MeeBirthdays @ BB AppWorld
Current version searches through all contacts that can be fount in BB's address book - it does not matter from where did the contacts came from ( FB, Google, etc...)
But I think it's an interesting idea to make contacts filter by source
Yes. I know this bug. It's fixed long time ago, and am waiting more than a month for new version to be approved in the AppWorld.
It will be there, but I don't know when
p.s. there will be new features in the app in a new pending version...
A new 1.4 version is available at BB World.
New in this version:
- background contacts loading
- instant list updates on contacts information changing
- instatnt search
- fixed bug with 29 feb
- in-app payment added
Updates in 1.4.2 was small (and 1.4.3 fixes bug from 1.4.2):
- new toggle selection button
- and "age", wich can be added to events now is different for each next year.
As for options - you can see possible options on screenshot in AppWorld.

I have one issue with the app. Most of the birthdays/anniversaries are picked up correctly, i.e. correct name and of course date.
Only one contact does not work - unfortunately the contact of my partner. Instead of showing when it shows the birthday/anniversary the name of the Contact, MeeBirthdays shows the Skype name.
I have other contacts with Skype information as well but for them the correct name, i.e. the name I see in Contacts is show.
Any idea why for this one contact the Skype alias and not the name from Contacts is used?
MeeBirthdays uses First Name and Last Name of the contacts.
Try opening your contact and goto edit mode - than check name fields.
Also, if it's a combined (linked) contact - try to unlink it, than combine (link) again - and be sure to first select not Skype contact.
Or I just can add NickName field parsing to the app's logic.

But as I (after I unlinked the skype from the main contact) linked the skype contact explicitly in the contact edit mode, it worked
Cool - many thanks. Not only a nice and helpful app but also great support. To show my appreciation, I purchased the app (though I don't think I need the add. options)

Nice app. Kind of flakey, though.
1) currently, the Subject line entered by the app reads "John Smith (27)'s birthday" when adding age. I suggest "John Smith's Birthday (27)" -- capitalize Birthday and place age last. Easier on the eyes and grammatically correct.
2) anniversaries currently read: "John Smith (11)". I suggest "John Smith's Anniversary (11)"
3) All events should start on the event's date (including year), not this year.
