The easy and fun way to do your name drawings for gift exchanges. Participants may be selected from contacts or entered manually. Participants may be selected to notify by email or text. The text option even works with wifi only devices (iPad or iPod Touch) because it uses the various carriers email to SMS gateways for sending. Notification messages may be customized. The person running the app does not need to see the names drawn.
You may group your participants so that they will not draw a name of someone in the same group. This is often used for spouses. The app also maintains exchange history and will prevent participants from drawing the same name as the previous drawing.
Each participant may be designated as "Gives and receives a gift in shared exchange", "Gives and receives in shared exchange, also may give to receive only participant(s)", "Does not receive gift, may give to receive only participant(s)", or "Does not give gift, receive only. For example, child". The results can be printed to an Airprint printer for each participant without email, or who want a printed copy. History display shows the name drawn and gift given for each person for previous drawings.
