Here is my new app: Birthday Adapter
One special thing about this: I released it for 1 € to Google Play, but it is licensed as GPLv3. When it arrives in F-Droid I will promote F-Droid as an alternative market to get it for free
Birthday Adapter provides birthdays, anniversaries, and other events from your contacts as a real calendar, which is displayed in your standard Android calendar application. To my knowledge, this is the first implementation that implements birthdays as a real calendar integrated in the Android calendar. All other apps only displays their own lists but have no real integration!
For some reason this is the only application Fdroid can’t let me install on my phone (geeksphone zero). Both versions available are greyed out. Are there any qualifications for it? Do I need to have any google apps installed? Or a registered account?
Okay my last statement was wrong Thanks to Marten Gajda I just released a new Version 1.2 for Android 2.2, 2.3, 3. The code was written by him and is highly experimental. When version 1.2 arrives in FDroid, please test it and report bugs when something goes wrong!
The “good side-effect” tetris4 mentions is what I try to achieve. I’ve got CM9 (4.04) without Gapps and the birthday-adapter but can’t enter any events in the calendar. It says I need a Google account.
