nullAre you having trouble finding the perfect gift? There's an app that could help you.

Spoil Me! is a free app that allows you to send your wish list to your friends and family on Facebook from your iPhone. It also offers other suggestions for the user based on what items are on the wish list. The app will let friends know they've been spoiled, but won't tell them by who.

Spoli Me! was launched by co-founder of Iterative Ideas Joseph Peters, who is also a 2009 RIT alumnus.

“The idea came to me because I’ve always struggled with what to buy my girlfriend for her birthday, Christmas or our anniversary,” said Peters.

According to Peters, Spoil Me! was launched in July with the help of his partners Marc-Andre Dumas, co-founder and developer, and Hannah Peckham, designer. The team plans to expand the service to include an Android version over the next few months.

The latest version of Spoil Me! was launched Dec. 5 with a stream that contains friends' activities and allows the user to "like" and comment on any listed items within the app.
