Organize Your Christmas Shopping with New Gifts HD iPad App

Want to organize your Christmas shopping? Here's a review by AppScout of the new Gifts HD, a new iPad app.

"We know it may seem a little early to start thinking about your holiday shopping, but after the Halloween decorations have moved to the clearance aisle and the Christmas decorations have replaced them, early shoppers will start to formulate lists in their heads. Luckily, there's a new iPad app that can help you this year. Released on October 7 from Macspots, Gifts HD is a new iPad app created to help you track, budget, and compare prices for your holiday shopping. 

One of the app's most outstanding features is its ability to shop within the app while comparing products. You simply tap on a gift item that you have on our shopping list, and the app will launch a built-in browser and open Google Shopper to show you where you can find the product at its lowest cost. You can add an unlimited amount of people to your list, and assign multiple gifts and budgets for each person. 

It also features a multi-user function so that multiple members in your family can use the app with an individualized password-protected login. That way, you won't be able to see what's on the rest of your family member's lists. 

Gifts HD keeps a summary report which shows: the total amount spent per person, gifts purchased, gifts left to wrap, and the estimated budget and cost per person. It also has a built-in To-Do list and calculator. If you don't want to take your iPad shopping, you can send an e-mail summary of your gifts and your To-Do list to your phone or whoever else you want to share your lists with. 

The app costs $4.99 in the Apple App Store, and requires iOS 3.2 or later."
