Why can’t I see any wishes of some of my friends or vice versa?

One explanation could be that the person has no (public) entries. Another explanation could be that you are not in the persons’ contact list with a mobile number or email known to the app. This is often the case when the app is installed on a tablet. To be able to see the list of your friend, you should ask him/her to add you to his/her contact list.
