birthdayBook is a simple and very useful application which presents elegant reminders of all upcoming birthdays and other events according to a user defined date range. You can customize the way the reminders look including creating their own icons from iPhoto or a folder of images. You can select to show birthdays of famous people too, mostly artist, writers, and other historic notables.

There are different international lists of famous birthdays which can also be added to the default famous names. Beautiful list-style calendars can be formatted and printed. Fully integrated with the Apple Contacts and Calendar apps to more...

What's New

  • There is a new feature: the "Snooze" button, which allows users to receive a second reminder at a given time interval after the first reminder.
  • Fixed a bug that caused a crash when the email button was pressed without an event selected in more...

Following on from previous post I have now worked with this application (and its developer) and find it perfect for the shortfalls that iCal and Address Book present on the Mac. This imports smoothly from Address Book and you can chose to run alongside iCal. The interface is clean and simple and does exactly what you expect from the description here. My previous post related to an earlier version of the software that was having problems with a rogue Address Book entry.... all sorted in a few emails - excellent, friendly and thorough support from Rob.

Highly recommended. Thank you

I use this program for many years now and I'm still very satisfied with it. It does very well what it must do. The developer is also very responsive. Thanks for this great little gem.

Great program with great features. It's a nice way to automatically see reminders of important dates on your desktop and you can sync it with iCal. Very customizable too. Thanks!

Last year I had a bug which caused the program interface to disappear. I could get the data field to show up when I would go under file and select "Print Table" but when I would select the arrow button to go back to the interface, Birthdaybook would quit. The bug came back again and it's been about a year since it happened before. I was playing with it for a couple of hours to find out what was wrong. When I went to the preferences and changed the range of days from "up to 20 days before to "up to 10 days before" the interface came back. Maybe there was too much information to display? I don't really know but I'm glad it's working again.

Great app when it worked. Interface is gone, list still shows up. Did what was suggested on the developers website (complete reinstall). When I imported the information I backed-up, interface disappears. Contacted developer and they did not respond. Too bad so sad...

Nice app, it would be nice if you could sort it so that it starts on todays date as opposed to Jan 1.

Just to give kudos to the developers for their release notes. This is really the way to go about informing users so that they can decide whether to upgrade or not. Others would do wisely to do likewise.

Also - thanks for a nice utility :-)

The ability to Import dates from AddressBook would be a big timesaver.

Try looking in the File menu. You can import any birthday or anniversary entries from address book. Rob DuToit
