Missing reminders
by Coliek on 2019/04/21 11:21
I put all my birthdays in there for years now. And suddenly I checked it Friday and 3/4ths of them are deleted. So I put all of them and go back to the app a few minutes later - deleted them again.
Upgraded and nothing works
by glee301 on 2019/04/16 05:31
I paid $1.99 to upgrade so my events can sync. However, I tried to login and when I click on”forgot password” it goes to a error website. What a waste of money.

I would like to use the feature that allows you to connect with other users but when I attempt, I get the loading wheel forever. Will this bug be fixed?
Review
by Roxnj109 on 2019/04/04 16:18
I was doing my mom and Dad’s birthday and the app won’t let me put 2019 and it says put the year they were born so I did and it said 1000 days and up till there birthday????????? You need to fix that now😡
Wonderful app!
by i.s:) on 2019/03/14 22:49
I am so forgetful so I use this app for everything from school to birthdays and it is great! I would definitely recommend it! It has timers to remind one of an event everyday if needed or every week. One thing I wish it did was to remind one of an event every couple of weeks.
Was really pleased, but then...
by Davidmcc311 on 2019/02/22 18:33
Been a loyal user of this app for years. The most recent update now syncs reoccurring events in your calendar to the first initial date rather than the upcoming one. For example, if you start a calendar event on 2/22/2019 to repeat every Friday for the rest of the year, the countdown will remain 2/22/2019, no matter if it’s already Friday, April 12. Making your countdown useless because it’s for a past date. The truly disappointing thing, though, is the lack of response from the support team. Glitches are understandable, a simple “we’re working on it” is understandable too. But I’ve asked about this issue multiple times only to be ignored while they continue to post their marketing posts on Facebook.
OK Not great...

