Don't know what to give friends or family this holiday or for any other special occasion? Microsoft is making it easy with a Digital Gift Cards app that will let you send a gift card in various denominations to your loved ones so that they can redeem the amount to purchase apps, movies, music, or other content from Xbox, Windows, or Windows Phone stores.
Here are some of the features of the app:
- Select a gift by occasion and interests.
- Include a personal note.
- Easily select friends and family from your contact list.
- Send your gift today or select a future delivery date – no shipping deadlines or last minute trips to the store.
- The perfect "add-on" for family and friends receiving an Xbox or Windows device.
- Track and manage your gifts using the History feature.
- Recipients can choose great content from the Xbox and Windows stores to be enjoyed on their Windows 8 phone, PC, tablet, or Xbox.
Additionally, you can also plan ahead by pre-scheduling the gift card for future delivery on a specific date.
