Countdown on lock screen

The app is very good . But I want to know how to see the countdown on my lock screen or main screen on phone . Any suggestions...
Great countdown

Wallpaper Bug
by Daringhorselover on 2020/02/21 17:00
Overall I really like this app but recently I haven’t been able to add or delete wallpapers. I tried contacting the creator to ask about the bug but I was never emailed back. I use this app to countdown to movie premieres and the photos included don’t really help me to differentiate my events. I don’t want to find another app because when I looked, none were quite contendable but I also need the wallpaper feature to work. Hopefully this review will catch their attention and they can fix it. :)
Great App!
by Priyarao9966 on 2020/02/20 19:20
I like to look forward to big events to get through day to day, so having a countdown app like this builds excitement and is super helpful to me. it’s fun to check every two weeks and build anticipation!
Can’t Count Down
by ID North on 2020/02/20 02:52
Every time I try to add a new count down event it will only add a count up event. I’ve looked at every setting and can’t add a count down. Soooo stupid!
This app is amazing
by Haleysgirl1 on 2020/02/18 14:37
You're can make any thing and you can do as many things as you want and it goes into 1,000 + years in the future.
Wallpaper function
by schwy9 on 2020/02/16 05:43
The option to add or delete a photo I added to the wallpaper function does not work on my iPhone 6. It works on an iPhone 10 I tried.
Wallpaper does not work on my phone
by MBGM57 on 2020/02/16 00:51
When I try to add a picture it does nothing. Am I missing something? Other than that I like it but I want my own pictures. Let me know how to fix it 🤷‍♂️ and I give you 5 stars 😄
Eh
by GYOS23 on 2020/02/15 19:00
Not a fan of viewing just one item at a time. I’d rather view all of my countdowns in one spot.
Used to be 5 stars
by Shandals 🐘🐘🐘🐘 on 2020/02/15 11:51
Wish I could rate this 5 stars. Prior the last update my countdowns would appear in the widget so I could easily see what was coming ahead. With the last update all my countdowns are in the app but removed from widget with no option of adding back. However the app works and the countdown is correct. Just would like to be able to add back to the widget screen.
Vacation
by Tojo51 on 2020/02/13 18:33
It’s great to have something to look forward to, And the count down on my phone keeps it existing with anticipation for a vacation!
Wallpaper option not working
by christine calabrese on 2020/02/12 04:02
I used to absolutely love this app, I used it for everything but it won’t let me make the background/wallpaper a photo from my camera roll. It’s super disappointing and it’s making me upset and want to delete it. Please fix it.
Disappointing Wallpaper Function
by gregtheoreo on 2020/02/11 05:51
Great app! The free app was probably better because I didn’t expect much from it. However, diving in for a buck thinking it would be the key to get the wallpaper fully functional (as in an in-app purchase for more features); yet, still no wallpaper function and there is really nothing more than what the free version of this app gave... Disappointing. Other than that, great app with lots of potential! Moreover, there were complaints about the wallpaper app not working based on a review 1-2 years ago also... so don’t expect much from this app or else you’ll feel disappointed. I tried looking through my iPhone’s settings trying to get the wallpaper function to work... namely: getting the app to access your camera and photos. I went through all the usual places and more to tweak settings to get the app to add custom wallpaper... no success. The developer should get this fixed. If it was fixed and fixed right, this app would be worth than its current value (free-$1) and perhaps the developer could make a bit more off this creation... After all, 5 countdown apps in... this one is the best that I have found at this value! Hoping the next update resolves the on-going wallpaper issue.
Two daughter’s weddings!!
by nlejmon on 2020/02/11 00:03
So thankful to have this app! Both of our daughters were getting married within 9 months of each other. We knew right where we were at all times! If only “life” could be this accurate! Love the count up feature!!
Love this app
by Ash lovely on 2020/02/10 19:20
Great app! Countdown until graduation! Whoo hoo!!!
Like the app but can’t get it to connect to iwatch
by kmh1105 on 2020/02/08 15:53
I am enjoying this app and it is working as described MINUS the iwatch feature. I can’t seem to get that part to work.
Best app ever
by Reyesayes on 2020/02/08 13:42
This is the best app ever created !
Not sure if the app is working properly
by jacklyn101 on 2020/02/07 09:04
I’m not sure if it’s working properly. My days have been stuck at 252 for awhile.
Set it & forget it! Love this app!!
by trenabee on 2020/02/06 16:07