Love it
by jordyhilbert19 on 2019/01/18 07:55
I love the app but what happened to the app icon badges? I loved that. Please if you can bring that back
What
by 2727love on 2018/12/22 14:38
What when I went to do everything because I want a countdown for a event then it was saying Watch this I watch this to get everything then it froze and kicked me off of it
Waste of money.
by Ididntwantanicknane on 2018/11/23 14:51
Should be able to make this into a widget and also have multiple pictures going at a time.
Disappointing
by SistahSan on 2018/11/18 07:20
Neither as ‘efficient’, nor as ‘use-friendly’, as I’d like. I hope you can figure out how to accomplish both — ‘in the not too distant future’.
Good but...
by Jtorto on 2018/11/18 00:38
Doesn't always work correctly Dates off, reminders off
Not working with my phone
by help_with_a_fix on 2018/11/14 23:18
I have been using this app for a few years and it has always worked great. But when I just recently switched to the iPhone Xs, it will not let me connected to my calendar on my phone. How am I able to fix this problem?
Crappy App - Look elesewhere
by Rom207 on 2018/11/06 11:42
Lame features, auto upgraded me and charged me for it - did not require a tap / confirm.... added useless backgrounds.
Love it
by eigna08 on 2018/10/13 15:47
I’ve been using this for years! It’s great
Love this app been using it for years
by Mac version? on 2018/10/08 04:09
My only issue is it crashes from time to time but otherwise no complaints. I just wish Apple would let them bring back the notification bubble
It’s fine
by ThatActuaryYouKnow on 2018/09/21 12:48
It would be nice to have be able to enable push notifications again so the number of days to an event showed up on lock screen
Doesn’t actually count down in FB
by Peatz on 2018/09/02 14:57
Can’t really say much other then The countdown component is an actually counting down and Facebook. I have not been successful with getting assistance, without jumping through a bunch of hurdles. Bummer because I was looking forward to using the app.
Count down
by Mzteacher5 on 2018/08/28 06:31
I love that you can personalize the dates with pictures. Three ways to look at a calendar- By the day, the week❤️, or as a count down. Perfect to countdown birthdays trips and holidays. It my favorite calendar.
Badge app icon
by This worx on 2018/08/18 13:48
Hi guys, I do like the app and have used it for a couple of years now, but missing something. You removed badge app icon countdown. We used to have the option to display the number of days remaining on the app icon, but that’s gone now. Why remove that? I really liked that feature. Thank you
Cannot Access the Calendars anymore
by Latadeo on 2018/08/10 10:49
Cannot pick new events from the Calendars. I have upgraded to full version, Please respond
Love it
by wolfgangbaypony on 2018/07/14 04:37
I think this is a great tool
Missing the best feature.
by Scar1ett on 2018/07/09 20:29
I liked that app a lot, cause it always showed days till the event on app badge icon. After the last update I did it's gone.
Not happy
by Lordofthefoos on 2018/07/03 21:29
I can’t even see the number on the app anymore... pointless
All my dates changed
by Hart 816 on 2018/06/04 12:10
Not sure what happened but all my dates got moved out a day!!! I changed some of them to correct day and some got moved again!!! Time for a new app!?
What happened to keeping it simple.
by Star Light 1350 on 2018/05/16 03:21
How come this app went from simple to very complex ?
Soooo disappointed!
by Hollybomb on 2018/05/06 21:45
I’ve used this app since 2013 and have loved seeing the notification on my home screen for how many days left to the event that I am counting down. I updated the app and lost the ability to see the countdown without opening the app. Seeing the number of days on my home screen was what made the app exciting and now it’s gone!!!
event confirmation
by rhondaf619 on 2018/05/02 17:44
hi, from the calendar tab, the app used to show when an event was already enabled, to show on the countdowns tab. why did that go away?
I need one more thing!
by msmeyes on 2018/04/28 17:40
Amazing app but I need to be able to use my Bitmoji with it!! I know android has an app for Bitmoji and countdown but not apple 😩😫😥.
Cropped pictures
by Marcial87 on 2018/04/15 19:04
Great app but it crops all the pics you upload. Can this be prevented?
No notification badges means the app is no longer needed.
by Oxzide on 2018/04/08 15:27
Apple ruined this app by removing notification badges. This used to be a 5 Star app, but now points have to be docked because of that. Time for the developers to stand up against asinine policies forced by the fruit overlords?
Pictures crop too much
by user152837 on 2018/04/07 18:35
I have used this app for many years. I loved it so I ended up paying to get the full version bc I liked it so much. For some reason now when I go to upload a picture on a countdown, it shows it correctly cropped before I press save and then it zooms it entirely too much to where I can’t even see what the picture is. I’m not sure how to fix this but it’s really irritating not being able to see the picture I want to upload.
Great!
by 😎Konan😎 on 2018/03/30 16:20
Love this app to see how many days are left to a holiday or new year! Thankfully I didnt update so I still have my badge icon next to the app. I really wish apple would just get along with app developers but sadly that is never the case!
Wish I could have chosen notTo update
by acfc13 on 2018/03/26 11:16
They took away the badge icon :( I loved seeing how many days until my next trip. It’s not near the same having to open the app or the notification option. I want to visually see it as a badge. Also it’s been buggy for a long time as far as days to go positioning on the picture. I use to just disregard it because I could see how many days without actually opening the app. Now that I must open the app in order to see, I view the bad positioning each time. Not worth the money for the app with the bugs and now the disappointing change of no badge icon even though it’s selected to work.
App Bug
by e1rmxtlg on 2018/03/22 22:56
App would be great if it included the ability to select multiple Reminders for an event, such as 1 month before, 1 week before, and 2 days before, etc. Also the ability to make an event a recurring event would be nice. There's a bug in the Reminder set up. Setting any Reminder, other than Auto, keeps changing the Reminder to None.
Great app!
by Kira-ness on 2018/03/21 08:33
Love this app. Wish apple had let you keep the badge count tho...
Badge app icons missing
by ashley427 on 2018/03/21 06:58
I downloaded this app years ago and liked it so much that upgraded to paid version. One of my favorite features was the badge app icon on the home screen letting me know when my next event was. I also do not like that notifications only come at midnight and not 24 or 12 hours before the start time. Highly disappointed in what used to be a great app.
Badge Icon
by Kayla 7 on 2018/03/20 16:28
I can’t believe apple didn’t like how you displayed notifcations?!? That was my favorite part. -5 stars for apple 😭
Love the App...Hate That Apple Took Away the App Icon
by AmyEsh on 2018/03/19 23:52
I’ve had this app for years and have been going crazy with the missing countdown on the icon! Hoping it will return!
Notification Not Working
by Sandra💫💫 on 2018/03/15 06:16
I'm not giving a bad review because I know it's not whoever runs this app's fault that the countdown notification on the app can't be a thing. But I'm here to let whoever runs this that the new feature of getting a physical notification for the countdown doesn't work. I waited all day and didn't get anything for the 2 concerts I have counting down.
Please bring back badge icons
by Devdev92 on 2018/03/14 09:44
I have used this app for as long as I have had an iPhone. And I love it!! I know that apple recently rejected the feature of having badge icons as a countdown.... but they’ve been approving the app for years with it included. Please keep trying to include it in future updates so maybe in the future apple will let it pass.
Not sure what’s wrong with this update
by Crazy frog 88 on 2018/03/13 03:55
App was working perfectly before this update! When I updated the app won’t access my calendar! And the funny thing .. the app ask you to go to privacy settings to allow access and when you do you can’t find the app name to allow access.... I’m not pleased with this update
Good app
by Mema71 on 2018/03/12 22:04
This is a good app. Sorry to see the notification has to go! Hope you figure out something better!
Great app
by Danwert333 on 2018/03/11 16:58
I use it to countdown to my favorite events like concerts and trips/vacations. It helps keep me focused on getting my "work" done and builds excitement as my "play" (countdown event) approaches.
Took away the countdown on home screen!
by ToriMichelle1211 on 2018/03/11 06:18
Why did you take away to count down on the home screen on the app?! I liked seeing the number of days without having to actually open the app. Please add it back!!
Badge Gone
by Bosox000001 on 2018/03/09 12:42
Badge notification gone, this app now useless.
Fairly ok
by Takeoutblonde on 2018/03/09 02:26
Good enough for what I want, although the app decided to completely remove an event I had set in the past and says I now need to pay for the feature I’d been using for FOUR YEARS. Nope. Also, they have no idea how to use the word “deprecated”.
Sad about the countdown icon
by Taylorsuxx on 2018/03/08 20:22
Loved having the countdown on the icon. So sad that you guys got rid of it! That was my favorite part about the app.
useless
by myreasonsmile on 2018/03/08 19:53
You took away the app badge count in the last update. The badge count is why I used it. I am not going to open a countdown app every day to see the current time left on something. The app is now useless. Deleting.
Countdown +
by Elizabeth Mills on 2018/03/08 13:41
I used to love this app, then you did an update the other day & screwed everything up, & now I hate it.. I have several things on countdown & visible on my iPhone. Change it back & you’ll get your 5 stars back.
What happened to countdown on icon?
by Mommy...2006 on 2018/03/08 03:04
Will this feature be returning to iPhones ?
Tried to contact support
by Mikerey on 2018/03/01 04:34
Last upgrade damaged features. Just did update yesterday and now I have created event but cannot edit it. It locks up. You broke something instead of fixing it. Please fix it now and have a direct contact to support vs. having to go through Facebook.
Countdown
by Bradmazx on 2018/02/17 23:25
Countdown is amazing app I like it
What happened?
by Tim2k on 2018/01/19 13:51
What happened to iCloud backup support? I don’t want to have to log into every app with a separate user ID and password. I use to love this app and it would sync between all my devices effortlessly. I noticed nothing was matching and realized that I now need to create yet another account and remember yet another user name and password. I might feel different if this was a feature that wasn’t ever available...but it was a feature I searched for when looking for a counter app, found, enjoyed having it, and was then it was removed. Disappointing when features you specifically searched for are removed. Sorry, but I’ll find another app to avoid creating more logins.
Buggy
by Bhull007 on 2017/12/22 00:41
Liked it at first. Paid for full version but then they came out with add on images which are extra. No biggie - I just use ones I find online. Worst part is the countdown positioning is buggy - when I position it on the screen over an image - no matter where I put it it moves it over to the left and down. I’m looking for a new app now.
Doesn’t work
by reasonsmile on 2017/11/30 06:06
Can’t add the correct birthday. All it does is default to next year. Worthless. Zero stars.
Background Image Issue
by chodnett on 2017/11/21 01:51
I have used this app for years and love it, but recently, when I create an event and select the background image, my image gets super cropped, and only shows about the top left 1/4 of the picture.
Countdown
by Chloeita 21 on 2017/10/22 03:43
Of course I love the app thank you for asking
Buggy
by DKOZ on 2017/08/31 00:04
Keeps freezing and closing when I try to add an event from my calendar and I try to change the month.
Can't upgrade
by Debo2728 on 2017/08/07 07:11
Love this app but for some reason I can't upgrade every time I try. It's the only app that's says can't connect to iTunes Store. Every other app I have I can upgrade with purchase. Please help
App

