Purchasing for someone

Hello,

 

Before upgrading my app world, there was an option to request a gift. But I don't seem to find it now!

 

I want to purchase an app for a friend, how can I do that?

 

Thanks,

Re: Purchasing for someone

Hello,

In the most current AppWorld versions, "gifting" was indeed removed. The only way you could do this would be, I suppose, to change the payment details on your friends BB ID to your credit card, conduct the purchase, and then change their payment details back to whatever they had before.

A painful way to accomplish it, yes...but it is what it is.

Good luck!
