lion_apps

Lion may not be available just yet, but Lion supported apps are slowly leaking into the Mac App Store. On Monday, Apple e-mailed developers asking them to submit their Lion ready apps as soon as they can. Now Apple has begun approving the Lion compatibility updates, and they’re now appearing in the App Store. There are a number of apps that have been updated for Lion from general bug fixes and compatibility to specific features including full screen, auto-save, versions, and resume support.

Apple got the first Lion update out when the iLife suite was updated earlier in the week. WordCrasher was a Lion ready app that was first spotted by OS X Daily, but there have been quite a few more. There are some big names that have just been updated including OmniOutliner, Things, Byword, Wren, and more. Here’s a list of all the Lion ready updated apps we have found thus far.
