According to thedaily.com, Nintendo is planning to have an app store for the Wii U that will have software beyond the normal offerings of what is currently available on the Wii and the 3DS.
The digital store on the 3DS does currently offer a few things outside of games like Mario themed calculators, and alarm clocks, but apparently the Wii U will offer far more. It makes sense that Nintendo would be interested in expanding the software of the Wii U consider its controller has more capabilities beyond that of just gaming.
