WEFOUNDGift an App!


Whether for a birthday, hunting for an original gift, or when your friends or family gets a new Android smartphone or tablet for the Christmas holidays, a cool idea is to give the gift of an Android app. This could also be something cool to give your kids, after you’ve bought them their first Android phone.

Though there are many great free apps, all without spending a dime, there are many paid apps that are actually top notch Android apps. So gifting an Android app as cool as Monument Valley or Talon for Twitter would make anyone a happy camper.

You’ve likely noticed that at some supermarkets or electronics stores have Google Gift cards hanging strategically at the checkout counter. Getting one of these gift cards is the easiest way to give an app to a friend because you give them the freedom to purchase whatever they like. They come in different amounts (10, 20 and 30). You or the person you’ve gave it to can then employ the gft card on the web or directly from an Android device. In addition to apps, you can also purchase movies, books and music.

The App Store was built on the foundations of its predecessor, the iTunes Store, but some features of the latter didn't immediately appear in the former. On Monday, the App Store filled in another hole in functionality as Apple added the ability to gift apps .

Previously, if you wanted to give the gift of iPhone applications, you had to buy an iTunes gift certificate, meaning that the receiver of your beneficence might very well go spend that money on any app—or, heaven forbid, music, movie, or TV show—of his or her desiring. But now, if it’s Math Flash Cards you want to give them, it is Math Flash Cards they will get.

In order to gift an app, just click the triangle next to any app’s price and choose Gift This App (naturally, you can’t gift free apps). That’ll get you a form you can fill out with your name and e-mail, the recipient’s name and e-mail, and, if you'd like, a personal message. Heck, if you want, you can gift the same app to multiple people by entering several e-mail addresses; you’ll be billed the purchase cost of the app per address. You can either have the gifted app sent by e-mail or print out the gift yourself, for inclusion in a card or letter.

Want to give someone an iOS app as a gift this holiday season? You can gift apps directly from the iPhone , iPod touch, or iPad , without ever touching a computer and without the need for purchasing an iTunes gift card. This makes for a perfect last minute Christmas shopping or birthday present, since you can literally buy someone a present on the car ride over to their house Christmas morning. Gifting apps is very simple:

The app will immediately be sent to the gift recipient, who receives an email with a link to download the iOS app to their iTunes library.

If you’d rather wrap the app as a physical gift, you can do so with iTunes by choosing to print a redeemable code instead of emailing the app. Gifted apps will appear in your purchase history, so if you or the recipient loses the redemption email, it can easily be retrieved again.
