Ever wonder which famous people share your birthday, birth sign, birth place or profession? The Famous Birthdays iPhone app will tell you. This Free Entertainment app features 30,000 profiles for famous comedians, athletes, actors, authors, musicians, military heroes, politicians, royalty, and more.
The Famous Birthdays iPhone app doesn’t seem to deliver all of the same content that you’ll find on their famousbirthdays.com website. However, you’ll find plenty to entertain you in this Free app because it’s quick and comes with easy-to-read profiles on the most well-known people around the world.
Each profile includes fun background information about the famous people featured. Along with basic birthday information, you’ll get a mini view of these people revealing things such as what they did before they were famous, their family life, and other famous people they’re associated with. There’s nothing very extensive nor earth shattering that I’ve come across, but it’s interesting and entertaining nonetheless. Did you know that American Idol Judge Randy Jackson was a musician in the bands for Santana and Jerry Garcia? And that he played bass for Madonna’s song, “Like a Prayer.”
The navigation in the Famous Birthdays app is fluid making it easy to jump into other category filters such as: Today’s Birthdays, Tomorrow’s Birthdays, 18 Years, Birth Place, Birth Sign, Professions, as well as the 12 different months of the year. The “18 Years” category is to find famous people born by decade, starting with 1900s. This app also gives you the opportunity to search for famous people by state and country too.
I was actually surprised by the 75+ professions listed A-Z, starting with architects all the way to wrestlers. Some interesting categories for me were: Teachers, Voice Actors, Saxophonists, Rappers, Political Wives, Pilots, Criminals, among others. It’s fun to peruse the Famous Birthdays app when you have a little extra time to kill. It could also be a good tool to help break the ice and start interesting conversations with others. Overall, Famous Birthdays is an entertaining app that gives a quick peek into the lives of famous people all over the world.
