  1. Unfortunately the Android apps are not available in Australia because the Amazon AppStore is restricted to within the USA. Can these apps be made available on the Google apps store?
  2. Hi Alberto Catalana, I will look into it and post back here as soon as I find out. I see no reason why they can't.
  3. This is a follow up for Alberto. Unfortunately our partners who created the app tell us that while they "know it is frustrating for international users there isn't much they can do about it right now." I'll keep you posted if anything changes in the near future.