I been loving this app since high school 💕
Inaccurate Time
by Mikeplaga on 2017/06/10 16:07
I set the timer for 6:00 am, hit save and it shows my event to start at 9:00 which is 3 hours off, the only function is to count down and it can't even do that.
I love it
by Little_things-111 on 2017/06/09 21:01
I do love it but I wish they would make more free features.
App is currently UNUSABLE and has been for months
by xCatastrophe on 2017/06/05 20:16
If you try and scroll through your event list after only a couple seconds it auto scrolls back to the top, so beyond seeing your first few items it's unusable.
A true good review
by Nfld pony on 2017/05/24 05:27
Love this app! I've not missed an event since I started using it. Easy, uncomplicated, at-a-glance app. Thank you!
Great App but...
by Plano Longhorn on 2017/05/23 13:17
It needs an exclusion feature that allows you to pick days, such as weekends and/or holidays, that don't count towards your final date, to get a "true days" left. Example: how many more days of school? This should allow a start and end date, but then allow you to remove weekends, holidays and other closures to show how many true days are left.
Ugh
by Medhvdf on 2017/05/13 20:16
I used to love this app, but the longer time goes on the more "freemium" feature take away from things I used to enjoy. I'm taking my events else where.
AWESOME APP!
by Babs3192 on 2017/05/03 12:03
Haven't forgotten a birthday or special event since I started using Countdown. And I can always check to see how many days before I leave for vacation! Highly recommend!
Does exactly what I need
by J..man on 2017/04/24 13:01
Great app!
Yes!
by Annoyedbutunconcernedhuman on 2017/04/23 21:52
I absolutely love this app. I have been using it for at least 5 years now and I love it. Is easy and it allows me to have more than one count down at a time.
DOESN'T SYNC WITH CALENDAR since latest update
by hdemo on 2017/04/04 18:03
Instructions say to go to: Settings>Privacy>Calendars but when you go there there are no options or permissions to allow Countdown+ to access Calendars. Used to work before. ZERO support on their website.What a shame. This used to be a great app. Moving on to a different app.
Reliable
by tyler_0304 on 2017/03/27 20:21
Been using this app for three years now. It is the best of the best and top-of-the-line.
One of the most useful out there

sucked
by twentyonemaskss on 2017/01/10 20:52
it helped countdown to my concerts but it bought an upgrade without my knowledge unless you want your money to disappear get his.
Lost all countdowns
by sschwarztx on 2017/01/07 16:18
The latest update deleted all my countdowns. I'm done. Will look fora different app rather than upgrade.
Very Sad
by Raymond Robertson on 2016/12/27 06:19
Used to be my favorite app of all. All the changes ruined it. It's barely usable. I'm very sad
It's useless unless you upgrade.

I'm out.
Garbage
by roeiboot on 2016/12/17 23:01
The worst thing about this app, the developer and empty promises. First Facebook support was crap, now many months later if I click on an event the app crashes.
Good app
by Onstedrx on 2016/12/16 16:13
I like the large colorful listing of upcoming events. The countdown of the next event is helpful and I don't have to search through my calendar for birthdays, anniversaries and the like. There are other features I don't currently use that may be helpful to you. Give it a try. While it is possible to share events to other people's Countdown app, it is a very clunky process. Could use improvement.
Good but with annoyances
by SadBishop on 2016/11/17 14:36
Ok - I paid for the full app. Wouldn't you think they'd let you turn off the constant pimping to buy the theme backgrounds and the company's self promoting screen that pops up every time a new event is created? Suggestion - how about being able to filter and display events separately? It would be nice to be able to set recurring events. You list anniversaries - why not be able to set the event that's being commemorated - say a wedding - then have the app show how long since the event and how long to the next anniversary?
Invades your privacy!!!
by Beth32167 on 2016/11/10 17:52
I purchased this app last year. Noticed today that it stopped synching on all my devices. I had to create an account so the app can synch to some unknown server instead of my iCloud account. I used an email address (not the one I used for Facebook) and suddenly my Facebook profile picture is now in the app!!! Seems like this app is grabbing all kinds of data from my device, but still won't synch all events to my over devices. I just get a 403 error and nothing tells you what the problem is or how to fix it. I don't want my events posted on Facebook or put on calendars, I simply want it to synch to all my devices. Because it somehow got my Facebook profile picture, I am deleting the app and looking for another one!
They finally fixed it!
by HazelBieg on 2016/11/02 05:53
The horrible layout is finally gone! The app is back to being a simple, attractive, colorful list without a giant brown square taking up the entire screen. And just in time for use as a Christmas countdown!
Works as advertised
by LeanHorse on 2016/11/01 11:31
I use Countdown only in a very basic way. It always functions correctly for me.
Used to love it
by SabSch16 on 2016/10/06 17:26
I loved this app. It would connect to Facebook and my calendar. It was great. But ever since the update, it's been buggy and difficult to use. I'm deleting it now. Way to ruin a great app...
Favorite app!
by WOLFYzLADY on 2016/10/06 10:08
I've tried many count down apps. And I always come back to this one. It's definitely my favorite!!! I highly recommend. 😁
Good Countdown app
by FireRed on 2016/10/05 22:10
They keep adding things to make the app better
dope
by yo yo yo yo dope on 2016/10/02 18:37
i love this app!! i love counting down to exciting days!!! it's so fun to see how close events are and how exciting i am to experience those exciting events!!! :)
Long time user
by Mcosulli on 2016/09/29 06:31
Having never had a previous issue, I recently purchased an iPhone 7 and the new app has not requested access to my calendar. Without this, I cannot configure any new events. How to fix, please?!
Deleted
by Fircrest Family on 2016/09/26 01:09
After the last update, I get a constant reminder to add holidays to my countdown. Constantly. If I open the app, I get a reminder. After I close the app, I get another reminder. Sometimes more. I stuck it out throughout all the questionable changes. This was the last straw. Delete.
Basic is fine
by Meese26 on 2016/09/17 13:04
I didn't purchase the upgrade; simple countdown calendar works just fine for me.
Scam
by 13Fantasticos on 2016/09/16 18:34
I bought the app for almost 3 bucks and it turns out you have to buy the skins separate! Do Not buy it!
Trash app user experience
by powerlifting402 on 2016/09/15 12:02
Incredibly annoying to use. Even with paid version they advertise company logo when you bring up the app. Every time. And when you create an event they flash the company logo screen again instead of taking you back to your events list. Not worth the frustrating user experience.
Horrible
by SupernovaMonkey on 2016/09/11 15:04
I used to love this app. Easy to use, good backgrounds, etc. I'd purchased the full version previously. Now it tried to recharge me to upgrade again, but I noticed a little button WAY at the bottom that "restored" my prior purchase. Great... Except that it deleted my backgrounds and it now gives me an error every time I try to get them back bc I haven't purchased it... Even though I have. Go find another one. Don't waste space on free version and don't purchase the upgrade whatever you do.
Don't waste your $
by Sara Sparkles on 2016/09/08 16:21
I purchased the upgrades in a previous version. When the app updated, it forgot my purchase and wants me to pay again. Since the update, it has automatically altered my data to better serve their new in app purchases... requiring me to purchase to return to previous input. Super fail.
Money Grab Feature Downgrade
by kah7 on 2016/08/24 19:41
I've had this app for some time for its basic feature and it was one of my favorites. In its latest rendition it throws up obnoxious UPGRADE nags (no doubt hoping I'll tap it by mistake). And now I can no longer do things I used to do, like set an event to 'days' only. Sadly I'm gone to trash the app. It has become useless (& dangerous).
rip off
by Robertcp811 on 2016/08/19 04:09
I should contact the BBB. I really liked this app so I paid for the full version. After this update I am now seeing ads and asked to pay again. I can't believe they would treat their most loyal users this way. Total rip off.
I wish ...
by DjfromATL on 2016/08/18 00:42
I wish it can sync my event to my phone calendar instead of registering it in both.
What happened?
by Tim2k on 2018/01/19 13:51
What happened to iCloud backup support? I don’t want to have to log into every app with a separate user ID and password. I use to love this app and it would sync between all my devices effortlessly.

