Still The Best!

I enjoy having a separate place outside of the calendar to see just birthdays and anniversaries for my contacts.

After trying 5 other birthday apps this one is the best!

Imports all events from Contacts (birthdays & anniversaries, etc.), lists them in a very legible chronological order, separates them by month and allows you text or phone them from within the app. Different color themes are available and all pictures stay updated.

The alert choices in this are the best!!! For some friends, I only need notification same day and for others I want more notice for gift giving.

Would love to see the ability to customize a theme or colors within the app.

Calendar sync is an option. This is great so I don’t get duplicates there.

Keep it going! Nothing else compares.

Good custsupport

Have always been pleased with the app until recently. It no longer shows any events except holidays. No birthdays, no anniversaries, etc. I checked and it is linked to my contacts. What happened to this app. Unless I can get it fixed, might as well delete.
UPDATE: Received an email from customer support with suggestions to try to correct the problem. Their suggestions seemed to have worked and the app again seems to be working fine. Good app in general.
