European App Stores Get Apple's iTunes 12 Days of [Free Stuff for] Christmas App

Apple has released a new iPhone app called iTunes 12 Days of Christmas [Free - iTunes link] that provides push notifications for a FREE iTunes gift every day from December 26 to January 7 -- but the catch is (for right now at least) you have to have a UK, Portuguese, etc. App Store account.

That's right, iTunes 12 Days of Christmas isn't showing up in the US or Canadian App Store yet. Whether it's a promotion specific to certain European countries, or whether Apple needs to figure out licensing for different regions before rolling it out, it's Joy to the Euro, bah-humbug for North America for now.

ProSwitcher for Jailbreak Brings Safari Pages, webOS Cards-style Multitasking UI to iPhone

If you're Jailbroken yet still frustrated that you can't move between iPhone apps as easily as you can web pages in Safari (or Palm webOS users can in card view), ProSwitcher [Free beta - Cydia] is something to consider.

A front end to Backgrounder, which enables multitasking on a Jailbroken iPhone or iPod touch, duplicates the "Pages" metaphor in MobileSafari, including swipe-able switching and X-icon closing, and for good measure adds in the swipe-up-to-close gesture from Palm's webOS "Cards" interface.

Amateur Surgeon Christmas Edition -- Bloody Good Fun for the Holidays

Amateur Surgeon Christmas Edition [Free - iTunes link] by Adult Swim is for anyone who enjoyed the regular version, the kid's game Operation, or whose tastes for Xmas humor turn decidedly towards the dark.

You are Dr. Alan Probe, an Amateur Surgeon who has had a horrible midair collision with Santa's sleigh. Now it is up to you to try to heal the injured faery-folk and save Xmas. This will be a difficult feat, as you have few skills and your tools would, frankly, scare an inquisitor from the middle ages. (What, the thought of toy grabber-arms and and etch-o-sketches as surgical gear doesn't terrify you?).

If you have a steady hand and don't mind a splash of gore in your cartoony fun, give this game a shot. The power of Christmas compels you! ….flatline
