Great App

Great app! I have used this only to sync my birthdays and anniversaries from my Contacts. I already get notified of someone's birthday via facebook. If that person is special enough to me, then I add them to the Occasions app which will then also appear on my calendar.
I never miss birthdays and anniversaries because I get notified in advance if I want to mail a card or send a text. (I create a “Contact app” profile for each separate birthday, as well as a “separate” Contact profile for each couple’s anniversary without any further information and there is never any confusion as to whose name(s) appears on my calendar.)
I’m older and didn’t grow up with technology. My daughter recommended it. This was easy to begin, although it took a few tiny adjustments over the years.
I now get compliments on my tech knowledge 😂 and for being able to remember everybody’s birthdays and anniversaries🤔! Occasions even automatically tells me the current age of a person or how many years for the anniversary.
I’ve used it since I first got my iPhone nearly 4 years ago. Occasions app is fantastic and I’ve never been disappointed!

Back to Awesome

Ok this is update to the update reviews I gave while back..Initially I had stopped receiving alerts after a particular update except for the original alert time I put in when first installing app..meaning if I changed the alerts from the original it wouldn’t alert on new time it would still alert on the old time even tho it was changed.. so I tried other apps but they are so over done!! So I went back to Occasions cuz the simplicity is perfect and I set up my reminders on phone to remind me to check my Occassions app..lol I know🤪 now I finally did my app updates and realized Occasions had an OVERHAUL update!! Well first wanna say..u did amazing u still kept it simple and added eye candy which is beautiful..I love the theme idea hoping in future there will be more🤗not greedy just loving it❤️ I will find out tomorrow afternoon if my new set times on all my alerts will sound at new time and not old..🤞but hey if alert still has issue I don’t care this app and features are still awesome to me, I will use my reminders to look at Occasions if it comes to that😁❤️

My fav app ever!

Been a user of this app since it began! Most useful app I have on my iPhone! Use it nearly everyday so it’s on page one of my home screen.

Now they’ve Added custom themes!! And icon choices!

It does have a handy note section but any chance a field could be added in the future for gift info? That would totally rock!!

I’m not seeing the Today Widget. Am I missing something?

Previous review:
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. ✔️ thank you!!

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

Keep it going! Nothing else compares.
