Are you an iOS app developer? Then its sure that you are in a rush to get your new project into the AppStore for Christmas. Apple has announced that it will shut down for the annual holiday season and that after this Thursday the developers cannot vet in the new iPhone and iPad apps in to the AppStore and it can be done only after the holiday season is over.
Christmas is the greatest day across the world for the app sales and the developers can make huge money on the day. If the developers manage to get their apps through the review process of Apple and then to the AppStore before people at Apple go for a vacation, this would be possible. Every year around the Christmas time, Apple will stop taking in the app submissions and also updating the AppStore. This year Apple has announced the holiday season from Thrusday to another eight days down the calendar.
Apple is unlike Android and the developers of the latter can make their applications available to the world at any time despite of the fact that those apps in the Android Market ought to be approved. Apple requires the iOS developers to get the approval from the company and this makes the deadline of Thursday every crucial for the developers in order to make huge profit on Christmas.
