3. Birthday Calendar

This great utility app was voted the best app in its category by Digital Trends. It is a very simple app that gathers your friends’ birthdays neatly onto a file and allows you to see them well before the actual date.

It is a great way to keep track of when you need to be alert and ready to buy the cake.
