Four stars because it is only army themed
I bought it anyway, but seriously, if you're going to charge for it, couldn't you include the other branches? How hard would that be? A color and word change. I don't have a soldier, I have a marine, and I'd prefer to see marine blue/black/red than olive drab every time I open the app.
Developers, if you made this because you have a soldier, consider how you'd feel if you could only BUY (not download free) an app that said your marine or sailor (not soldier) was coming home in xyz days. You'd be grateful for the calculator but annoyed at the wording and color, right? That's how the rest of us feel. Please fix this.
Would be 5 stars but...
Would love this app if it would allow me to add my daughter’s picture. Every time I click the add photo link my screen goes white and I have to close out of the app and reopen it. I have the iPhone 8 plus, not sure if this system supports the app.
@ mythsayer 1 year ago: I am an EXTREMELY PROUD parent of a pre-med student who has temporarily sacrificed HER education and comforts to become a SOLDIER WHO WEARS DRAB OLIVE! I can understand the pride you have in your Marine and that you have issues with the app. However, I feel that you didn’t need to offend loved ones of soldiers by labeling our colors as drab. The way that your review was written gave me the sense that your insinuating that your marine is better than our soldiers.
Wonderful app but a small new gliche
I love this app. I use it every time my husband is deployed and seeing the numbers decrease every day helps boost my spirits and gets me through the day. However all of a sudden, the badge on the app that shows at the corner won't change the countdown number unless I go into the app, and re-save the date. Developers- PLEASE fix this Cuz I love using the app but having to do this everyday stinks! :( besides this i would give it 5 starts hands down!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
