Best Date of Birth Widget1 min read


I’m often looking for great user experiences and I recently came across a great date of birth picker while registering for Mogo. Often date of birth forms separate the day, month and year and start from today’s date. This means going back 20+ users for most adults register for a service.

This DOB picker starts off 20+ years back and allows you to select the year first:

Then it let’s you select your month:

And finally your birthday in a nice calendar format:

You can see the whole experience in the following animated gif:
