New iTunes Feature: Scheduled Price Changes

Just saw this new feature that Apple has added to iTunes Connect.

You can schedule price changes in advance now.

That could come in handy.

Also, there is an App Store Review Status on the right hand side of that page.

It shows the percentage of new app submissions and app updates that have been processed within the last 7 days.

Yes I noticed this on Saturday, used it to schedule a day of Free, followed by a week of 50% off then back to original price, it should be really handy. All i've got to do now is leave it and it sorts it's self out!

And the percentage of apps reviewed in 7 days has been there as long as i can remember, which is before November last year, they should put it in iTunes Connect somewhere.

I find the new scheduled price feature more confusing than useful the way it's implemented right now.

They've also eliminated the "primary screenshot" feature. Hint: the last screenshot you add ends up being displayed as your app's first screenshot.

Wow this will be a good tool. One dev put his app free for a day and it stayed like that for 4 days.
