You even forgot Christmas day?,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TKWeek (App)An OK concept but my calendar that I sync with already does most of this. My existing calendar on my computer adds in the American holidays or I can select which ethnic or country holidays I want to show including multiple selections. This would have been a nice feature for this program. In addition I have already programmed in the birthdays of my family and friends so I don't need to share my contact data.
If you want more information about a holiday or a date this app simply links you to the Wikipedia web site that I could have gone to without this app. There are multiple sites that will provide the history of a date as well as a list of local upcoming events you might like to attend. If I have a WIFI to reach Wikipedia then I have one to go to a better site. If you only going to provide a link to a web site like Wikipedia then you should allow the user to add in the web address of the site they would rather visit.
Why do I care which months have Friday the 13th ? You left out 12 holidays or events that American's recognize including Christmas but you count the days on the year that are on Friday the 13TH? Overall I found that while this app seems to somewhat work, the data that I get from it is incomplete and/or linked to another site. You should also list the following American events:
* Flag Day June 14th
* Father's Day June 17th
* Labor Day September 3rd
* Columbus Day October 8th
* Election Day November 6th
* Veteran's day November 11th
* Christmas December 25th
* Martin Luther King Day
* Ground Hog Day February
* Lincoln's Birthday February 12
* President's Day February
* St Patrick's Day March
How could you forget Christmas? 1 Star!
