    Hi Guys,

    Background
    I am a health related profesional and have set up an online business. I have come across an application on iTunes that would greatly benefit my patients communication ability. I would be looking to retail;
    A. Application only
    B. App & iPod touch bundle

    The query
    I want to undertsand if the customer chooses either option A or B, how can I make this app available to the buyer?

    In case of option A
    Ex -
    App cost : £10
    Retail price including ongoing support if purchased from my website : £15

    I want to undertsand what are my options of sending this app to buyer?
    A. buying gift cards and relying on buyer to redeem is not ideal
    B. asking buyer to send me there existing device, so I can upload the app is not practical

    What other options are there for me to "send" the app to the buyer?

    In csae of option B
    Ex -
    App cost & £iPod Touc 8GB : £10 + £165 = £175
    Retail price of App including ongoing support & iPod Touch 8GB if purchased from my website : £15 + £165 = £180

    I want to understand if I can buy the app and install it on the buyer's device and then send it over to them? WOuld this method work if the buyer already has an exisitng iTunes account and would it pose syncing issues?

    Hope this makes sense and any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Device:

    There is a thing on iTunes called "Gift this (song,video, app)" click that and type in your clients iTunes user id

    With Apps it doesnt give you the option of "gift this", which seems to be the dificulty.
