Have you ever forgotten your mum’s or friend’s birthday? Happens to me quite often. I decided to do something about it so I went out to the internet wild and looked for an application which would do just that – remind me about birthday of my friends and relatives.
I found a few apps but the one that stood out from crowd was Best Birthday from SmartphoneWare. It offers lots of functions but the only one I was looking for was a possibility to easily add a reminder to every contact in my phonebook. With Best Birthday it’s a matter of a couple of key presses.
First, you have to define each person’s birthday in your phonebook. After you launch Best Birthday, it will load all your contacts. Mark them all and add a reminder via options menu. You can define how many days before the actual birthday you want to be reminded, at what time of a day and you can even turn on the alarm. The reminder will appear on your idle screen just like a calendar entry.
SmartphoneWare lets you try this application for 15 days for free. If you find it useful it’s only $9.95 to buy. I really recommend to check it out. It’s my best spent 10 bucks on a phone application after Handy Alarm.
