    I received an email from the Appshopper website this morning at 09:30am local U.K. time that an app I was interested in buying (Jump Desktop) had dropped in price. I went to purchase it this evening when I got home from work at 8:13pm and it had already gone back up in price. What’s up with that? What time zone does the App Store work on when a price drop and increase can happen in less then 24 hours? I would have thought price changes occur at midnight.

    App developers can change prices at any time, they can take an hour or so to update on the App Store, but to my knowledge there is no set time that prices change unless the developer has scheduled it to change. I have on occasion made apps free for only a few hours.
