Gifting is Back! Learn How to Gift Apps with iOS 6.0.

On Sep­tem­ber 21, 2012, Apple stated that “Cur­rently, app gift­ing is not avail­able from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iOS 6. How­ever, you can gift iOS apps from the iTunes Store on a Mac or PC.” Recently, App Gift­ing returned! At LightAr­row, we believe it would be splen­did to give the gift of pro­duc­tiv­ity for the hol­i­days so we were very pleased to hear the news. To share our excite­ment, we put together a post to show you exactly how it works.

To Gift an App

Locate the App you wish to gift in the App Store, and then tap the Share but­ton in the upper right corner.

Give the Gift of LifeTopix for the Holidays

You’ll see the fol­low­ing screen. Tap the Gift icon to continue.

Gift LifeTopix for the Holidays

After you tap the Gift icon, you can gift the app via email. Sim­ply add the recipient’s Email address, the Sender’s name (per­haps Santa?), your email address, a short mes­sage, and the spe­cific date. And just a few days ago, Apple added the abil­ity to spec­ify the date of when the recip­i­ent will receive the app (up to 90 days in advance). The new addi­tion is per­fect for birth­days, anniver­saries, and other hol­i­days. After you com­plete the fields, sim­ply click Next.

Send LifeTopix as Gift

After tap­ping Next, you can select from a group of col­or­ful themes. Just select a theme and tap Next.
