Can anyone confirm issues sending gift apps from the iTunes Store? I've gifted several apps to the inlaws for their new iPad, but they've yet to receive a single email at their Verizon.net address. I tried re-sending to a gmail account and still nothing. Could this be an Apple problem?

For the first time I tried gifting an app last month to my niece. I jumped into this not knowing how she would be notified. I assumed via iTunes but then it asked me for her email address. She never got a notification and the email address submitted was correct.

I contacted Apple and got a reply on what to do. I cannot recall the specifics but it seemed like a lot to have to do on both ends and she would probably have a hard time doing it so I just said to heck with it and ate the buck I spent on the gift.

Well, that's unfortunate. I've been able to gift apps in the past, so this must be a recent thing.

Worst case scenario, I eat the $15. Still, there's no excuse for this not to work right.

So, there was no resolution to this?

I just gifted an app to my mom. First time trying to gift an app.
It looks like I completed the form completely, where it even asked if I wanted to gift the app again to another person.

I waited for an email, nothing. And my mother hasn't received anything either.
Just shot them an email to see what's up.
It's only been about 2 hours. But I figured gifted apps would be instant.
