The iPhone App Store now allows users to give applications as presents, along with TV shows and music tracks.
Apple has added an option to 'Gift This App' as part of the drop-down menu that users can select when viewing a particular app.
The gift can be personalised with a message that is attached and sent to the user along with the gifted app.
The app is made available via a voucher, which you can either email to the recipient, or print and hand over in person.
A closer inspection of the terms and conditions shows that people will not be able to buy upgrades for existing apps that are already owned by the user and it is also impossible to buy extra content.
