You know those times that occur frequently when you need to send someone a gift and only know a string of contactable information, like a phone number for example and no address? ParcelGenie (opens in new tab) is the Windows Phone 7 app which only requires a mobile number from your locally stored contacts list. The lucky recipient would then receive a text (when you've chosen and paid for the gift) where they would input their address for dispatch. Neat, eh?
What's more is that you can even post the gift alerts to the Facebook wall of the recipient if you're into the whole social networking business. ParcelGenie are currently offering 50% off gifts when customers use the coupon code: AZKE2K. Be sure to head on over to the Marketplace and download this free app (Zune link (opens in new tab)) to spread your kindness. Perfect timing with Father's Day just around the corner.
Oh yeah it's good to see an app that's available for WP7, but iOS and Android are "coming soon". We like that, we like that a lot.
