Birthday Calendar Pal: Written iPhone App Review
Remembering birthdays of relatives is hard enough to do, so what happens when you have hundreds of Facebook friends? While there are many apps that allow you to be notified of birthdays, it’s time to become the ultimate Facebook birthday wisher!
Birthday Calendar Pal, developed by 321AppLabs, is a new and useful way to keep track of birthdays and send custom cards and greetings to your friends. Never wish someone an awkward belated happy birthday again!
Concept and Functionality:
Birthday Calendar Pal seeks to eliminate the risk of missing a birthday by connecting with your Facebook account and giving you easy access to birthday information.
In order to use the app properly, you need to not only allow Facebook access your information, but you also need to give the app permission to send posts to your friends on your behalf. Once you’ve successfully connected Birthday Calendar Pal to Facebook, you’re able to quickly and easily see upcoming birthdays.
Birthday Calendar Pal offers two ways to view upcoming birthdays. You can choose to view birthdays the classic calendar way or in list format. While this is purely personal preference, I’d have to say that viewing birthdays in a list format would be more efficient for users who have many friends. You’re able to see birthdays months in advance, plus you know which friends will be celebrating without having to tap individual days on the calendar.
Of all the cool things Birthday Calendar Pal can do, I’d have to say that sending greetings to friends directly within the app has to be the coolest feature. After all, do you really want to be one of those friends who writes a typical “Happy Birthday!”, or do you want to quickly and easily send your friend something meaningful and personalized?
You can even choose to send a greeting via text message. There are hundreds of greetings to choose from, and all of them are sorted by category see you can easily find what you’re looking for. You can choose from short poems to jokes and even world languages. After all, how many people can say they were wished a happy birthday in Bulgarian?
Birthday Calendar Pal is available to download from the App Store for $0.99. If you enjoy keeping track of birthdays and you’re looking for a cool new way to do so, I definitely recommend downloading Birthday Calendar Pal!
Birthday Calendar Pal is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
