App Review: Birthdays Diary

If you need a more powerful calendar for displaying upcoming birthdays + the ability to search, Birthdays Diary is the perfect FREE app for you.

Birthdays Diary has an elegant metro interface that syncs up with your phone’s contacts and even your Facebook friends, pulling in their contact info, birthday info, and profile picture. It then displays all the info in a format that is a lot easier to view than the native calendar app on WP7.

You can quickly flip through the weeks and months, and view all your friends’ upcoming birthdays. Then, you can click on a friend and get links to post on their Facebook wall, send them a text message, etc. You can even search for your friend’s name, something that the native calendar app on WP7 completely lacks.

And finally, the app has an excellent live tile with plenty of customization options. The tile can display how many upcoming birthdays there are in the next day, next week, next month, etc. It can then flip over and show you one of the person’s birthday along with their profile picture.

The only thing I found missing from this app was page transitions. If the developer threw in a few turnstile or slide transitions between pages, it’d be even better!
