Does the region of the phone affect how certain apps work?

I tried a Latin American variant of the 532, and even though my sim was United States-English, some of the apps didn't work right at all. I changed the language of the phone to English-United States and I also deleted the extra keyboards too. GroupMe wouldn't even load at all. It showed that I wasn't in any groups and they never loaded. However, when I put my sim in an American phone, GroupMe worked just fine. (For reference, I am an American who lives in the United States)

So does the region/origin of the phone affect how certain apps work, and if they will work at all?

Has this happened to anyone else? This kind of thing makes me rethink buying unlocked phones from other countries.
