Still The Best!

I enjoy having a separate place outside of the calendar to see just birthdays and anniversaries for my contacts.

After trying 5 other birthday apps this one is the best!

Imports all events from Contacts (birthdays & anniversaries, etc.), lists them in a very legible chronological order, separates them by month and allows you text or phone them from within the app. Different color themes are available and all pictures stay updated.

The alert choices in this are the best!!! For some friends, I only need notification same day and for others I want more notice for gift giving.

Would love to see the ability to customize a theme or colors within the app.

Calendar sync is an option. This is great so I don’t get duplicates there.

Keep it going! Nothing else compares.

Wouldn't want to be without this reminder

I have always felt it was considerate and loving to send my friends and family birthday and other occasion cards and calls on the special day. This used to necessitate scheduling in my calendar, a week early, to remember to send a card and scheduling again to call on the appointed day. Sometimes I forgot one or the other (or both), and while not catastrophic, I was disappointed in myself.
Now, I get reminders about any occasion (birthdays, anniversaries) in accordance with an entry into my contacts (noting friends/families birthdays, anniversaries), so I can never forget. I have to say that I use JibJab to send Ecards, so no mailing in advance, no postage and memorable cards, as they are funnier than anything anyone's ever received before, by using my loved ones faces on video cards. Occasions lets people see how much I care for them by reminding me about the occasions that require cards and calls from me. Fabulous app.
