Take the guesswork out of gift giving with Gift Wizard for Android [Hands On Video]

When Sock Monkey Solutions asked me to try Gift Wizard, I didn’t think much of it, but then my wife asked me for ideas on a gift she wanted to buy a friend. So I figured I would give it a shot. It basically asked me a series of questions like the person’s sex, age, what the occasion is and their interests. This didn’t take more than a minute or two. After that was done, it gave us about 10 or so gift ideas. I have to admit we actually used one of them.

My initial thoughts before I used the app were what could this tell me that I don’t already know? Well to be honest, the gift ideas weren’t necessarily ground-breaking, but sometimes we don’t always think of the obvious. I might have eventually came up with the idea that we eventually used, which was a gift basket of wine, but Gift Wizard made things easier to focus on the obvious. The initial questions could have been little more broad, but they are simple and quick. Gift Wizard costs .99 cents and I would say after one gift idea, it’s already paid for itself.

    Got this or my galaxy S. Really quite good. Got me out of jail for valentines. Particularly good for finding gifts for people you don’t normally buy for.
