OS X Lion ready applications begin appearing on the Mac App Store

WordCrasher on the Mac App Store

Ahead of Mac OS X’s Lion’s official launch, Apple has begun approving apps that take advantage of the next-generation operating system into their Mac App Store. The move, first noted by OS X Daily, comes just days after Apple opened the door to developers to submit their Lion apps for inclusion on the App Store. Apple, of course, recommends that these apps are first tested against the Golden Master version of the operating system. In WordCrasher’s case, the app takes advantage of Lion’s full screen apps feature and resume.
