Description:

Giftory helps keep track of gift giving and receiving for multiple people, on multiple occasions, over a period of years. With it you can create entries for gifts exchanged between two people, and sort and display the lists of gifts in a variety of ways. It is perfect for managing holiday buying for multiple children and for tracking a history of what gifts have been bought over the years and how much money was spent in past years.

Giftory can also help with setting and keeping detailed budgets for any gift-giving occasion. It allows you to set up a budget for any occasion, and set individual spending limits for how much you will spend on someone, and even how much others are allowed to spend, such as the case where you set a limit for how much you will spend on each of your children and how much they get to spend on each other and on their parents.

Giftory makes shopping from home easier by integrating with online shopping services, giving you the ability to search for gifts through those services and buy them securely through your chosen web browser.

Giftory is also useful to members of the family who will do more receiving then giving. It supports building wish lists that any member of the household can create and post to their account on your Mac, so that other members of the family can access it from their own accounts.

If your gift giving entails more than a short list of gifts you can write on a sticky note, Giftory can help you.

If you're shopping on a budget, Giftory can help you.

If you don't want to give the same gift twice but have a bad memory for what you've given to whom, Giftory can help you.

If you have multiple children and it's important to you to buy them the same number of gifts and/or spend the same amount of money on each of them, Giftory can help you.

*Note: with Apple's discontinuation of the MobileMe service, the ability to publish wish lists online and retrieve them from an iPhone no longer exists. The old iPhone Giftory Wish List Reader app is now inoperable. In the future this functionality will return in a new form.

Does what I need it to - This is one of those programs with an interface that you have to adapt to instead of it allowing you to customize it the way you want it to work, but that's not a problem for me. I don't mind learning how to use software. I use it to track Christmas purchases for my kids and my parents, and it works great for that. I can go back for years and see what I've bought and how much I've spent each year. But more importantly, having three kids and starting my shopping in August, it helps me keep track of what I've bought, who I originally bought it for, switch gifts between kids, and end up spending about the same amount for each kid and buying about the same number of gifts for each kid. I have my kids use it to create their gift wish lists, and since we have a family MobileMe account, the program lets them put their lists online and I use my iPhone to have their lists with me when I'm out shopping. I could see where power users would want some more features, like detailed reports and historical charts, but I'm not a power user so I don't miss not having those features.

Frustrating! - I have entered ALL my Christmas and Valentine's gifts into this program three times. Finally, the fourth time, i figured out how to save it. But then, when I re-opened the software, epecting to see all my information, it came up blankand i had to figure out how to find/open all the information I had just entered! I wish the information was just there when the program opened rather than having to open a fi;e to view everything. Also, there is no way to see all the gifts you purhased for one holiday, so no way to get a total budget, only a budget by person. Example: If I want to see all the gifts I purchased for Christmas and how much it all cost, I have to open each individual, rather than just opening "Christmas 2010". And if I want to see all the gifts I have given to one person, to make sure I don't duplicate any gifts, I have to go through each different holiday/event. So if I wanted to see if I had given Aunt X the justin beiber cd, I have to go through all her information rather than just have one major list somewhere. This is very disappointing and had I had a free trial I would never have purchased it. It would be eaier to use an excel spreadsheet and be able to view it all at once. Save your money and wait for another program or this one to be improved. Also, the "instructions" provided are very basic and don't even cover saving or where to find your information once you have. This program doesn't do anything you can't do on your own.

Terrible - I have no idea how this app got past the quality review folks at apple. The layout is awful, and the app has deep functionality problems. Thank goodness I only played with it for 15 mintues before the app randomly deleted all my data. Do not buy this app.

How do I save my data? - I am so frustrated!!! I have entered my data several times but can not save it. I receive a message that the year is too large…what does this mean? When I think I have saved it and go to open the App my data is not there. How do I save my data?
