iTunes App Store Now Supported in Armenia, Botswana, Bulgaria, Jordan, Kenya, Macedonia, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritius, Niger, Senegal, Tunisia, and Uganda
Apple's iPhone Developer News feed has announced that the iTunes App Store is now supported in 9 additional countries:
You can now distribute your apps to more customers with the addition of App Store support in Armenia, Botswana, Bulgaria, Jordan, Kenya, Macedonia, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritius, Niger, Senegal, Tunisia, and Uganda. Log in to iTunes Connect to view and update the countries where your applications are available.
This contrasts sharply with other platforms where the various marketplaces and catalogs have very limited international presence (i.e. you can't buy apps in most countries outside the US). The existing iTunes footprint gave Apple and the iPhone and iPod touch a huge global advantage and it's nice to see they're continuing to push it.
Now they -- and developers (and licensors in some cases) -- just need to make more of the apps available internationally!