I might feel different if this was a feature that wasn’t ever available...but it was a feature I searched for when looking for a counter app, found, enjoyed having it, and was then it was removed. Disappointing when features you specifically searched for are removed. Sorry, but I’ll find another app to avoid creating more logins.
Wish I could have chosen notTo update

They took away the badge icon :( I loved seeing how many days until my next trip. It’s not near the same having to open the app or the notification option. I want to visually see it as a badge. Also it’s been buggy for a long time as far as days to go positioning on the picture. I use to just disregard it because I could see how many days without actually opening the app. Now that I must open the app in order to see, I view the bad positioning each time. Not worth the money for the app with the bugs and now the disappointing change of no badge icon even though it’s selected to work.
Badge app icons missing
by ashley427 on 2018/03/21 06:58
I downloaded this app years ago and liked it so much that upgraded to paid version. One of my favorite features was the badge app icon on the home screen letting me know when my next event was. I also do not like that notifications only come at midnight and not 24 or 12 hours before the start time. Highly disappointed in what used to be a great app.
App Bug
by e1rmxtlg on 2018/03/22 22:56
App would be great if it included the ability to select multiple Reminders for an event, such as 1 month before, 1 week before, and 2 days before, etc. Also the ability to make an event a recurring event would be nice. There's a bug in the Reminder set up. Setting any Reminder, other than Auto, keeps changing the Reminder to None.
Great App but...
by Plano Longhorn on 2017/05/23 13:17
It needs an exclusion feature that allows you to pick days, such as weekends and/or holidays, that don't count towards your final date, to get a "true days" left. Example: how many more days of school? This should allow a start and end date, but then allow you to remove weekends, holidays and other closures to show how many true days are left.
Pictures crop too much
by user152837 on 2018/04/07 18:35
I have used this app for many years. I loved it so I ended up paying to get the full version bc I liked it so much. For some reason now when I go to upload a picture on a countdown, it shows it correctly cropped before I press save and then it zooms it entirely too much to where I can’t even see what the picture is. I’m not sure how to fix this but it’s really irritating not being able to see the picture I want to upload.
Notification Not Working
by Sandra💫💫 on 2018/03/15 06:16
I'm not giving a bad review because I know it's not whoever runs this app's fault that the countdown notification on the app can't be a thing. But I'm here to let whoever runs this that the new feature of getting a physical notification for the countdown doesn't work. I waited all day and didn't get anything for the 2 concerts I have counting down.
Please bring back badge icons
by Devdev92 on 2018/03/14 09:44
I have used this app for as long as I have had an iPhone. And I love it!! I know that apple recently rejected the feature of having badge icons as a countdown.... but they’ve been approving the app for years with it included. Please keep trying to include it in future updates so maybe in the future apple will let it pass.
Wonderful app!
by i.s:) on 2019/03/14 22:49
I am so forgetful so I use this app for everything from school to birthdays and it is great! I would definitely recommend it! It has timers to remind one of an event everyday if needed or every week. One thing I wish it did was to remind one of an event every couple of weeks.
Took away the countdown on home screen!
by ToriMichelle1211 on 2018/03/11 06:18
Why did you take away to count down on the home screen on the app?! I liked seeing the number of days without having to actually open the app. Please add it back!!
Great!
by 😎Konan😎 on 2018/03/30 16:20
Love this app to see how many days are left to a holiday or new year! Thankfully I didnt update so I still have my badge icon next to the app. I really wish apple would just get along with app developers but sadly that is never the case!
Count down
by Mzteacher5 on 2018/08/28 06:31
I love that you can personalize the dates with pictures. Three ways to look at a calendar- By the day, the week❤️, or as a count down. Perfect to countdown birthdays trips and holidays. It my favorite calendar.
Love this app been using it for years
by Mac version? on 2018/10/08 04:09
My only issue is it crashes from time to time but otherwise no complaints. I just wish Apple would let them bring back the notification bubble
Badge app icon
by This worx on 2018/08/18 13:48
Hi guys, I do like the app and have used it for a couple of years now, but missing something. You removed badge app icon countdown. We used to have the option to display the number of days remaining on the app icon, but that’s gone now. Why remove that? I really liked that feature. Thank you
Buggy
by Bhull007 on 2017/12/22 00:41
Liked it at first. Paid for full version but then they came out with add on images which are extra. No biggie - I just use ones I find online. Worst part is the countdown positioning is buggy - when I position it on the screen over an image - no matter where I put it it moves it over to the left and down. I’m looking for a new app now.
All my dates changed
by Hart 816 on 2018/06/04 12:10
Not sure what happened but all my dates got moved out a day!!! I changed some of them to correct day and some got moved again!!! Time for a new app!?
Yes!
by Annoyedbutunconcernedhuman on 2017/04/23 21:52
I absolutely love this app. I have been using it for at least 5 years now and I love it. Is easy and it allows me to have more than one count down at a time.
Love the App...Hate That Apple Took Away the App Icon
by AmyEsh on 2018/03/19 23:52

