Here you can adjust the dates of the zodiac signs. As mentioned in the FAQ this is not a strict science and that's the reason why they are editable. Your changes get synchronized with other devices running HappyDayz! by using iCloud.

Mail and SMS/WhatsApp Templates

When you congratulate by Mail or SMS/WhatsApp and you use the same texts the most time, it's useful to define templates for it. This templates are used when you send a Mail or SMS/WhatsApp from within HappyDayz!.

Your templates get synchronized with other devices running HappyDayz! by using iCloud.


The following tags can be used in your template:

They must be used as they are with the brackets and can be inserted more easily by tapping them on the keyboard extension.


SMS/WhatsApp Template: "Hello [FIRSTNAME], I wish you a Happy Birthday!"

Now when you send a SMS/WhatsApp to one of your contacts (e.g. to Andy Smith) it replaces the tag [FIRSTNAME] with the first name of the contact (Andy).

Result: "Hello Andy, I wish you a Happy Birthday!"
