Apple Notifies Developers: iPhone App Store To Launch Thursday Morning

Apple finally let developers know when their iPhone apps will be live on the App Store for users to download and use: around 9 am PST Thursday morning. That, at least, is when the embargo lifts and press can start writing about the specific applications. Presumably the App Store will go live, along with iPhone 2.0 software in general, around that time.

We’ve created a directory of some of our favorite apps and will be posting on each of them then. We also have some TechCrunch-related news around an iPhone App as well. It’s not too late to submit your app for inclusion – details for submission are here.

And just as the news dies down on the new apps, get ready for the iPhone 3G, which goes on sale starting Friday morning at 8 am.
