I want to gift a couple apps to my mom, but am not familiar with the process. I remember seeing the gifting option before the new App Store on my iPhone, but now it's not there or I am missing something. So I see its still possible in iTunes on my PC, but I only see people only able to redeem through the iTunes software when I search the web. Her phone is her PC, so is it still this way? Thanks.

Minimum purchase of iTunes Gift Card on the Apple Store app is $25. I live in AZ and she is in Michigan. Although the gift card is a novel idea, at this point it overkill for the type of user she is.

Yeah I wish there was a option to just purchase the app for somebody and be able to send it to them like you can do on blackberry's app world. Hopefully we can get a feature like that soon.

I have gifted an app and even songs in iTunes. I paid for it and entered their email address. It sends them a link to download.

I have never tried it from my phone, so I am not sure. I just did some searching and this feature is no longer available in iOS 6. If you are running iOS 5 you can gift from your iPhone.

That is my main concern at this point. They don't use a PC as they live in a very rural area. So if they need to use iTunes to download the app I gift then it won't work. I was hoping someone has already tried this before. Thanks guys. I am sure someone will pop in with an experience.

I think it was a step backwards to remove the gifting part from the App Store. Now I have to go to the clunky iTunes software to do a rather quick task.
