Apple has emerged from a nine-hour global iTunes maintenance period to reveal new pricing for Australian apps, which brings Australian prices in line with those in the US.
Apple users shopping on Australia's iPhone and iPad App Stores are set to feel the benefits of a better exchange rate against the greenback as Apple revises almost all of its local app prices down.
Prices on Apple's own apps like the productivity app Pages, presentation app Keynote and video app iMovie have all been slashed, and even the wildly successful game Angry Birds has seen a drop in price.
"Good work Apple — they've listened to their loyal customers and begun lowering their prices.
"Hats off to the company, and congrats to the customers. Now look forward to their formal response to my issues, which I'm told I can expect next week," Husic wrote on his Facebook page.
According to Apple-centric blog site 9to5Mac, App Store prices have also dropped in the UK.
Apple Australia hasn't yet responded to questions from ZDNet Australia about the possibility of lower prices for other products like laptops, desktops and the iPad.
