this app is still a beta(plz test)
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.
XDA member binary64 has developed a tool to import the facebook details to your outlook contacts,
so now you can get bdays for your contacts configured through facebook...
Please test and let me know if there are any problems.
To check for logs please find the log file in the install location/BDaySMS/log.msg (It contains success messages, Contact name to whom it has sent the message and error messages.)
If you have installed the previous version(before v.3) please copy clean.zip and run it before you install the updated version. Clean.exe will clean the bday appointments created by the BDaySMS app from the calendar. It will not effect your other appointments.
Fixed some crashes and bugs.
Gives another option in menu to clean bdays appointments created by this app.
It creates bday appointments under the category "SMSBIRTHDAYS" earlier it was "BIRTHDAYS"
Before v.3 There was a crash every time a bday sms was sent. This has been fixed. PLZ take the new cab.
UPDATES FOR v0.3
1. User can now set a custom message with option to add name.
2. Clear Schedule now works, removes the schedule from device.
NOTE: To add name of the person click add name button, this will insert a string in the message that will be replaced with the Contacts Nick Name or first name (if user has no nick name then it will take first name), So for your contacts please make sure that you have a correct Nick name or a First Name.
