Apple’s iTunes 12 Days of Christmas promotion is becoming an event that European users can depend on every year. A new app for its Christmas 2011 giveaway hit the App Store yesterday, and will offer iTunes users a free download every day between December 26 and January 6.
Like previous 12 Days of Christmas promotions, this year will see Apple give away a selection of songs, music videos, apps, and books:
You and your friends can download a fantastic selection of songs, music videos, apps and books for free. Each download will only be available for 24 hours. Get our special 12 Days of Christmas app to make it even easier to access your gifts while you’re on the go.
Unfortunately for those of you in the U.S., it seems this year’s promotion — like previous ones — will be limited to European and Canadian iTunes Stores only.
Once installed, the iTunes 12 Days of Christmas app will request permission to send you push notifications. Be sure to turn this on the app will alert you to new freebies each day — ensuring you don’t miss any.
Until December 26, the app is a little useless, and simply displays a message that tells users to come back on December 26. But again, it’s worth installing it now so that you don’t forget about it and miss any giveaways.
For those without an iOS device, you can download the daily freebie using iTunes on your computer.
