    I am a Canadian living in South Korea and I would like to buy Garageband for my Ipad 2. However, I can only purchase apps from the Korean App store. I can download from the American app store, but only free apps because I do not have an American Credit Card or Canadian card anymore.

    Is it possible to change the language in Garageband. I haven't downloaded it yet, but I've see a few videos online and the ones from Korea had Garageband in Korean. So again is there away way to change the language if the app I download is not in English?

    Thanks

    Rich

    If you have a friend in Canada ask them to buy an iTunes card and email you the number. You don't need a credit card to use the app store.

    Thanks but it would be kind of difficult to do this every time I want to buy an English APP

    But thanks for the idea

    Not really, just buy $100 worth. They even go on sale every now and then.

    If I buy an App store card can I use it on the American or Canadian App store without a creditcard registered to my account? My current American account only allows me to download free apps.

    You don't need a CC for an iTunes account. Just a mailing address in the country where the iTunes card is valid.

    I cringe to say this and waste your money for you...but, as long as the app page in your local store shows support for multiple languages, you should be able to change your iPad to that language and the app will change.

    I've done this several times from the French store with no issues. And just changed my iPhone to one of the Asian languages and GarageBand changed as expected.

    However, I would caution you that if you buy it from the Korean store and leave, you will need to maintain your account with the Korean store active in order to upgrade it in the future. For something you are likely to keep around like Garage Band, I would buy it with whichever account you consider your permanent one.
