Apple raises the minimum price for an app in Europe from €0.79 to €0.89, adds new currencies
posted by Ray S. / Oct 26, 2012, 7:20 AM
It's not clear yet if the updated pricing structure is present in all countries in the EU, but the €0.89 price has already been spotted in Italy, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, France, Belgium, Slovenia and some others. The sources suggest that this price increase has been done due to higher local taxes in many countries.
In addition, Apple has also introduced some new currencies to the App Store. Users from Russia, Turkey, India, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Israel, UAE and South Africa will now be able to purchase app in their own currencies.

After living in Germany for almost 30yrs now, i can tell you Nathan, Apple has been taken advantage of these Europeans ever since they existed. For example, if an iMac cost $1499.00 in the USA, it cost 1499.00euros here. Even when 1 euro is worth $1.30, stupid ass Europeans. Typing this from a $1499.00 iMac that costed me $1948.70 on the German market. Ok call me iStupid too... :/

"constantly changing economic climate" ... So, I have to believe that us Europeans are doing better than the might USSA, I mean, them f×××ers say we can easily spend ~$1.15 on apps that cost just one buck on the other side of the pond. That's good to know, paying the bills and all for a living, I sure as hell would've thought the situation's just getting worse.

I move from symbian bought about 2 paid apps to iOS bought less than 20 apps to android bought more than 30 apps. I will stay with Android. Feel like coming home. One thing I learned in life is don't use good money to chase after bad money. One day I might leave android but right now that where I feel at home.
