Birthdays helps you to keep track of birthdays and collect and organize ideas for gifts. You can set multiple notifications for birthdays or only, if you haven't purchased a gift yet. Synchronize birthdays from your devices contacts and manually add more birthdays when there is no contact. Save gift ideas, add a photo and mark them as purchased after you did so. Compared to a calendar, with Birthdays you can see rings showing the progression of one's year of life. Birthdays is the best way to overview birthdays, is optimized for iPhone and iPad and offers system integrations such as a Today widget, Siri Shortcuts, Split Screen support and more.

- customize your settings if you'd either like to show days until birthdays or the date they occur
- hide or show nicknames and last names
- edit a default text that automatically fills out e.g. name and age if you send congratulations

- snooze notifications for 5 minutes, one or three hours to not miss a birthday even when you're in a hurry
Many features of Birthdays were requested by users. Feedback is welcome and if you like the app, a rating is much appreciated. Birthdays is made possible by a one-time payment - no ads, no subscription and no tracking. The app can be used offline completely and asks openly for permissions to do exactly the things its intended for, and nothing more. Enable crash reports in iOS to help fix bugs quickly. To do so, go to system settings, "Privacy" > "Analytics" > "Share iPhone & Watch Analytics" and enable "Share With App Developers". I hope you enjoy the app and if something is odd, just send a mail and I'll look into it.
