Description:Tired of your calendar being cluttered with birthdays? Tired of missing the ones that count? Today's Birthdays is the app for you.
**Update 6/1/19: Unfortunately, it appears Facebook removed support for the Birthdays Calendar Subscription. We encourage users to contact Facebook directly if they would like to see them restore this functionality. All other functionality, including support for Google's Birthdays, remains unaffected.**
Today's Birthdays syncs together your calendars and contacts to create a single, go-to app for birthdays.
Declutter your Calendar app once and for all by hiding the birthday calendar; Today's Birthdays will keep track of them for you. Set personal birthday alerts to remind you in advance of an upcoming birthday. Add the widget to your notification screen to never miss today's birthdays again!
Today's Birthdays supports all calendars and countless birthday services, including your contacts, Facebook, and Google! To add a birthday to Today's Birthdays, simply add the birthday to your contacts. You can also add all the birthdays of your Facebook or Google friends by adding the Facebook Birthdays Calendar or Google Birthdays Calendar to the Calendar app! These services are supported through what is called "Calendar Subscriptions." Services such as Google and Facebook provide Calendars that you can subscribe to that contain all of your friends' birthdays. Simply subscribe to those Calendars from your iOS Calendars app and they are fully compatible with Today's Birthdays!
**Today's Birthdays will never transmit any of your contact or calendar information from your device. Ever. Period. Your data stays on your device and your device only. We know, we like privacy too.**
