    Does anybody know if it is possible to gift an app to my family in Canada if I live in the states and have a US iTunes account? When I try to gift an app it says that it can only be redeemed in the USA. Is there any way around this?

    Providing the app is available in both country's then it's fine!

    Are you sure? I don't want to pay and then find out that the recipient can never redeem it. Maybe I can test it with a $0.99 app first.

    There's definitely a disclaimer that says "GIFTS CAN ONLY BE REDEEMED IN THE STORE COUNTRY WHERE THEY ORIGINATED. THIS GIFT WILL ONLY BE REDEEMABLE IN THE US STORE" when I attempt to gift an app in iTunes.

    Why don't you test it the as you said? No one will give you a 100% answer like the test you told us about.

    I just thought that maybe somebody had actually tried it.

    NO it is NOT possible. Tested and verified (cause I did not read the fine print first).

    Gifts can only be redeemed in the store they were purchased in.

    You have to create an account in the other countries store and purchase it there as a gift.
