At the annual Worldwide Developers Conference, WWDC 2012, held on June 11, Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, has announced the imminent expansion of the App Store. And on June 22 he confirmed his words that went live: 32 countries, including Ukraine have come to the App Store.
Here’s the complete list:
Albania, Benin, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cape Verde, Chad, Congo, Fiji, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Liberia, Malawi, Mauritania, Federated States of Micronesia, Mongolia, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Sao Tome and Principe, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Swaziland, Tajikistan, Turmkenistan, Ukraine, and Zimbabwe.
Thus, the total number of countries having access to the store of mobile applications for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is 155 now.
To change the country on the App Store you should run iTunes, click on iTunes Store in the left sidebar, scroll iTunes’ window to the very bottom and click on the flag icon in the bottom right-hand corner. You will see a list of available countries. Select the desired one (e.g., Ukraine) and now you can buy mobile applications, books, podcasts and iTunes U tutorials. However, on the Ukrainian App Store you will see only the flag and the messages while registering new Apple ID (greeting, license agreement, and etc.) in Ukrainian. The store itself is in English and all purchases are in dollars.
