Third review: Raising back to 4 stars as the developers FINALLY listened to the negative feedback regarding the icon and name change and allowed users to chose the app icon they wished. Now if they allowed the cake icon to be labeled B-Days as it was before the upgrade to “hip” it would get 5 stars from me. I still fail to see what they hoped to gain by their initial action and obstinate refusal to listen to the criticism of their users. Still the best B-Day app with unique gift suggestions. Second review: Lowering my rating another star as the developer doesn’t seem to lister to users. Click on “Most recent” reviews and the majority complain about the icon/name change. I think it’s time for a change. There is Birthday Reminder Pro+ on the App Store. Less money and a higher rating...and the icon has balloons and the word “Birthdays” on it. First review: The app icon of a B-Day cake and candle made sense....the icon of a winking hippopotamus with “hip.” under it does not. And the need to call oneself hip displays a lack of hipness. I’m dropping a star because of the icon change. That said... It is the best birthday app I’ve used or seen. And the gift suggestions the app offers are very “hip.” It removes the step of using a search engine for “unique and useful gifts with a range of prices.” Change the app icon and keep up the good work.
Bug and Another Issue
There is a slight bug. If you expect the reminder to occur right at midnight that is not happening. During the months of Jan, Feb, Nov and Dec the reminder indicates 1 hour later than if the birthday was one of the other remaining months. Also, why would it not allow future dates? For example, if i am adding in a retirement date as my special day I cannot do it since I cannot go beyond 2018. Or what if I want to make my daughter's graduation in 4 years a special date to remember? It would be nice also if the days to someone's birthday allows you to select not just 61 days but 2 months - 1 day. Should be an option to make this app better.
This app was a fine replacement for my old birthday reminders app that was apparently abandoned by its developers—right up until the time the developers had the utterly boneheaded notion to change both the name and the icon. Make no mistake, the app still works fine, but when you’re looking through page after page of your iOS apps looking for the one with the list of upcoming birthdays, a cartoon hippo head does NOT connote that meaning. Whoever in marketing came up with this idea and whoever in management approved it should be fired for sheer incompetence. Apple is about “just works.” Neither the name nor the iconography “just works” anymore, making this the antithesis of a good product for the Apple ecosphere.
Hi, Big fan of the app. I think I found a bug I wanted to share. To be specific, once I search a friend’s name on the list of names I’ve imported from from FB cal, and click the checkbox, and click “Done”, the “Add” button remains unclickable. Only after I try clicking a random birthday below and unclicking does the add button reappear. I’m wondering if this is only an iPhone 7 problem. Furthermore, the app would be greatly enhanced if you guys could somehow solve the problem of “move the FB birthday cal link to your phone in any way” because it really impacts the UX the way it is (although I know theres not a currently available mobile solution to access the .ics file). But thought I’d share these! Finally, the Contact Us button doesn’t work for “send”. Wish it was easier to contact for feedback!
Better than most B-day reminder apps
This app will either pull from contacts (but I don’t have b-days in contacts), or allow your individual b-day input (perfect for me)- your choice. Unlike many apps, it actually notifies you that a birthday is impending. Many others only let you know if you check them regularly. I love it!
App works. I would like to see the ability to just add ONE entry from my contacts apps to the list of birthdays. If I add the contacts list, it adds ALL of them, THEN I have to delete the majority. I need the capability to add only ONE from contacts that pull data by keying in name. I work with customers who change monthly. Therefore, the reason why I only need access to certain name’s data without having to manually key it if it’s not showing in the list. Thanks.
Average at best
This app is not free so don’t believe what you read. My previous birthday app worked great except the developer got greedy so out it went. Now hip is here. After installing the app it only captured about a third of the info from my contacts. The remaining info I had to manually enter. The reminders work about half the time. No phone support so you’re at the mercy of email. And it gets tiring to be told that I didn’t set it up correctly. Or I should have done it this way and not that way. There are no instructions on the use of this app. Carefully adding birthdays and anniversaries to iCal works just as well.
Day Stars was a much better app, which the developers abandoned to start this one. It is not supported anymore and you can’t find it on App Store. Hip cuts off the top portion of the thumbnail in the card, in most of the cases it’s the persons head. The birthday card wording is weird, this one says “celebrates 16 years” instead of “turned 16 today” in Day Stars. There is a big white stamp in the bottom in hip, instead of a watermark of Day Stars. I still use my Day Star app even its still has some bugs, like you can’t save the birthday reminder card. While improvement is always welcomed but it should be in the right direction.
Just a “Reminder” in a Calendar Template
The app does exactly what it says: it reminds you simply of birthdays. Nothing more. Nothing less. What’s annoying is that it offers other options (anniversaries, for example)but when you click on them, you’re told that you must upgrade to a pay service. Why? You already have ad strips ACROSS THE FACE OF MY IPHONE! So, anyway...if you want a simple birthday reminder—and don’t want to use “Reminders” in your iPhone, I guess I’d give it a 50/50.
The App. That help me remember my family’s birthdays and anniversaries.
I love this app.! It’s very helpful and reminds me of my families birthday’s and anniversaries and with my brain I need an app. like this that can remind me of theses upcoming events. Thank you for this Hippo app. reminder it is the best I could ever have on my iPhone! Don’t change a thing on this app. I like it just the way it is. 👍🏼👍🏼😊
I like it!
It’s pretty handy! It’s helping me remember peoples birthdates and anniversaries. I like that I can text them with some unique stock images. I also really like the fact that it will upload the information from my contacts very easily! I needed something like this!
I was upset that the icon was changed and the app title was renamed as well. After looking at the settings I was able to switch the icon back but no settings to switch the app title back. I really don’t know the title hip for my app to track birthdays. Why don’t you keep the old version and just create a new app with all your new features. Some just want the simple app that just does one thing and that is track birthdays and nothing else. No social stuff. No online logging. It’s time for me to switch to another birthday app.
Good app but would like to see additions
Please add anniversaries Thank you for adding anniversaries! Just one more thing to make it perfect, please let the year being celebrated show when the full wedding date is entered, like birthdays with birth year entered show how old the person will be
Fantastic App and Superb Customer Service
I’ve had this App for quite some time now and I started using it more and more everyday. It’s simply awesome app for birthdays and other important occasions you don’t want to miss. The UI is very user friendly and professional. The app is simply awesome. Not to forget the quick and fabulous customer support. They are very responsive when you have an issue. Also the app is frequently updated to give you better experience overall. Highly recommend you try this app. Thanks
Like the app, hate the changed look
The hippo is dumb. And even dumber that you can't change it back to the cake unless you upgrade. Doesn't even look like a birthday app anymore which I don't like. Loved it the other way. It's obviously great for the reminders and all, but I know every time I look at the app it'll bug me.
