App developers can now widen their reach, with Apple opening up the App Store in 33 new territories across the world. The newly-added countries will also have access to Apple’s iCloud service once iOS 5 is released to the masses.
The list of newly-apped countries is as follows: Algeria, Angola, Anguilla, Antigua, and Barbuda, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Bahrain, Barbados, Belarus, Belize, Bermuda, Bolivia, British Virgin Islands, Brunei, Cayman Islands, Cyprus, Dominica, Ghana, Grenada, Guyana, Iceland, Montserrat, Nigeria, Oman, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and The Grenadines, Suriname, Tanzania, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos, Uzbekistan, Yemen
Developers can make their iOS and Mac apps available in these new countries by going to the Contracts, Tax, and Banking module in iTunes Connect and accept the latest Paid Applications agreement.
At the time of writing more than 500,000 apps were available on the App Store that had been downloaded over 15 billion times, although that number has undoubtedly shot up since then.
