iTunes 12 Days of Gifts

There is a free app in the App Store that will allow you to receive a free gift every day for 12 days starting Dec 26th. The first gift is up -- a free four song live EP by Justin Timberlake. I think each gift will only be available for 24 hrs, and only through the app (though I could be wrong about that). Worth checking out though.

I believe you will only hear about the gifts through the app, but you can get to the items via normal iTunes. I just opened up pc-based iTunes, searched for Justin and found today's free download. Theoretically, had I not had the app, I wouldn't even have known to look.

Just an add on. You need to be able to download ios 7.0 or higher to download this app. So anyone with older iPods (like me), you're out of luck with the app.

A Rovio game called Tiny Thief is now showing as free in the app though it's a little early for tomorrow's deal.

The deals are different in each country, and apparently sometimes different in the iPad vs iPhone 12 Days app.

The Tiny Thief game has been free for about a week. I think all the freebies in each store are free if you navigate to them directly.

The sad thing is that this might not have been originally the free gift of the day since this was already posted the day before!

I had found this in the free episode section on the 3rd in the afternoon and I downloaded it then. So either iTunes jump the boat and released it way too early or they just decided to add this as the free gift at the last minute.

Strangely enough, I wish they would offered the first episode of the show. That would have been awesome.
