Apple Adds Price Change Scheduling to App Store

iPhone and ipod touch app developers now have more control over the prices the set at Apple’s App Store thanks to the addition of price change scheduling. Apple added the feature to iTunes Connect, so developers can automate single or multiple price changes.

“A great new feature in iTunes Connect now allows you to schedule changes to the price of your app, including In App Purchase items,” Apple said on its Developer Web site. “This feature is designed so you can set a single price change or consecutive price changes all in advance.”

The change should make it easier for developers to manage special discounts and promotional pricing. Developers can manage app price change information via the Pricing tab in the iTunes Connect Edit Application section.
