Need a last minute gift? Give the gift of an app for the holidays!

Did you know that you can gift an app? Not only does the iTunes store allow you to purchase gift cards and have them emailed, but users can also purchase apps and gift them to others. This is great for grandparents who are wanting to help load up a grandchild's new Christmas gift or for other family members who need to send a quick gift from across the country.

Not sure how to send iTunes gift cards or apps electronically? Here are some helpful instructions from iTunes, but even better, we have a video from Smart Apps for Kids.

Interested in sending a gift but not sure what apps to send? Here are some of our top recommendations:

Toca Boca

As with all Toca Boca toys, there are no high scores, time limits or stressful music. Your kids can play with it however they want!

Therefore we make digital toys and games that help stimulate the imagination, and that you can play together with your kids. Best of all - we do it in a safe way without third-party advertising or in-app purchases.
