Day 5 – Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing
This gaming app was available on day 5 but again many of your experienced downloading issues.
Day 6 – David Guetta – Nothing But The Beat
Well, day 6 arrived and Apple gifted David Guetta, Nothing But the Beat tracks to you. These include Medley: Paris/Without You/Lunar/Sunshine and Without You (featuring Usher).
Day 7 – Snapseed – iPhoneography App
This was a strange giveaway, not for the app in question as this is a fantastic photo app, definitely one of the best. But, more the case that we had ‘discovered’ this app going free on day 6 before it was officially announced as part of the 12 Days of Christmas Day 7 giveaway. Nevertheless, for anyone who hadn’t already got this app, it was a great one to pick up.
Day 8 – One Direction
A musical one for Day 8 courtesy of One Direction with Gotta Be You single. Good track.
