[prMac.com] Pfaeffikon, Switzerland - Power App GmbH today is pleased to introduce Gift 1.0 for iOS, their free app that offers users gift ideas when buying presents for friends and relatives who "already have everything." Gift features a list of more than 100 gift ideas, from necessities to extravagances, at a wide variety of prices. The list may be displayed by Name, Price, or Group, and choosing any item opens a description and pricing. Though the user may not find the ideal gift listed, the process of searching through the myriad of products and services contained in the app is more than likely to help them hit upon the perfect present for that "hard to buy for" person.
Gift is more than a list of goods and services that make good presents. The app offers suggestions meant to spark creative thinking. As such, the list contains items that bring to mind a mood, an emotional response, based on which the user can combine their personal knowledge of the recipient to discover a gift idea they would have otherwise never considered. So while that uncle may not need the Electric Razor preferred by the app, he might appreciate an electric massager. And though that aunt may see an offer to personally provide Driving Lessons as more of an insult than a gift, she might find computer lessons exactly what she needs.
Nearly all the gift ideas in the app are generic, that is, they do not mention a specific brand. However there are some exceptions, including: A Ride in a Ferrari, A Louis Vuitton Bag, A Flight in a MIG31, an iPad, and a Burberry Scarf. Among the most creative suggestions are: The Experience of Zero Gravity, Swimming with Dolphins, A Segway Tour, A Personal Horoscope, A Hot Stone Massage, and an Erotic Photo Shoot.
