For our readers in Europe who purchase apps from the iTunes App Store, here’s something that you might want to take note of. Recent reports have revealed that Apple has recently begun to send out emails to iOS developers, informing them that there will be a change to the way that taxes are handled in the European iTunes App Store.
Instead of applying the same VAT rate across the European iTunes App Store, Apple will instead take into account the charges based on the country that you are from. What this means is that in some cases, you could actually see your app prices go up. However in other instances, your apps could actually end up being cheaper.

Any photographer or art lover worth their salt probably knows about 500px. For those unfamiliar, 500px is a community where photographers upload photos that they have taken to be shared amongst each other. Unlike other photo sharing websites, 500px in general seems to have pretty decent quality photos so perhaps they might be worth checking out if you haven’t already.
That being said if you have the 500px app on your smartphone, you might be pleased to learn that the developers have recently issued a rather major update to it.
