I'm having problems with market place, with certain apps actually. Some I can easily install or purchase but for some I can’t get the install button neither see ratings or reviews, as a matter of fact all I can see is description and screenshots so I’m curious if this is market place issue or I am doding something wrong?!
Here is an example of apps that I can’t install:
- Ripped by KRYOSOFT
- iWorkout by CODE BEYOND
X in advance,

You're welcome netkodrugi, and yes it's very annoying when an app you really want is unavailable in your region.
I can understand some apps with licencing restrictions such as Netflix etc not being available everywhere, but some apps I just don't understand why they can't be made available worldwide.

Edit: As for this issue, I have noticed it a couple of times when my network connection is weak, as if it can't contact the purchasing part of the store to identify if you've already bought the app. If it's just happened once or twice I'd suggest trying again on a strong Wifi connection

I get that a lot with Xbox live games too (not being able to download). I don't understand why advertise or display an app on someone's phone, in a region where it doesn't work. What's the point?
WP7 should only show me the app only if I can actually put it on my phone, don't dangle it in front of my face.

As a developer it is even more frustrating because at the moment should you want advertising as the means of income for your work instead of charging a fee upfront you're limited to the U.S. This makes developers release their apps with regional restrictions.
Not sure if AdMob will work worldwide. I have to confess that I have yet to have the time to look at it properly.
