    Hi @all,

    just joined on this forum, and already my first ask here...)
    I got the wildfire S android 2.3.3, and I am looking for an app that reminds me for birthday.
    I saw, in the market are a lots of apps.
    I am looking for an app, that reminds me on the android agenda and calendar, and other events as well.

    just to open the android calendar and see all events and birthday at once...

    is there some app like that?
    I am speaking about outlook contact....

    thanks

    You can automatically synchronize your calendar and/or contacts between Outlook and your Android device, for free, without adding any 3rd party apps or software using the method at this link. Any birthdays that you have in Outlook calendar will automatically be synchronized with your built-in Android calendar app.

    Hi, and thanks for answer.

    what I mean is, that I put the birthday directly on the contacts, and if I am away and I make a new contact with birthday, this should then appear on the calendar.

    is there a way for that? without the calendar from outook?

    thanks

    Using the Hotmail solution above, if you add a birthday to a contact in Outlook, it will automatically appear on your Hotmail calendar in Android. But I don't think you can add a birthday to a contact card on the stock Android app (whether or not it's a Hotmail, or a Gmail contact).

    You can add birthdays, anniversaries etc to your google contacts via the gmail web page and then synching them to your HD adds them to your device.

    I get automatic calendar notifications via Clear Calendar of what's in my stock/gmail calemder
