Never miss a birthday again! This application was created because my previous phone alerted me of upcoming birthdays so I was used to not thinking about it. Needless to say, I missed a friends birthday and realized that iPhone users need a great way to keep track of birthdays for their friends and family.

The idea started simple, but turned into so much more. With one tap of the finger you will have all of the upcoming birthdays for your contacts right in front of you. But sometimes you may not want a contact in your phone for each person you need to keep track of. Say for example, an 8 year old cousin. So this application also lets you add extra birthdays into it that show up right along with your contacts birthdays!

As an extra handy tool, with one more tap you can bring up a list of all of the people in your contact list that you do not have a birth date set for and enter it on the spot. Like mentioned earlier, you will never miss another birthday!

Id love to hear feedback from you on what features you would like added to this app for the future free updates, so please feel free to mention it in your reviews or send an email to the support address listed.

This is one of those tools youll never realize how much you needed until you start using it. Come on, weve all got iPhones here so who needs to be writing 50 birthdays on a paper calendar every year anymore?

Enjoy!

Thanks to a reviewer an important bug has been brought to my attention. When adding a custom birthday (it works fine with your contacts birthdays) the age shows up one year off. I have already issued an update to resolve this and the free update should show up on your phone/iPod within the next few days! (after the update you will NOT need to re-enter any information, it will be recalculated automatically)

Pros and cons of Birthdays! (Birthday Calendar) app for iPhone and iPad

Birthdays! (Birthday Calendar) app good for

I think the app works very well. Its very easy to use and helps a lot. The only negative point about it is that it doesn´t have an alert function to remind you that today has a birthday or that in a few days will be the birthday of a friend. You have to check it to see if there´s a birthday coming which is a really bad thing, because if don´t check it constantly you will still keep forgetting the dates. Hope a new version of it comes with an alert function.
I luv this app, works great!!! Hasnt crashed yet!! Worth it!!
Great app. Works well with contacts. Would have got a five star rating if you could edit birthdays that were added externally from the Contact List. Right now it only gives the option to delete it.
Altough great APP, nice interface, shows contacts who doesnt have birthday added.
I wish it would give some type of advance notice that a birthday is approaching.
This app is easy to use and works great, but I need it to alert me of a birthday. I dont want to have to check it everyday. I love that I can add and edit for people that are not in my contacts! The ONLY thing missing is an alert, at least on the day of the birthday would be nice. Thanks!!!

Some bad moments

It gets the year wrong. Pls fix this. Useless app. Good concept. But pls make it work. If u were born nov 3rd 2005. U are turning 3 not 4. Can I get my buck back?
app works not bad but it doesnt remind you of a birthday. The only way to know is to open the app, so if you dont open it youll miss someones birthday. If you enter a birthday with in the app it puts the person a year older. I have removed the app and ill wait to see if any future updates correct these problems.
Its a good app but without the reminder gets useless! Its okay to have a List of birthdays but the reminder is really important cause sometimes we really forget to open the app and for sure would forget a birthday! Ill be waiting for the update!
Great application but it needs to have a reminder built in also it needs a blank space on the year wheel cause not always you can get the year, somepeople dont want to share the year they were born with you & one other thing its too easy to delete a birthday as soon you touch the contacts name its asking to delete....without the fix its rated one star, & with an update it would be rated star of all stars.... April 4 2009 I have notice that after a birthday the entry stays at the top...it should go to the bottom of the list to start over the count & to make room for the nex birthday... ********************************************* April 26 2009 still waiting on updates... *********************************************
As others have said: this app falls short without a reminder function.
Cannot edit entries once made Cannot turn off year of birth function Stubbornly insisted that the date was a day earlier that it was The freebees work better
