GRANT MY WISH IN THE NEWS

THE GUARDIAN

Fed up with disappointing presents? Grant My Wish is an app that wants to help, compiling gift lists for birthdays, Christmas and other occasions.

T3

As the festive season approaches it's always nice to have your faith restored in good old British realism where cynicism rules the roost with a Wishlist that surprises and delights.

THE SUN

You pick the gift from dozens on offer, including stuff like bungee jumps, paintball tanks, short breaks away, spa days, Ferrari racing and theatre tickets. And best of all it won't cost you a penny as your mates will be paying. It's like a one-man wedding list.

THE I

Remembering the dates of important family events has long been a struggle for men and more than one in 10 couldn't tell you their own mother's birthday, says a new survey. Research by the people behind the Grant My Wish Smartphone app found that a further 6 per cent of respondents did not know their partner's date of birth.

DAILY STAR

Most Brits would choose £1m cash if they were granted just one wish. The next most wanted is an iPad 2 followed by world peace, according to a survey of 1,209 shoppers by Grant My Wish Smartphone App.

Grant My Wish, the new wish granting app for the iPhone, has been re-launched with brand new updates. The first full version was released just before Christmas and we are proud to say that it was a tremendous success. The app allows users to create a Wish List which lets their friends and loved ones know which gifts they want by inviting them to join. The members of the Wish List can then share the cost of the gift, which means that price is no longer an obstacle.

November 2011: GRANT MY WISH TO LAUNCH WEB VERSION

After the success of the Grant My Wish app for the iPhone, we are proud to announce that the software has nearly arrived at the next stage of its journey. Considering our goal was to reach the largest customer base possible, and following a great deal of interest from online retailers, it was only logical to make the wish granting and cost-sharing technology available online.

Now Grant My Wish users can create their Wish Lists, and browse those of their friends', online. No longer is the technology limited to tech-savvy users who habitually make their purchases via their smart-phones. By allowing the user to sign up using their email address as well as via their Facebook account, and by allowing them to make their purchases in the comfort of their own home and not just on the go, Grant My Wish has become a more inclusive software that can be used by everyone from smartphone designers to their grandmothers.
