Tip: Get free iPhone apps without a credit card

Learn how to set up an iTunes App Store account that does not require a credit card for free iPhone and iPod Touch apps.

The iTunes Store rarely listed free items until the debut of the iTunes App Store. Now, you'll find thousands of free iPhone and iPod Touch apps there, none of which require a credit card to download--a nice change for anyone loathe to hand over private card information.

Apple, Inc.

Apple has released a new technical bulletin that gives explicit details on how to create an iTunes Store account without a credit card, entitled, surprisingly enough, Create an iTunes App Store account without a credit card.

The bulletin's instructions are straightforward, but just remember that you need to have opened and be in the App Store before creating the account.
