I'm a US citizen living in China. When I was home in the US I was able to download all the Android apps I needed. But now I'm back in China, and after having to erase my Android and start over to try to solve its battery problem, I'm finding that several of the apps I want are not available to me through Google Play, because I'm in China. These include: The New York Times, Slate, and The Guardian. Even when I use my VPN on my Android, I still can't download these apps. Is there any other way to fool my phone, or Google Play, into thinking I'm in the US and not China, and thus letting me download the apps I want.
