Apple Singapore App Store Now In Singapore Dollars (S$)

· · · Software

Finally! Prices in both the iOS App Store and Mac App Store in Singapore are now displayed in Singapore Dollars (SGD$ or S$) instead of United Stats Dollars (USD$). This means that the price of an app will not fluctuate because of the horrible currency exchange rate between Singapore and United States given by banks.

Last month, when I bought a USD$0.99 app, my credit card bill will reflect SGD$1.30, but now the app just cost SGD$1.28. Apple uses very reasonable exchange rates, according to Google the exchange rate today (13:45 on Friday, 22nd June 2012) is:

1 U.S. dollar = 1.27689948 Singapore dollars
