Cool this Brazil App Store, but… where are the games? Yes, it was one of the first questions we asked ourselves and we soon realized that we Brazil we do not have access to all applications released to the American public. But why that? Injustice?
Well, the causes are not very clear, but the fact is that not all applications are available in all countries, some are limited geographically. But do we run out of games? Well, the problem is that all electronic games sold in the country need authorization from the Ministry of Justice …
But while the minister does not release, how about signing up for American App Store to have access to all the applications that the Brazilian does not have? Or nothing Uruguayan, to use a Brazilian international card?
We saw some methods online, but none satisfied us. Most use sites that disclose codes for free music. The problem is that these codes have a time limit, and then our tutorial would soon be out of date.
Until we discovered an easy sign-up method on the App Store. You don’t need to pick up code, visit a website, anything like that. A simple solution, as is typical here on the Blog. And to demonstrate it, we made a short explanatory video. To make it easier to explain, you will need to view the sidebar that has always existed on iTunes, but that in the new version 11 it was hidden. Open iTunes and if it is not already visible, press the keys CTRL + S (this on Windows; if you use Mac, go to the menu To view and select Show Sidebar).
The good thing about opening an account at United States store is that you take the chance to download the CD covers directly in iTunes, besides being able to get the free music of the week made available by the iTunes Store every 7 days. Cool, huh?
Obviously, as you chose not to enter your credit card number (since only Americans are accepted, Brazil’s international is not valid), you will only be able to download the applications free. You can place credits by purchasing Gift Cards iTunes on eBay or Free market. But be very careful not to be fooled in these places, always look for someone who shows a lot of security (a website that we trust a lot is this one).
- This trick is valid for opening accounts in any country
- Apple has recently changed its address identification system, forcing it to provide an address that actually exists. Therefore, it is important to search Google for the exact address of an existing restaurant or store.
- You can make several different accounts, but each needs a different email address
- In case you don’t find the NONE option, you skipped some part, because the process remains the same, Apple hasn’t changed anything.
- When choosing any US address on Google, choose a ZIP code for a state that does not cover local tax. See their list here.
- If you are having a problem like “This application is not allowed to run on this computer”, look in iTunes for the STORE menu and choose the option “Authorize this computer”.
- It is important to always have the latest iTunes installed: http://www.itunes.com.
