I've tried this app many times, but really fail to see what people see in it. It fails my basic use cases of even a grocery list, where I need to complete an item, have it hidden, then uncomplete it when it's needed again, easily.
But then again, Todoist also fails this. Perhaps these are great for one-time use and throw away items. I use AnyList, and would otherwise use Paperless on iOS (or now Ikiru) before either of those.
If you're a minimalistic approach lover then you should definitely check Wunderlist. It's doesn't eat much resources if you keep it open all the time. Lists of tasks, starring tasks is the best simple and productive way of tasks' prioritization. It also has a great feature of adding a task or searching for a task without going to the main window. Just use a keyboard shortcut for this.
- They've got a user-facing voting system that allows users to submit their product ideas, other users to up/downvote, and moderators to update on status. I haven't used it in a while (used it at my previous workplace) but it sounds like it has what you're looking for.
I love saving things for myself that I want to buy, but am not quite ready to purchase. It also makes birthdays and Christmas for my 7-year-old so much easier – I can share her wish list with family that is spread out from Coast to Coast.
Gift Hero really is an awesome site, and it's a fantastic company to work for! 🙌 Big ups and love to the Team ❤️
Being able to add gift ideas from outside Amazon is the best part. For example for this Xmas I have tickets to the Boston Symphony on a list for my Dad; a massage certificate (at a local place) for my Mom. The massage place doesn't really have a website so I couldn't use my browser plugin, but they have an option to manually add gifts into the app. I liked that feature.
The browser plugin works really well, I can add a gift to any of my lists while browsing. I typically add like crazy then sort through ideas in the app.
I was also recently looking to buy a boat for our family and kept track of options on Craigslist using Gift Hero.
- DreamList is private, family-friendly, and truly universal. It is not tied to a retailer, so you can add the lowest price items from anywhere (and link your other wish lists and registries). It lets you manage wish lists together with your spouse or team for Birthdays, Christmas and other Holidays, Baby Showers for little ones, etc. (very very handy for parents, charity gift drives, and disaster recovery teams). More importantly, you can add large items and dreams you are saving towards such as a big trip to Disney, or 529 plans, so on special occasions family can contribute small amounts to help little ones get there sooner.
