You’re in a store and can’t remember your brother’s shirt size or the name of the toy your niece has asked about for months. Get the answer in just seconds on your smart phone with the giftster app.

Your friend shows you the cool case they found for their iPad and you want the same one. While it’s fresh on your mind, in a few touches, you’ve added the idea to giftster and everyone in your family will know exactly which one you'll love.

Mobile giftster shares the beautiful design of giftster.com, but in a mobile sort of way.

The mobile app automatically updates itself with all the list information from the web. In real time.

It just works.

Use the website or the app to invite your friends and family, set up wish lists and remove the guesswork and stress of giving the perfect gift.

With the giftster app on your Apple iPhone, iTouch or iPad, simply log in with the same user name and password and your family and their wish lists and events will all be there! If you first created your account from the App, you also have the same account and access to your lists at giftster.com
