Why does Apple require that people have a US iTunes account to download from the US App Store and vice versa for other countries? I know, I can complain to app creators and whine at them as to why don't they spread their apps to other regions. But Apple's approach is contrary to their messaging of unified this, that and the other. People move between countries, people spend long periods of time in different countries. Why should people create separate iTunes accounts and go through that hassle and switching between them? The benefits of that rule by Apple seem to escape me, so why do they do it? (other than because they can).
