Mongolians, Micronesians Rejoice: iTunes App Store Reaches 32 More Countries

During his WWDC keynote address, Apple CEO Tim Cook promised that the company would soon extend the reach of the iTunes App Store to 32 more countries. Yesterday afternoon, Apple did just that.

According to an announcement broadcast to iOS developers Thursday, the App Store is now available in a grand total of 155 countries. Among the new 32: Albania, Fiji, Micronesia, Mongolia, Nepal, Swaziland, Tajikistan, Ukraine and Zimbabwe.

Not the largest of territories, but together they bolster the App Store’s already impressive breadth. As we reported earlier this month, there are currently about 400 million App Store accounts — with registered credit cards.

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
