Can give away iPhone and iPod touch applications – Macitynet.it
Interesting news for those who want to use the App Store to make a gift or simply turn a thought to a friend or loved one: the applications can now also be given in a very easy and transparent way without necessarily buying an iTunes card.
To access the option, simply select the pop-up that appears in the buy menu and you will have available, in addition to the traditional choices "Add to wish list", "Recommended" and "Copy Link" and the social variants (share on Twitter and Facebook) also Give this App. By selecting the function you will be transported to an ad hoc page that you see pictured below with all the necessary fields, from the email of the person (or people, you can also give the program to more than one friend) to send the App to until the accompanying message. Users to whom we have sent the gift will receive the message and a code to collect the application.
Note that Apple has also provided for the possibility that the application is not compatible with our contact person; in this case we can ask for a refund of the cost of the application.
The gifts are valid are in the store where they were purchased; the terms of purchase have been modified to take account of the novelty. In particular, in-app purchases and updating of the operating system for iPod touch are excluded from gifts.
