The most common way to give apps, music, videos or other gifts from the iTunes store to someone else who has an iPhone or other iOS device is to simply buy an iTunes or Amazon Gift Card. You might not want to be that common though and you can offer a more personalized gift to someone by choosing a special app from the iTunes store, such as a sports app for the sports enthusiast or a game app for the favorite gamer in your life.

The first thing you will want to do in order to give iPhone apps to someone else the is to make sure you are signed into your own iTunes account. After you are logged into iTunes, search for the app you want to give in the iTunes store. When you find the perfect app to give to your intended recipient, just click on “Share”. You will find that option in the upper right hand corner on the app details page. After you have clicked on Share, a pop up window with sharing options will show up.

When the sharing options window pops up for the app you want to give as a gift, you can choose to give the gift as an app. This will open a form you can fill out with the person’s information and you will need the email address that your intended recipient uses for his or her iTunes account. You can also include a personal note that will be emailed along with the gift if you want to include one.

After you have added the email address of the person you want to send the app to and included a note if you want to, you will be able to pick a theme for your gift such as a Birthday, holiday or other type of theme. This theme will create the design for the email that is sent notifying your recipient of the gift you are sending for a more festive appearance.

Finally, all you have to do is verify if all the information you entered is correct and then choose “Buy Gift”. This will process your order and an email will be sent to the person you chose to buy the app for.
