    I have had a Palm PDA for many years, and just recently got an HTC hero hoping to cut down on carrying 2 devices (phone & PDA).

    On of my favorite apps on the Palm was HappyDays, HappyDays - PalmGear.com: Download Palm Software for your Treo, Centro, Tungsten, LifeDrive or other Palm OS Device

    It was an app that let you put multiple events in a contacts custom field, and then view them in HappyDays and add them to your calendar, if you wanted.

    For example, for my brother's entry, I could put:
    * Kurt 1/1/1960
    * MaryLou *3/27/1960
    * Anniversary 4/25/1990
    * Child1 10/10/1992
    * Child2 11/20/1994

    Then, each line could be added to the calendar and would appear as:
    LastName, (whatever was after the *)

    I hope that makes sense...

    Is there an Android app that would do something similar? It's GREAT for families with kids to remember all their birthdays/anniversaries without having to have a separate contact entry for each.

    Thanks!

    You do not need ANY contact entries to add something to your calendar. That is how I do it. I set up each one with a reminder as appropriate. Phone calls get reminded day of, people I need to ship gifts to get rminded a week ahead as well. People who do texting get remonded at midnight so I can Happy Birthday them at midnight.

    What I wish is that I could link a calendar event to a contact.
