iTunes Gift Card for Christmas?

iTunesSo, I can see that a lot of you are getting iTunes Gift cards for Christmas. Just some quick tips. They can be used for both apps and music, not just music. You can also redeem them right on your iPhone, not just in iTunes. In iTunes on your computer you just click “redeem” on the top right hand side of the iTunes Store. On your iPhone, open iTunes, not the App Store, and tap the last tab, “Downloads”. Then tap redeem in the top right corner. Just type in your code and tap redeem. Close iTunes, then open the App Store and close it. It should prompt you for your iTunes password. Once you enter it, it should start downloading.

This also works for free promo codes from developers. Also, remember that when you buy a song or application, all other iPhones on the same account can download them for free. This is a great way to share the cost of a game your brother or sister might also want. If you have any other questions on how this all works, please let me know! [Read more…]

Target Application – Easy and Fun Way to Find Gift Ideas!

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

Target Ok, I might be slightly bias about this application because I love Target and do a ton of shopping there but, I really like their new application! It is basically an application that gives you gift ideas based on a person’s gender and age.

When you open the app, you will get a nice loading screen and then the main screen (with some cheery jiggle bells that only last a second or two). Ok, from here you will notice the option to choose whether the person you are choosing a gift for is male or female and then you can slide the age bar until you have the age range that person falls into. Once you have selected the gender and age of the person, give your iPhone a little shake. This will bring up a gift suggestion. It will display the title of the gift and the cost of the gift. If it looks like a gift you would like to consider, tap the screen. This will bring up a menu with the options to; add that gift to your favorites, find that gift at a Target store, buy the gift at, start your search over and Cancel.
