Birthdays 2.0 has been submitted to Apple for (hopefully quick) approval on the App Store. New features are:
-- Support for Anniversaries and Other Dates in two new tabs. This means you don't have to add your friends' children as contacts - just add them as Other Dates under the adult friends' contact info. Use the child's name as the date label.
-- Greeting Cards! Now you can select from vintage Birthday, Anniversary or Other Occasion card images to attach to an email recipient.
-- SMS. In addition to Email and Call, you now also have the option of texting your loved ones.
-- Age in birthday list. Now you will see "Joe Sample... 33 in 32 days" right in the list without drilling down into the Details screen.
