On the first day of Christmas Apple gave to me... ?

I’m not sure how to end that verse and will have to wait until December 26 to find out.

The second most popular free app in the iTunes Store is Apple’s 12 Days of Gifts. The app became available on Tuesday of this week.

From December 26 to January 6 — the 12 Days of Christmas — you will be allowed to download one free gift each day if you have this app.

You’ll have to wait until each day to download the gift, which could be a book, song, movie or app.

Each day’s gift will only be available for 24 hours so if you’re still stuffing your face with cassava pie on Boxing Day and forget to download it, you will miss out.

Never worry though, as there will be a new gift on December 27. 

Will it be worth it? 

Who knows, but that adds to the appeal of the app. It could be something really great or it could be something you will have no interest in. But it’s free, so there’s no reason to complain.

Just a world of warning, not all the gifts may be available in Bermuda.
