Here are two new things you can do on Delver:

Friend’s Birthday – Remind me Later

Delver reminds you whenever one of your friends have a birthday soon, so you have enough time to check out their wish list and buy them a little something.

Now – you can ask Delver to remind you again a bit later:

iPhone App – Product Available in Store Near You

When looking at a product using the Delver iPhone App – you are now notified if the product is available from a nearby store. You can see store information like opening hours and locate the store on a map:

Yesterday we’ve added some new features to Delver.com and the Delver iPhone app:

Collecting more free-form opinions from users

When browsing your friends’ activity on Delver, it’s fun to be able to see some explanations about why they rated a particular product the way they did or why they added some product to a particular catalog.

Delver will ask user to enter some optional text when performing specific actions, for example:

Write a comment when adding to catalog

Reminder to enter catalog description for catalogs with more than 5 items
