Apple Configurator + VPP + Apps that Go Free For A Day
I spoke with Apple today regarding how apps that have a temporary price reduction of free affects Apple Configurator. Here was the response I got:
Apple Configurator checks to see if the app is free at the moment you import the app into Apple Configurator. If a free app is imported and Apple Configurator finds that it is no longer free, you will be required to import VPP app codes for it. If the app is still free as you import it then it stays free forever on that particular computer. Each computer does this check independently.
