I downloading the new Super Mario Run when I notice that Apple just switched its pricing to the local currency of the country/region selected on your Apple ID. The local currency scheme will for both paid apps and in-app purchases in the App store.
Apple first announced the change pricing strategy to its developers earlier this month and aside from the paid apps and in-app purchases, Apple also said that developers will now be paid in the respective local currency for sales in those markets which introduces some price variation from the exchange rates at any particular time.
The new currency scheme will take effect in eight countries; Egypt (Egyptian Pound), Kazakhstan (Kazakhstani Tenge), Malaysia (Malaysian Ringgit), Nigeria (Nigerian Naira), Pakistan (Pakistani Rupee), Philippines (Philippine Peso), Qatar (Qatari Riyal), Tanzania (Tanzanian Shilling) and Vietnam (Vietnamese Dong).
