Super Apple apps deals today make great opportunities for giving apps gifts to Apple users who either already have an Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch or are getting an Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch this Christmas.

In a Sunday holiday email to Apple employees, Apple CEO Tim Cook, mentions that “millions of people around the world, from all walks of life, are experiencing Apple products for the first time” and notes that “those moments of surprise and delight are magical”.
