If you have Near set to auto-update then I believe it should also auto-upload your gifts, as they are sent when you update your location.
However some games like TOM Blitz only actually share a gift if you actually specifically tell it to. That is a PITA on that game because it doesn't make it clear at any point that for people to get crystals via Near you have to click Share on your daily scratch.
For weeks I was not sharing because there seemed no point spamming the Live Area with notifications that I just played Daily Scratch. I suspect most people have the same problem, they just aren't aware how to trigger the crystals gift for Near. Pretty much like every other function of Near really, overly confusing.
I'm surprised that NEAR doesn't tell you what you've uploaded. I'm fairly sure mine is set to auto update but I never get any feedback
I agree it does seem to be confusing and possibly even a poorly conceived idea
If you want to check exactly whatyou are sharing then go to the out and about radar on Near and press on your avatar in the middle. There is a list of recently played games and some have a present like icon next to the title. Press on these and it shows you what you are sharing regarding that game (eg; the current amount of crystals you are sharing in TOM Blitz).
I agree that Near is overly complicated and a very convaluted process. Lol @ 'High buzz rating on...' when there is just yourself playing it!?!
Plus does anyone else find and play demos you come across on Near that are not in the shop? It happened to me yesterday regarding the Everbody's Golf demo.

every day i do a near update.and every day i get the same old gifts,i always get the first 3 unit 13 hvt,which i did weeks ago,and the hustle king avis,my point is if ive already got these things why do i constantly get them again?all i want is some mont crystals,
I've found that using that map pin icon to keep the gift where it it (bear with me) and then it wont keep popping up when you update/search for new discoveries/gifts. When the item has expired just un-pin by pressing the map pin icon again and when you update then it/they should be lost and gone forever
For some reason when pinning TOM Blitz items I find apart from the last batch you had they all disappear regardless of being pinned. This is not a bad thing mind as this is what you want to happen unless you like collecting expired gifts...
Does anybody else use this method out of interest??
