    A friend of mine sent me an ipa of a free game that's currently only out in canada, but whenever I try to install it it says it isn't authorized. Is there any way around this? I'm not trying to pirate as the game is free I just can't download it because it's only out in Canada :(

    Afraid not....You will have to log in with your friend's account on your pc. You can probably explore the option of editing the plist?

    Why not just create a Canadian account? You don't need a credit card to do so if you are downloading a free app.

    Try doing it by redeeming a promo code of a...less popular app/game. That was how I created a UK account a couple of months ago.

    It says you need a gift card or credit card info though?

    Even when you are trying to create an account via redeeming a game/app through a promo code? >.>

    Another idea (probably not the easiest, mind!) is how about appealing to the developer to release it outside Canada? There should be a way to contact them on their website, which should be linked from the game's page in iTunes (when viewing the Canadian store, naturally).

    If they are a small indie outfit they will probably either seriously consider releasing worldwide, or will at least give you a good explanation why they can't.

    Brazil
    I keep an account in the USA store to download free stuff. I could also use gift cards there but I do my shopping on the Uruguayan store (Brazilian sucks, not all games are there) because the USA store won't accept a Brazilian international credit card. For examples, Facebook Camera and Micromedex (a drug reference) are free and not available in other stores around here so I use my US account to get them.

    I even got Rage HD when it went free, no need to enter credit card info on other store if you use a zip code from there. Go to the canadian store with a new email, use a Canada ZIP and you can get the free stuff.

    Installing stand alone IPAs just by double clicking them, only if you jailbreak.
