This is true. I can get the app, using VPN, but all it does it open up the Amazon app and not the App itself.

Changing your DNS or proxy settings, or doing a transparent proxy would get around this since all your traffic - including traffic from various apps - would be sent through the US.

Sorry but no! At the rate of 1 email a night from them and 1 answer a day from me, it could be 2012 before they figure it out (if I'm lucky...)

Please do! However I'm thinking it's the device itself that may be the problem. Kobo support may have to figure this one out...

The Amazon Appstore isn't bound to your location, but your credit card number.
Look at this: http://android.modaco.com/topic/3361...ing-paid-apps/
I'm using the Paypal Mastercard dummy as 1-click.

I actually already bought something, although I'm in Canada.

We're not looking to get into the app store with the VPN, we want to use it to watch US and other countries' TV sites such Hulu etc. perhaps you should start a new thread about how to get into the Amazon appstore using your method? I know that in some other threads some persons were wanting to get access to paid apps.

I think some of us want both . I know you worked hard on this, so I can understand why you want to separate the issues, but it seems ok to me to have them together or separate.

OTOH this technique will be lost in this thread and it is an important thing for a bunch of folks, I bet.
