Today's Gift from Apple is Best Yet: Scorsese Film Hugo

We're in day five of Apple's free app 12 Days of Gifts, and today's present is the best yet: the award-winning 2011 film Hugo, directed by Martin Scorsese. If you haven't yet downloaded the app, now would be a good time to do it. 

Yesterday there were scattered reports online that people were complaining about Apple's gifts, especially since yesterday's offering was a game for kids. Some people who downloaded it and found out it was for children then actually went to the App Store and criticized it. But I  think most people would be happy with today's offering. So far we've gotten a couple games, a travel book, some Justin Timberlake music, a TV pilot episode, and a movie. And if you're adding it up, that totals more than five because one day there were actually two different gifts. I think this a fun app from Apple and am looking forward to seeing what else is coming up. I hope there are more gifts like today's.
