One of the few flaws of the iCal and Address Book bundle is the inability to import information from Address Book to iCal. More descriptively, the ability to transfer birthday information between the two.

iCal Birthday Shifter is not a fancy program with unneeded bells and whistles, it merely fixes a problem that Apple has not, and it does it wonderfully.

One of the few great features that this program allows is the ability to only add new birthdays, that were recently acquired, and not every birthday in the Address Book. This feature adds longevity to the program.

Great job. Worked on my G4, which runs Panther. Simple program that does what it says.

I would have liked to have a function that would alert me of a person's birthday, say 10 days before, so that I could remember to send a card ot pick up a present. Maybe in the next update?

This is a great little tool for sucking birthdays from your address book in to iCal. Just make sure your calendar is a) read only and b) you nuke the calendar prior to re-importing or you'll be celebrating the same birthday twice a day. The speed with which this came out with respect to the iCal release date was astounding. Great work!
