About iOS Apps of the Day
iOS has over 600,000 apps. With so many apps out there, app discovery (aka finding new and useful apps) is extremely difficult. With our iOS Apps of the Day initiative, dotTech aims to change that. Everyday we post three apps, allowing our readers to discover new apps, daily. Enjoy! [Subscribe to our iOS section to never miss an article: RSS Feed | E-mail]

iHappyDays Pro helps keep track of all the birthdays you can’t seem to remember. This app has the capability to import your contact list so you won’t have to key in everyone individually. It also displays the days remaining until the birthday or anniversary is about to happen. This will also remind you your friend’s or family’s birthday in the event you might have the chance to forget about it.

Blacklist for iPhone – Unwanted Call Blocker is an app that will block the incoming calls that you don’t want to receive. You have the option to block any caller coming in whether it is a friend who won’t leave you alone to your ex and even that annoying telemarketer. You can switch the sound off for the blocked incoming calls, and all blocked numbers are stored in a log you can browse. You also have the option of installing a ringtone just for the numbers listed in the app. New telephone numbers can be automatically listed in the database. You not only have the option of blocking incoming calls, but you can also block the SMS as well so you can be totally left alone from those unwanted texts as well.
