App Guide

FlikGift for iPhone is flying the banner as Australia’s first social gifting app, whereby users can send digital gift cards from retail and online brands to their Facebook friends and family.

The free app displays a list of upcoming events (birthdays, engagement parties, etc) of all your Facebook contacts. To get started select the person you want to send a gift to, choose a gift card from a range of retailers, add a personal note, confirm a delivery date and make payment.

FlikGift then delivers the voucher to the recipient – on the date you choose in previous steps – via Facebook or email. Note: All gift cards can be used to make purchases in bricks-and-mortar stores or online.

The app  features a ‘group buy’ option, allowing fellow users to get together and chip in to give a more valuable gift to your mutual friend. Every person that puts money towards the voucher can each write a personal message that gets delivered to the recipient along with the present.

FlikGift provides reminders of friends’ birthdays and other upcoming occasions, and also offers expiry notifications and location alerts to card holders to avoid losing or forgetting about their voucher.
