Apple have just changed the Mac App Store acceptance rules. Any applications need to support a new Sandboxing feature that requires special intervention (if you do not used the latest Xcode). Fortunately GameMaker for Mac apps DO support it J
Making life easier and to be able to get your GameMaker work onto the App store is the App Composer 1.3! App Composer is a little tool that lets you package Mac Applications for the App Store with little hassle. This features Sandboxing, improved signing that targets GameMaker for Mac (signs the yoyosound and SDL frameworks) and other extras. Grab this for free here - http://www.vetragames.com/software/
