Apps are an integral part of your iPhone or iPad experience; as a matter of fact, apps can actually enhance the user experience. Without apps, your smartphone is another feature phone.

But do you have access to all apps you require on your iPhone? Sometimes, developers release some apps for a particular country or region, and not for the entire world. This is when you wish you were born in a country from where you could gain access to your favourite app. But it is a wish that could not be fulfilled.

    Hi, what happened to the none option in the payment? I’m currently in US app store and wishes to switch to Japan app store, but there’s no “none” option now for Japan app store. Did they ban that or something?

  • While you can select None from the initial payment options screen, this method still requires a valid payment method for the country you have selected. For some reason, it will not accept US credit cards for other countries, which makes no sense considering you can use the card in other countries and the options it pops up are for Visa/Mastercard/Amex. Any other suggestions? This used to be easier.
