iTunes Connect: New delivery tool for In-App Purchase and Game Center metadata

Wow, I guess it's a big day for Apple developers... A second email was just sent out informing about a new tool. This time it involves InApp purchase and GameCenter management. I obviously haven't tried it yet but it appears to be extremely useful if you find yourself making changes to these sections often. Unfortunately, that's not my case. This is something that was surely requested by the big gaming companies and Apple was nice enough to deliver. I wish they released a tool to manage iTunes Connect pages and localizations. It's a true pain to update metadata and such when you have many languages set up. It would be awesome to have some sort of control panel to easily move around fields. Even a revised webapp would be fine... anything! :) Apple... hello, can you hear me? The full email:
Dear AppGuru, You can now deliver your app's In-App Purchase and Game Center metadata to the App Store using Transporter, Apple's command-line delivery tool. To deliver with Transporter, you must use App Store packages, which are directories that contain your app's In-App Purchase and Game Center metadata and assets. You can also use Transporter to look up your existing app's metadata to retrieve the data in the correct XML format. This can help you to familiarize yourself with the XML format, and make it easier to update your In-App Purchases and Game Center metadata. To learn more about App Store packages, including how to create them, see the App Metadata Specification document available for download from the Manage Your Applications module on iTunes Connect. For additional information on downloading and installing Transporter, see the Transporter User Guide available for download from the Manage Your Applications module on iTunes Connect. Regards, The App Store team
