It's had a camera mod for a while now, but the Raspberry Pi — the tiny Linux-based PC made for enthusiasts and mad modders — now has an app store.

You can find it via the web or through an app for Raspian, the free Debian-based OS built for the Raspberry Pi.

It's slim-pickings at the moment — just 25 apps in total — but we were impressed to see Despotify, a Spotify app, tucked in there.
