Ratings and Reviews
This app does exactly what I wanted. The user interface is clean and intuitive, and I like the fact that it’s simple.
I voluntarily paid the $0.99 to unlock the full version, because I appreciate that the author doesn’t nag you or bombard you with annoying advertisements.
Just so you know, unlocking the iOS version doesn’t appear to extend to the macOS version, so if you want both to take advantage of iCloud sync, it will cost you two purchases, not one. Given the fact that the combined price is less than what I spend on a coffee from Starbucks, I don’t consider that a big deal.
Solid and very useful across all my iOS and macOS devices.
Easy to use. Syncs well across all my iOS and macOS devices. Useful widgets across all those devices.
I find it’s very motivating to see the countdown to events for which some form of preparation is necessary. This app makes me aware of the vanishing time and the need to get things done - a real help for someone as prone to procrastination as I am.
Easily worth the 99¢ to unlock the full version.
App does not work across all iOS devices as advertised in full version
Purchased unlimited version of app on Mac, which is working (allows for creation of >3 events and events can be more jan 30 days out). However, unlimited version does not work when tried on iPhone and iPad — app only syncs via iCloud the events that are within 30 days out and does not allow for creation of >3 events. App on iPhone & iPad requests repurchase of unlimited version, and “restore purchase” does not work despite already buying the initial unlimited version on Mac.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
