BirthdayBook is a wonderful!

I never liked the little standard popup notifications the system shows and birthdayBook fills the void with it’s customizable colorful reminder window. I like the fact it shows all the birthdays and other events to occur in the next 10 days (you can change that range too) so there is warning to send cards to relatives in time . I also like that you can click on a birthday and send a message from there. Best of all it shows birthdays of famous people and one click brings up a web page about them.

I contacted the developer about an issue and he responded immediately with a fix. The reminders do show up every day or at a set times so the previous reviewer should contact the developer about that problem.

Thanks for making a great app!

Great app!

I wanted a small simple app to enter and remind me of birthdays and events. This app does exactly what I want it to do which is being able to enter Birthdays/Anniversarys and other events! AND being reminded of them in a timely fashion. (you set that part) It’s also super easy to import your birthdays/anniversarys/events from your contacts, calendar or backup list. I didn’t want to re-enter all events.

I did have one problem with it which happened to be my fault. I contacted Support and heard back right away. Rob is awesome in his support of birthdayBook. Problem solved, lesson learned and I’m on my way to not missing any birthdays, anniversaries/etc.

Great app… but the reminder doesn’t work!

I’ve been using this app for a while and I love it! It truly makes remembering simple and easy. However, I set the reminder “Once a day at pre set time” at 12PM, but it never appears on that time, or ever. I have to manually open the app to see the list of birthdays that are coming up soon. If only the reminder worked flawlessly, I would deem this app to be perfect. Also, I think it would be more convenient for some people if this app allowed several reminder per day, at pre-set times. You guys should look into this matter!
