Official iPhone Flickr app not available in Finland?

The title pretty much says it: I have been waiting for a proper Flickr app to appear for iPhone, and now that an official one has been announced to be available, I am of course eagerly trying to install. But it seems that this app is for some reason filtered out of the Finnish iTunes Store; at least I cannot found it anywhere. Anyone out there with more luck?

  1. Seems to be the case. You _can_ create a new user account for the US Store, and download the Flickr-app that way, but of course you would be violating Apple’s service terms. Seems to be pretty common business among Finnish users to get to the forbidden apples (heheh) available in the US Store.

  2. Thanks, I will consider that (these region restrictions make absolutely no sense: this is a piece of free, utility software, for god’s sake). Making alternative accounts might be a bit of a hassle, though. I once already managed to delete all my iPhone apps by just plugging the device into another computer…
