Love and Hate
I love the whole concept of days until; the countdown, the picture settings, colors of font and text style, etc., but what I hate is you have to go back and manually change the dates to next year. I know you should be checking all the time but I wish you could set it to be on repeat for a year or never ending repeat or something like that. So you don't have to change it everything an event come around. Or, you can give the option to do it or not, because people do like to see how many days they have missed saying happy birthday, happy anniversary, etc. Good app nevertheless :)
One of my favorite apps
I use this app daily. I have over 70 countdowns loaded! I have all of my family members birthdays & anniversaries plus holidays saved here. I have 4 kids, 9 nieces & nephews and run a daycare so every kid likes to know how many days until their birthday. I would love if it was updated to fit the iPhone 5 screen size but will keep using it either way. Thank you for not making me earn points or do in-app purchases or jump through other hoops to be able to use this app!
Suggestion for Future Update :)
I love this app because I can use the pictures I get from the app backgrounds to use for the photos for my events and the idea itself is pretty useful. I only have one suggestion to offer, but I think it will come in handy to those of us who want to have a certain countdown as our wallpaper.
My dad is working in New York (my family lives in Texas) and I have his arrival-back-home-date as an event on this app. Because I am so fixated on when my Dadday comes home, I think it would be convenient if you could find a way to be able to apply a countdown as a wallpaper and have it be able to be updated every day. Like, when I turn on my iPod, I want to have an updated countdown (25 days, 24 and so on).
I would really appreciate it if you could look into this and possibly make it happen in an upcoming update. Thank you. :)
