British iPad owners and soon-to-be owners can rejoice – Apple has finally switched on its iPad App Store in the UK, which means that users can now purchase apps directly, rather than via a US iTunes account.
Apple has confirmed that countries including UK, Belgium, Spain, Israel, France, the Philippines and New Zealand can now access the App Store, according to TechCrunch.
iPaddies will still be unable to buy an iBook or iWork app outside Apple’s US homeland. But from today they will be able to log on to the store, using their UK iTunes account, and download apps from the likes of the Financial Times, Marvel Comics and Wall Street Journal.
