Just weeks ahead of the official release of Apple's next-generation operating system for mobile devices, iOS 4, the App Store is ready to accept iOS 4 apps. To make the process easier, Apple released an App specially designed to help developers track sales and trend data, right from their iPhones.

Apple's iOS 4  incorporates everything from video calling to multitasking, separating Apple's mobile device operating system even further from the competition, and those apps are now being accepted for the App Store.

Developer's are sure to be excited about the many enhancements offered by Apple's iOS 4, including multitasking for background audio apps, VoIP, background and push notifications, task finishing, and fast app switching, iAds--Apple's new advertising platform--the new social gaming network GameCenter, and 1,500 new APIs covering calendar access, in-app SMS, photo library access, video playback and capture, map kit improvements, and a new quick look feature.

Apple has also released a new App  to aid developers in the creation of the next great apps for the iOS 4 platform. According to Apple, the iTunes Connect Mobile App for developers:

"Allows developers to access their sales and trend data from iTunes Connect. You can now view your daily and weekly sales data related to updates, paid and free apps as well as In-App purchases. Whether at the office, at home or on the go, iTunes Connect Mobile keeps you informed about your sales numbers right on your iPhone or iPod touch."

The iTunes Connect Mobile application will work on iPhone OS 3.x (including on the iPad) and is available on iTunes now.
