Simply Birthdays Reminder is just that...
… an easy, simple and beautiful way to display your Contacts birthdays.

Easy, quick to setup. No settings/configurations just one time only “allow access to your contacts”, and run the app!
If a birthday is due within 3 days, a badge will display the “days to go” on the App icon
A notification will alert you at 9am on day of a birthday.

Simply Birthdays will display;-
* Contact photo (if set in Contacts)
* Age next birthday
* Countdown of days to next birthday
* Weekday of next birthday
* Highlight (in red) of milestone birthdays
* Date Of Birth
* Weekday of birth
* Zodiac name
* Zodiac sign
* Birthday list sorted by “days to go”.

Day and month should be entered in your Contacts App birthday field (year is optional).

Simply Birthdays needs to read your birthday dates from Contacts, as it does not itself hold any details.
This way, there is no duplication, and YOUR data stays safely in YOUR device’s Contacts, even if Simply Birthdays is deleted.
If your contacts are synced in iCloud, Simply Birthdays will also appear synced on all your devices.

Zodiac signs have been added to enhance the visual experience (and for a bit of fun!).
If you were born on a day bordering between two Zodiac signs (at its cusp) the only way to be sure of which sign you are is by knowing birth location, year, and even time of birth.
This information is not available in your Contacts, and therefore Simply Birthdays makes a “best effort” guess using the birthday date.

If the person you want to list in birthdays is not in your contact list you can’t list them. My Grandchildren are not in my contact list and it would be nice to have them al listed.

Developer Response

Please read the “Important” information in the App description which clearly states that this App is designed to use birthday contact details only.
If you want your grandchildren listed, just add a contact name and birthday for each grandchild. Their birthdays would then be available in Simply Birthdays and even your iOS calendar
