I read about a pretty cool new wedding registry iPhone app that I thought I’d share with you. Instead of registering at just a few stores for your shower or wedding gifts, the new Wedding Registry App lets you create a registry list by scanning the barcode of any item in any store using your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad2. This allows your family and friends to buy the gifts from any store they want.
Once you download the free app from the iTunes App Store to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad2 and register for a free account, you can start compiling your list. When the registry is complete, tell your family and friends to join your group account in order to see your list. Items get organized into categories like cookware, tabletop, etc. and include pictures, comments and personalization by you. When they select a gift, the registry gets updated immediately. It’s that simple.
Another reason I like the new Wedding Registry App is that it allows your family and friends to make purchases at stores where they have a credit card, rewards points or where a registry item might be on sale.
If you’re using the app, let us know how you like it.
