Description:

Candles is the answer to managing anniversaries and birthdays in iCal. Using a simple interface, Candles takes your birthdays and other dates from Address Book and allows you to add reminder events in iCal. Candles allows the creation of any number of alarms for each and every anniversary.

You'll never forget an Anniversary again!

Candles extracts all the birthdays and other dates from your Address Book for you to set reminders against. This provides the only way to view all your anniversaries in one place. With the ability to sort these anniversaries by name, calendar date or original date (i.e. with the year the event actually fell in), Candles provides the ability to visualise all your anniversaries.

Candles allows you to set as many Alarms as you need. Up to two Default Alarms can be set, which are then created for each of your Anniversaries. In addition, any number of additional alarms can be created for a specific Anniversary.

All Alarms have the same options and capabilities as in iCal, so you've got full control over when the alarm occurs, and what it does.

Once you're happy that you've set all the reminders that you need, you can tell Candles to update iCal with your details. Candles will then created detailed events for each Anniversary, and set the Alarms that you've told it to.

Handy! - I'm terrible about keeping track of birthdays, so this nifty app keeps me in line. As someone who didn't really use my mac's address book, before, the only learning curve was making sure to include "birthday" as one of the default entries in the address book's settings. Once that's set, Candles takes care of the rest! Thanks for the creation!

Candles - I ended up not liking this app because it didn't sync with my iCal. I has also synced with my Reminders app which I use all the time and really messed up it's function which I hate. I've tried removing the app and it's folders, but it must have some hidden files. Any attempts to contact Candles support just comes back to my own email address.

Review by Gma wanda

ages/not showing - It's hard to get the year to get the year to be accepted in address book. I'm not sure if that is a problem with address book or candles. The age doesn't always show on ical. That's what I want it to do. Its a good thing it was a free app. I'm still looking for something to help me keep up with grandkids birthdays and ages.

Doesn - Maybe it is because I am on a Mac. But it doesn't take any dates from my ical or address book, even if I make one of my defaults,"birthday". Very disappointed. Glad it was free - I will keep looking

Review by Honey Locust

Candles is an incredible help - As a former Palm user, I have been looking for something that would automatically populate the Ical on my calendar on my Imac and Iphone with birthdays and anniversaries from my contacts. Since Ical will only populate birthdays, and not anniversaries, from contacts, I was desperately looking for a solution. I have to remember a lot of people's anniversaries. I found this Candles application and it works like a charm. I turn off my birthdays calendar and only use Candles. It populates all birthdays and anniversaries into Ical and then my Iphone. Perfect! I previously tried another application which created a whole new calendar which was difficult to use. This candles app puts the dates in my existing Ical. This works for me since I really like the existing calendar on my Mac and Iphone. Thank you Candles!

Review by tiramisu53

Works for me! - My stock has really risen over the last year because I never forget anyone's birthday or anniversary. Customer support is very quick. My only wish is that it would analyze relationships and only put up one anniversary reminder for a couple. Thanks, Cocoa Sublime, for this great little app.
