If you hate holiday shopping as much as I do, you need to give Amazon’s new app a try. It’s called Surprise! and it takes all of the hassle out of finding gifts, wrapping them and delivering them to your friends and family members. With Surprise!, you can simply put together a cute e-card, attach an Amazon.com Gift Card and leave the heavy lifting to the recipient.
The most convenient feature of the app is the Occasion Timeline, allowing users to add all of their friends and family from Facebook as well as the calendar and contacts of the mobile device. You’ll never forget a birthday again.
A full list of the app’s features follows below.
With Surprise! by Amazon, you can:
- Send a quick e-card or personalize it with just the right sentiment and customize it with a photo, video, audio greeting, personal message, or handwritten signature
- Add an Amazon.com Gift Card
- Select an animated “reveal” to wrap your Surprise
- Build an Occasion Timeline by adding Friends & Family from Facebook, your device’s calendar and contacts.
- Automatically sync occasions with Amazon’s Friends & Family Gifting program
Surprise! is available now as a free download on the iOS App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore. You can download the app from each platform via the source links below.