AWESOME APP!
by Babs3192 on 2017/05/03 12:03
Haven't forgotten a birthday or special event since I started using Countdown. And I can always check to see how many days before I leave for vacation! Highly recommend!
Soooo disappointed!
by Hollybomb on 2018/05/06 21:45
I’ve used this app since 2013 and have loved seeing the notification on my home screen for how many days left to the event that I am counting down. I updated the app and lost the ability to see the countdown without opening the app. Seeing the number of days on my home screen was what made the app exciting and now it’s gone!!!
Background Image Issue
by chodnett on 2017/11/21 01:51
I have used this app for years and love it, but recently, when I create an event and select the background image, my image gets super cropped, and only shows about the top left 1/4 of the picture.
Can't upgrade
by Debo2728 on 2017/08/07 07:11
Love this app but for some reason I can't upgrade every time I try. It's the only app that's says can't connect to iTunes Store. Every other app I have I can upgrade with purchase. Please help
Not sure what’s wrong with this update
by Crazy frog 88 on 2018/03/13 03:55
App was working perfectly before this update! When I updated the app won’t access my calendar! And the funny thing .. the app ask you to go to privacy settings to allow access and when you do you can’t find the app name to allow access.... I’m not pleased with this update
Review
by Roxnj109 on 2019/04/04 16:18
I was doing my mom and Dad’s birthday and the app won’t let me put 2019 and it says put the year they were born so I did and it said 1000 days and up till there birthday????????? You need to fix that now😡
Good app
by Mema71 on 2018/03/12 22:04
This is a good app. Sorry to see the notification has to go! Hope you figure out something better!
Fairly ok
by Takeoutblonde on 2018/03/09 02:26
Good enough for what I want, although the app decided to completely remove an event I had set in the past and says I now need to pay for the feature I’d been using for FOUR YEARS. Nope. Also, they have no idea how to use the word “deprecated”.
It’s fine
by ThatActuaryYouKnow on 2018/09/21 12:48
It would be nice to have be able to enable push notifications again so the number of days to an event showed up on lock screen
Great app
by Danwert333 on 2018/03/11 16:58
I use it to countdown to my favorite events like concerts and trips/vacations. It helps keep me focused on getting my "work" done and builds excitement as my "play" (countdown event) approaches.
No notification badges means the app is no longer needed.
by Oxzide on 2018/04/08 15:27
Apple ruined this app by removing notification badges. This used to be a 5 Star app, but now points have to be docked because of that. Time for the developers to stand up against asinine policies forced by the fruit overlords?

Tried to contact support
by Mikerey on 2018/03/01 04:34
Last upgrade damaged features. Just did update yesterday and now I have created event but cannot edit it. It locks up. You broke something instead of fixing it. Please fix it now and have a direct contact to support vs. having to go through Facebook.
Not working with my phone
by help_with_a_fix on 2018/11/14 23:18
I have been using this app for a few years and it has always worked great. But when I just recently switched to the iPhone Xs, it will not let me connected to my calendar on my phone. How am I able to fix this problem?
Missing the best feature.
by Scar1ett on 2018/07/09 20:29
I liked that app a lot, cause it always showed days till the event on app badge icon. After the last update I did it's gone.
Doesn’t actually count down in FB
by Peatz on 2018/09/02 14:57
Can’t really say much other then The countdown component is an actually counting down and Facebook. I have not been successful with getting assistance, without jumping through a bunch of hurdles. Bummer because I was looking forward to using the app.
Reliable

Been using this app for three years now. It is the best of the best and top-of-the-line.
A true good review

Love this app! I've not missed an event since I started using it. Easy, uncomplicated, at-a-glance app. Thank you!
Love it
by jordyhilbert19 on 2019/01/18 07:55
I love the app but what happened to the app icon badges? I loved that. Please if you can bring that back
Disappointing
by SistahSan on 2018/11/18 07:20
Neither as ‘efficient’, nor as ‘use-friendly’, as I’d like. I hope you can figure out how to accomplish both — ‘in the not too distant future’.
Inaccurate Time
by Mikeplaga on 2017/06/10 16:07
I set the timer for 6:00 am, hit save and it shows my event to start at 9:00 which is 3 hours off, the only function is to count down and it can't even do that.
Missing reminders
by Coliek on 2019/04/21 11:21
I put all my birthdays in there for years now. And suddenly I checked it Friday and 3/4ths of them are deleted. So I put all of them and go back to the app a few minutes later - deleted them again.
Great app!
by Kira-ness on 2018/03/21 08:33
Love this app. Wish apple had let you keep the badge count tho...
useless
by myreasonsmile on 2018/03/08 19:53
You took away the app badge count in the last update. The badge count is why I used it. I am not going to open a countdown app every day to see the current time left on something. The app is now useless. Deleting.
App is currently UNUSABLE and has been for months
by xCatastrophe on 2017/06/05 20:16
If you try and scroll through your event list after only a couple seconds it auto scrolls back to the top, so beyond seeing your first few items it's unusable.
Ugh
by Medhvdf on 2017/05/13 20:16
I used to love this app, but the longer time goes on the more "freemium" feature take away from things I used to enjoy. I'm taking my events else where.
Upgraded and nothing works
by glee301 on 2019/04/16 05:31
I paid $1.99 to upgrade so my events can sync. However, I tried to login and when I click on”forgot password” it goes to a error website. What a waste of money.
Countdown +
by Elizabeth Mills on 2018/03/08 13:41
I used to love this app, then you did an update the other day & screwed everything up, & now I hate it.. I have several things on countdown & visible on my iPhone. Change it back & you’ll get your 5 stars back.
One of the most useful out there
by Bluewater cruiser on 2017/03/06 03:45

