[prMac.com] Inverurie, Aberdeenshire/Scotland - Zicron Software Limited has released Gift Box 1.0, their new shopping and gift organizer for iPhone and iPod Touch. Developed specifically to leverage the iPhone's unique capabilities and touch interface, Gift Box serves uniquely as a gift notebook, allowing shoppers to take a photo of any item, keep track of how much it cost, and what store it was in.
Featuring a natural user interface, Gift Box embraces a present, or "box" metaphor where each product idea is stored. This flexibility allows users to quickly add and organize items by group, such as by family, friends, or coworkers. Collect gift ideas all year round, keep a personal wish list of products and rate them, and even email gift ideas to friends and family, and more. Gift Box takes advantage of the users regional settings too, so there are no currency conversions necessary.

"I often see items in a shop that I want to remember. Most of the time it's ideas for birthdays, christmas, anniversary presents and sometimes it's even something I would like myself. For whatever reason you want to remember it, how much it cost, and what store it was in," said John S. Eddie, founder of UK based Zicron Software Limited. "I tend to take a picture of the item with my phone and include the price sticker in the photo if I can. Then I can refer to the photo to remind me of the item."
"At home, we have a box that we use to put spare gifts into," John continues. "When an occasion occurs we look through the box for anything appropriate. We often get ideas for presents just by looking through the box. So Gift Box is taking these two analogies and merging them to provide an app that allows you to record gift ideas and browse them later. The aim of the application is-as-always, simplicity, elegance, and ease of use."
* iPhone and iPod Touch with iPhone OS 3.0 or later
