I received many users emails or comments about the new ‘read contacts’ permission required by Pure calendar and Pure Grid calendar to read birthdays from the phone contact book.
I understand your concern, and I decided to export this new feature to a plugin to remove this permission.
‘Birthdays for Pure widgets’ plugin is now available on the market.
His goal is to extract the birthdays from the contact book, and provide them to Pure widgets.
With this plugin, the native Pure calendar and Pure Grid calendar widgets doesn’t require the ‘Read contacts’ permission anymore.
How to display your contact birthdays ?
-> install the ‘Birthdays for Pure widgets’ plugin from the Android Market
-> enter the widget configuration panel
-> go to agenda/calendar tab
-> press ‘select calendars’ button
-> enable the ‘[Contacts] Birthdays’ calendar.