Nothing better than being the the limo on the way to our daughters wedding and hearing the most “celebratory alarm” ever and wondering what is that sound! The moment I’d been waiting for for over a year was happening now and the COUNTDOWN app made me smile and reflex on how long I’d been wait for this very moment! I love this app. I’ve got it set for my retirement in 4 yrs and look at it often. The countdown adds to the anticipation of my upcoming “great events.”
Great app to keep track of events....
by Hairball3 on 2020/02/05 21:44
...however I’d like to delete past events. When I try the app crashes. Fix this please?!
Cannot access photos!!
by jean cali 77 on 2020/02/04 23:56
I just paid for this app and it cannot access my photos to change it in the wallpaper!!
Best app ever
by Jackixgenocide on 2020/02/03 23:21
If you are looking for an app to count down then you are looking in the right place. I don’t know how you have been counting down before but hands down this app beats EVERY other method of counting down EVER!!
Fix Widget Please
by ktdisme on 2020/02/03 06:36
The app works really well! It isn’t the fanciest looking app, but It’s nice to be able to pick the countdown type (years, months, days, etc) and it’s nice to be able to chose the wallpaper. It does what it says and I have no issue with the wallpapers like others have mentioned. Unfortunately, the widget doesn’t work which is kinda a bummer since I would love to quickly swipe to see all my countdowns in my menu screen. The widget shows up, but the numbers are glitched off the screen. I hope they can fix this so that I can use it to it’s full potential.
Loved this app until...
by PSFiling on 2020/01/25 11:48
The wallpaper function completely stopped working. I deleted the app and reloaded only to have zero functionality when it comes to adding pictures. I double checked my settings and all was well. Disappointed!!
Fun to know how days to vacation
by jklotzrn on 2020/01/24 05:07
Fun and easy to use, love knowing how many days to vacation or how old you are in days.
Great, but..
by XZWNN4 on 2020/01/24 03:30
I really like this app but wish I could view more than one countdown at a time.
Count down to nephews!
by SpringHillLady on 2020/01/22 17:37
My nephews and I live by the countdown between visits! Thanks for helping us stay connected.
It is amazing
by bellabakes2 on 2020/01/13 20:34
I have set almost all of the trips I am taking and it is amazing I recommend this app
Not sure aaa wrong...an already
by pdcali38 on 2020/01/12 01:57
I downloaded this timer app and tried to create an event or edit the pre-filled event date. However, there was noapp a command to create a new account or edit the pre-filled events. If that’s how this app works then, ok it’s not what I was looking for then.
The share feature is not working
by PurpleHazeAlwayz on 2020/01/11 21:27
I downloaded the app and I quite like the features and functionality. I am just a bit disappointed that the share feature does not seem to work for me
Love the app... Hate the broken photo issues
by #AppDoesntWork on 2020/01/11 17:55
Have had the app for a few years and love it. It’s fun to see my anticipated events getting closer. One of the things I always liked was being able to personalize a countdown event with my own pictures and share it with those people involved. Over the last few months the option for taking or uploading my own picture does nothing. Also, other countdown apps offer the options of font and color to further personalize an event which is nice. PLEASE fix the photo issues! I don’t want to change to a different app, but will have to if I can’t personalize events anymore.
Wallpaper option appears fixed for me?
by katekief on 2020/01/10 21:25
I love this app and I have been using it for years, but the new update broke the wallpaper function. Seems to be working now
Countdown to a Secret Surprise Wedding!
by Jezebel Vandersnatch on 2020/01/10 04:36
I used this to countdown to our wedding that was a surprise on the night of our engagement BBQ. But ALSO! I love how after the event, it counts up! So I can be all mushy lovey dovey & know how long I’ve been married to the love of my life.
One of the best and easiest apps to use
by Dr. Rodima on 2020/01/09 21:04
I’ve used a lot of apps since apps became associated with cellphones but this app is amazing. It took me literally seconds to enter relevant information the first time and now it’s even quicker as I move from count down to count down. The first time I used this app to track my 50 day 20hour per day fast I thought to myself “49 days - 23hours -58min - 46sec” NO CHEATING. But my celebration came when I got to 10days left. I’d recommend this app for people serious on tracking valuable events including project management. Madiro
Custom Wallpaper?
by julienguy on 2020/01/07 19:54
Just got the app and it is very intuitive and well designed!! For some reason though I can’t choose any photos from my camera roll? I clicked on the “+” and then have clicked on both Take Photo and Choose Photo but nothing happens?
Just needs an alarm
by hornsup68 on 2020/01/07 17:14
The one additional thing this countdown timer needs is an alarm sound
No access to photos
by Passionjen on 2020/01/07 06:11
App was working good until a few days ago. What happened? Please fix. Like this app
Choosing a custom wallpaper doesn’t work

