Apple's App Store has only been around for a relatively short time, but it's grown phenomenally during the period of time that it has been available. Unfortunately for the company, it may have grown a bit too fast, and as such, Apple seems a bit under prepared. Many developers face long wait times for application approvals, some get their software rejection unfairly, and a vast majority get frustrated when they face long periods of silence whilst their applications are inspected. Whilst the first couple of issues are being worked on, the third has been somewhat addressed today, according to MacRumors, with the introduction of the App Store Resource Center.
An email went out to developers today, stating, "[Apple is] pleased to introduce the App Store Resource Center, a single destination designed to make it easier for you to find details on everything you need to know about distributing your app on the App Store — from how to prepare for app submission to managing your app once it's been posted. Make sure you also check out the News and Announcementssection of the iPhone Dev Center for tips on submitting your apps to the App Store, turnaround time for app review, new program features, and guidance on everything from development and testing to distribution and marketing." This is a great step for beginner developers looking to make their mark on the software world, as now they can further their knowledge on Apple's App Store, and it's handy for those already selling products through the store for obvious reasons.
Most importantly, this improvement shows that the company is listening to the complaints; it's provided a few developers around Twitter with renewed hope for the service, as some have even given up development for it in general due to the issues. If you're a developer, and you haven't already checked out the new site, please head over and have a look, and let us know what you think.