by Davidmcc311 on 2019/02/22 18:33
Been a loyal user of this app for years. The most recent update now syncs reoccurring events in your calendar to the first initial date rather than the upcoming one. For example, if you start a calendar event on 2/22/2019 to repeat every Friday for the rest of the year, the countdown will remain 2/22/2019, no matter if it’s already Friday, April 12. Making your countdown useless because it’s for a past date. The truly disappointing thing, though, is the lack of response from the support team. Glitches are understandable, a simple “we’re working on it” is understandable too. But I’ve asked about this issue multiple times only to be ignored while they continue to post their marketing posts on Facebook.

Count down
by Mzteacher5 on 2018/08/28 06:31
I love that you can personalize the dates with pictures. Three ways to look at a calendar- By the day, the week❤️, or as a count down. Perfect to countdown birthdays trips and holidays. It my favorite calendar.

Wish I could have chosen notTo update
by acfc13 on 2018/03/26 11:16
They took away the badge icon :( I loved seeing how many days until my next trip. It’s not near the same having to open the app or the notification option. I want to visually see it as a badge. Also it’s been buggy for a long time as far as days to go positioning on the picture. I use to just disregard it because I could see how many days without actually opening the app. Now that I must open the app in order to see, I view the bad positioning each time. Not worth the money for the app with the bugs and now the disappointing change of no badge icon even though it’s selected to work.
App Bug
by e1rmxtlg on 2018/03/22 22:56
App would be great if it included the ability to select multiple Reminders for an event, such as 1 month before, 1 week before, and 2 days before, etc. Also the ability to make an event a recurring event would be nice. There's a bug in the Reminder set up. Setting any Reminder, other than Auto, keeps changing the Reminder to None.
Great app!

Badge app icons missing
by ashley427 on 2018/03/21 06:58
I downloaded this app years ago and liked it so much that upgraded to paid version. One of my favorite features was the badge app icon on the home screen letting me know when my next event was. I also do not like that notifications only come at midnight and not 24 or 12 hours before the start time. Highly disappointed in what used to be a great app.

Notification Not Working
by Sandra💫💫 on 2018/03/15 06:16
I'm not giving a bad review because I know it's not whoever runs this app's fault that the countdown notification on the app can't be a thing. But I'm here to let whoever runs this that the new feature of getting a physical notification for the countdown doesn't work. I waited all day and didn't get anything for the 2 concerts I have counting down.
Please bring back badge icons
by Devdev92 on 2018/03/14 09:44
I have used this app for as long as I have had an iPhone. And I love it!! I know that apple recently rejected the feature of having badge icons as a countdown.... but they’ve been approving the app for years with it included. Please keep trying to include it in future updates so maybe in the future apple will let it pass.
Not sure what’s wrong with this update
by Crazy frog 88 on 2018/03/13 03:55
App was working perfectly before this update! When I updated the app won’t access my calendar! And the funny thing .. the app ask you to go to privacy settings to allow access and when you do you can’t find the app name to allow access.... I’m not pleased with this update
Good app
by Mema71 on 2018/03/12 22:04
This is a good app. Sorry to see the notification has to go! Hope you figure out something better!
Great app
by Danwert333 on 2018/03/11 16:58
I use it to countdown to my favorite events like concerts and trips/vacations. It helps keep me focused on getting my "work" done and builds excitement as my "play" (countdown event) approaches.
Took away the countdown on home screen!
by ToriMichelle1211 on 2018/03/11 06:18
Why did you take away to count down on the home screen on the app?! I liked seeing the number of days without having to actually open the app. Please add it back!!
Badge Gone
by Bosox000001 on 2018/03/09 12:42
Badge notification gone, this app now useless.
Fairly ok
by Takeoutblonde on 2018/03/09 02:26
Good enough for what I want, although the app decided to completely remove an event I had set in the past and says I now need to pay for the feature I’d been using for FOUR YEARS. Nope. Also, they have no idea how to use the word “deprecated”.
Sad about the countdown icon
by Taylorsuxx on 2018/03/08 20:22
Loved having the countdown on the icon. So sad that you guys got rid of it! That was my favorite part about the app.
useless
by myreasonsmile on 2018/03/08 19:53
You took away the app badge count in the last update. The badge count is why I used it. I am not going to open a countdown app every day to see the current time left on something. The app is now useless. Deleting.
Countdown +
by Elizabeth Mills on 2018/03/08 13:41
I used to love this app, then you did an update the other day & screwed everything up, & now I hate it.. I have several things on countdown & visible on my iPhone. Change it back & you’ll get your 5 stars back.
What happened to countdown on icon?
by Mommy...2006 on 2018/03/08 03:04
Will this feature be returning to iPhones ?
Tried to contact support
by Mikerey on 2018/03/01 04:34
Last upgrade damaged features. Just did update yesterday and now I have created event but cannot edit it. It locks up. You broke something instead of fixing it. Please fix it now and have a direct contact to support vs. having to go through Facebook.
Countdown
by Bradmazx on 2018/02/17 23:25
Countdown is amazing app I like it
What happened?
by Tim2k on 2018/01/19 13:51
What happened to iCloud backup support? I don’t want to have to log into every app with a separate user ID and password. I use to love this app and it would sync between all my devices effortlessly. I noticed nothing was matching and realized that I now need to create yet another account and remember yet another user name and password. I might feel different if this was a feature that wasn’t ever available...but it was a feature I searched for when looking for a counter app, found, enjoyed having it, and was then it was removed. Disappointing when features you specifically searched for are removed. Sorry, but I’ll find another app to avoid creating more logins.
Buggy
by Bhull007 on 2017/12/22 00:41
Liked it at first. Paid for full version but then they came out with add on images which are extra. No biggie - I just use ones I find online. Worst part is the countdown positioning is buggy - when I position it on the screen over an image - no matter where I put it it moves it over to the left and down. I’m looking for a new app now.
Doesn’t work
by reasonsmile on 2017/11/30 06:06
Can’t add the correct birthday. All it does is default to next year. Worthless. Zero stars.
Background Image Issue
by chodnett on 2017/11/21 01:51
I have used this app for years and love it, but recently, when I create an event and select the background image, my image gets super cropped, and only shows about the top left 1/4 of the picture.

