Give a Gift App

Did you know that you can gift an iPhone/iPad app to someone?

Think about it – for a few nickels, you can give loved ones, friends, students, or clients something that they’ll enjoy every day – such as a nugget of Jewish wisdom with links articles, audio and video.

1. You know that most of them have iPhones and/or iPads
2. There are 500,000 apps out there but only a few hundred Jewish ones and the best of these are for the highly-literate – Daf Yomi, etc.

Moreover, once they have the app installed, you can use it as a conversation starter – like, “Did you see today’s amazing Jewish fact” etc.

Better than a book they may or may not read. Better than something that will sit on their desk. This is something they’ll likely use and enjoy (and think of you every day).

How Apple’s gift program works:

Use iTunes or App Store to locate the app.
Under the app icon it will say “Buy this app” and beside that there is a down-arrow. When you click the arrow, you get the option to “gift this app”.
