Editors' Review

+
Even if you're having trouble coming up with ideas for a birthday present, you might think twice before opting for The Birthday Chronicle. This promising, but deeply flawed program, takes a name and a birth date and mocks up a newspaper page from that year, including a picture of the U.S. president, an article about consumer prices, and reports on the World Series and the Academy Awards. The Birthday Chronicle can handle birthdays all the way back to the year 1900; but except for the main headline, the stories are the same from year to year--only the details change. The demo prints a watermark diagonally across the page. You can print the newspaper or, in theory, send a PDF copy electronically. But beware: the PDF-creation feature failed to work on our Windows 2000 test systems. The awkward interface is another problem. And at $50, The Birthday Chronicle costs too much. If the bugs were fixed, the interface improved, the demo restrictions loosened, and more news templates added, The Birthday Chronicle might justify its price. As it is, you'd be better off buying your birthday boy or girl an old copy of Life Magazine.

 |  Version: The Birthday Chronicle 8.1

Pros

nothing if you want a date after 2004

Cons

If you're looking for a birthday keepsake for someone born after 2004, you are out of luck. You can only look up dates before 2004.

"I love this software!"

February 08, 2006  |  By JaneCoffee

 |  Version: The Birthday Chronicle 8.1

Pros

I have looked at every possible type of software like this. This is head and shoulders above the rest. I use it in my business to send client birthday greetings. Every printout is unique and has my client's name. Highly recommended. A++
