Help you to organize a Kris Kringle event quickly using this app. It creates a name list of people participating in a Kris Kringle (a.k.a. Secret Santa) and it works out who is buying gift for whom.
Quick and simple. You input the names and the app automatically selects who is buying gift for whom randomly. This also makes it a very fair process. No need to draw names from a hat.
• Quick entry of participant’s names. You can enter their full name, or just their first name, or even a nickname.
• Pick names directly from your address book.
• Draw names randomly. This determines who should buy gift for whom. A quick and fair process. One click will do the trick. Alternatively, you can shake the device.
•Full record of who is buying gift for whom. You can send this list to yourself or someone else.
•Inform each participant. You can email or SMS each participant directly to let him or her know whom he or she is buying the gift for. You can create a customised template that for these emails, saving you lots of typing.
•Simply data entry. The app automatically lookups the person’s email address from your Address Book. (This feature works best if the participant’s full name is entered.)
•Add email address and mobile number. This is useful in situation where the person is not in your address book and you may not want to put them there.
•Hidden mode. This hide the name of the recipient on the screen.
- fixes a minor bug
- add ability to hide the recipient name
- easier to update the name of participant
- ability to add email and mobile (useful in situation where the person is not in the address book)
Ratings and Reviews
Good, would change one thing
This app worked extremely well for our exchange. I could make a new list as many times as I wanted to, which was helpful. However, the one thing I would change about this app would be the ability to manually edit one or two of the pairs. When you need to change who is buying for who on just one or two people, the ability to change it within the app would have been marvelous. I solved this problem easily by emailing the list to myself and changing it there, but if I was able to see those changes on the master list within the app, it would make this a five star review.
We have a rule that you can't pull someone in your own family so there is another layer of complexity that should be added to make this perfect. You should be able to make groups and restrict the randomness to include only people outside your group.
This app is perfect for random shuffle but that added layer would be this the best.
Back swiping to delete sounds great. Happy it worked for some. My app download will not perform this function in Krinkle List or Participant list. I'm using iPhone 4S. Any suggestions?
Other than that its a great app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
