I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I use a list to track everyone’s birthdays throughout the year. I document all the birthdays and I have reminders emailed to me, so I know weeks in advance if a birthday is coming up so I can plan accordingly.
I’ve always done this through birthdayalarm.com, which I really love but for some reason they don’t have an app. Now that I’m totally addicted to my iPhone — I need an app for everything! So I went in search of one and I found Birthday Calendar. This is essential if you want to be organized and have everyone’s birthday in one spot.
It will upload birthday information from Facebook or your contacts list in your phone. You can also input them manually and a countdown of how many days until the person’s birthday will pop up. There is even a spot for zodiac signs, if you’re into that sort of thing.
There is also an alarm so you will be notified in advance of each birthday. You can pick how far in advance you’d like to be reminded about each birthday. This way you can get ready either with a card or a gift or whatever it is that you want to do to make that person feel special.
Your loved ones really will appreciate it!
