What's New in Version 2.4.1
I find it incredibly helpful to have one app to put all my gift shopping info into, so I have a central pool of events, gifts and people to buy for all in one place. That being said, the app should add some features and simplify some items. First, add iCloud /Dropbox / other cloud service integration. Second, it should be easier to add retailers, ideas, and people. Adding events is pretty much ok. Third, it should be easier to connect all these items together. The app is basically a relational database. A couple of times I had duplicated information because apparently you can add the same info in a couple of different places, so I had to go back and undo some info twice. It should be possible to enter the info once and link to it from multiple places (events, people, idea pad). If that can be made easier I will gladly re-review the app and give it 5 stars.
Happy to use but needs work
I agree with many reviewers comments of wanting to see all the people who are still outstanding to buy for, an archive of what was previously bought (since I have been known to accidentally give the same gift twice). And another who said widget "a" would be nice to apply to multitude of people rather than opening one person at a time and duplicating the gift. My personal unmet desire was to see all the upcoming events as a list or calendar of whose birthdays were upcoming and in what order, and whether I had purchased something or not. So far, I have missed every persons birthday because the little pop up doesn't do the trick for me. And I'm not going thru all the effort of entering an event for every person, every year. Too time consuming.
No More Socks
FABULOUS app!! This is the 2nd year I've used it, and with four kids, their respective spouses, TEN grandkids, plus many other family members, it's the only way I can be sure everyone has the right gifts and the right sizes.
It's so handy to help organize for Christmas shopping. I buy gifts, plus make jewelry all year long, so by the time the season actually arrives, I've often forgotten what I bought and made throughout the year. With this app I save time, and $$$ by not over buying, and seeing at a glance what I already have. I highly recommend it to anyone who is busy. (Who isn't?) Definitely a 5-star app! :)
