Ok - so this was burried deep in the thread.

If you are unable to download an app due to geographic restriction, it's probably because the same email is registered at amazon.com and amazon.ca. You need to flip the country to the app store you want to download from.

Here is how:
1) Go to "Manage my Kindle" http://www.amazon.com/gp/digital/fiona/ ... footer_myk
2) Change country
3) Update

Just did this in order to download tunein radio pro from amazon.ca. My kindle account was defaulting to the US. I needed to change it to Canada then I was able to download the app of the day from amazon.ca without an issue. Once completed, I went back into country setting and put it back to US.
Up and Atom!!!

I had an amazon account WAY before the .ca version ever existed. So my account is a US registered account and I don't mind that. If I use this method, can i switch back and forth seamlessly? I have my parents US address and my CA address stored in my account. Both are real/legit.

Amazon.com Android Free App of the Day RSS Feed - https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user ... onappstore
Is there an RSS feed of the Canadian App of the day? I already had subbed to the US one but if they are going to continue to put up different apps for Canadians, then I'd like to sub to that one as well. I've already missed out on quite a few good free apps b/c of looking at only the US feed.

I did all this for my account and still a no go on being able to get this app due to geographical restrictions. Everything is registered under Canada too, no idea what the deal is with not being able to get this.

I have a US address for .com and a canadian address for .ca
both use the same email address

Amazon has realized both accounts are linked and defaults the app permissions to your country that is selected to your digital profile. Easiest way to change that is in the kindle store - by changing your address to a US address if you'd like to download US specific apps.

Worked for me. If you don't have a registered US address with amazon.com, it will likely not work

Works seamlessly for me. I didn't believe it either until i tried it this morning. I was defaulted to my US address. I changed it to my canadian one. Downloaded tunein pro from amazon.ca then rolled myself back to my US address. No issues at all.

Should mention, I've got US amazon Prime and Amazon Mom. The default shipping address was a US address. This wasn't allowing me to get the amazon.ca free app. Kept saying geographic restrictions. Even though the Manage my kindle page was set to Canada. Key was to change the default shipping address to Canada. download, then switch it back.

I can also now get both .com, and .ca apps also without switching anything. After I flipped my account to .ca and changed the default billing to Canada everything is all good.

Happened to me to. After a switch or two, I can get apps from both sides.
