More Tips
When sharing via email the date’s full description is included, while sharing via Messages, Twitter or Facebook will only be a short summary.
You can use AirDrop in the sharing panel to give the date to another person running Midnight Dates on their device.
Backup or share all your dates by sending yourself an email from the Options view. The long url at the end will import them all together.
Share dates via the web and email using the Midnight Dates url format: mbd://DateName?2014-12-31 or from multiple dates: mbd://DateName?2014-12-31/DateName?2014-12-31/DateName?2014-12-31

I am having fun with this!

I have been enjoying picking out upcoming dates - such as birthdays, vacations, and holidays - and entering them into "As of Today." My favorite thing to do with it so far is to take a screen shot of the date I created (by clicking the home button and the sleep/wake button at the same time) and then emailing the screen shot from the "camera roll" to my friend or friends who are going to share in the upcoming event or celebration with me.

I really love this app! It is such a unique way of looking at the passage of time. I really love the recent updates as well.

Way to go Hans and Mark for creating such a great application!

From 5 stars to 1 star

Used to love this app. Had a bunch of important dates in it an enjoyed opening it up just to reflect on how time passes. Then, one day, I opened the app and everything was gone. So I re-entered a handful of dates. The next time I opened the app, they were all gone. So I entered a few more, mailed a backup to myself, and "force quit" the app. When I opened it again—about two minutes after entering the dates—it was empty again. Sad to see something that was so simple and elegant become something so … useless. Deleted.