Can't upgrade
by Debo2728 on 2017/08/07 07:11
Love this app but for some reason I can't upgrade every time I try. It's the only app that's says can't connect to iTunes Store. Every other app I have I can upgrade with purchase. Please help

Inaccurate Time
by Mikeplaga on 2017/06/10 16:07
I set the timer for 6:00 am, hit save and it shows my event to start at 9:00 which is 3 hours off, the only function is to count down and it can't even do that.
I love it
by Little_things-111 on 2017/06/09 21:01
I do love it but I wish they would make more free features.
App is currently UNUSABLE and has been for months
by xCatastrophe on 2017/06/05 20:16
If you try and scroll through your event list after only a couple seconds it auto scrolls back to the top, so beyond seeing your first few items it's unusable.
A true good review
by Nfld pony on 2017/05/24 05:27
Love this app! I've not missed an event since I started using it. Easy, uncomplicated, at-a-glance app. Thank you!
Great App but...
by Plano Longhorn on 2017/05/23 13:17
It needs an exclusion feature that allows you to pick days, such as weekends and/or holidays, that don't count towards your final date, to get a "true days" left. Example: how many more days of school? This should allow a start and end date, but then allow you to remove weekends, holidays and other closures to show how many true days are left.
Ugh
by Medhvdf on 2017/05/13 20:16
I used to love this app, but the longer time goes on the more "freemium" feature take away from things I used to enjoy. I'm taking my events else where.
AWESOME APP!
by Babs3192 on 2017/05/03 12:03
Haven't forgotten a birthday or special event since I started using Countdown. And I can always check to see how many days before I leave for vacation! Highly recommend!
Does exactly what I need
by J..man on 2017/04/24 13:01
Great app!
Yes!
by Annoyedbutunconcernedhuman on 2017/04/23 21:52
I absolutely love this app. I have been using it for at least 5 years now and I love it. Is easy and it allows me to have more than one count down at a time.
DOESN'T SYNC WITH CALENDAR since latest update
by hdemo on 2017/04/04 18:03
Instructions say to go to: Settings>Privacy>Calendars but when you go there there are no options or permissions to allow Countdown+ to access Calendars. Used to work before. ZERO support on their website.What a shame. This used to be a great app. Moving on to a different app.
Reliable

Been using this app for three years now. It is the best of the best and top-of-the-line.
One of the most useful out there

by twentyonemaskss on 2017/01/10 20:52
it helped countdown to my concerts but it bought an upgrade without my knowledge unless you want your money to disappear get his.
Lost all countdowns
by sschwarztx on 2017/01/07 16:18
The latest update deleted all my countdowns. I'm done. Will look fora different app rather than upgrade.
Very Sad
by Raymond Robertson on 2016/12/27 06:19
Used to be my favorite app of all. All the changes ruined it. It's barely usable. I'm very sad
It's useless unless you upgrade.

I'm out.
Garbage
by roeiboot on 2016/12/17 23:01
The worst thing about this app, the developer and empty promises. First Facebook support was crap, now many months later if I click on an event the app crashes.
Good app
by Onstedrx on 2016/12/16 16:13
I like the large colorful listing of upcoming events. The countdown of the next event is helpful and I don't have to search through my calendar for birthdays, anniversaries and the like. There are other features I don't currently use that may be helpful to you. Give it a try. While it is possible to share events to other people's Countdown app, it is a very clunky process. Could use improvement.
Good but with annoyances
by SadBishop on 2016/11/17 14:36
Ok - I paid for the full app. Wouldn't you think they'd let you turn off the constant pimping to buy the theme backgrounds and the company's self promoting screen that pops up every time a new event is created? Suggestion - how about being able to filter and display events separately? It would be nice to be able to set recurring events. You list anniversaries - why not be able to set the event that's being commemorated - say a wedding - then have the app show how long since the event and how long to the next anniversary?
Invades your privacy!!!
by Beth32167 on 2016/11/10 17:52
I purchased this app last year. Noticed today that it stopped synching on all my devices. I had to create an account so the app can synch to some unknown server instead of my iCloud account. I used an email address (not the one I used for Facebook) and suddenly my Facebook profile picture is now in the app!!! Seems like this app is grabbing all kinds of data from my device, but still won't synch all events to my over devices. I just get a 403 error and nothing tells you what the problem is or how to fix it. I don't want my events posted on Facebook or put on calendars, I simply want it to synch to all my devices. Because it somehow got my Facebook profile picture, I am deleting the app and looking for another one!
They finally fixed it!
by HazelBieg on 2016/11/02 05:53
The horrible layout is finally gone! The app is back to being a simple, attractive, colorful list without a giant brown square taking up the entire screen. And just in time for use as a Christmas countdown!
Works as advertised
by LeanHorse on 2016/11/01 11:31
I use Countdown only in a very basic way. It always functions correctly for me.
Used to love it
by SabSch16 on 2016/10/06 17:26
I loved this app. It would connect to Facebook and my calendar. It was great. But ever since the update, it's been buggy and difficult to use. I'm deleting it now. Way to ruin a great app...
Favorite app!
by WOLFYzLADY on 2016/10/06 10:08
I've tried many count down apps. And I always come back to this one. It's definitely my favorite!!! I highly recommend. 😁
Good Countdown app

