    My friend recently got a touch so I was wondering if gifting apps could mean trading them. So here's a few questions about the new iOS 4 feature:

    1. Will you be charged again if you've already purchased the app being gifted?

    2. Will the gifted app have updates that your friend can access them?

    Gifting the app basicly means buying the app for him and giving it to him. If you try to download the same app again you'll be charged but it will be free for him. Just after you gift the app to him the app is just like if he bought it himself.

    I'm wondering this too,

    I was trying to gift someone on a Canadian account a game from my US account, and the store didn't complain about it.... But it didn't let me pay for the gift from my balance so I never finished the transaction.

    I asked apple about this a while ago, they said that gifting apps is iTunes store specific. It does not work across different country's stores.
