstore, let me know. The store is 99% compatible with Leopard, only a few apps have the version for tiger. The AppStore detects your operating system and download the appropriate version of the app. In leopard will download latest version compatible with leopard, the tiger, the version for tiger. Let me know when you launch your theme! Thanks, see you soon!

      • Thanks, I will be including it in the theme. Release is scheduled for March (there’s still a lot of work to be done), but email me (henryftaylor@icloud.com) and I can get you a beta release if you want. 😉

  2. Another thing, the dropbox version on the Store doesn’t work anymore, it says that I’m using an outdated version. If you could add the latest hacked version that’d be great. 🙂

  3. Just so you know, there’s a freeware utility called AppCleaner that has the same functionality as the commercial App Zapper, and is a universal binary as well.

    I would also include Mpeg Streamclip as a video player, as it’s pretty lightweight and can convert videos to many different formats (even MOVs for OS 9), as long as Perian and Quicktime MPEG2 is installed. Also a universal binary.

    Just a couple of suggestions. Great work, and thanks!

  4. Hello, I found a small problem with your app. I’m trying to download QuickTime 7.7 for Leopard, and the “Download” button downloads a file that is “not recognized” when trying to open. And when I tried the “External” button, it started downloading a version of Dropbox (not even the patched version).

    Great job on the app though, I use it all the time. 🙂

  5. Would you consider making a version of it for 10.2 and 10.3? I happen to have my own repository of software for those releases of OS X, and I’m planning on helping another site specializing in older software.

      • Sorry, my mistake. I sent it to Henry. I wrote:
        Are you still working on it? It is the BESTEST PPC SW resource I found.
        I started with PPC 3 years ago. Problem: not enough SW.
        I managed to find some that is not in your store.
        How can I help?
        I can send links [although some probably lost] or dmg itself.
        Please, continue this work if you are able to.
        At the moment in shit finantial situation so I cannot help you by donation.
        Best regards

      • Thanks for the compliments, comments like this, make me continue to improve the store! Currently I do not have much time to devote to the store but the project has not abandoned !!! In the near relese want to implement the notification in case of a new update … Can you suggest software, photos for buttons, find bugs, hosting for files with direct download links … Thank you for your solidarity!

  6. The Marathon trilogy went open source (http://infinitysource.bungie.org/) in 2011. They’re free to download in their original form (http://trilogyrelease.bungie.org/) or as an open source continuation known as Aleph One (https://alephone.lhowon.org/), the development of which has remained active at least until 2016. Both versions are fully functional on PowerPC, and a significant part of gaming history; Marathon, originally a Mac exclusive, had some modern features to stand out among Doom clones, but most appealing to would-be collectors is the fact that Halo would have been Marathon 4 if Microsoft hadn’t bought Bungie.

    I suggest adding at least the Aleph One trilogy, and removing MacTubes as it no longer functions (http://macapps.sakura.ne.jp/mactubes/index_en.html).
