Screen Play App of the Week: Birthday Express
June 2, 2011
© Birthday Express
Works on: iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad
For: People who have too many birthdays to keep track of
Between friends’ birthdays, kids’ birthdays, friends’ kids’ birthdays, kids’ friends’ birthdays and all the other birthdays in our social circles, there are just so many dates we need to keep track of. It’s never fun realizing that you’ve missed a close friend’s birthday, so why not avoid the situation altogether and keep all important birthdates organized in one place?
That’s where Birthday Express comes in. You can either manually enter birthdays, or for greater ease, just import them directly from Facebook. All important birthdays are immediately listed out by month and lets you see whose special days are coming up and also includes ages, photos and zodiac signs (assuming they list their birth year and included a photo in Facebook).
What would make this app even better is if they included a push notification that alerted you to upcoming birthdays, rather than the user having to check regularly, but considering it’s a free app, it does the job well and keeps you from having to send out that belated birthday greeting.
