New app’s a unique gift

Stirling Times - - Street Watch -

A NEW gift reg­istry mo­bile app de­vised by a Scar­bor­ough res­i­dent aims to help users re­duce the num­ber of un­wanted gifts go­ing to land­fill.

Rosal Mullins came up with the idea for Guess­menot af­ter spend­ing time search­ing for un­ap­pre­ci­ated or un­wanted gifts.

“At Christ­mas time, you’re of­ten buy­ing a lot on a bud­get, some­one opens your gift and be­fore you know it the next gift is in mo­tion and they al­most have in­stan­ta­neously for­got­ten what you gave them,” she said.

“The app al­lows users to cre­ate gift wish­lists for an event, adding gifts from their cam­era roll or a web­site and share th­ese wish­lists with friends and fam­ily.”

Ms Mullins brought the idea to app devel­oper El­iz­a­beth Miguet at West Perth web de­vel­op­ment com­pany Eduka.

Ms Miguet said bring­ing the idea to life was a chal­lenge to be­gin with. “The re­sult was a sim­ple user in­ter­face that al­lows users to stay on top of their gift buy­ing game with little stress in­volved,” she said.
