Raspberry Pi Store

The Raspberry Pi Store was launched in 2012 to make it easier for developers to share their applications with the Raspberry Pi community. It also makes the process of finding and downloading applications much easier for beginners.

The Pi Store can be accessed via the web or by using the dedicated Pi app. To access the Pi Store from Raspbian, go to Menu > Internet > Pi Store:

Most of the applications available in the Pi Store are either free or low-priced.


The Pi Store enables you to browse and download content, and even to upload your own application. However, to do all that, you will need to register. Click on the Log In link in the upper right corner and click the Register button:
