Apple isn’t exactly renowned for being wallet friendly, but once a year the Californians reluctantly succumb to the spirit of Christmas and give away lots of free stuff.
Yes, it’s time once again for Apple’s 12 Days of Christmas app, which brings free junk from iTunes from December 26 to January 6.
The free content will be available for 24 hours, and the astute among you may have noticed that the 12 Days of Christmas promotion started yesterday. That means you’ve potentially missed out on – wait for it – a Coldplay EP and accompanying video. Ahem.
I’d open the app and tell you what the free 12 Days of Christmas gift for December 27 is, but it’s not freaking compatible with the 2nd generation iPod touch. Bah.
You can, however, grab the free 12 Days of Christmas app from the App Store if you have an iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad, or iPod touch 3rd or 4th generation. Oh, and iOS 4.3 or above.
If it’s anything like previous years, we expect free music, apps, books and movies to be on the 12 Days of Christmas menu. Not too shabby.
