Different operating systems, different gift cards

Posted by jfab67 on February 4th, 2016

In a funny way of looking at things, we can say that there are two kinds of people out there: those who use the Android and those who use Apple. Divisions are never appealing, but the two operating systems have dictated the development of two types of applications, each suitable for a specific OS. Apps are made available online for both and there is always something to buy in App Stores for both sides: music apps, reading apps, gaming apps and well...for any sort of entertainment. If you know someone that loves trying out apps, you can brighten their day with wither a Google Play gift card or an iTunes gift card.

Many of the best apps online are not free.  One has to purchase the apps to enjoy them. And people do, a lot. Everyone nowadays uses their phone or tablet to download apps for basic actions performed on the phone or table, but they also try out new apps for the sake of improved performance and original design. Buying the apps is usually inexpensive, but if one purchases on a regular basis, offering a Google Play gift card or an iTunes gift card is a great gift. You can surprise someone in a pleasant manner by giving them something they will actually use and not simply store somewhere in the house and forget all about it. In turn, they will benefit from something they use quite often and will help them cut down their expenses.

It may also happen that, on certain occasions, you may want to offer someone a gift and simply don’t know what to choose. It is actually a frustrating and time-consuming experience. You may have to go into shops or browse online for various products, spend time ordering, wait for the delivery, wrap up the gift nicely and this can take a lot of effort. When you need a gift on short notice, it is even more daunting. Luckily for you, there are modern solutions to the problem: a Google Play gift card or an iTunes gift card will be delivered instantly via e-mail and you can offer it to the person you want to just as fast and in the same way, no matter where the person is.

The only problem you may have is to know the operating system they use on their devices (phone, laptop or tablet). Most people know this, especially if the persons they are buying the gift for are close to them. If not, just send them a text and find out quickly. Make a joke and said you found a phone – ask if it is theirs. Once you do, you can choose between a Google Play gift card and an iTunes gift card. The sum you choose to spend is transferred to their balance account. They can use the money to purchase anything they want from the App Store.

As a matter of fact, you don’t have to think about these gift cards simply as presents for another person, as you can buy one for yourself. If you have nothing in mind at the moment, but your budget allows you the spending, you might want to have the purchase done for another time, to use and download whenever you need to. It can be useful when you are travelling or unable to pay for the app at a certain time. Gift cards are ready to be used in various regions, but it is always a good idea to check ahead of time is yours is on the list.

If you are an Android user, you will definitely appreciate the Google Play gift card. If you are out of ideas of what to get someone, why not consider the iTunes gift card and let them choose their music as they please?
