In-app gifting enables app fans to easily pay the joy forward
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 15, 2010
Last-minute shoppers rejoice: ‘Gifting an App’ to proud owners (or owners-to-be) of an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch is as hassle-free as it is easy on the pocketbook. Adding to the simplicity, Fotonauts Inc., creator of Fotopedia.com and publisher of Apple Hall of Fame app Fotopedia Heritage, announced today that its brand-new app, Fotopedia National Parks, brings ‘In-app Gifting’ to the marketplace.
iPads and iPhones are destined to keep spirits bright this year, but consumers should also realize that they must be filled with apps in order to complete the experience. That’s why gifting an app is not only fun, but practical.
Fotopedia National Parks: Inspiring App for all Ages, with New ‘In-app Gifting’
Launched just yesterday, Fotopedia National Parks has further simplified the gifting experience for the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. With the new ‘In-app Gifting’, users of the popular app can select ‘Gift this App’ directly from the app’s home page and well as through the sharing menu anywhere in the app.
“In-app gifting enables app fans to easily pay the joy forward,” said Christophe Daligault, SVP Global Business, Fotonauts Inc. “With an overwhelming selection of apps out there right now, it’s becoming increasingly important for consumers to rely on their friends, family and workmates to share apps that are useful and inspiring. That’s why we created in-app gifting.”
The app features the work of famed photographer Quang-Tuan Luong, who used large format photography throughout his 10-year journey across the 58 US National Parks. Keeping the photograph front-and-center, while including all of the popular Fotopedia features, this is an app for all ages, a family-friendly digital gift this holiday season.
