Have you ever forgotten someone special's birthday? Do you remember that rush of panic when you realize that today is your anniversary and you don't have any present or plans? And what about those times when you should have made that call to comfort a loved one on the anniversary of someone's passing? With Birthday Boss it will NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN.

* Keep all of your important birthdays, anniversaries, deaths, and other annual events in one place, and see what’s coming up next in a simple scrolling list or traditional calendar-style display.

* Import events quickly from your address-book contacts or add events manually for people who are not in your contacts; all you need is a name, month, and day.

* Group your items using the built-in ‘Family’, ‘Friends’, and ‘Work’ groupings or create your own custom groups.

* Get pop-up reminders on the day of each event and add additional advance notifications as needed.

* Add yearly history logs for events to help with advance planning or recording previous gifts and activities.

* See how old someone will be on their birthday or what anniversary it is, with configurable milestones to highlight those extra-special times.

* Easily share event details with standard sharing tools for email, text, print, and more.

* Send a quick ‘Happy Birthday’ email or text message directly from within the app.

* Find items quickly with search or use the assigned groups to filter what items are shown.

* Add the Birthday Boss widget to your Today screen for automatic daily event updates.

And iCloud Sync keeps your information up-to-date across all of your devices automatically!

Excellent App - A Rare Find

Good birthday reminder apps are almost impossible to find. Most other birthday applications haven’t been updated in years. This one has almost every feature I could want. I do wish it would sync with Dropbox instead of just iCloud, so I could keep my wife’s devices in sync with mine. Thanks to the developer for keeping this excellent app alive and up to date. I love it.

Mr. Goals ,


I am updating a review that I made this past week. My review was one star due to the fact that all info was deleted after the ios15 update.
I would like to commend the developer Christopher King on his concern and many attempts helping me to find the cause and then to correct the problem. Although the glitch wasn’t reversed the developer spent a lot of time in attempting to finding a solution. To me this shows a quality product and a responsible developer.

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear about the trouble but the iOS update should not impact your birthday boss data unless you change or logout of the iCloud account that you were using as part of it.

After updates it can also take a while before the data appears according to other reports from previous updates.

Please check the app again and contact technical support if there is still an issue and we’ll be happy to assist.

Great reminder app

App works great. Reminds you when you select the appropriate settings. Even days or weeks in advance. Very easy to use. Just leave app open/minimized. Don’t close out of it completely :-)
Customer service is excellent. Emailed back and forth until my phone’s issues were fixed. They worked with me until I knew how to use it.

Developer Response ,

If alerts aren't working check the app's settings screen to see what it says for 'Notifications' since it might be that the device is blocking them.

The 'Alerts' section of settings can also be accessed from here to setup when to display the notifications.

And if it still isn't working for you, email me at and I'll do what I can to help.
