What's New in Version 3.2.2
- Fixes an issue with sorting the people list
Good, could be great
I love all the ways you can customize this app, especially the ability to create custom events on any day of the year. However, as others have said, the user interface is not intuitive. I'm sure that with time I'll become more familiar with it and be able to navigate it more quickly, so this is a minor issue. There are two major features that I feel this app lacks. 1- There should be a view where you can see all upcoming events arranged by date. 2- There should be a way to set customizable alarms for each event. For example, if I need to buy a birthday gift for a co-worker, I'd set the alarm a week in advance of her birthday, but since my sister lives on another continent, I'd set the alarm for her birthday gift a month in advance. As far as I can tell, this app has no alarm feature at all. For some reason, I was under the impression that it did, and that's why I chose this app over others. I'm very disappointed not to have this feature, which seems like it would be a very logical and useful thing to include in the next version of this app.
Update: I got a new phone and I was able to figure out how to transfer all the archived info to my new phone. I did lose all my pictures but at least I have all the other info! Still a great app.
This my second holiday season using this. Plus I've used it for birthdays in between. It's easy to use and helps me keep track of gifts. I've got five kids and four of them have birthdays at the end of the year. It's always tough to keep track of what's for birthdays vs Christmas. PLUS I do my mothers shopping for them so I can set up a separate category for her shopping. It easily lets me move things from one place to another as I figure out what is for who and when and from who -- I know confusing right?! But this makes it much easier. And any gifts that I have bought just to have can be stored in the app (with a picture) until I decide to give it to someone. I don't have to dig in my 'present boxes' to see what I've got stored. Did I mention I love this app? :)
I've tried one other gift program which I had like very much until an update caused it to crash incessantly. I tried mGifts based on the solid reviews and it has proven to be a solid tool. After testing for about 6 months now, I have deleted my previous gift app in favor of mGifts.
While the previous app did have a automatic gift addition feature I really liked (when it worked), that was not enough to win me over. What I love about mGifts is that it is well organized, intuitive, small (I like having lots of apps and pics so size is always a major consideration), includes essential gift/event budget tracking, and a couple copy/pastes gives me the same result as the previous app, minus the crashes.
I've already recommended mGifts to friends. Thanks for a solid app!
