Let's start this with a disclaimer: I do not believe there is significant meaning behind synthetic benchmarks in correlation with real-world use. We've seen, time and again, some high-scoring phones output questionable performance. In this regard, Samsung is one of the usual culprits, and despite having opted for some of the highest spec configurations on each and every one of their flagships, many of them still managed to lag.

Birthday SMS – Updated v0.5
Mohitsapru has created a birthday application that automatically sends a user-configurable sms on someone’s birthday. The application has been updated to v0.5.
After going through this forum i decided to build this app. This app is still a beta.
This basically allows a user to set up time when the device will wake up and check if there are any bdays (after 2 hrs) and if there is then it will send a user configurable message to that contact. This app also allows the user to add all his contacts bday from contact list to the calendar as an appointment. NOTE: This app will send messages to only those contacts who have been added thru this app.
Steps to use it:
1. Go to options and add contact Bdays.
2. Set a generic BDay wish message.
3. Set the scheduler default is 00:00Hrs
4. Options-> save and exit.
How It works:
1> Select all the Bday from the contacts in outlook contacts and add those in the calendar as an appointment.
2> User configures a birthday message to be sent thru the SMS to the BDay BOY/GIRL.
3> Select a scedule time at which the app will run and check if there are any bdays to be wished. (threshold time is 2hrs). This is done by creating a notification to save memory and battery.
4> After checking for any bdays the app will reschedule it self for the next day at the same time.
5> If there are bday in calendar it will send a SMS to that contact with ur wish message.
Continue on to the application thread.
