No More Notebooks – Social Wishlisting

By David in Startups

No More Notebooks is an online wishlist website with a social aspect. Twenty year old Luke Harrison, the owner of No More Notebooks is currently in his final year of studying New Media at the University of Leeds, UK. He built the entire website from the ground up himself, which means low to no development costs!

The App

You start off by adding a the plugin they provide you with to your browser. This gives you the ability to add items to your wishlist from the item page you’re browsing (amazon, etc) . Since this method isn’t quite 100% full proof, there’s also the ability to add in items manually.

You’re also not limited to having just one wishlist. You can have wishlists for different categories such as “Books I want for my birthday” or “Things that make me giggle”.

The second part of No More Notebooks is the social aspect. You can view other members wishlists, add them as a friend and comment on their “notepad”.

Another nice feature is that they have a built in price comparison system (kelkoo.co.uk) to help members find the best deals available. Two other notable features are the ability to subscribe to other users wishlists via RSS feeds, and the option to take another user’s wishlist and use it as your own.

Over the next couple of months there will be more features added, and the existing features will continue to be perfected. I think integrating No More Notebooks into existing social networking sites could be extremely beneficial for them. This looks like a promising young startup, and I’ll be curious to see how everything pans out.