OK BUT DOESNT ALLOW YOU TO PUT UR OWN PICTURES

Anticipation is....
by Maagie56 on 2019/12/30 23:40
....amazing! At least for me it is. 😊 I think counting down to an upcoming trip, event or whatever is half the fun! You can plan & share...and then everyone can enjoy the fun!!
Won’t let me pick my own images
by LiviLou990 on 2019/12/30 13:00
I’ve been using this app for well over a year now. It has been great for my long-distance relationship by allowing me to countdown down the days until I see my partner. But, recently the app has stopped allowing me to access my camera or camera roll, so I cannot pick my own backgrounds for whatever event I am counting down to. It’s very annoying because this app has otherwise been totally fine to use. One critique I have as well is that it would be nice if the app would notify on my home screen how many days/hours I have left until an event is complete. But, it’s not that big of a deal to pull up the app to view it.
Works great
by ppgfarmer on 2019/12/30 02:14
I have a big trip coming up and counting it down is awesome!!
Good
by G.Rucks on 2019/12/29 15:02
Although there are some changes I’d make... It’s good for what I want it for.
Doesn’t work.
by DallasWells on 2019/12/29 04:31
I downloaded this as my countdown app for my watch. It works fine on the phone, but when synced to the watch it doesn’t show any events. I’ve restarted it, redownloaded it, restarted phone and watch, deleted and remade events. Nothing syncs.
Generic stock photos only and no support
by j_pic79 on 2019/12/28 18:13
When I first downloaded app I could add and delete personal photos to and from wallpaper library. It suddenly stopped working. I click on add photo the option to take or upload from library appears but nothing happens when I click on it. Same when I try to delete my personal photos that were added initially. I have tried removing app and reinstalling but now I lost all personal photos from wallpaper library and still cannot add any photos. Tried emailing support twice with no response. Using personal wallpaper is what makes this app so special it not working and only having those generic stock photos make it not worth having. Just want to know how to fix this.
Love it
by IraPick on 2019/12/25 16:36
Easy access to how many days until I retire.

Can’t Upload Wallpaper
by charflood1234 on 2019/12/23 02:57
This app is great other than the fact I can’t upload my own wallpaper. When I you click the option to do it, wether you select “take a photo” or “choose photo” nothing happens and neither option works.
Best app
by chosenone2002 on 2019/12/21 15:31
I like it because I use it for fun events like going on a adventure with my loved ones

Can’t change event title

Widget is faulty
by AZ3737 on 2019/12/15 15:45
Widget went haywire after last update. Numbers are oversized and vertical.
Erased all on phone switch.
by JNL123 on 2019/12/15 06:40
I had about 30 events and lost them all when I got a new phone. Everything is gone. So upset!!

