Have a family member who also loves their iDevice? If You won’t find a better gift for them than a few apps to make that experience better. Here are our favourite paid apps worth gifting to the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch owner on your Christmas list.

Some of these apps also come in free versions, but the paid-for versions definitely add extra value. A digital download can be tricky to wrap, so we have created gift tag images which you can use when presenting your recipient with their serial number. Click on any tag for a larger version.

Sparrow


For the Gmail lover on your list, you’re not going to find a better email manager than Sparrow. It not only allows you to use simple Gmail functions such as add labels and tags, but it’s also slick and easy to use. The best thing about Sparrow is that it feels like you’re actually in Gmail, but you don’t have to work with Google’s less-then-ideal Gmail app. If you have someone on your list who desperately needs a better email app, Sparrow is a perfect fit.
