Apple Begins Offering Free Content in 'Apple Store' iOS App with 'Color Zen'

Following an update to its Apple Store iOS app late last month, Apple has now begun offering the reported free iTunes Store, App Store, and iBookstore content through the app (via Flo's Weblog [Google translation]).

As in the leaked sample screenshot, the initial offering is Color Zen, a puzzle game typically priced at $0.99. The free content is accessed by visiting any of the pages for individual Apple retail stores in the app. Users do not need to be physically present in the store for the offer to appear.

Codes for Color Zen distributed through the app are valid through August 27.

I've always found the Apple Store app to be pretty hilarious.

''Hey Jon, thanks for blowing your life savings on a phone that we're going to indirectly call useless in 3 years time & drop all support for. In the mean time - why not spend your wife's life savings on some more of our stuff?''

If your life savings is a few hundred dollars Apple products might not be for you.

This is disrespectful. Just because i live somewhere else i'm a lesser customer to Apple? Bad move.

Oh come on... The world doesn't revolve around you...

Apple store is only available in countries where Apple has *shocker* STORES. I'm currently not living in one of those countries.


Disrespectful.
It doesn't revolve around Apple either. I pay same money as everyone else and living in Europe even more in many cases.

This is disrespectful.
While it may be annoying, disrespectful is the wrong word. You could use your 'argument' against pretty much any situation.

Kelloggs sell their products worldwide and I've been buying their products in the UK for years. After going to the US, I tried Froot Loops and I found they were very nice. However, they are not available in the UK. But as I still buy other Kelloggs products and they are taking my hard earned money, they must be being disrespectful as they do not offer this particular product to residents in a certain country. That argument is exactly the same as yours, instead using a different company and product.

They have now actually introduced Froot Loops into the UK, but they aren't the same recipe. I guess they are being disrespectful to me by not offering me the same as the people living in the US.

:rolleyes:

Even in the US Kellogg's has different markets. Frosted Rice Krispies has always been a challenge to find. I don't think they make them any more but every so often I'd see they were out again but not available everywhere (or in every state). And I live in Michigan, which is the home of Kellogg's.

Don't even get me started on the McRib!
