Users can easily connect their Facebook accounts to the app and send gift cards to friends from more than 200 retailers.

Wrapp CEO Hjalmar Winbladh discussed his company’s achievement in a press release: “When we say Wrapp makes gift giving fun and easy, we’re not blowing smoke. Consumers love the convenience of being able to use their phone to give gift cards, and they especially like that the gift cards are stored in their phone, so they always have them in their pocket when they’re ready to buy something. As for retailers and brands, we believe we offer the most cost-effective brand-building service available as they increasingly transition marketing for a more mobile- and social-network-driven world.”

On July 3 Netflix Chief Executive Officer Reed Hastings posted on the company’s public Facebook page that Netflix “monthly viewing exceeded 1 billion hours for the first time ever in June,” according to the complaint filed yesterday in federal court in San Jose, California.
