Great app and website

Elfster is perfect for secret santa, especially in times on COVID when you can’t meet up to draw names from a hat. The only problem I’ve found with the app is that when I add items from another app using the share link the items says they’ve been added, but then when I open the elfster app and look at my wishlist the items aren’t there. It could just be taking a while for the list to update, but you would think after one day it would show on the list. Other that that glitch I really enjoy the app and the interface is really user friendly.

Wowee! Thanks for the 5-star rating! 🌟 It makes our spirits bright! If you could let us know which apps you're using the share link in without updates to your wishlist, our techie elves will be happy to take a look at that. Please feel free to email the workshop at help@elfster.com.

Wish List glitchy if chrome is your default

Update: I figured out the issue is that the iPhone default browser must be set to safari. I had set mine to chrome, and this was causing the issue. I’ve updated my rating to reflect this.

I have used elfster for years and have loved it! For some reason this year the wish list portion keeps crashing on my iPhone. It won’t allow me to open the link to view/buy. Sometimes after being idle it will say there’s a problem with my log-in, but not allow me to click to enter log-in info. Force close doesn’t help, and I have to uninstall and re-install. Please fix these new glitches! Good news is web interface works just fine.

Hi there! Our techie elves have made an update so that Chrome browsers will open the links. Happy Gifting!

This game is a really great game. It allows me to connect with my family and exchange gifts with each other. There is one elf leader that draws names. Everybody (including the elf leader) gets people (out of the people your doing it with) that they have to buy a gift for off of their wish list. Example: I buy a gift for someone else and they don’t know it’s me. Someone is also buying a gift for me but I don’t know who they are. At the date that the elf leader put it to to exchange gifts everyone says who they were buying gifts for and we enjoy our gifts while eating delicious food.
