Birthday reminder is a very simple piece of software that does exactly what its name says and nothing more: it reminds you of your friends' birthdays.
Everything's pretty basic and that's actually a very good thing because simplicity is always greatly appreciated.
The main window of the app shows the configured events, along with names, scheduled time, the number of days ahead to be notified, age now, days till the event, reminder status, type and print status.
All essential options are displayed in a separate panel, letting you display a reminder once a day, keep the window always on top and set the number of days to search for new events.
You can import and export previously configured events, but it's more important to learn how to add new birthdays to the list.
There are only a few options at your disposal, such as name, email, birthday, icon, warn days, type and two different settings, don't ever remind about the new item and don't print it.
Developed to run all the time, Birthday reminder works on very low resources and doesn't affect system performance in any way. Furthermore, it can get along with any Windows flavor on the market and doesn't ask for administrator privileges.
Overall, Birthday reminder comprises only the essential options, so professional users may feel a bit disappointed. On the good side however, you don't really need to be a very experienced user to figure out the purpose of each feature, even though a help manual doesn't exist.
