Customer Reviews

Works well, but...

The interface is easy to understand. It is well laid out. One small issue I noticed that happens intermittently is that when I switch to another app and come back to this app, without turning off the app, the settings screen to the right side goes blank white. And to get it back, I have to turn off this app and restart. Not a big issue; just a tiny inconvenience. Otherwise, this app works well and performs well.

Very nice countdown app

I used a different countdown app but it wasn't updated for iOS 9 or 10 so I needed to find a new countdown app and found this one.

I've only done 1 or 2 events and so far I'm very pleased with the app. I love the slidebar to change the countdown units (I.e. Years, months, days, hours, etc.). I also like that I can change the background to my own image for an event.

Good not great

Works well enough. Would prefer to see it on my lock screen, i.e., to have it 'replace' my clock. I'm around enough people and a computer screen all day that I can always find out what time it is very easily. The point of this app is to remind you that you don't have very much of it left. I wish it did a better job of doing so.
