    I was waiting for this!!!

    • +1

      Same! I haven't found as many good freebies this year unfortunately. :(

  • +10

    hmmm, a 65 meg app to tell us there will be free apps ????

    • +5

      The graphics must be special

      • +4

        Retina assets for the iPad (this is a universal app) can be pretty big in size.

    • +3

      It's because of all of the language-specific localisations. See here.

  • Anyone still have the last year one on their phone? Just curious. :P

    • I installed it the other day using the Purchased tab thinking they'd update the app

    • Mine still sitting there from last year :L

  • +6

    Or, you know, we can just post/update this post with a direct link to the sale as the days go by.

    • yes please.

    • It will probably require direct links from the app or even download screens popping up in the app, so worth getting and you will get push notifications each day

  • +4

    I'm disappointed it required iOS7. No apps for my iPod Touch 4G :-(

    • Doesn't necessarily mean you can't download the daily gifts… assuming somebody tells you what they are!

      ps. my iPod Touch 4 is way faster than my iPhone 4… hmm

    • +3

      If you want, I'll modify it to support iOS 6 and link it to you later. That's how I got Battlefield Commander to work on my iOS 6.0 iPad.

      • +1

        Thumbs up if u could do it. I'm yet to upgrade to iOS 7 too and certainly not doing it just for this app.

      • Sure. That would be great thanks. Do I need to jailbreak to install it?

        • It makes it easier to do do this if jailbroken because then I don't need your AppStore email address. But I'm replying to my parent comment with the instructions which should work for everyone without me needing anything from you.

      • +3

        Going over the process, I realized that for this to work best, everyone would need to install AppSync or tell me their iTunes account email address.. I doubt everyone wants to do that so here's the instructions on how to edit and install the app.

        1. Download the app onto your computer from iTunes.
        2. Right click on the app and click "Go to Folder" or "Go to Finder" or whatever takes you to its location.
        3. Extract the file using an unarchiver.
        4. Open the folder of extracted files, open the Payload folder within, and then open the "12 Days" file.
        5. Inside the "12 Days", there is a file named "Info.plist". Open it.
        6. Inside the plist, find the "MinimumOsVersion" key.
        7. Change it's value from "7.0" to "6.0".
        8. Save and close the file.
        9. Rezip the whole "12 days" app folder we initially unzipped.
        10. Change the file extension to ipa.
        • +2

          Sir, if you can instruct us how to get the .ipa back into our iDevices, you win the Internets for today.

        • +2

          Oh right! Sorry!

          What you do is this:

          Remember the folder where iTunes saved the original ipa file? That's also the folder where we unarchived the file's contents into a folder.

          All you do is when you've gone through the process and rezipped the file, delete the already existing ipa and put your new edited file there. iTunes will then use the edited file when you add the app to your device.

          Edit:

          What I mean is delete the original ipa file once you Unarchive it, go through the process and it should work fine.

    oh, still using ios6 dont want to update to 7. is there anyway to get around it ?

    • There is this: http://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comments/1mjw36/people_with_ol...

      … and then there is this: http://i.imgur.com/NaSUL5D.png

      You'll have to wait and see what gets posted on here, or other websites.

    • +3

      I can edit the app and link you to an upload later if you like.

      • Sweet. What would be really awesome is if you could bring back iOS 6 on my iPhone 4!

      • Yes will be great, thank you very much I really appreciate it.

    Upgrade to iOS 7 to get these bonuses or wait for jailbreak on 6.1.4…

    Decisions

  • +1

    Hopefully much better than last year, it was like finding the "bargain bin of stuff that nobody wants"

  • +1

    Someone please update this thread with the apps list

    I don't want to upgrade to ios 7..

  • I was waiting for it :)

  • There's a "gift to get you started" ready to download now.

    I got single from Lorde. Can anyone else confirm?

  • someone plz update this thread with the gifts

  • Justin Timberlake, 2 live songs from iTunes festival and 2 live videos

    https://itunes.apple.com/au/album/itunes-festival-london-201...

    I think I'll pass =\

    • thanks

      please update this thread with daily gifts

      • +2

        Added day 2 and day 3 just released to the description now.

        Will try to keep it updated as people post the new deal each day, as I don't use Apple.

  • Day 4 in US itunes is Lonely Planet's best of 2014 book, which is $7 in Aus store.

    Any tips on signing up to US account? It doesnt accept my card and there's no option to specify 'none' for a payment option.

    • +1

      google itunes credit hack

  • Free movie "Home Alone" in both HD and SD

  • they need more free movies

  • +1

    iTunes US now offering Toca House for free. It's also free here in Aust. https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/toca-house/id495680460

  • Sorry about the neg, it was by mistake

  • +1

    Ah Home Alone

    The heart warming, family classic about two criminals who try to rob and murder an abandoned child at Christmas.

  • -2

    Anyway to download this I'm on ios 6 and refuse to update,

      • +2

        I like you. You remind me of when I was young and stupid.

    • You don't need the app (and therefore iOS 7) to get the freebies.

    • brightaussie is right, if it is an app that requires ios 7 you wont be able to install it, but other than that search for it and you will be able to install it

  • +1

    The HD movie is 4.69 GB and the SD movie is 1.73 GB. Both in widescreen format which might not look that good with the iPad's 4:3 form factor.

    • You can watch it as 16:9 on the iPad anyway with letterbox or doubletap to zoom, not a big deal really versus theatrical 21:9 ratios

  • +1

    Thank you for updating the post!

  • I still think that some of the freebies are worth to be published as separate deals, so people don't miss them. Like the Home Alone movie, which is the first really decent movie.

    • +1

      It's highlighted at the top of the front page now so it can't be missed like it was previously :) It will be updated with the new deal each day as they are posted.

  • do we need the 12 days app or can we just download the freebies directly?

  • Why is it showing $14.99 to buy ang $3.99 to rent when I click view gift?

    • are u logged into US itunes store? You need to be in AUS itunes store.

      • How do I check if I am in US or AU store?

        I have clicked on the link for day 5 above directly too?

    • I had the same thing happen with one of the first gifts - some African documentary that doesn't even seem to be listed here :)

      • +1

        Only one episode of the Africa documentary was free, not the whole season.

  • Is it me or feel like the program is a trick that forces you to update to IOS 7. Apple wants users to all update by having these nice freebies

    • +1

      It is you :) All major Apple apps require the latest version of iOS, and it has been like that since iOS 4.0 as far as I remember.

    • -1

      if you have an iphone 4s or less don't upgrade!!!!!
      it slows ur devices down so you then feel like you need to get the latest iphone

      • I have an iPhone 4S and it runs very well; some features are faster even. I just disabled the elaborate animations by enabling Reduce Motion (Settings > Accessibility > Reduce Motion).

    • Not at all. You can still access the freebies without the app. Further, there are many other apps that have become iOS 7 only because the update has many new developers APIs and features.

  • why is the hide from listing button not working?

  • Don't forget the itunes extras of the movie. That is a separate download.

  • -3

    It's getting many negative reviews in the comment section…so I'd be cautious

    • +1

      Cautious of what?

  • +2

    Maybe ive been on torrents too lng…these freebies dont excite me at all!

    Home Alone? Meh - I prefer this version instead (Family Guy clip)
