Apple adds developer enhancements to the Mac App Store — 2022

One of the novelties that brought macOS Mojave After its presentation at WWDC 2018 in June and its subsequent launch in September, it is the Mac App Store revamp.

Changes to the Mac App Store continue to this day. The latest to be added to the platform is the possibility that developers know data about their applications such as the number of downloads.

New features for developers in the Mac App Store

Apple communicated today through its developer portal a new app analytics functionality from the Mac App Store on App Store Connect for developers. This was the company note:



App data from the new Mac App Store in macOS Mojave is now available in App Store Connect. Now you can find out how many times your app was viewed in the Mac App Store, how many times your product page was viewed, and how many new customers downloaded your app. You can also view sales numbers for in-app purchases as well as paying users and more.

In this way the Mac application store follows the path of its counterpart on iOS and it is that the App Store of the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has since last year features similar to those that will now integrate the Mac App Store.

With news like these, Apple tries to add value to your app store on Mac and try to encourage not only downloads in it but also that the developers themselves want to publish them. It is notorious as downloads of third-party applications and services are increasing more and more via the internet because many developers do not update their apps in the Mac App Store or have decided to withdraw them directly.

In our opinion, these measures by Apple with its Mac App Store seem good. At the end of the day, what both developers and the company itself want is provide a good user experience . The security it is also important and when downloading applications from the internet Apple warns about it when trying to open it. For their part, the apps in the official application store go through security filters, so any measure that favors the arrival of new applications in the store will always be positive.
