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.

Thought of everything!

Set up our Holiday exchange for 21 people using the app exclusively. This was our first try. Adding kids to the parents account was easy, but getting them added to the exchange wasn’t as intuitive, although we figured it out. Not too bad for a group of people ranging from age 30 to 70+! I like all the options for adding gifts, links, or just verbiage for those asking for non monetary experiences. I also thought the developers figured out all the possible scenarios for the admins. Overall, I think this will be our go to each year and may even set one up for our immediate family to create a wishlist:)

I want to love this app, but for now, I’m going to give it 2 stars. I love how everything is made easy under one app. I had 2 child accounts that I was managing, but a week into the app, it dropped one of my child accounts out of no where. I tried adding it back, but it wouldn’t allow me. Kept saying ‘failed.’ It worked fine on the website. Finally decided to change my password, linked again and it worked. The app didn’t allow me to edit the notes (ex, what size or color). I had to go on the website to do it. I noticed a lot of people were having trouble with the app on their iPhone X. My phone is not an iPhone X. The app needs a little more work, guys.
