I saw that already all birthdays of my contacts are displayed in the calendar,great! An improvement however would be if you could change the supject of the calendar entry with the actual age. E.g. ' David(45)' in the topic/subject. So you could see the age at a glance without opening the calendar entry .

I don't know, if I wouldn't care enough for the person to do the math myself, I probably don't care for the exact age either.

Downvote from me. Nothing useful for me, possibly a bit of annoyance when people notice I see their age right away on the screen, so I'd prefer sailors to focus on other items.

Showing the age would require birth year to be correct for all contacts, or possibility to set it undefined. For manually added birthdays, I've myself often just changed the year to some random value. Haven't cared or haven't necessarily even known the right one.

Like in calendar feed in harmattan the kind of display could be switched on/off or customized. To calculate the age for the subject is a side effect if a birthday is set - so no problem for calculation. I would say this would have something of a Quick-Win.

I like this idea.