Big help
Confused
by @laurensnotebook on 2019/12/12 06:29
The app’s name changed to something in Chinese despite me never changing the language on the app or on my phone. It also wouldn’t let me open it. So I deleted it.
Today Widget is Completely Broken
by TannerL97 on 2019/12/11 05:34
I have 3 countdowns on my today widget, and they’re all broken.One title won’t display at all nor will it’s countdown, one works fine, another looks almost fine except the countdown itself is... all vertical. I don’t know why.
Wallpaper
by Illinidragon on 2019/12/10 02:52
When I click the wallpaper button, it says choose or take photo. When I click choose or take photo, it just takes me back to the screen with the original photo options. I would have really liked to put a different photo than the original options for the background
Awesome
by A🍌 on 2019/12/09 22:20
If you want to set a date for an awesome event, this app is a great way to build excitement! I love logging on and seeing how many more days until that unforgettable experience. It never glitches for me and isn’t difficult to work. I give it 5 stars
It is off
by ponlautryu on 2019/12/09 20:42
I like the app to tell me how many days till the event but it is off by a day
Love it, but....
by 50Candies on 2019/12/07 15:50
I really like this app! You can add many dates and count down by years, months, days, etc. The setup looks really nice and is user friendly. Though the only thing not working is the wallpaper function. When trying to add your own photo, it doesn’t not let you take or chose a photo, even though the function is there! It had worked before, but now it doesn’t and not sure what happened. I emailed them directly from their website to ask for help, but no response so far. 🤷🏻‍♀️
Broken wallpapers
by Sadfatdoggo on 2019/12/06 14:31
The app does what it’s supposed to however recently wallpapers are broken. Please fix this as I LOVED putting my personal wallpapers on my countdowns
Bug in Today Widget
by Anonymous6.6 on 2019/12/06 07:13
I really love this app, and use it anytime I have something exciting coming up. But, there seems to be a bug with one of my countdowns I have in my today widget. I have two, one is perfectly fine while the other doesn’t show the name of the event and has the numbers 7 and 5 stacked on top of one another instead of the number 175 days.
Personal Photo Option
by ELILEB415 on 2019/12/06 01:17
Not sure if it happened with the last update or what... but I can not longer upload my own personal photos. When I go into settings to allow for camera/photo access, there is no longer even an option for that. I have used this app for a long time but I liked it because of my personalized photos.
So awesome
by Tabarestwins on 2019/12/05 05:11
I seriously love counting the seconds to ANY date!!!!
Love the app
by furio311 on 2019/12/02 21:39
This app is really good! But I think that you should add weeks to the countdown part. I always wonder, for instance, how many more weeks to Christmas, but it doesn’t show that. Besides that, it is really good and it helps me keep track of things
WTH ?!!?
by Leejennette on 2019/12/02 04:05
How the F do u edit a mistake????????
overall great!
by 🍒Natalie🍒 on 2019/12/01 13:35
the app is almost perfect but i have some suggestions to make it a little better. i originally got the app for a countdown to getting my new phone a while ago and i was trying to look for a background that would work for it but i couldn’t find anything. i also use this app for my trips to disney, and there are more options than my last one but still nothing fits perfectly with the event. i believe that the app would be so much better if they went the extra mile and let us have the option to find an image from our camera roll and place it in as the background
Ohhh no.

Bad app

i’m using this to track my upcoming birthday, and i’m so happy 🤪, i’m also using it to track christmas and christmas break ! it’s amazing and it has no ads, it’s not cheaply made and full of ads like other apps ! i definitely recommend this !😊
Won’t work on Apple Watch
by Cruisin55 on 2019/11/18 22:47
I love this app but it no longer works on my Apple Watch. It opens and then immediately closes. I’m on version 2.6.10. I have uninstalled on watch and reinstalled.
Would love to save image
by Siyuyang on 2019/11/18 14:01
Nice app! I’m considering buying the no-ads version to support the developer(s) and go with ads-free. Two personal preference/suggestions: 1. If you could add a “save image to phone” option when sharing, it would be perfect! Now I have to take a screenshot then crop, or save to notes, or message myself? 2. Can I crop the background I uploaded? Sometimes the image is not the same size as the screen so the image position is funky. Overall, this app beats the other 4 I downloaded.
Awesome app
by Mortalmen on 2019/11/18 13:52
Love it!
Love this app
by Maltafaz on 2019/11/18 01:20
Simple and easy to use. Especially if you are the type who likes to count down to your next vacation, wedding, anniversary, or retirement. I look at it every day and have at least 4 countdowns at any time. Love it
Fantastic I love it
by Jax0260 on 2019/11/16 21:00
It is really Great for different activities it is definitely the best countdown app I’ve used
Fun.

It’s nice to keep track of anticipated events without trying to think about them
Awesome app
by Vidkhi on 2019/11/15 03:53
I love the app, it is amazing! I like how you can have multiple celebration countdowns at once. I knew when I downloaded this app it would be amazing!
Get this one!
by cbeth13 on 2019/11/14 13:00
I tried a bunch and like this one the best!!! Super easy to use and it allows you to use your own photos and pick where the countdown is displayed. The only thing I don’t like is that you can’t take the hours, minutes and seconds off.
Awesome app!
by itzskyebelvins on 2019/11/12 00:09
This app is great for counting down the dates. No glitches or any reason to hate.
Still counting
by NewNew40 on 2019/11/11 17:00
Not sure what’s wrong with the app. Showing events that have already pasted but it’s still doubting down.
Great app!!
by KeadyMarioHammer on 2019/11/11 13:06
I love this app because it is free to use, efficient, and can get you excited about any upcoming event!
Handy
by twist58 on 2019/11/11 04:04
Sure helps me in keeping track of important events. Whether it be travel or convention-related events, best app to keep in mind!
Paid version widget is broken
by AJ_apps19 on 2019/11/11 03:44
Stay on the free version, the paid app has a broken widget, showing “no events” regardless of settings in the app.
Love this
by M1234567J on 2019/11/11 01:23
I think this app is really great yet really simple it’s easy to see use I like how they give you a few backgrounds to choose from i know that people say they wish there were more backgrounds but I think it’s a good amount with some specific and generic backgrounds over all the app is great super user friendly definitely recommend

