« on: October 12, 2012, 10:55:34 PM »
So maybe this is a dumb question....

Just bear in mind what apps you buy. You'll not have access to the US apple store to update your US only apps when you are in the UK.

I have both US and UK apps on my iPhone/pad and it's a bit of a pain to update, however as long as you have an address and a local credit card in both countries, you are all set. It's just time consuming.

I didn't think of the apps. I'll prolly just get instagram and a few easy ones and then get all the ones i want once i move over and access the UK store. Yay though I can use it there :)

iTunes determines your country based on the credit card registered with your account. If you keep a US card then you'll still have access to the US store, even if you open another account with a UK card.

Interesting! I thought it was based on ip address. Can you have 2 accounts on one computer?

I update my US apps all of the time from the UK, you can still access the US iTunes Store from the UK if you have a US account.

On one computer, sure. On one i-touch/phone/pad/pod? I don't think so. I know with mp3s that were locked you could just share them with your other account, but I haven't heard anything about sharing apps.
