Apple has brought back the option for an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch user to buy an application in the App Store app and give it away as a gift. The option to “gift app” was built into the iOS App Store App in iOS 5, but disappeared when iOS 6 was released a few months ago.

One nice little feature included in the iOS 6 App Store is that any apps you “gift” to other users can now be scheduled for delivery at a later date (up to 90 days). If you have an iOS application you would like to give during the holidays, you are now going to be able to schedule it so the recipient can get it right on Christmas day.
