    Angry Are you seeing newly released apps on iTunes in different countries?

    Hmm...

    I discovered recently that some apps that i know have been released are not showing up on iTunes lately.

    For example, apps such as True or Dare, Blitz, Star Trigon, etc... have been released but yet I cannot find them in iTunes.

    Are apps now region specific? I am using iTunes 7.7, does it make a difference if I use iTunes 8.0?

    Can other users please share their experiences?

    Some apps are region specific, so they might show up in the US store but not in others or vice versa

    Also, the search feature in iTunes seems to be horrible. Sometimes the app is in iTunes, but you cannot find it using the search feature. You just have to find out the link to the app. iTunes also does not seem to list apps in the order in which they are introduced, so sometimes you will have to go to the second or third page of the App Store to find the apps, as newer apps may not show up on the first page. They sometimes pop up on the third or fourth page. It is really odd! The App Store on the iPhone seems to be updated at different times as well, as apps may appear in iTunes one day, and they will only appear in the App Store on the iPhone the following day. This is really silly, as the apps should be available on both platforms and searchable!! So dig deep into the pages, and you may find Truth or Dare or Spin the Bottle (20 versions of it)! Cheers!

    thanks, everyone.

    this is kinda sad for iTunes. i thought apple is better than this?

    how do find out if an app may be region specific? is there is a telltale sign aside from testing out the search from two iTunes searches from two different countries??
