Mac App Store Set to "Open Soon"

It has been a few weeks since we last heard anything about the Mac App Store, but last night Apple emailed developers enrolled in the Mac development program to let them know that the store would be “Coming Soon.”

The email from Apple noted, “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.”

The email went on to tell developers what they needed in order to submit Mac apps, “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.”

When the Mac App Store was first detailed back in October, Steve Jobs said the store would be opened within 90-days. If this email confirms Apple’s plans, then we could see a Mac App Store in December or early January.