Long time user
by Mcosulli on 2016/09/29 06:31
Having never had a previous issue, I recently purchased an iPhone 7 and the new app has not requested access to my calendar. Without this, I cannot configure any new events. How to fix, please?!
Deleted
by Fircrest Family on 2016/09/26 01:09
After the last update, I get a constant reminder to add holidays to my countdown. Constantly. If I open the app, I get a reminder. After I close the app, I get another reminder. Sometimes more. I stuck it out throughout all the questionable changes. This was the last straw. Delete.
Basic is fine
by Meese26 on 2016/09/17 13:04
I didn't purchase the upgrade; simple countdown calendar works just fine for me.
Scam
by 13Fantasticos on 2016/09/16 18:34
I bought the app for almost 3 bucks and it turns out you have to buy the skins separate! Do Not buy it!
Trash app user experience
by powerlifting402 on 2016/09/15 12:02
Incredibly annoying to use. Even with paid version they advertise company logo when you bring up the app. Every time. And when you create an event they flash the company logo screen again instead of taking you back to your events list. Not worth the frustrating user experience.
Horrible
by SupernovaMonkey on 2016/09/11 15:04
I used to love this app. Easy to use, good backgrounds, etc. I'd purchased the full version previously. Now it tried to recharge me to upgrade again, but I noticed a little button WAY at the bottom that "restored" my prior purchase. Great... Except that it deleted my backgrounds and it now gives me an error every time I try to get them back bc I haven't purchased it... Even though I have. Go find another one. Don't waste space on free version and don't purchase the upgrade whatever you do.
Don't waste your $
by Sara Sparkles on 2016/09/08 16:21
I purchased the upgrades in a previous version. When the app updated, it forgot my purchase and wants me to pay again. Since the update, it has automatically altered my data to better serve their new in app purchases... requiring me to purchase to return to previous input. Super fail.
Money Grab Feature Downgrade
by kah7 on 2016/08/24 19:41
I've had this app for some time for its basic feature and it was one of my favorites. In its latest rendition it throws up obnoxious UPGRADE nags (no doubt hoping I'll tap it by mistake). And now I can no longer do things I used to do, like set an event to 'days' only. Sadly I'm gone to trash the app. It has become useless (& dangerous).
rip off
by Robertcp811 on 2016/08/19 04:09
I should contact the BBB. I really liked this app so I paid for the full version. After this update I am now seeing ads and asked to pay again. I can't believe they would treat their most loyal users this way. Total rip off.
I wish ...
by DjfromATL on 2016/08/18 00:42

Wish I could have chosen notTo update
by acfc13 on 2018/03/26 11:16
They took away the badge icon :( I loved seeing how many days until my next trip. It’s not near the same having to open the app or the notification option. I want to visually see it as a badge. Also it’s been buggy for a long time as far as days to go positioning on the picture. I use to just disregard it because I could see how many days without actually opening the app. Now that I must open the app in order to see, I view the bad positioning each time. Not worth the money for the app with the bugs and now the disappointing change of no badge icon even though it’s selected to work.
Badge app icons missing
by ashley427 on 2018/03/21 06:58
I downloaded this app years ago and liked it so much that upgraded to paid version. One of my favorite features was the badge app icon on the home screen letting me know when my next event was. I also do not like that notifications only come at midnight and not 24 or 12 hours before the start time. Highly disappointed in what used to be a great app.
App Bug
by e1rmxtlg on 2018/03/22 22:56
App would be great if it included the ability to select multiple Reminders for an event, such as 1 month before, 1 week before, and 2 days before, etc. Also the ability to make an event a recurring event would be nice. There's a bug in the Reminder set up. Setting any Reminder, other than Auto, keeps changing the Reminder to None.
Great App but...
by Plano Longhorn on 2017/05/23 13:17
It needs an exclusion feature that allows you to pick days, such as weekends and/or holidays, that don't count towards your final date, to get a "true days" left. Example: how many more days of school? This should allow a start and end date, but then allow you to remove weekends, holidays and other closures to show how many true days are left.
Pictures crop too much
by user152837 on 2018/04/07 18:35
I have used this app for many years. I loved it so I ended up paying to get the full version bc I liked it so much. For some reason now when I go to upload a picture on a countdown, it shows it correctly cropped before I press save and then it zooms it entirely too much to where I can’t even see what the picture is. I’m not sure how to fix this but it’s really irritating not being able to see the picture I want to upload.
Notification Not Working
by Sandra💫💫 on 2018/03/15 06:16
I'm not giving a bad review because I know it's not whoever runs this app's fault that the countdown notification on the app can't be a thing. But I'm here to let whoever runs this that the new feature of getting a physical notification for the countdown doesn't work. I waited all day and didn't get anything for the 2 concerts I have counting down.

by i.s:) on 2019/03/14 22:49
I am so forgetful so I use this app for everything from school to birthdays and it is great! I would definitely recommend it! It has timers to remind one of an event everyday if needed or every week. One thing I wish it did was to remind one of an event every couple of weeks.
Took away the countdown on home screen!

Count down
by Mzteacher5 on 2018/08/28 06:31
I love that you can personalize the dates with pictures. Three ways to look at a calendar- By the day, the week❤️, or as a count down. Perfect to countdown birthdays trips and holidays. It my favorite calendar.
Love this app been using it for years

Hi guys, I do like the app and have used it for a couple of years now, but missing something. You removed badge app icon countdown. We used to have the option to display the number of days remaining on the app icon, but that’s gone now. Why remove that? I really liked that feature. Thank you

No notification badges means the app is no longer needed.
by Oxzide on 2018/04/08 15:27
Apple ruined this app by removing notification badges. This used to be a 5 Star app, but now points have to be docked because of that. Time for the developers to stand up against asinine policies forced by the fruit overlords?

I used to love this app, but the longer time goes on the more "freemium" feature take away from things I used to enjoy. I'm taking my events else where.
Upgraded and nothing works

I paid $1.99 to upgrade so my events can sync. However, I tried to login and when I click on”forgot password” it goes to a error website. What a waste of money.
Countdown +

I used to love this app, then you did an update the other day & screwed everything up, & now I hate it.. I have several things on countdown & visible on my iPhone. Change it back & you’ll get your 5 stars back.
One of the most useful out there

Love it

I’ve been using this for years! It’s great
