Has a Flaw
The timer can't seem to sync itself to the second hand of my iPad's clock. This may be no big deal sure, but when you countdown to events with the same date and time, the seconds do not match. For fun we wanted to set countdowns to our daughter's 10th, 16th, and 21st birthdays. In each case we set the same date and time (the time she was born), each with its corresponding year. With the exception of years, you would think everything else would be perfectly synced right down to the second. But they are not. I'm thinking the counter starts its countdown from the top of that minute rather than syncing to the internal clock. So all the countdowns are off-set from each other by up to a minute.
Is it the end of the world? No... but it does take away some of the fun. And really, isn't this app just for fun?
I love this app! It's very helpful for remembering when an event takes place. The only problem with it is the count down has, in small font, information about the date. It will say the time it's counting down to on the month, day, and year. The only problem is sometimes the date doesn't show up, only the time. If the event is months away, and the time midnight, I want to see the date. I only see this problem when the month is large so I believe it simply runs out of room on that line and drops the date entirely. Fix this one thing, and it's flawless.
I used the timers to keep track of birthdays.
As the timer is counting up to the time of the birthday, when it's at 56 years 364 days 11 months 23 hours 59 minutes and 59 seconds, as it counts the last second it shows
56 years 364 days 11 months 23 hours 23 hours zero minutes zero seconds. Instead of jumping to
57 years 0 days 0 months 0 hours 0 minutes and 0 seconds.
When you close the app and reopen it that has changed the years to the correct years
