∞ Apple begins accepting apps for the Mac App Store

Apple on Wednesday told developers that they could start submitting their applications for inclusion in the Mac App Store.

[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]The Mac App Store resembles the iOS App Store in many ways, and why shouldn’t it? The iOS App Store has started an app revolution in the mobile space and there is no reason to believe that developers won’t benefit greatly from having their Mac apps available in a similar store.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled plans for the Mac App Store during his introduction of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion in late October. While Lion won’t be released until 2011, Jobs said Apple would launch the Mac App Store within 90 days.

There are still a lot of questions, like how Apple will handle larger apps and if companies like Microsoft and Adobe will participate in the store.

Developers interested in submitting their apps can do so by logging into their Macintosh developer account.
