Changing the price of an app on the App Store is pretty straight forward. You go to the Pricing tab of your app in iTunes Connect and then edit it with the Tier you want. You must remember to set a starting date and an ending date. (Use Now to set the price change right away, and use None on the ending date if you want to keep that price indefinitely.)
If you have in-app purchases for a particular app, and you want to change the pricing for them, you must then go to the In-app purchase tab in iTunes Connect then click on the in-app purchase you want to edit. On the popup screen you will see the current setting for that in-app purchase but you have to click on the edit button to change any data including the price. Then you can choose the new pricing exactly as you do with the app pricing, setting a new tier, starting date and ending date.
Pretty easy, eh? It took me five minutes to change all the in-app purchase prices on my 60 Top Hat Piano Grooves Vol. 1 app which is now ON SALE for $3.99 (was $4.99) and every single module is now $0.99 (were $1.99) except for the rock & pop grooves since there’s quite a few more of those.
Now you can buy 60 lessons with video tutorial & demo, compete piano score, metronome included in the score to practice all for only $3.99,
less than 7 cents $0.07 a lesson, how ridiculous (“amazing”.- I meant) is that!
After 12 days waiting for review, 60 Top Hat Piano Grooves Free version 1.2 is now ready for sale.
The user has now the option of purchasing a preferred groove module. For example: If you’d like to access all the Rock & Pop grooves only, you may do so by purchasing only that module.
I think this will be a nice feature on the free version since the user already has access to two grooves for every single style. They can try them and choose the style they want to work with first and then when they are ready they can download the next module.
Apple does send you a nice email with all the details:

Today we submitted the new version of 60 Top Hat Piano Grooves Free.
I added 4 modules that are available as in-app purchases,using the method I described on my previous post In App Purchase
60 Top Hat Piano Grooves is a great piano app for piano students and players who want to improve their comping technique in many different styles.
We will see how long it takes…
I just finished submitting a new app to the App Store:
Mario Cerra is an unbelievable jazz saxophone player ( I met Mario a few years back when we were studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston) and I asked him to share 20 of his tricks and concepts when improvising at the saxophone, with the hope of creating a great Mobile app with video tutorials, demos, scores and backing tracks for practicing.
I should add, I’ve just finished my piano app a couple of weeks ago, and is already available on the App Store, got a few nice reviews and we are waiting to see how it does on the App Store.
We’ll see what happens with mDecks Music
