Birthday Reminder to make your life easier

The most effective way to remember your wife’s birthday is to forget it once. In some cases, very simple software utilities can improve significantly daily life, reduce amount of stress and tension. For example, free portable application Birthday Reminder will do exactly, what you can imagine according to its clear title.

Birthday reminder will alert you to birthdays you need to remember, in advance of those dates.

The software is easy to configure. Clicking the Options button allows you to manage the birthdays, choose how far in advance you want to be reminded for each, which icon you’d like to use for that person, and set other options.

You’ll ask is that is all software can do for you? Yes, it is. Definitely, this feature can be setup as part of the regular reminder program, or part of the email program (Outlook, for example) operations. But, do we really need to mix all our appointments and dates to remember at the same location? I prefer to keep birthdays separate. Especially, since the software is very small, fast, does not need to be installed, and can be easily carried on USB drive.
