Is today appstore lockdown day?

I've forgotten the exact day...I could be confusing the date with No-More-Openfeint day.

So...any answer?

There is no more Openfeint since 14 December
And the App Store Connect Shutdown is December 21-28. So you have a few more days to buy some games

Wait, we can't buy any games/apps/music/movies after the lockdown?? I thought it was just for developers submitting.

Yea I thought that as well. Devlopers can't do price changes on those days or update.

You can make purchases during the lockdown, iirc. I wish the lockdown was today, I'm purchasing and dowloading somethin fierce.

Lock it down before I spend all my money!

Edit: saw that it was already mentioned that the store is open to customers. Apple, close down the moneymaker for a week? HA!

Devlopers can't do price changes, can't add games, or updates. Apple robots/employees take a week or two off
