    bought an ipad 2 a week or so ago, updated to latest system, but when I try and find apps like Demand 5, and iplayer, itunes shows nothing. Bit of a shame, as this was one of the things I bought it for.

    Any ideas why I'm not finding the apps? I'm based in the UK, so shouldn't be a regional problem.

    After running a Google search, I see that there is an app called "Demand 5" in the UK App Store. The description of it (in Wikipedia) says that it's a video on demand service, that the one you mean?

    The same goes for the iPlayer app. It also shows as available in the UK store.

    Which App Store are you searching? You say you're based in the UK ... Is that your App Store? If not, may I recommend you open a UK store account. Because they arent available here in the USA App Store. And, it matters on what account you have as to which store you access. It doesn't have anything to do with where you live, it has to do with which country your Apple ID is tied.

    Thanks Marilyn, didn't realise the stores were not clever enough to pick up national ips. Any idea how to change app store countries?

    Go to iTunes store. Log out of iTunes. Go to bottom of page and you will see a little round flag, click on it, select UK, then log back in.
