Apple Now Allows You To Preorder Apps From App Store

You'll now be able to press the pre-order button and you'll then get either the app or the game downloaded to your phone or tablet immediately when it's released. If you change the price of your app during the pre-order period, customers will be charged the price that is lower - the price they accepted for pre-order or the price on the day of release.

Apple has announced the addition of a pre-order feature to the App Store. You'll see the Pre-Orders section if your app has never been published on the App Store.

Notably, the developer can choose to offer both paid and free apps for pre-order.

Texas hires TCU athletic director Chris Del Donte
He was earning roughly $700,000 annually with the Horned Frogs, and now he is expected to earn about $1 million with Texas. The university on Saturday announced the hiring of Chris Del Conte , who had served TCU in the same position since 2009.

Pre-orders will let developers build some hype for their new and upcoming apps, and deploy discount "early bird" pricing for titles. The new feature is now only available for all new, unreleased apps and not for existing apps, which means updates to apps can not be pre-ordered. Apple first allowed its users to be notified about a pre-release app when it announced Super Mario Run in collaboration with Nintendo previous year.

In a carefully orchestrated plan, Apple released its final version of tvOS 11.2 on December 4th, two days before the release of the Prime TV app. However, in-app purchases will not be showcased on App Store product page until the app is released for download. For the paid apps, the charge would be deducted before the downloading starts, and not during the preorder, notes MacRumors. Android users can simply pre-register for an app and be the first ones to try it upon its launch. Granted the nearly limited freedom given to developers, it remains to be seen if there will be some who will find ways to game it.
