Datepedia sports a number of features:

- Keep track of personal events such as birthdays and anniveraries while on the go
- Choose from multiple export options to save Datepedia events to your BlackBerry calendar
- View event dates in List View or Calendar View
- Quickly search for any dates by category or name, and filter search by year for faster look-up
- Option for viewing all events or upcoming events only
The short and skinny of it is, Datepedia allows you to keep track of all of the generic holidays celebrated in your country, religious, civic and sporting – and even all three at the same time (Christmas/Boxing Day?). It also allows you to create your own events, which you can then save and export at any time (birthdays and anniversaries).
One of the most important features of this application is the option to export all of the events and holidays from any given category, whether it be country or type. This certainly comes in handy when you’re apt to forget events like Ontario’s ‘Family Day’ and other holidays that were invented relatively recently.
