    The App Store is overflowing with great deals and we hope you’ve taken advantage of the bargains and downloaded a few for your app collection. Not only are these apps entertaining, educational and helpful for you but they also make great Christmas gifts. Did you know Apple has a built in gifting function in iTunes allowing you to pay for and send apps to your friends and family?

    If you would like to gift an app, but you’re not sure how to do it, here’s a quick explanation.

    If you’re on a Mac or PC using iTunes, you’ll first need to lookup the app of your choice in the App Store. Once you find it, look for the down arrow to the right of the price button. Click the arrow and a small window appears with “Gift This App” as the first choice. Select “Gift This App” and the “Give a Gift” screen appears requesting information. Simply select the delivery method, fill in the blanks with the appropriate information and click “Continue.” You’ll then be prompted for your iTunes password. Enter your password and an iTunes “bill” appears. If your information is correct and you want to proceed with the purchase, click “Buy Gift.” You know you’re finished when the “Thank You!” screen appears and you can select either “Done” or “Gift Again.” It’s that easy!

    If you want to gift an app directly from your iPad, lookup the app in the App Store and click on the app to get more details. In the upper right hand corner of the app details screen, you’ll see “Gift This App.” Click on the link and follow the on-screen directions to gift your app.

    So, if you’re looking for some last minute Christmas gifts, why not gift a few apps and finish your holiday shopping? It’s easy to do and there are plenty of deals to be had!

    Here's a great little app to start:

      I'm giving my wife an iPad 2 for Xmas.
      I was going to pick it up today but I forgot my union card and I need it to get the discount.
      I'll be picking it up tomorrow instead.

      Dogs are easy toys and treats. Maybe some cute sweaters to wear on Xmas day!! ;). Safest thing for the older kids is gift certificates so they can buy whatever they want unless they requested something specific otherwise there will be long faces . For wifey, how about some jewels, can never go wrong with that unless she requested something specific.

      Let us know how you make out.
