Hi Eddie,

 

Sorry that you can't get AppWorld in your country.

 

You can use a proxy to access AppWorld. There are some sites online that offer a list of publix proxies:

http://www.xroxy.com/proxy-country-US.htm

 

But these are very slow.

 

There are some paid services that give you faster proxy access.

 

Alternatively, you can do what I do and use Amazon to create a personal (and high-speed) proxy:

Once you have your proxy details to hand, go into the wifi connections options, edit your wifi connection and add the proxy details there.

 

Before you open AppWorld, I'd suggest loading a web page first just to check it is all working.

 

I hope that this helps you!
