What can you use the app for?

Knack Registry provides anxious couples with a centralized wedding gift registration option. The website includes an enormous collection of appealing items sold by small businesses, boutiques and artisans. The user can select their gift preferences from the list to add items for their home, honeymoon or whatever else they might need or want. The user is given additional flexibility with the option to add any item from any online store including those not found within the Knack network. Users can exchange gifts or opt for cash on gifts they decide they no longer want. Gift givers have options as well. Friends and family can purchase individual items online that the couple can choose to receive, exchange or switch for cash. Gift givers can also add a credit to the couple’s account that allows them to spend the funds on whatever the want.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Knack Registry was created when the founder discovered that many retailers in his hometown had closed up shop due to poor economic conditions. This made it very difficult to find fitting gifts and other items. Knack Registry was designed to help small businesses sell products while giving couples a way to encourage them and receive high quality presents from friends and family. The service hasn’t received much attention yet, but is available on some bridal networks such as Wedding Wire.

What are the differences to other apps?

Knack Registry stands out because it gives couples and gift givers many options. There are other, similar applications available but these sometimes force the user into specific retail corners. Knack Registry encourages users to choose from their small business and artisan network, however it does not force them to stay there. Users can add items from any online retailer. The application also gives gift givers a way to share a monetary gift with the couple if they prefer to do so.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Knack Registry has an organized design that is complemented by hints of blue and purple as well as vibrant images of unique items. The application is very user friendly and requires almost no effort to learn. Anyone can quickly set up a registry and begin adding items in a matter of minutes. Despite the website being focused on selling products, it stays relatively clutter-free.

How does the registration process work?

New couples can try Knack Registry by clicking the red “Sign Up Now” button found within the main border on the homepage. The next page asks for a first and last name, state, email address and password. A small blue button above the form is available for users who prefer to sign up with their Facebook profile. The user is automatically logged in after submitting the form.

What does it cost to use the application?

Knack Registry is available to all couples for free. There is no subscription fee and the user is not required to add any items to a registry or make any purchases. The only fee a user may have to pay is a transaction fee for funds withdrawn as cash. The user is charged a 5% fee each time they make a withdraw from their account. This fee is not applied to any other transaction.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Knack Registry is an appealing option for couples who are looking for a good online wedding registry. The application offers many options, including some that other similar applications have overlooked. Some may still complain that the service is too impersonal, but anyone who thinks that way is not likely to use an online registry anyway. Those who appreciate the convenience of the web can really love the feature and flexibility offered by Knack Registry.
