Best Countdown


I used to be in love with another countdown from a developer that no longer has the app out and for the life of me, I cannot seem to transfer that app over to my new devices. After countless of hours of trying to find a simple yet effective app, this did the job! I paid the extra dollar to remove ads even though it didn't really bother me but I figure it helps the developer in some way to maybe add a few features like changing the font or color of each background. Either way, best countdown out there.

Best Countdown Widget!


I 100% recommend this countdown widget app to anyone looking to keep track of important dates! The design is simple yet effective and the app is extremely easy to use. I love that my countdowns are displayed as a widget on my iPhone for quick and effortless viewing! I also love the fact it's Apple Watch compatible and I can add it as a complication so I can see my countdown with a glance at my wrist! The lists feature is great for organizing and iCloud sync allows me to manage my countdowns across devices!! My favorite countdown app out there by far!

Great UI - easy to track events


I have tried multiple apps that track events until / after completion and this app by far have the best UI. The breakdown of list make it easy to quickly glance which event belong to which list.

My only recommendation is to allow tracking of individual event. For example: I have event ABC that is due in 3 days. After 3 days, I want to track the same event that will be due in 6 days. I should be able to see in ABC that there was 1 past event and 1 coming up.
