Hot! Revamp for Facebook Happy Birthday Songs iPhone App

  • Sharebar

Happy Birthday is probably the most posted type of message on Facebook and it’s easy for individual messages to be lost in theicon crowd. Happy Birthday Songs is a neat little app from App-Easy that lets its users post a birthday song message to their Facebook friends.  The version of the traditional birthday song that it plays was sung by professional singer, Danny Rhodes, and is in the attractive style of a barber-shop rendition. 

The Happy Birthday Songs app was developed originally two years ago but the recent revamp of Facebook’s development kit and the introduction of ‘stories’ has seen App-Easy re-develop this app from scratch.  These new Facebook stories which can have objects and actions, is part of the Open Graph development model and now have to be approved by the Facebook team before theyappeasy-page can be used within apps, to make sure they are posting within the Facebook principles for posting and tagging.

“We are a company that likes to make good use of IT. Our developers are spread far and wide and we use people for their skills rather than their proximity to our base.” Jean Montgomery, development manager, said. “There are so many good online collaboration tools out there that let teams keep in touch in real time and that let you pay on demand. We’ve actually tried a few different ones, but we’re now using Central Desktop as that seems to give us the best fit for our needs. We can represent our project plans so the whole team can see what’s happening, share design documents amongst the developers and store code for re-use.”

Our little app has grown in popularity but one of the problems with an app that relies on another site, like Facebook, is it’s largely out of our control when changes happen.  Throughout the short lifetime of this app, alone, there have been at least 3 changes to the Facebook environment that have caused  the app to simply stop working and, apart from the last major change, there is little notice!

The revised version of the app went on sale in the App Store early in May and it sells at $0.99/£0.69.
