Apple Approving Mac App Store Apps for OS X Lion

Earlier this week, Apple began inviting developers to submit their OS X Lion apps for inclusion in the Mac App Store, preparing to populate the store with apps capable of taking advantage of some of the new features being deployed in the new operating system.

It's only been a few days, but Apple is already beginning to approve those Lion-capable apps, as noted by OS X Daily in the case of WordCrasher [Mac App Store].

WordCrasher now takes advantage of new OS X Lion features:

- Full-screen. Use the full-screen button or press CONTROL + COMMAND + F to toggle fullscreen mode under OS X Lion.
- Resume. Close WordCrasher at any time and resume your game right where you left it. Restart your Mac, and WordCrasher will resume straight away.

Several other recent app updates have mentioned fixing issues with performance under Lion, but WordCrasher appears to be the first third-party app update to be approved specifically mentioning Lion-only features. Apple has pushed out a number of updates for its own apps this week, including the iLife '11 suite and Aperture, with those updates also quietly adding Lion-only features such as full-screen support.

Yeah almost all of them ... but always the last Friday of the month. Does Apple have the power to call this the last Friday of the month?
