BirthdayScannerX for Mac2.4.3

11 March 2010

Imports birthdays and other dates from Address Book to iCal.

What is BirthdayScannerX for Mac

BirthdayScannerX is a powerful tool to synchronize birthdays and other anniversaries between your Address Book and iCal (or other calendar programs).

iCal will remind you of all upcoming birthdays in time.

With BirthdayScanner X, you can:

  • Create events in iCal for all anniversaries (not only birthdays) in your Address Book
  • Save the anniversaries as a standard calendar file. Import them to any calendar program - Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Sunbird, Google calendar etc.
  • Bring the anniversaries to your iPhone - without a special iPhone application: just by syncing normally with your Mac.
  • Add reminders to the anniversary events
  • Customize the event text (now optimized to look good on the iPhone too)

What's new in BirthdayScannerX

Version 2.4.3:
  • Dutch localization added - many thanks to Eric van der Veldt for his work.
  • In the event title settings, added "Birthyear" placeholder to show the birth year of the jubilee.
  • Fixed issue which caused middle names not showing properly (e.g. dutch \"tussenvoegsel\" - \"van\", \"van der\" etc.)
  • Fixed issue which caused events added to the Notes field of an Address Book contact to be parsed incorrectly.

It's always unbelievable that one has to rely on sharewares/freewares to fill a lack from Apple to such an obvious need! :-(

Absolutely best solution for appointments import into OS X calendars (not only to iCal). The program offers a lot of import formats and flexible reminders Unfortunately due to several changes in iCal the BirthdayScannerX do not work correct under Lion any longer. Yes it is possible to export appointments indirectly but I was not able to keep these incredible formats and reminders. Dear Thomas, please update your program! Ich würde sogar gerne dafür etwas zu zahlen.

Not sure why I'd previously ignored BSX but finally gave it a try after noticing the latest update and being impressed with the thorough documentation on the developer site. First-time usage was flawless, operating without iCal or Address Book running. Event template is handy and the symbols are a nice touch. Conveniently supports up to three alarms. Haven't tried updating any existing entries but may never want to. Even if BSX could have other features nothing obvious is overlooked for my purposes. Fully satisfied with it as-is since it did/does everything I want, plus a bit more. Definitely deserves a donation when I have the budget. Well done!

Found this software recently and am lucky with this. This is just what I wanted for a lot of time. Offers functions that iCal should have offered itself. Thank you very much, developer, for this stuff. It works completely fine for me. Mac OS X 10.5.7, iMac PowerPC.

Hi, I was surprised that MacUpdate had updated the product page, because I had not submitted the information about the new version yet. I guess they got it somehow from CNet. I will update the product page. To answer your question: The BirthdayScanner X does: - add up to 3 customized Alarms to the Birthday Event - also creates iCal Events for other Dates, like Anniversaries - the resulting Calendar is a normal calendar, not write protected, so you can modify it to your hearts content - the Events show the Age of the person - Finally, you can also just export an ICS file, that way you can import your Address Book birthdays into any other calendar apps, even if not on Mac. Cheers, Thomas

What is the point of this utility if Leopard's iCal itself includes 'Show Birthdays calendar' option in preferences? Would be useful, if the author have stressed this app's peculiarity and what makes it different.
