The dollar soared significantly in the last couple of months and as a result Microsoft will be increasing the pricing of Windows Store apps an in-app purchases to reflect the new currency exchange rate more accurately. The new prices will go into effect starting April 13, 2015.

Neowin writes the new pricing varies from country to country, in some cases prices will be hiked by 20 percent. Developers are encouraged to check the updated pricing in case they want to tweak it manually:.
Countries such as the United Kingdom, Russia, Sweden, Denmark and Romania are among some of the worst affected with the pricing update, as the apps will cost 20 percent more than earlier in these markets.

Although the changes will take place automatically, developers should check out the updated pricing for their operational markets in case they need to rethink the pricing before it rolls out next month.
The pricing of apps in US dollars will remain the same.
