Do you have a lot of friends and family members? Remembering all of those birthdays can be very difficult, and not wishing a friend a happy birthday on their special day can cause a serious strain on the relationship. Still, if you have more than a few birthdays you need to remember, it can be tough to keep track of them all. If you want to make sure you save those friendships and keep your friends and family happy, you are going to need some assistance.
iRemembered is the perfect app for keeping track of birthdays. It is incredibly easy to use and it will make sure that you never forget another one of your friends’ special days again. The app has a slick, easy to use interface that anyone can pick up and figure out how to use in just a few moments.
Best of all, you can grab iRemembered from the App Store free for a limited time [No longer available]. The app normally sells for $0.99, but if you download it right away, you can save the dollar and remember those important birthdays for free!
Manually entering all of your friends birthdays would take a long time, so the app gives you the ability to import them from Facebook or your contacts. This should save you a lot of time instead of entering each birthday one at a time. On the top left of the screen you will see a button labeled “Import.” Click that button and the app will give you the option to import from one of the two locations.
Of course, you can add birthdays manually if you need to. Simply click the “+” button on the top of the screen to add birthdays on your own. It makes the process quick, and you can even add pictures to the entry so it blends in with the Facebook birthdays with their pictures.
Once you have everything imported, you will see a huge list of all your friends birthdays on the main page. You can also go to the calendar page and see the days when birthdays are coming up. On the Birthdays page, the list is alphabetized which helps you find a specific person. If you want to see the list of birthdays coming up soon, simply go to the upcoming page, and you will see the people who have birthdays coming up, sorted from soonest to latest.
The app will alert you of upcoming birthdays. You can choose when the app alerts you via the Settings screen. You can choose a time of day for the app to alert you and how many days before the birthday the app should inform you. You can tell the app to alert you anywhere from 1 to 10 days before the birthday. You can also choose whether the app reminds you again on the day of the actual birthday.
If you have a lot of birthdays to remember, this app can be a real life saver. Instead of manually entering birthdays into a calendar, or trying to remember them on your own, this app allows you to import them in one shot and receive reminders when the big day arrives. You can grab the app from the App Store free for a limited time. Don’t wait, because the app will go back to $0.99 soon, and you will miss the boat.
