Apple late yesterday rolled out its overhauled iTunes Connect web portal with a new visual design and improved features to help developers manage the sales and marketing of their apps, books and other media. Apple first introduced the new iTunes Connect at WWDC 2014 and is rolling out the interface ahead of the expected fall launch of iOS 8.

The web-based tool has an iOS 7-inspired flat design that is similar to iCloud.com and brings the site in line with the iTunes Connect iOS app [Direct Link], which was updated earlier this year.

Besides visual changes, the latest version of the web portal also includes an improved My Apps management section and a "Resources and Help" tab for troubleshooting media distribution and payment issues. The "Users and Roles" section also was updated to make it easier to manage both iTunes Connect and Sandbox users. Developers and other media producers can check out the changes at the iTunes Connect website.

These icons look nice. Much better tha some of the iOS7 icons. I hope this means Apple will be heading in this design direction.

I'm unimpressed so far. The in-app purchase section (what I was most looking forward to seeing updated) is the exact same as it was before (i.e., sucky), and I've been logged out multiple times, which was a frequent problem in the previous version.

Maybe they haven't rolled out updates for every section, or maybe it's overloaded with users checking out the new look. Regardless, I'm a little bummed.

Gosh you're right.... the IAP section hasn't changed a bit.

At least it's more reassuring than I thought - I thought they revamped it with a new design, but with the same forms. Now that they haven't, they have yet to revamp it. We can only hope this really goes from scratch.

The sad part with IAP is that you have to put in the information of what can only be a final app, while it's still very much under construction. Then you have to change it afterwards.

If you can see your IAP's you are doing better than I am.
I've had an open case for over a week now to resolve my IAP screen being totally broken.
Had hoped that the new UI would fix my issue but it looks like it's nothing but a top level re-skin.

There's a lot still missing, and a lot of older cruftier items still in there. One thing I'm not seeing yet is the new Analytics announced at WWDC, I guess they are waiting for iOS 8 to roll it out (I'm not sure, but I think only iOS 8+ apps can utilize it).
