    When developers state in their app description, "For a Limited Time", about how long is that? I know it's going to vary a little bit, but does anyone know what an approx. time usually is? Two weeks, two months? Once I buy an app at a special price, I rarely go back to find out what it jumped to or when it might have occurred.....Thanks in advance!:apple:

    It all depends on the developer. They have full control over their pricing. You should email them and ask. :)

    They're good until the developer decides to raise the price back to normal. This is like asking "how long is a piece of string?"

    When I set a limited time price I usually keep it a week; It depends if the application is new or not.

    For example my last app Italian Video Recipes has now a limited time price sale because it's new and I probably will keep it until a few reviews appear on iTunes.
    When I do that on older apps I usually keep it a week.
    Sometimes I also make a "one day free" but it's very rare.

    Thanks for the replies everyone - I figured as much, but wanted to get more developer/user input - much appreciated! I did ask a developer about it and instead of getting an answer back, I found it on the itunes app game page when the price will be going back up!! It was...refreshing! :)