by rtr-ready to retire on 2019/11/07 21:11
I am retiring 12/31 this year. I have 53 days left of which only 25 are working days times 8 hours a day which comes to 200 hours and so on. It would be exciting if there was configurations to control excluded or included times. Being a computer programmer for 30 years that’s the way my mind works!
Wallpaper option is broken
by xXx_Kyle_xXx on 2017/07/07 19:57
It's not a bug. It's just horribly designed. I use this app to countdown for upcoming video-game related things, and opening this app and seeing how much time is left gets me hyped. It would get me even more hyped with a wallpaper... that is if the option wasn't broken. I have to crop the picture into a square shape, and when I apply it the image is all zoomed in or something. I know, this review I'm writing sounds unprofessional. But I would appreciate it if this wallpaper issue was fixed. Other than that, everything is actually really useful. It's fun seeing what "2 weeks 1 day 11 hours 3 minutes 50 seconds" equates to in just seconds. Overall, if you don't care for wallpaper, then it's a perfect app to use.
It’s great, minor issues
by Chihuahua Lover 😍 on 2019/04/22 00:44
Overall, I really enjoy this app. But could you please add an annual/not annual button? This might sound crazy, but I put all my Beanie Boo’s birthdays in this app because I am a Beanie Boo addict! If I want my Beanie Boo’s birthday to be exactly next year, I have to add another event for the next year. It becomes really annoying because I have close to 60 Beanie Boo’s and I don’t want to create another whole event for just that one. You can add an annual button and if you click it, you and say every day, week, month, and year. If it is not annual you simply just press the not annual button. That would be very handy to me! I really don’t want to set up 60 events for every year because that takes up time, and time is important. Please add this handy addition because I think it would benefit me and all who downloaded Countdown Star. Sorry if my review didn’t make much sense and if you thought my addition was redundant. Personally, for a ten year old, I can come up with great ideas and solutions. I am very mature and intelligent, not to brag, but it’s true. So please add the annual/ not annual button to the app! Thank you for reading my long review and have a very nice rest of your day! Again, thank you! Sincerely, Ava, also known as Chihuahua Lover 😍
Very helpful in my case!

