    We announced a few days ago that Apple had plans on raising App Store prices in the European Union, Canada, and Norway. As of Friday, those prices have taken effect and the minimum price for apps in the U.K., European Union, Norway, and Canada have been raised. The Cupertino-based company had warned developers days ago that the change would happen within 36 hours and that the reason behind the price increase was due to local VAT and foreign exchange rate changes.

    It has been noted that the minimum price for apps in the U.K. is now 0.79, $1.19 for Canada, and 0.99 in the E.U. As for Norway and Russia, minimum prices for apps have not yet been revealed. However, a price increase is definitely to come for the two countries. The only country seeing a price decrease in the App Store is Iceland. What are your thoughts on this matter?

    "the minimum price for apps in the U.K. is now €0.79" - Sorry but the UK doesn't use the Euro symbol, its either GBP 0.79 or 0.79
