Candles is the answer to managing anniversaries and birthdays in iCal. Using a simple interface, Candles takes your birthdays and other dates from Address Book and allows you to add reminder events in iCal. Candles allows the creation of any number of alarms for each and every anniversary.
You'll never forget an Anniversary again!
Candles extracts all the birthdays and other dates from your Address Book for you to set reminders against. This provides the only way to view all your anniversaries in one place. With the ability to sort these anniversaries by name, calendar date or original date (i.e. with the year the event actually fell in), Candles provides the ability to visualise all your anniversaries.
Candles allows you to set as many Alarms as you need. Up to two Default Alarms can be set, which are then created for each of your Anniversaries. In addition, any number of additional alarms can be created for a specific Anniversary.
All Alarms have the same options and capabilities as in iCal, so you've got full control over when the alarm occurs, and what it does.
Once you're happy that you've set all the reminders that you need, you can tell Candles to update iCal with your details. Candles will then created detailed events for each Anniversary, and set the Alarms that you've told it to.
What's New in Version 1.1
Adds improvements to Address Book and Calendar analysis to improve accuracy, and improvements to Calendar creation process.
Cannot add birthdays
I cannot add b-days in Candles itself. I have to add people's information in the Address Book but even though I added people's information in the Address Book... it still doesn't appear in Candles :( what a shame... I was expecting a plus and minus sign in Candles so I can just add people's b-day's/anniversaries or other things there but it doesn't.
Pointless app that doesn't seem to take information from the address book. Might as well just set a recurring reminder on iCal for birthdays
