Windows Mobile Birthday to Calendar Application

This page is for people who have a Windows Mobile 5 or 6 device who dont / cant use outlook on their computer to create reminders from the birthday and anniversary parameters set on their contacts.

Simply install it to your PDA / SmartPhone and click the Update button to automatically create / update the appointments, it works by assigning each Appointment which it creates to a category called "From Contact", this way it can inteligently update them on the next update, so they dont need to be deleted and recreated everytime.

NOTE: This program uses the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 3.5, if you dont already have it installed you can get it here:
