Many readers are noticing today that new pricing tiers are showing up on some international App Stores. Most notably, people are discussing a new .99 euro price for European countries. It seems that Apple has created these new tiers (and it is unclear when these actually became available) to better align with the pricing in the United States.
Up to now, all international prices have just been a rough conversion of the US prices. These “alternate tiers” now track in .99 increments in the country’s native currency.
