By sheer accident, I discovered the Mac App Store supports searching based on the file format you are looking to work with — Mac OS X will even ask you if you want to search the store for an application capable of reading a file, should it not have one installed already.

Search terms
I’m not quite sure whether or not there are more ways of search the content on the Mac App Store, if there is I will update the following list accordingly – please do comment below if you are aware of more ways to search.

  • extension:argument — searches for any application that is able to read/write files of type specified in the argument (ie. ‘extension:nib’)
