App Bundles in iOS 8

September 25, 2014

aticon57 mricon57 With iOS 8, Apple have introduced a new marketing feature on the AppStore called App Bundles. This lets developers bundle and sell their applications together at a discounted rate.

I am not sure how well this will work, but I thought I’d give it a try. I have created a bundle of my two finance apps, Account Tracker and Meter Readings, at a discounted rate of £2.49 (UK) or $3.99 (US), i.e. 70-80% of the combined individual prices.

Note that this is not just for new customers. If you have purchased one of these apps, you can “complete” your bundle by simply paying the difference between the bundle price and the price you paid.

So if you have Account Tracker, get my Meter Readings app at a big discount (or vice versa).

See Accounts + Meters Bundle on iTunes.

    Couple of things:
    1) When I clicked Account Tracker above it took me to Safari which said something like “Server cannot be identified. Cancel, Details, Continue”. I clicked Continue and all was well. I’ve tried again and it doesn’t ask again. This was probably the first time I’ve accessed your site since upgrading to iOS 8.
    2) I also clicked on the bundle link just for interest and it suggested I complete the bundle for £0.69 even though it knew I’d already purchased both apps!

      Hi Roger, sounds like a temporary glitch. I see the “complete the bundle” price too, even though I have purchased both apps. I think this is an Apple bug. I guess if your combined purchase price is less than the bundle price, they assume you are missing something!

    Hiya Graham, having used both Accts & Loans and Meters, both stand out as terrific value for money in their own right and don’t need ‘bundling’!

      Hi Frantz, of course that is true! I just thought I’d try it out to see how well it works. 🙂
