Apple Asks Developers to Submit OS X Yosemite Apps to Mac App Store

Hours after Apple released a candidate golden master version of OS X Yosemite to developers and members of the public beta, the Cupertino company has begun asking developers to begin submitting their Yosemite apps to the Mac App Store. Additionally, developers can now submit their apps written in Swift to the Mac App Store as well.

Make sure your apps take advantage of all the great new features in OS X Yosemite, which will be available to millions of customers around the world later this fall.

Add powerful new functionality throughout OS X Yosemite with app extensions, explore the innovative new Swift programming language, and take advantage of advances in game technologies, Safari, iCloud, and more. To prepare your apps for the Mac App Store, download and build with the OS X Yosemite GM candidate and Xcode 6.1 GM seed from the Mac Dev Center. With the latest releases, Swift is now final and you can submit your Mac apps written with Swift to the Mac App Store.
The public release of the new OS is expected in late October and will include a redesigned interface and new features like Continuity, iCloud Drive and more.

Thanks Justin!

I submitted my first app ever to the MAS today. Feeling pretty good :D

Surprisingly, it's already in review. Didn't expect it to go to the review stage that quickly!

My Swift app isn't finished yet! More pressure! Must work harder.


You're not living up to the Swift name.

I'll probably jump on the band wagon at 10.10.5

It's been real entertainment to read these forums, seeing the angst and pain everyone suffers going through the .0 to .4 iterations.

I got burned with Leopard (10.5) - I installed it on day-one, and spent 4 hours with Apple Help line trying to salvage my photos from the dead Mac.

With Snow Leopard -- which everyone reveres as rock solid -- they forget that Snow Leopard, for me at least, didn't really get rock solid with Apple Mail until 10.6.6, and attained its legendary status for stability by 10.6.9. I installed SL at 10.6.4 and had some teething problems until it got to 10.6.6

So for Lion I waited it out till 10.7.4 and it was rather trouble free. I watched from the sidelines as people tore their hair out sorting out bugs in the .0 to .3 releases.

For Mountain Lion, same. I jumped in at 10.8.4 when things were fairly good. Right now, ML for me is rock solid.

For Mavericks 10.9, I never installed. Same as ever, there were claims it was stable from Gold Master, but the inevitable bugs in Apple Mail only became widespread when it went public. From reading reports, I'm not convinced Apple Mail in Mavericks 10.9.5 has been totally fixed for Gmail IMAP. Notionally, I would be willing to take a risk with Mavericks if its features were compelling, but there is nothing in Mavericks that attracts me.

I think I'll wait it out till 10.10.5 with Yosemite, and then come onboard. I think Yosemite looks cool.

Even if OSX is free, it costs me to upgrade because I have to pay for the latest update to VMWare Fusion, plus the possibility of having to re-install Windows 7 each time. So unless the OSX new features are really compelling, I tend to stay put for a while.

thats all they said it would do to begin with. not sure why you expected otherwise.


Really? That blows. I could have sworn at WWDC they showed a Dark Mode Safari and Finder.
