Apps on Google Play Store now have Higher Price Limit

App price limits on the Google Play Store have been raised rather quietly by Google, meaning the top price that consumers can pay is now higher. While admittedly this is rather pointless (who pays so much for an app anyway?), we can see this as a good thing for consumers and developers… call us optimistic.

Developers will be able to charge more for apps and get more money, but the highly completive market will means that devs looking to charge multiple hundreds of dollars for an app then they will have to make high quality products. As for the consumer, they will get better quality applications to use. Yes, as we said, optimistic.

The prices have changes across the world and in most cases the ceiling has been doubled, like in the United States where the limit if now $400 instead of $200. In other regions the price has in some cases tripled, such as in Mexico.
