Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

birthdays Birthdays is very simple application that allows you to keep track of upcoming birthdays. In order for this application to actually work, you will need to add (or have) Birthdays assigned to your Contacts. To add a Birthday to a contact….go to your Phone app, select Contacts, select a contact, tap Edit is the upper right corner, scroll down and tap on Add Field, scroll down and tap Birthday, enter the date of the person’s Birthday and tap Save in the upper right corner.

When you open the Birthdays application, you will see the main screen in which it displays birthdays in the current month, next month and then any other birthdays. The list will display the contacts name and the day and the month of their birthday. If you tap one of the people in the list, you will be able to see that person’s contact info. Though, you can’t actually call them from within the Birthday’s application which I think is most definitely a necessity!! [Read more…]
