Default [APP][2.3+] Days - Stylish and Fast Birthday/Nameday reminder

I would like to show you my latest side project I am working on, on my leisure time! I was really fed up with all Birthday apps not meeting my needs, some missing features, other looking "Gingerbreadish" and weird, and others being too slow...

As a result Days was born!


Features:
Beautiful and easy to use
Displays upcoming birthdays and namedays
Send your wishes via call, text, mail or Facebook Message
The app's widget displays the upcoming birthdays and namedays, right from your home screen, without even having to open the app!
Import your Facebook contacts with a single tap! Sign in to Facebook, and see the birthdays and namedays of your Facebook Friends.
Greeklish support for contact names

Comments and suggestions are more than welcome!

The namedays features are currently supported only for Greek Orthodox names

Get it for Free from Google Play Store:

version 1.4.0 is now available for download!

The new version fetches your Facebook Friends images, and introduces more colorful icons for contacts with no set image.

Tried the app! Very promising! It's stylish and very fast! Thanks!

Can you please add an option to backup the contents to sdcard, and also a search function inside the app.

And why does the app needs to read my contacts? And make an option to download details from fb and then sign out. Now if I signout, I can no longer see the birthday list. Anyway promising app.

And I couldn't understand the name days, can you please make it in English. Thank you

The app needs access to your contacts in order to read their birthdays and display them in the list (given you have birthdays stored in your device's contacts ofc :P).

Since you get some goodies when you are logged in via Facebook, such as send a facebook message or open their wall, the app requires you to be logged in. But I'll look into your suggestion, and see what I can do!

Lastly, search is coming in a later update of the app. This and the ability to manually add entries into the app is two of the most important feature that need to be implemented!

Many thanks for the feedback!

PS: The app's namedays feature is currently supported only for Greek Orthodox names. How is the Play Store in terms of nameday apps for your country btw?

Sorry for the very late reply..

Oh, I thought it only uses fb to get the birthday list.

And I have no idea what name days means! well, I can simply disable it, so no problem there.

And please add an option to delete entries if possible, thank you

In Greece, we celebrate each person's name in a set day(or days) of the year, so each person "celebrates" two times a year, one for their birthday and one for their name day :P It's some sort of tradition here

I am currently working on redesigning the app to match all requested features and needs I've got so far. Luckily I started working on the redesign just about when the Material Design guidelines came out, so the app will get the Material Design treat soonish (as soon as I am done with my vacations that is)
