Jonny Evans of 9 to 5 Mac reports that Apple will be shutting down iTunes Connect for Christmas. iTunes Connect is Apple’s developer portal for those who make apps available through the App Store.
From Apple’s “weekend note”:
iTunes Connect, the tool you use to manage your applications and access your reports, will be unavailable from December 23 through December 28, 2009.
Not only does this mean that developers won’t be able to check purchase and download statistics for their applications during those five days, it also means that developers won’t be able to lower the price of their application for Christmas day sales.
