    Click Sign Out in top-left corner of iTunes Store. Then search for App to gift and click the arrow adjacent the price (which displays as you are not logged-in) you can then Send Gift.

     

    Hope this helps!

    It does -- thanks.  And thanks to everyone who posted helpful info in this thread.

     

    Conor's instructions are simple and correct:

    I have a related but different question. I bought an app that only opens on ipads. Not having an ipad I would like to give it away, that is, transfer my licence to a friend, deleting it from my account.

     

    Any suggestions?

    It seems like a plan that would work for regular apps (thanks for the tip).  I think what's causing it to be more difficult for me, is that the iCreate Magazine app is free, and I want to "gift" one of the in-app-purchases of a particular issue of the magazine.   Oh well.  Maybe later.   Great tip though.  Thanks.

    I'm running App Store 1.2.2 and *cannot* gift 'Day One' to someone who can really use it. I tried signing out, etc. and it STILL tells me its already on the computer and I get only 'Share' buttons. I live in Canada so maybe it's a North American licensing thing. Makes me mad.  

     

    I've contacted the company. Maybe I can buy it from them and they can give her a serial number or something. Grrrrrrr...
