  • The basic idea...

    "The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...
    ...The Open Source pages exist to make this case to the commercial world."    - Introduction to Open Source - www.opensource.org

    Details: Birthday Calendar Adapter

    market download Birthday Calendar Adapter
    Description
    Birthday Adapter provides birthdays, anniversaries, and other events from your contacts as a real calendar, which is displayed in your standard Android calendar application.
    To my knowledge, this is the first implementation that implements birthdays as a calendar displayed in Android's Calendar app.
    All other apps only displays their own lists but have no real integration!

    If you want to test this app, install the free version:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.birthdayadapter.free

    Known bugs
    ? Reminder do not work correctly on Android 2.3
    ? Devices with Android 4.1 and all version of Samsung Galaxy S4 have a bug which causes Birthday Adapter to disable after reboots. Please install additionally:
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.birthdayadapter.jb.workaround

    Features
    ? Total integration of birthdays, anniversaries, and other events from Android's contacts as a calendar
    ? Color picker for the birthday calendar
    ? Event Reminders
    ? Filter contact events based on account
