The new iPhone and Android app, “Treater” makes it easier than ever to send a little gift of love or appreciation to a friend or coworker. With Treater, you can send various treats to friends, loved ones and co-workers with a few taps on the screen of your mobile device.
Similar to Facebook Gifts, Treater allows you to send your intended recipient an impressive variety of treats, such as coffee, cocktails, chocolates, facials, manicures, or new clothing. You can access your friends by signing on to Facebook and choosing from any of your Facebook friends. Once you choose a recipient, you can browse available treats by category such as “Drinks on Me,” “Caffeine Fix,” “Moment of Zen,” “Good Grub,” and “Night Out.”
