    As developers have submitted increasing numbers of iPhone and iPod touch applications for inclusion in the App Store, Apple today announced that it has rolled out a new search functionality in its iTunes Connect interface to allow developers to more easily locate their applications.
    Apple also notes that developers can preview their applications within iTunes Connect and view crash reports associated with their applications.

    The enhancements to iTunes Connect come just as Apple prepares to take the service offline over the holidays. iTunes Connect is scheduled to be unavailable from December 23rd through 28th.

    Not new. It's been this way for nearly a month now.

    Some features of it are new including, I believe, the "last 10 modified apps" list.

    So devs will be unable to modify anything about their app, such as price, while the service is down? I hope they set their Christmas markdowns early. I've got some fat iTunes cards rolling my way in a few days, a laundry list of apps, a 32 gb 3GS with room to spare, but unfortunately, I've run out of home screens! We need a grid of screens with Spaces Apple!! I'm app
    crazy!

    Is this designed primarily for app developers that have over 10 apps? Seems to help big companies and spammy app developers the most. It would be excellent to see more tools for smaller developers, or some way to formally submit an app to be considered as special, or as a staff pick, since that's the way to really get exposure...

    It's been here for about a month - this is yesterday's news!

    I hate the new interface - the icons don't render properly (i.e. half square, half rounded corners, part, pre-rendered with gloss) and it only displays a handful of apps to begin with - it's more difficult to get to the application you want.

    And then there's the reporting. Why the heck can't we have live reporting? And perhaps a few graphs or two - it means I can't make sense of my sales until I go home to my Mac and fire up AppViz.

    No, I've had that for the same period of time too.
