Get free apps from Amazon Appstore for non-US users

I won't get into the details. Generally other then an Amazon account, you need two key items:

  1. Access to a US VPN.
  2. Amazon One-click set to a US postal address.
You can only purchase through the PC browser then download the apps through the Amazon Appstore app. I have not tried VPN on a mobile device but it may work.

That's really all there is to get free apps from Amazon Appstore. This should also work for Kindle and MP3 store. 

Warning: Try not to use your main Amazon account if the US address is not yours.

And their solution is to downgrade all new and recontract customers from the previous 12GB plans to new 2GB plans! Best moneygrabbing move ever, no need upgrade your hardware and charge customers move for less.
