Birthday Calendar Pal iPhone App Review.

If you can never remember important dates like your friends' and family's birthdays, then perhaps it's time to keep a handy notebook with all these and periodically check out when a birthday is just around the corner. Or perhaps it's time to download Birthday Calendar Pal from the App Store and never miss another birthday again. The iPhone app will always know when your Facebook friends have an upcoming birthday and help you plan a wonderful birthday message ahead of time.

How does it work?

Birthday Calendar Pal only needs to connect to your Facebook account in order to pick up your friends and their birthdays. The app requires two permissions from you. One is to look through your list of friends. The other is to post a message on their wall on your behalf. Once you allow the app to do its thing, you're set to go.

The app will immediately display a calendar view of the current month and each day with a birthday event will have a little party face. Tapping on the day will bring up a list of your friends that will be celebrating their birthdays on that date. From here, you can select a friend by tapping on her, create a birthday card, attach a message and personalize it to your heart's desire. You can post it to Facebook immediately, or schedule it to be posted on her birthday. When the birthday comes, you'll receive a push notification that it's time to post the message.

You can plan your birthday greetings for the entire year like this. Sure enough, you'll spend some time doing it, but Birthday Calendar Pal makes things easy to navigate through and browse. In fact, the only thing I wish they would have done better is the actual design of the app, which falls short of expectations for an iOS app. The user experience is simple, no bells or whistles, but it also looks like the design lacks more than a "wow" factor. The simple colors as well as the choice and combos don't work in the app's favor. The more than a dozen free birthday cards and the abundence of birthday jokes and quotes make Birthday Calendar Pal a good addition to any iPhone. If you're on Facebook. But these days, who isn't?
