Price confusion in the German iOS App Store




Price confusion in the German iOS App Store

8 months ago were in Germany price levels for apps in the Apple AppStore adjusted . The best free apps since then no longer 79 cents, but 89 cents. The initial gripes has settled quickly, even if the price increases in more expensive apps were already considerable. If you look today in the AppStore notice that there are new prices again.

The confusion is great, there is something official to not. What is certain is that there is now also apps for 99 cents in addition to the apps for 89 cents. In the top charts which is very nice to see. Here Bridgy Jones are available for 99 cents and the Red Cross First Aid App for 89 cents after the other. Cling Thing, also from publisher Chillingo, is also priced at 99 cents.

Other differences are aware, has not been noticed especially in the higher tiers. What have you discovered? It is of course possible that now 99 cents from 89 cents. Certainly still to get over, though a bit steep, since the last increase is not even that long ago. According to a developer, there are no new price levels. So you can probably already set on it that there will be a general adaptation.

Moritz has enlightened us while researching something, but he can not say whether these alternate tiers are new also. There are probably two different price lists that are available in the developer section of Apple when it creates an app. Known as the animal Alternate list price list shows prices starting at 99 cents and then increasing in steps of 1 euro. Accordingly, the new prices 0.99, 1.99, 2.99 euros, and so on would be.


Does it bother you to again might have to pay more for apps or rather let you see it?
