    I'm in the UK and would buy Apps from the UK store for my iPhone. I had a look at the American Store and saw a few apps on there that i would like that aren't in the UK store.

    Is there a way to purchase these as when i try to takes me to the UK store.

    Thanks in advance.

    You would think Apple would give the buyer the ability to purchase from any App Store ... more money for Apple ... wonder if it's a licensing thing? a technology thing? hmmmm :confused:

    If you have an account in another store you can buy from that store.

    It's an export and tax thing.

    For the same reason you can only buy music out of your respective store. Every country uses different currency/song prices, so keeping it all consistent would be a pain.
