What's New in Version 3.4.1
- Fixed an issue with the lock screen not being properly displayed
PLEASE NOTE: Sometimes when an app is upgraded, the iPhone can loose the data associated with the app and thus your current list might be lost. Although this is extremely rare, we recommend that you connect your device to your computer and make a backup of your mGifts database and photos via the File Sharing aspect of iTunes (iTunes->Device->Apps scroll to bottom and click on mGifts. Then drag the db file and photos to your computer). Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more information.
Lots of potential!
I'm loving the concept of this app, and have used it all day today to negotiate at least nine gifts on lists for 10 different people, within one event. I've had zero issues that others have experienced ('waiting', force quit, missing names, etc.)
Some things to note: iPhone 6, 9.2 iOS, app installed before iOS update but not opened until after. Also, I did NOT sync any of my contacts - I just manually entered the name of the person.
There are a couple of features I would love to see that I think would reduce the number of clicks people need. One feature would be the presence of a user-created list of common gifts to choose among, with the option to automatically save a new gift to the previously created gifts on that list. That auto-save option could be a toggle switch that is either on or off all the time. That way someone doesn't have to keep typing gift card, or ice cream cake, or American Cancer Society donation, etc.
Another feature that would be super helpful is if an event's master list of gifts from one store would sort alphabetically by GIFT. In addition, it should combine identical gifts to show the entire quantity a user needs to purchase - we'll be in the right place to get them all at once, since that is the list we're using.
Love this app! Helps me stay on budget and keep track of what I still need. It would be far more helpful though, to have all my stores with gift "needs" and/or "ideas" in one view instead of every single store cluttering up my view forcing me to scroll to find which ones I actually need to see. Also would love if "ideas" were connected to stores because at Christmas that means I need to stop there to see if my idea pans out. Basically I want the stores listed concisely so I can easily view where I need to stop.
'Waiting' on iPhone 6; working fine on iPhone 5
So I have an older iPhone 5 that I keep around to use like an iPod Touch at home, and luckily I have no problem accessing the app on that (and I set up iCloud sync so I have correct data both places), but yeah, out of the blue my mGifts icon is greyed out on my 6 and refuses to open.
Otherwise the app is really cool, and I can see a lot of potential for my future use, but that's a pretty big issue. I'm glad it was a Starbucks freebie for me.
