Apple’s new App Store Volume Purchase Program allows US educational institutions to purchase apps for iPad, iPhone, and iPod in volume and distribute those apps to end users of the institution. The App Store Volume Purchase Program will allow qualified US educational institutions to use purchase orders and other payment options and will recognize the tax status of the purchasing institution and bill accordingly. In addition, app developers can choose to offer education pricing for their applications when education institutions purchase in quantities of 20 or more. See http://volume.itunes.apple.com to search for apps and pricing. A sampling of prices for education volume purchasing indicates a typical discount of 50%, including Pages, Keynote, and Numbers for the iPad.
