View Current App Store Price for Already Installed Apps

This tip comes from Mark Greentree of Everyday Mac Support and Not Another Mac Podcast.

If you purchase an app from the iTunes App Store for iOS or from the Mac App Store for your Mac, you are no longer able to view the current price of the app in the app store once you have installed it. Instead, you’ll see an indicator where the price normally is displayed that you already have the app installed.

Normally this isn’t a problem, but if for some reason you ever do want to see what the current price of an installed app is, here’s one way to do so on your computer.

First, go to the app in iTunes on your computer, right-click on the app name, and select “copy link”.

Now open your web browser and paste the link you just copied into the URL field at the top of the browser window, and hit return.

You’ll now be taken to a web page description of the app that looks very much like the app description in iTunes. On this page will be the price of the app, displayed in the usual location underneath the picture of the app’s icon. In this case, you can see that PasteBot from TapBots for iOS is a $3.99 app.

If you enjoy this tip, please listen to the Pocket Sized Podcast for more great information about iOS, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV on a weekly basis.
