Is there a difference between the apps when you are logged into the App store in the US and Canada?

The reason I ask is because I have an RSS feed from Pinchmedia.com that tells me all the new Apps released (yes, this feeds my addiction), but often I can't find them on my phone.

In particular, I couldn't find Flycast today, StepTrakLite, Geocaching ToolKit and apparently there is an official Ebay app.

thanks...I tried searching before posting.

Yes, there's a difference.

Get a US iTunes account like this:

and sign in with that account, and you'll see the US iTunes Apps.

Enjoy.

Yes. The developers have an option to restrict content to specific countries.

That being said, I have only found a few apps that seemed to be available in the US but not Canada.

The App Store search database seems to take a bit longer to update with newest additions as well. If something is just released it's possible it wouldn't appear when searching for it (but a direct link would work).

thanks for the replies, I am usually at *cough* work when I am looking for new Apps, so I will have to send the links home and search on iTunes, or use the direct link.
