How can i gift an App?

I see all these Dev's giving away promo codes which are probably just codes that they have bought via the iTunes store, how can i gift an App to someone by buying a code?
I remember iTunes had that feature for music, i just never found out how it works.

You can't do that anymore. Plus devs get promo codes to promote their game.

It's never been implemented for apps. However it is on the to do list for apple to do soon! It's only possible to gift music and bids right now.

Really? I could swear I saw that option before *looks it up*

EDIT: Nope, guess not
