Customized calendar events / tasks are great for keeping track of your busy schedule with repeating events such as a birthday, anniversary, or meeting as well as an appointment, wedding, vacation, dinner, sporting event, doctor visit, graduation, party, and more.

Use the program as a task manager for todo tasks such as going to the store, making a phone call, or doing an errand. Phone numbers entered in the event notes can be clicked on to dial on the iPhone.

The closest holiday or custom event is always displayed first in a scrolling sorted list. By default when the date of a custom event has passed, it will display "expired" on the selection screens and will no longer display on the main screen.

Increase the size of pictures or text in the pop-up details window using pinch gestures.

The LITE version is ad supported.

Please update this app


This app stinks! I cannot use it on my new iTouch because it won’t update. Pretty sad after putting all my celebrations in it!!!😢

Great app for $0!!

I think this is a simple, cute app if you just want a countdown to an upcoming event. I like how you can make the event recurring, add cute little icons, add a description, and most holidays are already there so you don't need to manually put them in. Great app overall!

Great app! Recommend to everyone!


Love the app! Many countdown apps only allow u to have one major countdown, but with this FREE version, u get 5! U can set on picture n other settings. A must have!
