You can finally gift apps from the App Store on iOS again
The magic of the holiday season is clearly not lost on Apple, as the company has brought back app gifting just in time to stuff some virtual stockings, 9to5Mac reports. The feature was strangely removed with the launch of iOS 6, but it's been added once again and should be live in the App Store for you as we speak.
To gift an app, simply click the action button on the top bar of any paid app in the App Store. Apps can be purchased up to 90 days in advance of the gifting date, with a handy scheduling feature to ensure your present arrives just when you want it to.
