Countdown is a great clarifier

This app is a great help keeping track of all the incoming tasks, appointments, the stuff of Life. I find that knowing with a glance how much time remains for multiple calendar events to occur is very helpful in organizing my time. Countdown does a good job of displaying in time not only what's coming at the user but also what has whizzed past us. For example, someone has promised a report on a certain date. It doesn't arrive. By glancing at Countdown you know how many days late that report is. It is easy to revise any aspect of a Countdown entry (date, time, title, etc). I like how I can easily bring in calendar entries into Countdown. I wish it were just as easy to transfer entries from this app to my calendar. The process of setting up reminders is a bit cumbersome. That screen that tells us we don't have any reminders set up seems like an extra step to tap through. Can the amount of taps necessary to create a reminders be reduced? Can a sequence of reminders that I use over and over be saved and reused? "When information brushes against information the results are startling and effective (McLuhan)." Therefore the more connectivity the better. Mr developer, surprise us with new capabilities. Countdown is a good app that does the job but could be great. Thank you.

I love this and find many uses for it.

I’ve been using this little marvel for 3 years, 1 month, 0 weeks, 2 days, 22 hours, 6 minutes and 52 seconds and counting, and it’s always performed beautifully (first on iPhone 4s and now on iPhone X).
I use it to count down the time until future events, like next week’s dental appointment and my hundredth birthday decades from now.
I also use it to count the time “up” since past events, such as my birth and last week’s viewing of a certain film.
Why document a trivial event?
Because seeing exactly how time flies is a profoundly useful thing. I’ve kept journals since 1984, and years ago they taught me that seeing how long ago some event was makes life more precious. Last week’s movie isn’t important by itself, but some day I might see just how far in the distant past that was, and it will remind me to seize the day.
The functionality in this is very impressive; for each entry you make you’re given a wide range of options, and you can always edit them no matter how much time has past since an entry was made.
I love being able to set an alert for a future notification that a certain length of time has past. That’s very handy.
Highly recommended!

Great app, needs multi user sync

With all of the millions of apps in the AppStore, I cannot find an app that lets me share a days since counter with my wife. I want the ability to have a list of things that we do around the house that we need to be reminded to do. For example, how long has it been since we last changed the sheets on the bed? We many times lose count and the sheets can stay on the bed for 6 weeks instead of us both being reminded to do it every 2 weeks. We'd also like the ability to very quickly reset the counter with a swipe, just like this app has. This app has so much potential, and once you can sync counters across multiple users' devices, this will be the app I have been searching for!
