Release 4 - Version 1.2

What's new:

1) If the birthday has already passed, I show what day the birthday will be on next year as well as what day the birthday was on this year so you can begin your planning early!

What was fixed:
Several bugs were brought to my attention. Here is an overview of what was fixed:

1) Fixed bug (force close) when you select to delete a birthday after long pressing on the birthday that you wish to delete.

2) Fixed bug where if the birthday had already passed, the birthday view dialog would accurately represent the next time you would be notified.

3) Fixed bug where it would say that a birthday had passed this year when the date was clearly later on in the year.

Release 3 - 1.01

This update just removes redundancies in the code noticed after publishing the last update. No major changes. See previous post for link to marketplace.


Release 2 - Version 1.1

It didn't take long for bugs to arise (who would have thunk it :-) ). Here's a summary of what changed:

1) The notification information on the birthday information screen (the dialog that comes up after you click on a birthday) now displays the correct notification date and time.

2) The notification time displayed on the same dialog now displays minutes correctly. It was showing 4:4 for 4:04.

3) The listview for the birthday list actually scrolls now - so if the number of entries in your list exceeds the amount of space it takes to display them, you are able to scroll to see the rest. Minor oversight.

This is it for now. Please continue to report bugs if you come across them!

Release 1 - Version 1.0

The point of this application was to do something productive instead of playing Modern Warfare II for hours on end without anything to show for it. I like games just as much as the next aspiring computer scientist but it is nearly time to find a job and jump into the bane that is the real world.

Here is a description of this application as well as possible future enhancements:

Everyone has trouble keeping track of birthdays - this much i can certainly attest to. Currently, Birthday Organizer (BO) will allow you to keep track of not only birth dates, but gift ideas as well as various other information about a particular person. You can sort my name or date to find an entry quickly and easily. BO also has options to set birthday reminders for different times. You can be notified of an upcoming birthday a week before, a day before, and/or the day of someone's birthday.

Right now, the picture for each entry is a static thing. I've made provisions for tying this app to the users contact list. Thus being able to send an email/sms/mms or whatever to someone directly from Birthday Organizer.

I welcome criticism, but realize i'm not a professional by trade at the moment and that this was simply a summer project created by an undergraduate student. So please, send an email or comment on this post with either praises or suggestions!
