The truest outstanding app! 😝


I think that this app is astonishing because you can count down how long it is until your favourite events. Also it is useful when you want to know how many days until ... without looking on google - which sometimes don’t give you the correct answer- or safari . I really recommend this app for various reasons and so it deserves the trophy of most useful app in the whole world of history . 5 stars and lets be honest I could give it LOADS more than what you can give it because 1: you can do any event you want to count down to ,2: you can type in any year you wish to count down till , 3: it is just a brilliant app to get and plus it is free so i recommend people to download countdown and start counting down different peoples events . 😊

👏 Wow, what a review! 😁 Thank you!

Amazing but missing one thing...

Fused Roots

This app is amazing, from the slick interface to the colour coding of each countdown. It makes it really easy to be excited as the days reduce to your special dates. One thing I would recommend is that the app gives periodic notifications to the home screen reminding us that we have ‘x’ amount of days left rather than having to go into the app to see. This would make me give a 5 star rating but nonetheless it’s absolutely amazing and has helped me out a lot so far. Job well done to everyone!

Thanks for the review 👍 The next version of the app will have more options for notifications.

I wish it could sync with the calendar


I great app to follow events and not to forget but, if you are using a calendar ald like I do, you don’t want to check two apps as it takes much longer and risks forgetting events. I wish this app could create events on the calendar as well, so instead of going into the app every day to see if there is an event coming up, you could be comfortable thinking that the event will appear on your calendar and therefore a reminder will come through. This is the big missing point of this app.

Thank you for the suggestion, I will add this to our feature requests list for consideration for the next major release of the app.

Thank you.
