It’s December 1st and that means holiday shopping is in full swing. There are many iPhone shopping apps in the App Store, but my hands-down favorite is Gift Plan by Glasshouse Apps. I started using Gift Plan last year and fell in love with it. This week, Glasshouse released version 2.4 and it’s a super update. Here are three reasons to use Gift Plan when shopping with your iPhone.
- Tight organization. I can tap any contact’s name and instantly see all of the ideas I’ve generated for him/her, sorted by occasion (birthday, anniversary, Christmas), as well as his/her preferences, important upcoming daters (with countdown) and purchase history.
- Simple, fast data entry. I often get gift ideas while I’m out with the eventual recipient. That means I must make a note quickly and covertly. Fortunately, Gift Plan only requires few taps. In fact, I can even just snap a photo if there isn’t time to type. I love that.
- The Occasions screen. I forget things. A lot. A whole lot. Gift Plan’s Occasions Screen overs an overview of every gift-giving occasion I created, complete with countdown. I love it.
There’s much more to this fantastic app, so go get it and shop with your iPhone this holiday.
