This is a big day for iTunes users that don’t happen to live in the United States.
According to a report by 9 to 5 Mac, Apple has just alerted developers to the fact that App Store promo codes are no limited to iTunes users in the United States. Here’s what Apple had to say:
Your promo code distribution is no longer limited to U.S. customers. Promo codes in iTunes Connect can now be redeemed by all App Store customers worldwide. Your Team Agent can request 50 codes per version of your app in iTunes Connect and your customers can redeem these codes in any App Store. To learn more about requesting promo codes in iTunes Connect, see the iTunes Connect Developer Guide.
This is, of course, pretty big for developers and for the people who review their applications that don’t live in the United States. In fact, we have a few of them here on the team that just let out some shouts of approval.
Good going, Apple.
Took you long enough.
