This update has a ton of little enhancements and fixes to make the app even better, including the ability to have a big checkmark to mark shopping for a person as complete (while leaving un-purchased gifts for that person unchecked). For those of you with 3D Touch, you'll now be able to peek and pop on the main lists and quickly launch into a part of the app right from the icon.

The Christmas List Reviews
Easy to use
This will be my 4th year using this app. And each year I appreciated more and more how it simplified my Christmas planning/shopping, because I do my shopping, my Dad & sister-in-law's shopping for my children, plus shop for three birthdays. I was able to easily plan & organize my holiday shopping. It also helped me keep track of my spending. Now I can easily plan my budget for next year. I was able to keep everything in one handy place that was easy to use. Much better than my old paper holiday planner. The bonus was my husband wasn't able to figure out my pass code to sneak a peek. I'd highly recommend! My only disappointment is that last year I switched from an iPhone to a droid and can't download the app. So again this year I'll carry both my droid and old iPhone just so I have this app. (Since my original review, I love this app so much that when it was time to update my phone, I went back to an iPhone mainly so I can download this app ~ 4/15/16).
Easy and organized
Great Christmas app! It's easy to use and helps keep you organized. Great to keep a Christmas wish/idea list year round too!
Coolest app ever!!

First time I really got a handle on how much I was spending and on who- easy to organize and use.
Very visual which makes it easy to check on your progress. Be careful when archiving your previous year. I lost all my history but other than that highly recommended this for busy people that need to streamline
Christmas Life Saver!
This app keeps you organized and focused in a very hectic time of year. I use to forget presents I'd purchased earlier in the year but not anymore! I love that you can archive Christmas lists so you can go back and see what you gifted previous year(s).

I usually don't review apps, but I really like this app so far. It's simple to use and has lots of great features.
Keeps me organized
I like this app because I've used it for a couple years now and I'm used to it. But I think certain features need to be improved. It should be easier to go from "purchased" to "wrapped", for example. But I still really find it useful.
I've never been so ready for Xmas!

I love this app! Well designed and easy to stay organized with my holiday gift giving. This is the first year where I had everything ordered, purchased, wrapped and shipped without the mad last minute rush. It definitely made my holidays more relaxed and enjoyable. Thank you!
Best in category but overcomplicated
It is the best gift list app however would benefit greatly from 2 UX improvements:
1. Home screen needs a button to quick-add a gift, instead of having to start from recipient. From within a quick-add screen, user has option to add/create recipient or can assign one later.
2. Editing a gift. How many users need that giant area for a small photo thumbnail? Let's reduce that space, move it to the top, then use the rest of the screen for a big, easy, beautiful form instead.
While editing values, text controls do not need their own screen. Keep the form visible while keyboard(s) are open.
Gift status/priority/recipients should be fields within the same form.
User should be able to focus next form field via keyboard button ("next", arrow, caret, etc). "Done" remains in top-right of nav bar.
