There's an app for everything, say tech pundits. If you would rather give your techie friends and folk something to run on their devices, there are some very handy options available. The following three are bound to be hits in particular

Press Reader
Give a person the joy of choosing from hundreds of newspapers from around the world by giving them a month’s subscription of this app. It works on all popular platforms including Android, iOS, BlackBerry. You can download as much as you want for $29.95 a month.

Kindle app (with an e-book)
That’s right, if you think your friend is the book-ish type and possesses just about any kind of smartphone or tablet, gift them an e-book from Amazon’s Kindle store. They will be able to read it on Android, iOS and Windows Phone without any problems. All they need is the Kindle app — and that is available for free.

Windows 8
Do your friends a favour and get them the latest flavour of Windows. An upgrade comes for as little as R699 if they bought their computer recently, or go the whole hog and buy them the disk for R3,499. The ultimate upgrade gift, we say.
