How to Install Paid and US-only Apps from Android Market

Android Market has thousands of apps, but not all of them are available to users all over the world. Even Android Market itself is not available in every country and some apps are specifically targeted to US markets.

You can download those apps if you have a rooted phone. How? There is an app for that! Market Enabler is an Android app for ‘rooted’ devices that fakes a phone’s location and allows you to access Android Market from other countries.
