12 Days of Gifts Finally Scores with Hugo

Apple's 12 Days of Gifts promotion hasn't been something of a big "meh" so far thanks to the choice of free offerings, although today's download steps it up a notch. Instead of songs and games, today Apple is offering Martin Scorsese's Hugo -- the popular fantasy movie that follows the adventures of an orphan trying to unravel the mystery of an automaton his father was repairing before his death.

Movies typically sell on the iTunes Store for between US$12 and $20, which makes today's free download a nice deal. Adding in the fact that it's Hugo makes the deal even better.

To find out about the free downloads you'll need Apple's 12 Days of Gifts app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It's a free download at Apple's iTunes-based App Store.
