This platform was announced on October 20, 2010, at Apple’s “Back to the Mac” event. It was released on January 6, 2011, as part of the free Mac OS X 10. 6 update for all current Snow Leopard users. After 24 hours of release, Apple announced that there were over one million downloads. On June 4, 2018, Apple announced that a new version of the App Store would be included in macOS Mojave. Like the iOS App Store, the Mac App Store is regulated by Apple. To submit an app for consideration, the developer must be a member of the Apple Developer Program. Apps must be approved by Apple before becoming available on the store. At WWDC 2013, Apple announced that this rule no longer applied, and that so-called “temporary exceptions” may be used when the app has a reason not to be sandboxed.
As with the iOS App Store, Apple rates applications worldwide based on their content, and determines the age group for which each is appropriate. OS will allow blocking of objectionable apps in System Preferences. May contain mild or infrequent occurrences of cartoon, fantasy or realistic violence, and mild or infrequent mature, suggestive, or horror-themed content which may not be suitable for children under the age of 9. May contain frequent or intense cartoon, fantasy or realistic violence, mild or infrequent mature or suggestive themes, mild or infrequent bad language, and simulated gambling which may not be suitable for children under the age of 12. May contain frequent and intense offensive language, excessive cartoon, fantasy, or realistic violence, frequent and intense mature, horror, suggestive themes, sexual content, nudity, alcohol and drugs, or a combination of any of these factors which are unsuitable for persons under 17 years of age. These apps cannot be purchased on the App Store. Since the opening of Mac App Store, Apple Inc. Apple-branded software being sold at Apple Store locations. This has also affected Apple’s prior means of distribution through its own website, with the Downloads gallery being removed in July 2011 and replaced with links to the Mac App Store information page.
The developer contacted Apple on January 31, 2011, and on February 10, 2011, the counterfeit copy of the game was removed from the App Store. A number of news sites have remarked that for all the scrutiny Apple places on apps listed in their store, a counterfeit copy of an existing app should not have made it through the process, and the days it had been since the developer had alerted Apple to the counterfeit software is disconcerting to developers. An update to Mac App Store for OS X Mountain Lion introduced an Easter egg in which, if one downloads an app from Mac App Store and goes to one’s app folder before the app has finished downloading, one will see the app’s timestamp as “January 24, 1984, at 2:00 AM,” the date the original Macintosh went on sale. On November 11, 2015, a number of apps purchased through Mac App Store began to fail at launch. It was discovered the next day by Tapbots developer Paul Haddad that the issue had to do with an expired security certificate. On December 17, 2015, responsibility for overseeing App Store was given to Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. Previously App Store was led by Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services.
