How To Create Your Own Canadian App Store Account
Don't be left out in the cold again!
There are a ton of games that typically release via the Canadian App Store that you might end up seeing here on Modojo that you want to get into. The truth is, it seems like more often than not, games are sprouting for Canadian gamers than they are for Americans or other countries. You don't have to be left out in the cold, though. No matter where you're from out in the world, you can get in on these types of soft-launches by following a few simple steps. Before you know it, you'll be eating maple syrup and practicing curling in your driveway, too. Make sure you use your newfound Canadian powers for good.
If you're using a PC or a Mac you'll have to open up iTunes, head to the App Store, and change the territory you're browsing from. Look at the bottom right hand corner of the App Store to see your flag represented there. Click it to choose the Canadian App Store. Obviously that's a white flag with two red stripes and a red maple leaf. Choose that option. You should now have changed your country in the App Store. Keep in mind that this isn't localized only to Canada. If there's another country you want to browse in, you can use this guide to do the same exact thing.
Don't create a new account just yet, though. Download a free app and wait for a dialogue box to pop up that prompts you to create a new account, and go from there.
Use a different email than the one you use for your main account and create a new account, choosing "none" for your payment option and continuing on from there. This is the easy part, just make sure you don't end up trying to pay for something you don't want. That'll open up a whole new can of worms.
You'll be asked to fill in a Canadian address from here, so if you don't have a friend willing to vouch for you, just enter the address of a Canadian establishment you've found online. It won't be terribly difficult to find one that works for you, but make sure you use a legitimate address and aren't using one that might cause undue harassment or privacy issues for someone else.
You're almost home free. Make sure you log into your new account on the device you wish to download all of your Canadian soft launch titles on, and you're done! You can now download all the soft launch titles we talk about on Modojo, and you can log in and out as you see fit. No worries here. Now go forth and become Canadian at will!
