Lost previous entries

I used this app for a number of years and loved it. With the new update, all of my previous entries disappeard. I used it to keep track of who gets what every year.
Now I have no idea what I usually buy/tip for clients. 😞

Terms of use policy too vague and long to understand

The old version of this app was great. I deleted it after the new terms of use because it contained so many vague references to things relating to privacy that I can’t know what it’s tracking, what it does with the information, and who it is shared with. I will not support apps that can’t tell me in simple language what they are collecting, and why.

Changed for the worse

This ‘new’ version makes it more difficult to track spending. For example, there is no subtotal for stocking stuffers, nor does the app subtract your budget for each individual as you go. I am constantly pulling a calculator out to do what this app used to do before it was ‘improved’.

Developer Response ,

You can sort the gifts by “Stocking Stuffer” in almost exactly the same way that they were sorted in the past, with stocking stuffers appearing first for each recipient. The screen is just in a different format now, but still has all of the same functionality. You can also set the overall budget for the occasion to calculate from the budgets of each recipient by tapping the “Set Budget” button on the Summary Tab and choosing the “Calculate” option, just as it has been in the past. On the Recipients Tab, you can still select a view that will show each recipient’s total or purchased amounts against their budget, just as in the past. No features have been removed from the app. If you email us at, we are happy to answer any questions or show you where any features may be located.
