Wisher lets users know when they've passed an item from a loved one's wish list while in-store

Wisher makes shopping for holidays or birthdays one step easier. The application will notify a user's devices when they pass by products friends have placed on their wish lists.

Users on Wisher create wish lists, which friends are able to view. The lists are not dissimilar to those you'll see on Amazon at this stage. What makes Wisher unique is that the app will ping users with an alert when they're in or near a store that carries an item on a friend's list. Once the user buys the item, he-she makes a note in Wisher that lets other friends—but not the user who wanted the item—know that particular gift has been purchased.
