Right on the heels of pushing out the presumably final gold master of OS X Mountain Lion prior to its release this month, Apple has begun notifying Mac developers that it's time to start submitting apps ready for the next big cat.
Although we still don't have a firm release date, Apple appears on schedule to release OS X Mountain Lion later this month. On Monday, the company pushed out a final gold master build to Mac developers, and now comes word that the Mac App Store is accepting submissions for apps created for the latest operating system.
"Make sure your apps take advantage of the great new features in OS X Mountain Lion when the world’s most advanced operating system ships to millions of customers worldwide," an email to Mac developers reads. "Download OS X Mountain Lion GM seed and Xcode 4.4 GM seed, now available on the Mac Dev Center. Build your apps with these latest seeds, then test and submit for review.
"You can also submit iOS apps that take advantage of the new cross-platform Game Center Groups, so they’ll be available when OS X Mountain Lion ships," the email concludes.
What Apple has managed to do with OS X Mountain Lion is quite impressive. After all, six months ago Mac users and developers were given a first look at the software and now, apps built for it are already heading to the Mac App Store.
Speaking of which, OS X Mountain Lion itself will be available for only $19.99 from the same place when it becomes available later this month.
