The easiest, most beautiful countdown app for iPhone.
"I've tinkered with other Countdown apps...this is by far the best." - ★★★★★
"A smart interface that absolutely any Apple user would love." - ★★★★★
• Count down to any date by day, weekday, week, month, or year.
• Count up from dates in the past.
• Mail countdowns to other Countdown Calendar users to let them know about important dates.
• Add hyperlinks and notes to countdowns to provide additional background info.
• Download from a central repository of countdowns: movie release dates, sporting events, important dates in Apple history...
• Submit your countdowns to the central repository to share them with others!
What's New in Version 1.5
• Notifications! They appear at 8:30am on the day when countdowns go into their "alert" period (default: 7 days before the target day, but it's adjustable.)
• Badge number showing how many countdowns are in their alert period.
• Fix to Retina Springboard icon.
This is a good reminder app with two rather interesting limitations:
1. Reminders are good for you as well as others. When you email someone a reminder from this app, I expected to send a wonderful graphic with the remaining days in it. Instead, the recipient can't view it. They receive a note to buy the app.
2. The reminder is available in a number of ways - days, weeks, months. When the reminder is 8 months & 2 weeks, it is presented as 8.5 months. A better option would be months and weeks.
These two enhancements would improve the functionality significantly.
Needs a major speed boost. Plain and simple, the use of this app is good for a glancing countdown view - but ... it takes ... a while ... to start-up ... the app. Also would be nice to not kill music playing when scrolling the different remaining measures (day, week, month...)
I tried the other free and 99 cent apps and this one finally delivered what I was expecting without compromise. Very professional interface and love the app icon ("25 days left"- please don't modify it).
