I have an iTunes account with an Italian billing address; because of this Apple assumes that I want the app store in Italian which is not the case.
Part of the UI is in Italian (other parts are in English, go figure), the app descriptions and their reviews are in Italian, even the "Top apps" are the top apps in Italy instead of worldwide.
The biggest problem of all is that there is no way to see the ratings for apps without logging out first. This is a big inconvenience as almost all applications show up as having "no ratings" (as only local ratings and reviews are shown, which are very few and almost non existent).
This of course severely hinders my capability of knowing whether an app is good or not. Even the most popular apps have either 0 ratings or less than 5.
As an example, YNAB which currently has 1574 ratings when viewed from the English store shows up as "No Ratings" while I am logged in.
Is there any way to change the language to English, and see worldwide ratings without having to log out first?
EDIT: 6 years later, there appears to be still no solution.
