How Giftster works

With Giftster you become part of a small social network connecting family and close friends around gift giving occasions.

If this is your first time using Giftster, you won't have any family or friends connected yet.

Once you connect with a group, each family member can update their own wish lists and view and reserve gifts on each other’s lists.

-- Everyone in your family can connect to you with this Android App - we built a version of Giftster that runs on just about every device.

-- Giftster instantly synchronizes changes to all devices and your account at

-- Requires a network data connection or wifi to operate.

This is release 2.02 of the Android App; please let us know if something isn't working the way it should at or call 612-216-5112.

Come to think of it, even Aunt Claire gets stumped on gift ideas once in awhile. Enjoy the delight that comes from giving and getting gifts that matter most!

    Really hoped the All I Want app would work because it syncs easily with Facebook but this was a nice private option that again does not sync. Had my husband download all and request to join my group. Notifications are not part of the program, his request appeared in my news feed but there is no way to accept it. Can't see his list either because can't see unless in group or profile is public view.

    Worked fine until recently. Whenever I open it I get an application error and the app shuts down. The fix is to uninstall the app and then put it back on... which works only until you close the app again. Then the cycle repeats.

    Excellent app replacement for " the things I want". Shame it took 2 years of searching to find it, doesn't appear on Play store when searching Christmas list. One note, on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10" the buttons at the bottom appear on left of screen but hyperlinks are actually in the middle.

    Can't add item to child list on the app or see the pictures you have uploaded for the gifts.

    Would be better if it used the device theme. Looks awful. Like a badly designed website.
