Gifting games...

Hi
Recently, somebody has tried gifting me a game. They have been charged for it, but I don't have it. Here are my questions:
How would I recieve it?
How long does it take roughly?

FYI: The game is available in both countries. We're from the same country.

If you have any questions i'll answer them.

Thanks in advance
Elliot

Are you sure he sent it to the correct email? Double check with them.

I got my gifted Catacombs as soon as I saw they had said they were sending out the gifts...

Well, I don't really know then. Tell your friend to double check his purchase history to check if he really did purchase the app for you. (*gasp* he may be lying!! roflol) Through my experience the email should be sent to you at a maxiumum of a couple of minutes.

If nothing else works, try contacting Apple about it.

Hope this helps!

Did you get a code that you had to redeem, or was it on your iTunes or what?

You get an email that gives you a link through which you can redeem your code.
