Straightforward birthday utility

Keep track of birthdays with this simple program.

SS Birthday reminder is a simple program that allows users to keep track of their friends' birthdays and other information. Its basic interface and straightforward functions make it a good choice for users looking for a quick and easy birthday utility.

The program's interface is plain, displaying a list of the people the user has entered in a grid. It is easy to add new people, and users can also include contact information and notes, making this program a very basic contact manager as well as a birthday reminder. The program's features are limited but functional. Users can determine how many days in advance they would like to be reminded of birthdays, and the program displays a pop-up window each day when there's an upcoming birthday. On days when there are no birthdays in the near future, the program will tell users when the next upcoming birthday is. Users can also create reports listing all the birthdays in the current month, which could be especially useful for employers planning to recognize employee birthdays (or other users who like to do their card shopping all at once). The program's online Help file gives a summary of the program's functions but doesn't go into much detail; fortunately, the program is simple enough that this is not a major drawback.

SS Birthday Reminder limits trial users to five contacts. The program installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users seeking an easy way to keep track of birthdays.
