[HOWCOMECANNOT] Access the Amazon Appstore from outside of US

The method for accessing the Amazon store is illegal, please do not try it and get yourself in trouble.

Appreciate if mod or admin can quote a clause from Amazon appstore's T&C. People have been trying to circumvent amazon's services to download free kindle books outside US but I don't rem anyone stopping. Same goes to downloading free album art from itunes store.

PM me if anyone wants to know how.

Rather than circumvent the system with possibly illegal credit card numbers, I just got the free version of Rio from the hackers....

Either way is no good, so screw u Amazon. And Rovio.

This is due to market restrictions la, nothing to do with market fragmentation. Even kindle ebooks also not all available in sg wat.

Not say very fun, more like exercise in frustration.

Complete the first batch of level liao, graphics are nicer compared to the original and seasons.

But somehow I miss the angry piggies.

Forging credit card numbers regardless of intent is illegal everywhere. If your method does not involve that, then I see no issue.
