The Gifting Whisperer is my personal blog that taps into some of favorite things—shopping, parties, people who are special to me and gift-giving. Need a unique gift idea? I may have a gift list for you… Don’t see what you’re looking for? Suggest a list giftingwhisperer at gmail dot-com.
In June of 2012 the Conde Nast incubator, iPG, went to E3 to preview a new game especially for young women and girls called Fashion Hazard.
We received some great press from AOL Games and Adweek at E3, and when we launched in August of 2012 on iOS, the WSJ wrote this about us… (OK, and I also have to share this link from Perez Hilton’s Coco Perez too).
As part of a New Year’s Resolution, I started a personal blog - Notes to Heaven, which has since become Gifting Whisperer… see more above.
Just in time for Christmas 2011, our amazing incubator launched Santa’s Hideout - a modern twist on the timeless tradition of making lists for Santa that can be shared (and shopped) with family and friends. Santa’s Hideout strives to take the guess work out of shopping for everyone and make it less hassle for mom by creating a safe, parent-controlled, magical experience for all consumer contingencies of holiday gifting.
Safe for Kids, Easy for Moms, Convenient for Friends, Magical for Everyone. We were very psyched when Harvard’s Nieman Journalism Lab wrote this about us in December of 2011. See other press mentions here and here.
In June of 2011, my team launched Idea Flight. Idea Flight lets one person (the Pilot) use their iPad to control a presentation to an audience (their Passengers) to other iPads via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. This does not require additional cameras, equipment, dongles, connectors or wires. The transfer happens so the Pilot has complete control over whether or not the Passengers have access to a hard copy. As a Pilot, one swipes through their presentation at their speed and can lock and unlock the content for Passenger to browse at their will. Files can be accessed via Dropbox, iTunes file sharing and email. Later this summer, we updated Idea Flight and, due to demand from the education community, released a new version of Idea Flight for educators called Idea Flight Enterprise.
Idea Flight (original) is free to download, free to Passengers, and has a paid upgrade in the app for Pilots.
Idea Flight Enterprise is a paid download and includes the current version of Idea Flight (original), the current in-app purchase (Pilot) and includes any future updates and in-app purchases.
Gourmet Live was announced during the summer of 2010, as an “entirely new digital content product”. When launched to consumers in September of the same year for iPad, Gourmet Live was the first high quality content product to use social game play and virtual good-like engagement.
