I would like to see the comments from other countries (ie. us) while leaving my appstore set to my country (Hungary) for updates. Unfortunately, there are few comments written here for apps, most of the time there are none, which isn't too helpful.

Is there any way to do this? I have only a hungarian credit card. I can show comments by switching to US, but I cannot update apps until I switch back. Switching only for buying would be acceptable if there is no alternative.


Edit: from my ipad, without using my computer

Take Reeder for example:

You can change the country by using the country flag on the bottom right of the page, or directly on the URL if you know the country code.
