Did you find an interesting app that you want to gift to someone who uses an iOS device? This tutorial will take you through the process of gifting an app to your loved ones right from your iPhone or iPad running iOS 7. Just make sure you are signed in to your Apple account and there’s a valid credit card associated with it. That’s about all you need.

The only place where this process differs from that in iOS 6 is where you add the details. Rest of it is almost the same – barring the interface which now looks flatter.

The credit card that is associated with your account will be charged the amount. Make sure you have a valid card added to your account before you proceed. That makes the steps easier. Even otherwise, Apple will prompt you for the credit card information when you tap on Buy in the last step.

That’s all for now!
