While we still don’t know the actual date, the Mac App Store opening is getting closer. Developers recently received a message from Apple indicating as much. According to the email:
The Mac App Store will be open soon, providing customers around the world a new way to explore and purchase apps made just for Mac. Ensure your app is ready when we open the Mac App Store — submit it for review today.
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.Announced by Apple one month ago, the Mac App Store will bring app downloading to Mac OS X. Similar to the existing App Store for iOS, the Mac version is expected to open sometime in the next 60 days. If I would guess, the store will probably debut in late January. Unless Apple wants to give us an early Christmas present.
