Fromto does more than other wish list apps.
The app lets you add and share wishes with text, photos, barcodes or a URL for birthdays, Christmas, baptisms, weddings, etc. But more importantly, it helps friends and family coordinate who buys what to avoid double purchases.
It’s FREE and always will be.
Why we made Fromto
Shouldn’t there be an app that makes it easy to distribute wish lists and help gift shoppers avoid duplicate purchases? We believe so!
What Fromto looks like
Simple and efficient to enter and share your wishes
Adapts display to each user to support your role as recipient or gift shopper
Enter details about the wish, but remember not to set recipient until last. After this the wish is locked, as it indicates the wish is ‘ready’.
Other users can mark who wants to buy the gift, and when it was purchased
The app adapts the list display to the each user, so the recipients do not see this information
Attention: It’s important you set To, otherwise you get to see who is buying things for you which would ruin the surprise!
The recipient cannot change the wish after setting To. This prevents cheating as the recepient could otherwise just remove To to see who is buying what 🙂
Easy and fast to add wishes
