Download Shari’s Berries for iOS to share delicious gifts with those you love.
I’m horrible at sending gifts or cards for special occasions. Honestly, I’m lucky if I remember to even wish a Happy Birthday to friends and family unless they’re on Facebook (because I get a reminder). Luckily, there are apps to help with this sort of conundrum. One such app is Shari’s Berries.
Modeled after the popular gift-giving service, Shari’s Berries for iOS is an online ordering service of fine treats and gifts. It has a stunning, but simplistic interface with high-quality pictures that look like you could eat off the screen. With just a few simple clicks, you can order your special someone, family and friends a delicious treat to celebrate that special occasion.
The app, as I mentioned, is simplistic in nature. When it first starts up, the user is met with a scrolling screen displaying featured gifts. There is a filter that allows users to see All Gifts or choose from a variety of categories including Romantic, Birthday, Thankful and Thoughful. There is also a category for upcoming special holidays. For example, right now Mother’s Day is highlighted as an additional category. When a category is selected, the gifts are filtered to those most popular or fitting to the category.
Once you make your selection, you tap on the picture to read additional information. If you decide that’s what you want to order, you Select This Gift and are taken to a login screen. You can either create a Shari’s Berries account, or connect to your Facebook account. I actually opted for the latter because it also imports events like birthday notifications from Facebook. If you have contacts already imported, you can select one or enter new information.
Then, you are given the option to write a greeting card to accompany the gift. There is one that is pre-written, but you have the option of editing it. The next step is actually placing the order and adding payment information. You can enter your credit card by keystroke or by scanning your card with the device camera. The process is very simple and it only takes a few minutes to complete.
Some of the other features include Order History, Upcoming Events, Address Book, the ability to Invite Friends and the ability to enter promo codes from Radio/TV Promos.
Shari’s Berries for iOS is a wonderful, free addition to any iOS device. With the ‘go-go-go’ attitude that everyone has and the increasing electronic lifestyle that everyone seems to be adopting, this type of app is perfect for the electronic age.
