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.
