Yesterday we told you Apple re-launched the “iTunes 12 Days of Christmas” website in Europe for the 2010 holiday season. On the website, a banner suggested that an official iPhone app would come soon to let users receive push notifications for exclusive offers in the iTunes Store. The app is now available, it’s free and it runs both on the iPhone and iPad.
From December 26th until January 6th, Apple will give away a selection of books, apps, songs, movies and TV episodes for free. The app doesn’t show much right, except that it asks you for push notification authorization and it displays a countdown to the daily giveaway on screen.
The app is not available in the US Store, I downloaded my copy from the UK one. I guess it should be available in other European stores as well. If you have a UK account, you can go download the app here.
The 12 Days of Christmas app will allow you to download a free gift from iTunes every day from 26 December - 6 January direct from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.
Like the music, TV, iBooks, apps and films you receive? The app also offers recommendations of other content that you might like.
Download this free app now and be sure to turn on Push Notifications when prompted. You’ll receive an alert every day when your new gift is available.
