Apple today added the ability for customers to send apps in iTunes as gifts.
The gas station need no longer be the only option for the forgetful party attendee, since you can now purchase apps through the app store and then print or email them as a gift certificate.
The option appears in the dropdown menu in the purchasing options on both the online and iTunes store. The option is not available for in-app purchases, upgrades, updates to iPod touch OS or people looking for a range of gifts at over $10.
Apple continues to push forward, providing more and more features and capability for developers and customers alike in the build up to the release of the iPad.
