Hi, my name is Dawit, and I’m the creative director behind Auto Birthday. Birthday calendars are awesome little apps we love to use almost everyday, but most of them are dull. We want something a bit more special. An app with personality. With character.
That’s why we made Auto, a robotic gift box that flies to your assistance. Auto is loyal, cheerful and lively. He will remind you of any upcoming birthdays and talk to you in a friendly manner.
Everyone can use a birthday app. We bring fun to that experience!

That’s right, Auto needs your help.
Auto Birthday was very popular in Thailand, reaching the Top 8 spot for Free Lifestyle apps on the Apple App Store. It didn’t enjoy the same level of success overseas though, and we don’t have enough funds to promote it further. We’d also love to see Auto on the iPad.
Since we’re in Thailand, all this can happen with little money. For just a modest sum of $1000, we can fund the development of the iPad version, improve Auto’s rough edges and better promote the app worldwide. This work should take a month to complete.
The following is what we plan to do:
- Redo all graphics for the iPad Retina display. We already prepared a Macbook Pro for our graphics designer, since her very old white Macbook is not powerful enough for the task. These images will be huge!
- Add code to support the iPad.
- Fix bugs. For example, a couple of users reported that sometimes their Facebook connection breaks down for some unknown reason. We want to iron out all these problems.
- Promote the app worldwide using Google and Facebook ads.
If we exceed our goal by $1000, we would further incorporate the character Auto into more parts of the app. For example, on the calendar page, he would fly and land on the current date. When picking a card, he could sail in and grab it. Not only that, we also want Auto to recognize your family and relationships, and highlight those especially important birthdays. Adding these little touches will make the app more fun to use! Doing all this would take a additional month after the iPad version.
We’re a team of close family and friends with a passion for making cute apps. We call ourselves Bottled Chubbies, since we are like big ideas ready to explode from a bottle of shaken soda pop. Yeah, I know it’s cheeky. At least, that’s what we’re going for. We’re not quite there yet!

Auto Birthday is our third published app. Here are some of our past works:
Thank you for taking the time to read this. We really appreciate your interest. If you like Auto, but don’t feel like contributing, you can help out in other ways. Introduce him to your family and friends. Spread the word! A few downloads here and there matters a lot. Don’t forget that the app is free!
Let’s launch Auto into the skies! Yeah!
