BIRTHDAYLIST {HOMEBREW} [TOUCHPAD] – REVIEW (75%)

29 Apr

BirthdayList is a birthday reminder application and is released by Ahsirg.

(screen shot edited to remove images and contact names)

“The application shows all your on-device contact’s birthdays (from all accounts) and allows to add reminders to them.”

This is one of the simpliest applications I have ever used, as it really only has one real function and required no setup on my part, it just works.

BirthdayList opens up and immediately links to your webOS contact list. If there is a birthday for that contact it will immediately be listed within the application.

Therefore, if you have not linked your contacts via Synergy then this application is likely to be blank, however, if you have linked your Synergy account to facebook or yahoo it is likely the application will be full of birthday dates.

As I linked my account to facebook I had a near complete list of birthdays on my screen immediately. The birthdays are shown in a list in date our, so the next birthday will appear at the top of the list.

Each birthday shows the image of the person (from facebook for example), the birthday, and age if it is available.

You can set a reminder for a birthday by tapping a clock icon on the line. This offers to add the birthday details direct to your calendar. Tap on the birthday entry and it will open that persons contact details, so you have all the contact details to ping them a happy birthday message if you wish.

Clearly if you wish to add additional people to the list you need to add them into your contact list.

The only real shortfall of the application is there is no way to filter out people who you are not really that interested in without removing them from facebook etc.

On the upside:

  • Simple and Easy to use.
  • Does exactly what you expect.

On the downside:

  • Filtering of list would have been nice.

Overall, this is a very simple application that does exactly what it is designed to do. The more contacts you have linked the more useful the application becomes, especially if you hate to miss other peoples birthdays.
