Even though it’s been a few days since Christmas, there are still a lot of people who are making up for not buying presents to their friends. With New Year’s Eve just a few days away, it really is time for some people to make up for the gifts they were unable to buy. If you are still wondering what you should be giving to your friends, why not give them an app they would enjoy on their Android? Or better yet, why not reward yourself for not giving in to the holiday rush by indulging in one of the Android apps available?

If you just go to the Android Marketplace, you’ll find a ton of apps you can use. Apart from finding apps that can give you enjoyment, there are some that are dedicated to providing you the convenience you need–mobile banking, communication, utility apps, and more. Because of the number of apps on the internet, it is your job to keep yourself updated with the ones that are available.

In the past, people loved getting a new mobile phone as a Christmas gift. But because this is too expensive to buy, it is not a wise idea to give all of your friends a new smartphone or tablet. So what comes close? Well, giving them a new app of course! With the number of different apps available on Android Market, you’ll be sure to find one that your friend will enjoy. The good thing about buying these apps is you can actually save money buying presents for your friends! In addition to that, they will be pleased that you decided to buy them a new app they have always wanted to purchase for their own.


Sadly, Android still has not seen the market for this opportunity. iTunes Store has already discovered this and have given their users the ability to give apps as presents to their loved ones. Throughout the holiday season, Apple was able to make a profit out of this idea while Android users could only dream of such option.

Since the Android Marketplace is still considered as a cash cow, it needs to come up with more ways to make money. By providing an option to give gifts, its users will be able to enjoy this arena more. This, in turn, will bring in more money to Google. We still don’t get why Google didn’t think of this opportunity. Still, we’re hoping Google reconsiders this option so our friends can send us some really cool apps *wink wink*!
