Apple Store App Promotion Offers Christmas Songs For Free

4 December 2013

9to5Mac:

As we’ve previously reported, Apple began giving away select paid apps in its Apple Store app recently as an added incentive to download and check out the app.

This week in particular Apple has replaced the free app with free music from iTunes instead. The playlist is appropriately holiday themed and features songs such as Silent Night by Kelly Clarkson and The First Noel by Mary J Blige.

I don’t think the song choice is particularly compelling, but this is not the only opportunity for Apple to give stuff away — it will likely do the ‘12 Days of Christmas’ giveaways soon.

Still, whatever Apple chooses to give away is better than the ‘gift’ Apple retail store employees received. Their Christmas gift was the opportunity to buy a $50 iTunes gift card for $40. Big whoop.
