Just in time for the holiday shopping season, we have a small (free!) gift for you. One of our very talented University of Washington interns, Madeline Clarke, created a DIY gift list organizer using our platform. We liked it and decided to White Label the app (in the Google Play Store) so that anyone can use it to manage their gift giving.
Why a gift list organizer app?
We were brainstorming the useful apps that anyone can create to make their lives (business or personal) easier. The gift giving list app was one of our top two contenders (we’re working on the other one for next quarter) and since the holiday season is right around the corner, the DIY Gift List Organizer won!
Here’s what I love about this app:
- I can access it from my phone (or tablet or browser). Since it’s on my phone, the app travels with me—when I see a possible gift that someone would like, I digitally note the information. No more hunting for a pen and piece of paper!
- It keeps a running gift list. Use the app to keep a running list of things that your friends and family might like. Then, when the occasion arises, you’ve already done the hard work of finding that perfect gift.
- It “remembers” the gifts I’ve given. Have you ever gifted someone the same thing for a different event? Use this organizer to record who you gave a gift to, when you bought and sent the gift, and the holiday or occasion it was for. End accidental repeat gifting!
There’s lots of other great things about the app—like seeing store locations, storing photos of gift ideas, and including addresses of the recipients for fast shipping—so go to the Google Play Store and check it out for yourself.
How did Madeline create the app?
Now that’s a great question. Madeline produced a step-by-step walkthrough of how she created the app so that you can build one yourself. At the end of major steps, she’s thoughtfully provided a link to an app version so that if you run into problems, you can always refresh the version and continue the walkthrough. And when you install the app, you can copy her app, add any features that you might like (the DIY part) and deploy it. You’ve just created your own gift list organizer!
Why is this app the gift that keeps on giving?
That’s an easy question: from now on, this app will keep all your gift giving organized! No more excel spreadsheets, paper lists or photos (unorganized) of gift you gave to “someone.” Happy holidays everyone!
