Download a Free App published only to India AppStore while my primary iTunes account is US Appstore?

I have years (maybe a decade) with my iTunes account on US Appstore. I do not wish to switch permanently as I have Apps bought from it.

I just need a few 'Free' India AppStore apps now and then for when I visit.

Is there some temporary way to switch or buy them?

Some kind of workaround?
e.g. Maybe create an alternate user account and as a family member on India AppStore?

You can have multiple accounts, you just have to log in and out to switch between them.

After you created an India account, log out of your US account:

  • Settings -> App and iTunes Stores -> Apple ID -> Sign Out

Then sign in with your India account. Swipe close your AppStore app, then go into it again. Now you can download apps from your India account.

  • I only wish to switch temporarily for few apps while I visit India, and wish to switch back to US store immediately without losing any of my US store stuff. Is this doable without issues? – Alex S Sep 19 '15 at 11:15
  • Well yes, have you tried the above? – emotality Sep 19 '15 at 13:10
  • I was afraid I will lose my US store & US store apps on the iPhone so I wanted to be sure before I tried it. Can I switch right back or is there a waiting period/ i.e. you can also switch stores certain times in X weeks etc? – Alex S Sep 20 '15 at 18:48
  • Last time I did it it worked perfectly :) no waiting period – emotality Sep 21 '15 at 12:13
