Very helpful in my case!

Daniel from the Bible :)

So I was constantly struggling to find an effective and efficient way to keep track of my busy recovery schedule especially since it was stuff with tons of appointments and just family activities... The fact that I am recovering from a Traumatic Brain Injury my memory has been a bit weaker than before. I lost big portions of memory due to the fact that pieces of my brain were damaged resulting in these pieces getting removed! In this case I was looking for a great way to Lee track of my schedule! Thank God that this app was free and so good! Can’t complain because I tried multiple others which always lacked an aspect this one presents! Let’s just say this app is “in it to win it”! Give it a shot! 👌😁

very 😄 pleased


this app is pretty cool , can’t wait to go on vacation in 19 days 3 hrs 28 minuets and 8 seconds. wish you had an option to change the apps icon to whatever , instead of looking at your phone and seeing a picture of a star with a clock in a blue background that says Countdown , the user could change it to a recent selfie or a picture of the ocean 🌊 to indicate vacation or holiday
and click on the myVacationcountdown app
(you should be able to change the name too). i know it is a challenge but i think that it would make your rates and reviews higher and then more people will download the app. But that’s my opinion i don’t think you can actually do that but it’s ok . over all the app is pretty great.

What the heck? *edited*


I downloaded this app today to replace one that no longer works with the new IOS. I thought it was going to be a good replacement, but after downloading and adding about 12 events with personalized wallpaper (from photos on my iPad) I went in later in the day and all the photos that I chose to add as wall paper on my events were gone! They were not in the new events nor were they in the wall paper choice area of the app! Not a good start, what the heck is going on?
**edited to add - fast response from the developer. Fixed the problem with an update to the app. The library works fine now. My added wallpaper is showing up and staying in the library. Thanks for the assistance!

Developer Response

Hello slickpaw, A recent update (2.6.3) should correct the wallpaper issue and the photos you’ve tried to add should reappear in the updated version. I apologize for this bug. Best Regards, Joe
