Birthday Apps That You Can Use To Surprise Someone

Since this day marks another anniversary of the time I came out kicking and screaming into God’s green Earth, I figured about featuring the top Android birthday apps. You can use these apps to keep track of your family and circle of friends’ birthdays as well as in coming up with ways to surprise them in their very special day.

Here are the birthday apps that I can recommend for you:

1. Happy Birthday Cake

No matter where you are, if sending a physical cake to your friend overseas is impossible or someone forgot to bring the cake during the occasion, you can always give them a virtual cake complete with a candle, confetti, people cheering and music in the background.

The candle can be blown which means extra fun for the celebrant, especially for the kids. The app is capable of supporting messaging through SMS, email or Facebook.

You can install this birthday app in your smartphone or tablet. Aside from birthdays, you can also use this for special occasions like anniversaries, New Year, Valentine’s Day and more.

So far, this app has a total of 3,810 downloads with an overall vote of 4.6 out of 5 stars from users. But the best thing about this app from Pigeon Software is that it comes for free.

2. Birthday Wish

A birthday wish, no matter how simple, hilarious, romantic or complex it is, it will never fail to brighten up someone’s day. So, if you are looking for the best way to get your message across, no matter where the celebrant is, you can use the Birthday Wish app.

The messaging supports SMS, Facebook and email sending. If for some reason you cannot contact the person during his or her very special day, you can just customize the app so it will send the message automatically to the individual’s phone or email for you. It requires an online connection if you wish to utilize the email or Facebook sending though.

If you are very forgetful of dates like me, this one will let you keep track of upcoming birthdays in advance. Thus, it will save you from the embarrassment of forgetting someone’s very special event.

Don’t worry about spending a dime on this cool app because it comes for free. From a total of 1,432 downloads, it garnered an average vote of 4.4 out of 5 stars.

3. Birthdays


The Birthdays app may not be as fancy as the other two we have featured, but users have praised the app for its reliable features. It easily imports the details of your friends in Facebook to your device so you can greet them through their wall using special templates. Although it does not provide automatic posting, you will surely love its user-friendly interface.

What makes this stand out from other birthday apps is that it features the calendars of different cultures too. It has the Islamic, Hebrew, Buddhist, Ethiopic and Coptic calendar systems.

Around 8,135 users have downloaded this app. Then, it gained 4.5 out of 5 stars with most users praising its functionality and simplicity.
