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.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5. To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was criticized heavily for feeling more like a toy, rather than a premium flagship...
