    Today was the first (and only) that the 12 Days app actually let me purchase the gift. The app finally worked.

    On previous days, the app let me find out what the gift was, but I had to actually purchase the gifts that interested me in iTunes; I was unable to buy any of them on my iPhone 5 (iOS 7.0.4). The [FREE] button would change to [BUY ALBUM] or [BUY APP] or [BUY BOOK], but the pressing it again only changed it back to [FREE]. Nothing downloaded. It didn't even ask for my password.

    Did anyone else have this frustrating experience? Is this a data point or an anecdote?

    It's an anecdote, but I know what caused it -- I can replicate the experience if I wait too long between the first press (changing from the price to "BUY") and the second (which would either ask you for your iTunes password or go ahead and say "INSTALLING" or "DOWNLOADING" as the case may be). It can sometimes be a bit tricky to hit the right spot on an iPhone, particularly if you have large fingers as I do.
