The best

This is my first review ever, but I wanted to write it to congratulate the Hip team for their accomplishment. I always had trouble keeping track of important birthdays, and would periodically go through the awkwardness of forgetting to wish someone in my circle a happy one. Hip has enabled me to offload the cognitive task of remembering birthdays and track them from a single source of truth, with a beautiful UI.

As a suggestion, the gift idea feature can be better tailored for people. Maybe you can prompt users to add some keywords that represent the interests of the birthday person, and show results and similar products based on suggestions. For example, if I input ‘yoga’, I wanted to see mats and rollers, but also related items like aromatherapy vials, wellness gift cards (experiences!), books by Ram Dass, and ayurveda teas.

Thanks again for a wonderful app!

Day Stars was a much better app, which the developers abandoned to start this one. It is not supported anymore and you can’t find it on App Store. Hip cuts off the top portion of the thumbnail in the card, in most of the cases it’s the persons head. The birthday card wording is weird, this one says “celebrates 16 years” instead of “turned 16 today” in Day Stars. There is a big white stamp in the bottom in hip, instead of a watermark of Day Stars. I still use my Day Star app even its still has some bugs, like you can’t save the birthday reminder card. While improvement is always welcomed but it should be in the right direction.

Hello and thanks for the feedback! B'days does support a variety of notification sounds for the birthday reminders. See the option in the Profile screen. As for other type of events, you might enjoy our other app more: www.daystars.com

Third review: Raising back to 4 stars as the developers FINALLY listened to the negative feedback regarding the icon and name change and allowed users to chose the app icon they wished. Now if they allowed the cake icon to be labeled B-Days as it was before the upgrade to “hip” it would get 5 stars from me. I still fail to see what they hoped to gain by their initial action and obstinate refusal to listen to the criticism of their users. Still the best B-Day app with unique gift suggestions.

Second review: Lowering my rating another star as the developer doesn’t seem to lister to users. Click on “Most recent” reviews and the majority complain about the icon/name change. I think it’s time for a change. There is Birthday Reminder Pro+ on the App Store. Less money and a higher rating...and the icon has balloons and the word “Birthdays” on it.

First review: The app icon of a B-Day cake and candle made sense....the icon of a winking hippopotamus with “hip.” under it does not. And the need to call oneself hip displays a lack of hipness. I’m dropping a star because of the icon change. That said...

It is the best birthday app I’ve used or seen. And the gift suggestions the app offers are very “hip.” It removes the step of using a search engine for “unique and useful gifts with a range of prices.”

Change the app icon and keep up the good work.

Thanks for sharing. We love hearing feedback from you. We think of hip as representing how we want to help people celebrate. To keep you connected and original, making life’s many occasions, not only birthdays and anniversaries, special!

As we grow, we want to capture this essence, and hip allows us to do that. You can read more here https://medium.com/@hipapp/hipping-hopping-to-a-new-us-f8a78ddd5173.
