App Store prices in Mexico, Denmark and Euro countries have today increased

https://www.macrumors.com/2017/04/27...store-pricing/

Sadly for our European (and Mexican) friends, prices for Apps have apparently increased to these new tiers today, with a brand new 0.49 euro tier for the cheaper games.

It seems slightly redundant to ask for your views on this as it's a frankly poor move all round, but it'd still be nice to hear from anyone affected, and what sort of impact this will have on your App Store purchasing patterns.

Solidarity from the UK, as we had to face this earlier this year for our own self-inflicted issues

If this is a reaction to international currencies relative to the US dollar, then does this mean Apple will reduce prices in the same way in the future?!

Just hope Trump won't disappoint.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
