Easy to Use - but would like a little more functionality

I've used the website for about 5 years and was honestly a little reluctant to switch to the app because some of my group members complained about it and I knew where everything was on the website. I love that the app is pretty intuitive and I'm pretty sure the complainers from my group must not be very tech savvy.
I probably would have chosen 4.5 stars if that was an option, because the app doesn't have the same functionality as the website, but I think 4 stars is too low of a rating, so 5 stars it is. Would love to see the ability to be able to mark participants as no shows from the app and the ability to manage groups.
I think it's good for the average user, but an organizer still needs to use the website.


Shopping made easy!

What an easy way to create a Secret Santa exchange AND shop! My nieces and nephews are wishing for things left and right and usually I get the “I don’t know” answer when I ask what they want. They walk you through the steps and even my 75 year old mother can use it! We will definitely be using this for all our shopping such as birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day etc! My college aged children are like little kids making their wish list for Santa! Great way to get everyone in the Christmas Spirit! Thanks Elves!
