    U.K. Free iTunes 2013

    I have volunteered to manage the UK list again for this year following my previous efforts (see links in my sig.)

    I aim to update this post once a week on Tuesday.

    Once again Apple are offering 12 Days Of Gifts App where From 26 December – 6 January, you can download a gift each day—songs, apps, books, films and more—with the 12 Days of Gifts app. Each day’s gift will only be available for 24 hours, so download the free app to make sure you don’t miss out.

    Sadly Apple have chosen to make this year's app compatible with iOS 7 and above. My 4th Gen iPod Touch is not compatible, I'll try to maintain the listing but it's become more complicated than in previous years.


    Where possible I have linked to the HD version of the file, if you prefer the SD version to save space click the SD option on the ITMS store page before you download.

    Day 12. Jan 6th:
    Day 11. Jan 5th: App - Mr. Crab By Illusion Labs
    Day 10. Jan 4th: Movie - Despicable Me Presents: Minion Madness By Kyle Balda & Samuel Tourneux HD
    Day 9. Jan 3rd: Music EP - Tom Odell (Live) By Tom Odell
    Day 8. Jan 2nd: Book - Pictures of Lily By Paige Toon
    Day 7. Jan 1st: App - Rayman Jungle Run By Ubisoft
    Day 6. Dec 31st: Music EP - Avicii - New Year's Eve Mix - Single
    Day 5. Dec 30th: Movie - Home Alone By Chris Columbus HD
    Day 4. Dec 29th: App - Toca House By Toca Boca AB
    Day 3. Dec 28th: Book - Camilla Läckberg - The Ice Princess
    Day 2. Dec 27th: TV Episode - Africa - Kalahari HD
    Day 1. Dec 26th: Music EP - Justin Timberlake - iTunes Festival: London 2013 - Pop

    Sounds to me like they just basically copied the riff of Led IMO to try to get people to like this song.

    I found one good song in Canada. I was hoping they'd have some more known stuff.

    It's been a while since I visited this list.
    Lots has changed in iTunes stores over the years.
    Thought I would leave a note on what's free where as of now on the iTMS's around the world...

    Song of the Week countries...new tracks each Tuesday (or so)...
    • Australia (and New Zealand) - SOTW
    • Brazil - SOTW
    • Canada - 2 SOTWs (1 French; 1 English)
    • France - SOTW
    • Germany (and Austria and Switzerland) - SOTW
    • India - SOTW
    • Italy - SOTW
    • Mexico - SOTW
    • Netherlands - SOTW
    • Russia - SOTW
    • Spain - SOTW
    • Sweden (and Norway and Finland) - SOTW
    • UK (and Ireland) - SOTW
    • US - SOTW

    Most weeks it's a different song in each listed country...up to 14 different tracks. But sometimes record labels make deals to spread the same single across many of the countries at once.

    Other countries sometimes have a free song - such as Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Poland, etc. - but not organized as a song of the week regular feature (although it is sometimes called the song of the week).

    If I'm missing any countries let me know.

    I have same observation as yours (except I see Turkey, Denmark and never see Poland).
    There is a total of 26 storefronts with free songs.
    Out of these 26 storefronts, 21 have been observed with one or more weekly free song(s) constantly.

    I've been doing these observations for my app Free Song Notifier (not associated with MacRumors). It currently supports the 21 storefronts with constant weekly free songs, other storefronts will be add to the app once proven to have weekly free songs constantly.

    I also read online:
    • Japan used to have free songs constantly, but now they are gone.
    • Taiwan, Hong Kong used to have when music store launches, then gone, and seems to be coming back again with Singapore at Week 31

    List of storefronts:
    • Australia (AU)
    • Austria (AT) - (observed for one week only)
    • Brazil (BR)
    • Canada (CA)
    • Denmark (DK)
    • Finland (FI)
    • France (FR)
    • Germany (DE)
    • Hong Kong (HK) - (observed for one week only)
    • India (IN)
    • Ireland (IE)
    • Italy (IT)
    • Japan (JP) - (observed for more than 10 weeks, only 1 or 2 week with free songs)
    • Mexico (MX)
    • Netherlands (NL)
    • New Zealand (NZ)
    • Norway (NO)
    • Russia (RU)
    • Singapore (SG) - (observed for one week only)
    • Spain (ES)
    • Sweden (SE)
    • Switzerland (CH)
    • Taiwan (TW) - (observed for one week only)
    • Turkey (TR)
    • United Kingdom (GB)
    • United States (US)

    The 12 Days of Gifts app will give you a daily code for a free tune, movie, book, or app from Thursday December 26 to Monday January 6. Each item will be available for only 24 hours.

    UK store has not offered a new track this week either, guess the guys at Apple are on holiday.

    Seems so, my script wasn't able to spot one for any of the countries.
    May be the 12 days free app offered one, so they don't offer another free song of the week.

    Not that you necessarily WANT to download it, but "Flatline" by Justin Bieber is free just in the US. (It's not free in Canada, UK or Australia right now, others are assumed) It is not listed on the "Free On iTunes" page

    12 Days Of Gifts 2013-2014 by Country

    Is there any way someone with iOS7 could post the 12 Days gifts for each Country?

    I know today (Day 5) has Hugo is US & Canada & Home Alone is the UK, but what about the other countries? I have been trying to find a list for Australia & South Africa & it does not seem there is 1 available.
    If I had iOS7 I would change the store in the app & post all of them (Or at least all the English Speaking ones) but unfortunately it's a very complex app that requires a more advanced processor than I have to be able to display a picture every day.
