Wish I had more varied alarm options or a default event time setting. I love being able to export the holidays I'm interested in to my daily working calendar and ONLY those holidays. I export my menu app MealBoard to my working calendar and voilà banana cream pie on banana cream pie day. Fun for mom with hobby time managing house with stressed students who have no time but can join in on Talk Like a Pirate Day. Love the export function that lets you edit the holiday making it more terse before exporting it. Feel like splurging on Tempura Shrimp for the family supper? Wait. Is there a holiday for that coming up soon? Just use the search function and find out. I export my selected holidays as yearly repeats with 1 week alarms. Next year I can expand to pick up more or celebrate a different subset of the holidays. On chocolate mint day we had Girl Scout thin mints. Good timing Girl Scouts. It's guilt free dessert eating you plan for with lighter meals. Artichoke Heart Day? Crabmeat Day? Make an old or new recipe to fit it and put the holiday on the family calendar so they all see it and ask if we're eating that. This app is worth the money to be able to flawlessly export pick and choose holidays so they all don't clutter up your calendar. Plus the search function is a must and it works great.
Developer Response ,
Hello! Thank you verych muhc for the kind review! We are pleased to inform you that the option to synchronize all the holidays to the calendar on your device is now available in Holiday Today. For now, you can synchronize all the events, but we are considering extending this functionality in the future.
Excellent option to replace Apple’s default PC holidays. Choose your own.
It took a couple (fun) hours to go through the holidays list to pick out the traditional ones & quickly add them to Apple’s Calendar app. I put them on the family calendar from my iPhone and set each holiday to repeat annually - trying to be careful to use custom settings where “days of week” was necessary. Since I have calendar on iCloud, it instantly synced to all the family devices. Just chuckle & smirk past all the “non-traditional” holidays & counter-protest holidays. This is a very intuitive user interface - kudos to the programmers! They thought of almost everything needed to customize your holiday choice. My 2 cents for improvements: 1) Change “Show As” default to “free” instead of “busy” on the add holiday to Calendar. 2) Allow a search by category in list view - it takes a while to peruse the whole list.
Excellent fun app!!!
I have used this app for over a year. Enjoy the layout and the information provided.
Once, I found an odd national holiday that was missed. When I sent off an email to the developers, I received a quick reply acknowledging the omission. After a thank you, the developers added the holiday on the next update. These folks do not ignore their customers.
I saw one criticism of the app that historical dates along with helpful links for more information would be a nice addition. While I enjoy th “This day in history...” information, I hope the developers do not go down that path. There are many other apps that do history quite well. For me this app should simply focus on the weird and not so weird days and national holidays. Many entries have a link. That’s fine, but I’m not going to research each entry.
So, I believe the developers are doing a splendid job. Just what I wanted from the app when I purchased it.
