To Sync Countdown:
-Purchase the sync upgrade on both devices (You'll only be charged once.)
-Start Countdown on both devices.
-On both devices touch the Settings button at the bottom of the Categories list.
-Make sure that the Sync Group is the same on both devices (watch out for white space :)
-On both devices touch the Synchronize row button.
-In the Synchronize screen, when a device becomes available touch it to begin syncing. (Generally you only need to touch the device row on one of the devices. Touching both will start two synchronization actions.)

At this point the device row should move to the connecting state.
After some waiting there, the device will move to a transferring state and a blue progress bar will signal when the process is over.
From inside the Synchronization view you could conduct sync's with multiple devices.

When you're finished, press the done button at the top right.

Great Tool!


Very organized and pleasant to look at.

Some things that you could do to improve:

Add more background pictures like a car or keys for someone's 16th birthday, a house for a moving date, and beer/wine bottles for someone's 21st birthday. You could also include pictures like Big Ben, Statue of Liberty, and the Egyptian Pyramids for specific vacations.

Another countdown form could be a thermometer-like tube representing the time between when you created the countdown and when the countdown finishes. The tube fills up closer and closer to the top. Or the same kind of thing but with an hourglass.

Just right


Love the layout...simple design and easy to see. Not cheesy. Do wish you could swipe through full-page countdowns or something instead of clicking to enlarge. Otherwise, pictures look cool, all modes of counting (month day second etc) and pictures even make a neat translucent background for full-page format. Like that you can personalize with your own cropped pictures. Love countdowns and always checking what you're looking forward to!



Countdown is perfect for the task at hand. Whether counting down or up you'll know just how far you have to go or how far you've come. Great for trips and major events like graduations, weddings, retirements. But also good for smaller things like keeping track of how long it's been since you've changed the kitty litter. Notifications was a wonderful addition. I've lost track of how many times I've recommended this app.
