Ratings and Reviews
Needs some work
I really like using this app but there is no way to go in and change a past trip's date back to the past if you accidentally change it to reflect the date of a new vacation (which is easy to do if you're trying to enter a new vacation - not an intuitive process when it asks you "where is your next vacation" on the home screen, you push it, enter the new dates and it takes the old trips info and updates it to the new dates - ugh!!!).
Otherwise, the app works well and is fun to play with pics and backgrounds.
Can't Post To FB
It's a good looking app and fun to see my countdown, but I bought specifically bc I saw others posting their vacation countdown on to their FB page. When I go to "share" FB is not an option. I've looked at my settings on FB and don't see anything that could be blocking it. I also (over the course of a few weeks) emailed support twice and even sent them a FB message to see if they can help in any way, but no response :(
Really like this reminder widget. Like that I can put my own photo on it. Like that it reminds me regularly of time passing. Wish I could also edit the title on the page from vacation to pilgrimage, homecoming, family reunion & etc.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
