Apple Begins Accepting Mac App Store Admissions

| News

Mac App StoreApple began accepting admissions to the Mac App Store Wednesday evening. The company sent out an e-mail to registered Mac developers notifying them that the submission process was now open.

“The Mac App Store will be opening soon,” the company said in its e-mail, which was forwarded to The Mac Observer. “You can get ready by submitting your Mac apps for review now. Log in to the Mac Dev Center for details on setting up an iTunes Connect account, creating Apple-issued Mac Distribution Certificates, and preparing your apps for the review process.”

Apple announced the Mac App Store during a “Back to the Mac” media event in October. The new virtual store will be modeled after the App Store for iPhone and iPad apps that has had such great success in iTunes.

Apple also has an App Store Resource page set up for developers of both iOS apps and Mac software.

It’s interesting if Apple prohibit private API. If it do this it risks to leave behind a lot of popular programs for Mac OS. And many users also are interested in compensations: if it’s getting will become easier or no.

It?s interesting if Apple prohibit private API

That’s a known fact at this stage: Apple want the store to have a reputation for easy-to-use, risk-free apps. Apps that bend/push the guidelines will have a hard time getting in.

I’m not sure I understand your second thought; apps will be way easier to find, purchase and install, this of course will be a big ‘incentive’ to users, if that’s what you mean by ‘compensation’.

“Apple Begins Accepting Mac App Store Admissions”

Shouldn’t that be “Apple Begins Accepting Mac App Store SUBMISSIONS”? The developers SUBmit, Apple ADmits. Even the button below this box says, “Submit,” not “Admit.”
