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.

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.
