JBirthdays is a small, yet useful utility that aims to provide you with a way to manage and keep track of all the birth dates of your friends and acquaintances. Simplicity is one of its main characteristics, while its functions allow you to never forget about birthday events ever again.
The application enables you to create your own contact database and store data concerning the name and the surname of each person, e-mail addresses and the date of birth. Furthermore, you can add a short note to each contact, describing for instance, your relationship status, a fact that you should remember or the perfect present for that particular person. New entries can be easily added to the database, while existing ones can be edited to removed.
Based on the information you provided, JBirthdays automatically reads the birth date of each contact and send it to the 'Dates' tab, where it organizes items by days. By default, it shows you the birthdays for the current day, the next 7 days and the past 3, but the time intervals are customizable.
JBirthdays enables you to view the birth date of each contact, along with the week day, the age and your notes. With the push of a button, you can automatically trigger the default e-mail client and send a message to a friend to congratulate him or her.
Aside from manually entering data, JBirthdays supports data importing from another application, making it easy for you to switch from your old birthday manager.
In addition to this, stored data can be easily exported to an iCal file, which can then be opened in calendar programs, such as Google Calendar.
JBirthdays is great for managing data regarding birthdays. However, some improvements would really make it stand out. For instance, it could be very useful to have the application notify you via e-mail or other means about upcoming birthdays.
