Not simple to use, too simple for the picture selection!!!

Attracted to the feature of countdown to minutes and seconds as seen in the pictures. Purchased but found out selecting a year rather than this year is rather daunting as you will have to scroll all the way down from days and months to reach your desired year!!! I was already using other two beautifully designed free app for my short-term planning, only because either their widgets can’t be customised to display two different events that aren’t in time order, or when two widgets from the same app are being used there is only one same event shown on both widgets, rather than two whichever events you want. The widget is very poorly designed as it is only not ugly when you have at least 3 events lined up to display on it!!! If you only wanted a big event to take on the whole widget interface as a reminder, you would only end up having one event lined to the left taking only 1/3 of the whole widget, leaving the rest of 2/3 interface to be of simply ugly grey colour. And despite you could choose your own pictures for the events coming, the app’s very limited selection of the pictures and the fact you can’t event have a look in full screen size first are simply ridiculous!!!

UPDATE: Improved widget layout and full screen mode now available. 1 star review no longer valid.

I’m sorry you aren’t happy with the app. It’d have been nice for you to contact me directly first so I could look into dealing with some of the minor issues you’ve mentioned.

I’ve received a lot of other positive reviews and a one star here seems unnecessary particularly as a direct contact is available in the app.

The year problem is something I’ve mitigated by displaying the year seperately, unfortunately the picker component is provided by Apple, if you have a time you can’t have a year.

I suggest that you contact Apple for a full refund.

Nice design, simple, and to the point app. Very clean interface and does exactly what it says on the tin.

Great addition that you can search for an image for your event on the web from inside the app.

No adverts either which was a welcome surprise.

Thanks for the great review. Planning a lot of improvements soon!

Nice simple countdown app

Generally happy with the clarity and simplicity of the app.

Also, it would be helpful for the date selector to be able to jump ahead by years.

Crash problem in earlier version solved quickly.

Hi thanks for the review. Can you contact me in app and I can investigate the crash issue I can’t recreate on my side.
