Apple is giving away free content every day for 12 days in an app entitled “12 Days of Christmas”, which can be downloaded free of charge here.
Funnily enough, you’ll need to be of the Orthodox faith to truly get into the Christmas spirit, what with the Orthodox Christmas day falling on January 7, the day after Apple’s free content promotion ends.
You see, in Australia at least, the app only works from the 26th of December, doling out a free piece of quality content each day until the 6th of January, a series of days which for traditional Christians is well after the actual pre-Christmas period leading up to December 25.
However, free content is free content, and with episodes of the Big Bang Theory, music from Kings of Leon and other stuff offered free in the past, in a “24 hour download window”, why not jump aboard Apple’s 12 days of the gravy train to see just how savoury and sweet the content is!
Apple also states: “Don’t have an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch? Don’t worry. Come back 26 December to download gifts from your computer.”
I'm not quite sure how you're supposed to download the app if you don't have an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, so Apple's last statement is a curious one, but obviously, there is a way, if you have an iTunes account.
Perhaps you need to download the app when logged into your iTunes account Apple ID on a friend's device first, which would be one way of "registering" with Apple that your iTunes account is due for some free content - we'll ask Apple locally if they have any comment on how to achieve this if you're an iTunes user who hasn't yet succumed to the pleasures of physical iDevice ownership.
Currently, the app shows there are 19 days to go before the free goodies start, at least for Aussies, so this is definitely one free app that should be on your must-download list!
