    Hi All -

    I'm trying to buy a 'touch' soccer game that MacWorld is highlighting in an article. However, when I click MW's link I am taken to iTunes and told it's only available in the European iTunes store. So... stupid question. Can I buy an app from another countrie's iTunes and will it work just dandy on my iPhone?

    How do you go about switching to other iTunes stores?

    You can buy an App from any store as long as you got an iTunes account for that country setup with a proper address and CC.

    Apps purchased from any store will work fine on any iPhone.

    You can switch to another country by going to the home of iTunes music store and scroll down to the bottom. There is a flag icon at the bottom right corner.

    I don't know about switching between different countries iTunes Store/App Store .. or how to manage multiples if you got them. But if there is something that for whatever reason is only available in certain iTunes Stores/App Stores .. then you cannot purchase it unless you have an iTunes account in that country (which would mean having an address and probably a credit card ... maybe a PayPal account with an address in that country would do??)
