Customer Reviews

A very good app (4 stars)
Occasions do everything needed pretty well, works fine for me, it's simple and well done. I should have given it 5 stars but it is, so far, not possible to choose a calendar if you have multiple, so I got doubles. It looks like thst this will be fixed in a future version, five stars coming soon... Worth definitely the price compared to free apps.

No longer works (2 stars)
I use to rely on this app's alerts to keep me updated on special occasions for impt people in my life. Haven't had an alert in months.
