It seems the monster of segregation has arrived in the App Store. There are apps that are unavailable in some countries, even though the App Store itself is. An example is Jott for iPhone. Unless you are a US user, you can't obtain this free application. Frankly, I can't think of a single reason why a freeware app like this should be restricted and denied to users in other countries. The mess with the music and video stores is understandable; because the recording/movie industries have already established their questionable practices in other media (eg: DVD regions), establishing an entire infrastructure to maintain this behaviour, with local distributors/arms/licensing. However this is software we're talking about; one vendor/licensor. Unless Apple intend to start a separation of the haves and have-nots (with the preference clearly aimed at US users), they need to back away from the path they're heading down, and the annoyed customers and unpredictable nature of app availability.
