Software Milestone Reminder (2.0.2)

Formerly Released As: Birthday Reminder (1.2.3)



Feedback About About
Milestone Reminder is a utility to manage and organize family's, friend's and associate's birthdays, anniversaries, and other dates. Seamlessly integrates with Address Book and iCal. Check out the online version of the help documentation for more information.

Birthday Reminder was the original name of the application. It has been superseded by Milestone Reminder. Milestone Reminder supports all dates contained in your Address Book, not only birthdays.

Thanks to everyone for all the feedback, feature requests and especially problem reports! The application works with Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6.X), Leopard (OS X 10.5.X), Tiger (OS X 10.4.X), Panther (OS X 10.3.X), and Jaguar (OS X 10.2.X). Please let me know if you encounter any problems using Milestone Reminder or Birthday Reminder by sending feedback.

I am interested in making localizations of this application. If you are interested in converting some english text strings to your native text in exchange for a free license, please contact me. Don't worry, no programming knowledge is required. I would just need to know what language(s) you are interested in doing. If someone else is not doing that conversion already, I will send you the strings to convert. Currently, I have German and French conversions in the works. The English & Swedish localizations are currently available.
