    It's my sister's birthday today, and I want to get her a certain app from the app store. But I have not found an option for giving the app as a gift. I do not want to give her a $15 gift card (The app isn't that expensive) Mainly because she won't buy the app. (She wants the app, she just doesn't want to pay what the author is asking for)
    Any ideas?

    contact the developer and see if they can send you a promo code if u pay them. also ask kiks52 he does all that work w/ the giveaways so he probably knows how to get some codes

    I am not going to do that. She already says that she doesn't want it jailbroken. Plus I haven't found any app store apps on installer.

    What you could do is download/buy the app on itunes.

    Then she connects her ipod to itunes (or get her to somehow during her birthday) and then realizes the app is downloaded into the ipod.

    There isnt a gift feature, but how you gonna surprise her if there was? You can't actually "send" an app, lol.
