With iTunes Connect 3.0, Apple is one step closer to bringing an iOS 7 look to all its appsApple on Thursday unveiled a new revision to its developer-focused iTunes Connect app for iOS, sporting an all-new design and the ability to manage multimedia content in the iTunes Store and iBooks Store alongside apps on the App Store.
According to Apple, the application — which mirrors functionality available in the web-based iTunes Connect portal for developers — has been completely revamped. The update includes a variety of new charts and graphs that provide more glanceable performance information.
In addition to the visual and data-centric overhauls, Apple has also added the ability to manage music, movies, and TV shows that developers sell in the iTunes Store. Users can browse reviews, schedule applications and media for release, and edit metadata like the content's language.
The latest release marks just the ninth time Apple has updated the app since its debut in 2010, and carries with it the most significant changes in nearly two years. iTunes Connect's last update brought only a minor bug fix and support for the then-new iPhone 5.
iTunes Connect version 3.0 is available now as a free, 7.2-megabyte download from the App Store.
