New Update to the iWishfor Site! Sharing, Individual Pages and Security

As we rush towards the holiday season, we are continuing to pack new and incredible features into the new iWishfor website!

In our latest newsletter, we want to share some of the new things happening with the iWishfor website, including the ability to see your own list of gift ideas, share your gift list with others. We also wanted to share some information on upcoming privacy features!

Check out the new features below!

View Your Gift List Online!

New to the iWishfor site is the ability to log into your own page of gift ideas. Before this, you could only view the landing page and the Trending Ideas page.

Now, logging into the website will take you to your own individual page with all your gift ideas in one place!

To log into your iWishfor page, simply go to and click on the "Sign In" button located in the upper right corner of the page.

Share Your Gift List!

One of the things we love about the iWishfor app is the ability to easily share your gift ideas with your friends and family. We have now brought that ease of sharing to your iWishfor page online!

Once you have logged into your iWishfor page, you will see an area under your photo labeled, "Share List".

Right now, you can share your list to Facebook, to your twitter feed or by emailing the link to your page to anyone! Even if some of your loved ones don't use iWishfor, they can still view your list of gift ideas. We will be adding other ways of sharing in the future.

Changing Your Profile!

In the next few months, we will be adding some security features to allow you to set how your information is viewed. In the meantime, there are a couple of things you can do keep your profile more secure.

Simply launch the app and go into the profile setting, by clicking on the "Edit Profile" and selecting "Edit Profile" under the Account area. You can set your date of birth in this section and update your profile. Any users or parents with children under a certain age can have their accounts and gift ideas stay private by changing the birth date in this area of the app. This will not affect your ability to share your gift ideas with others, if you choose to.

You can also change your profile picture to something that is not personally identifiable. Often, users will choose something that reflects an interest or hobby, a favorite place or other non-identifiable image.

Thank You!

We want to thank all our users who have downloaded and used the iWishfor app! It has been an incredible experience and we thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to perfect and polish iWishfor.

From it's beginnings as an idea in our mind to where we are now, a beautiful app and website, we are so honoured that you have continued to use the app. And we promise, there's a lot more to come!
