IM+ : author lies, or price mistaken?
I'm sorry M. SHAPE, you have the best product here, but I call this being on the edge of stealing.
 there already is a new buyer's comment in App world complaining about this (and he visibly paid the upper price)
I just emailed SHAPE about it -after all maybe there is a failure somewhere...

It's not the developer's fault. Price differences of apps for which the price has changed shortly before are not uncommon. The problem is that the shown price and the checkout price are not perfectly in sync. The AppWorld service provider, Digital River, is to blame. Typically it takes a few hours. In some cases way longer.

For example, I bought a very useful app when it came out for 4.49€. The app description stated it's an introductory sale and the regular price would be $19.99. After the sale, it directly got into another sale (holiday or something), then another one and so on. Though the sale prices varied a bit, I've never seen it priced the claimed regular price. That advertisement practice is forbidden in Germany (Mondpreiswerbung), yet no competitor seems interested in stopping it or - most likely - knows or cares about it.

At this hour, one day at least after the price change on App world, Digital River is still not updated.
That's certainly caused by the RIM salesperson reciting the new pricelist too slowly on their vocal phoneline, isn't it?
I don't know if there have been new victims; at least, they didn't post new comments on the app world, or they are deleted.
 indeed: they have been deleted!
The one I saw yesterday that explained having been charged twice the announced price, has disappeared.
I know devs have a right to ask removal of outraging comments : I didn't expect SHAPE would react this way to my email describing the issue...

There might be problem with the price change process in general atm. It'd be nice to see some official words by R.I.M. or Digital River.
I'm waiting for the advertised price of Eufloria HD being reflected by the actual checkout price for about 4 days now. This was posted on the developer's blog about the issue:

Is there someone here having bought it? What exactly was added in the last update?
Same for our new friend Rebecca
