To install US apps on your PS3, you need a US PSN account. Simply go to http://us.playstation.com/psn/ and create a US PSN account. Once done, use the US account with the Playstation store and search for the apps and install them. From then on, you are good to go.
Please note that if you have already had the US application installed, you might need to reset the app's settings. This is done by holding down Start and Select while opening the app.
The first step of troubleshooting should always be to restart the device(s) and router. Then check your setup status in your SmartDNS dashboard.