So I was constantly struggling to find an effective and efficient way to keep track of my busy recovery schedule especially since it was stuff with tons of appointments and just family activities... The fact that I am recovering from a Traumatic Brain Injury my memory has been a bit weaker than before. I lost big portions of memory due to the fact that pieces of my brain were damaged resulting in these pieces getting removed! In this case I was looking for a great way to Lee track of my schedule! Thank God that this app was free and so good! Can’t complain because I tried multiple others which always lacked an aspect this one presents! Let’s just say this app is “in it to win it”! Give it a shot! 👌😁
Best Countdown App
by keeleaik on 2019/02/25 07:04
I have this app for Disneyland, but will keep it. Why? I can connect it to other things if I had them like Applewatch. Does not add advertisements to the photo of the count down. Can take screen shots through txt to share. Doesn’t ask for 99 cents for everything. Can switch over showing months minutes ect. Just on the screen with the scrolling bar. Choose where to position the time showing on image added. Have it up down or centered. Shows images beautifully too. No wander it rates high, it can work with any event. Thank You so much making something actually worth while!
Disappointing Wallpaper Function
by gregtheoreo on 2020/02/11 05:51
Great app! The free app was probably better because I didn’t expect much from it. However, diving in for a buck thinking it would be the key to get the wallpaper fully functional (as in an in-app purchase for more features); yet, still no wallpaper function and there is really nothing more than what the free version of this app gave... Disappointing. Other than that, great app with lots of potential! Moreover, there were complaints about the wallpaper app not working based on a review 1-2 years ago also... so don’t expect much from this app or else you’ll feel disappointed. I tried looking through my iPhone’s settings trying to get the wallpaper function to work... namely: getting the app to access your camera and photos. I went through all the usual places and more to tweak settings to get the app to add custom wallpaper... no success. The developer should get this fixed. If it was fixed and fixed right, this app would be worth than its current value (free-$1) and perhaps the developer could make a bit more off this creation... After all, 5 countdown apps in... this one is the best that I have found at this value! Hoping the next update resolves the on-going wallpaper issue.
very 😄 pleased
by EwwGEtAWaY on 2018/06/12 15:40
this app is pretty cool , can’t wait to go on vacation in 19 days 3 hrs 28 minuets and 8 seconds. wish you had an option to change the apps icon to whatever , instead of looking at your phone and seeing a picture of a star with a clock in a blue background that says Countdown , the user could change it to a recent selfie or a picture of the ocean 🌊 to indicate vacation or holiday and click on the myVacationcountdown app (you should be able to change the name too). i know it is a challenge but i think that it would make your rates and reviews higher and then more people will download the app. But that’s my opinion i don’t think you can actually do that but it’s ok . over all the app is pretty great.
What the heck? *edited*
by slickpaw on 2017/11/15 20:51
I downloaded this app today to replace one that no longer works with the new IOS. I thought it was going to be a good replacement, but after downloading and adding about 12 events with personalized wallpaper (from photos on my iPad) I went in later in the day and all the photos that I chose to add as wall paper on my events were gone! They were not in the new events nor were they in the wall paper choice area of the app! Not a good start, what the heck is going on? **edited to add - fast response from the developer. Fixed the problem with an update to the app. The library works fine now. My added wallpaper is showing up and staying in the library. Thanks for the assistance!
Overall Fun App BUT!
by Emibim on 2017/10/12 14:24
I've been using this for a few months now and it is quite easy to use on my iPhone with many customizable options. I also enjoy that I can see some of my countdowns on my Apple watch! BUT I WOULD RATE THIS 5/5 If you allowed complications with the Apple watch😰I use the app for counting down the days to Disney trips, birthdays, holidays etc. It was a real bummer when I wanted the make a buzz lightyear watch face and put my countdown app for my upcoming Disney trip as a complication, only to discover it doesn't have one😡 So now, I'm going to install a whole new app just so I can create and have that. PLEASE DEVELOPERS, ADD THIS LITTLE FEATURE, It makes your app in the watch that much more convenient and useful🙏🏼
Great Countdown App
by Makenaaa on 2018/11/25 22:46
It’s a great app that does exactly what you’d want it to! I like the design and the available functions. My only wish would be to actively share events with others who have the app as well. For example, my partner and I are currently long distance and we both use the app separately to count down the days until we next see each other. It would be cool if one of us could make an event to share and use on each of our apps as opposed to the current share feature which simply just sends a screenshot of the event to someone via email or text. Otherwise, I love the app and will continue to use it. I appreciate the ability to add this to my widget bar.
Solid and simple
by #LVK on 2019/08/03 13:18
I use this to track time until trips or other important dates (like my anniversary which I missed last year😬 - now it’s in the app👍). I haven’t had any wallpaper issues like other users, it’s been a solid and very helpful app for me. The interface is simple and and easy to use. I look at the app every morning while I’m having my coffee so I can plan for what’s coming up in my life! It also counts from dates in the past so you can see how long you’ve been successful at something...diet, milestone dates, etc. I recommend this app highly. Have fun counting!!
Love the app... Hate the broken photo issues
by #AppDoesntWork on 2020/01/11 17:55
Have had the app for a few years and love it. It’s fun to see my anticipated events getting closer. One of the things I always liked was being able to personalize a countdown event with my own pictures and share it with those people involved. Over the last few months the option for taking or uploading my own picture does nothing. Also, other countdown apps offer the options of font and color to further personalize an event which is nice. PLEASE fix the photo issues! I don’t want to change to a different app, but will have to if I can’t personalize events anymore.
Great features but...
by spenserh23 on 2017/10/14 02:09
So I have been using this app for less than a week and I have found at least 2 bugs in the app that are starting to bug me. First one, I have been trying to use my own photo as a wallpaper. Whenever I go on the app after not using it for a while, the photo I was using as a wallpaper is gone and replaced by a boring grey background. Second bug, I have a couple things that I want to count-up or countdown on that are based on other time zones. I keep trying to change the time zone, but it won’t let me change the time zone. If it weren’t for these bugs the app would get a 5/5, but these are too big of bugs for me to dismiss. Also, the app is by far one of the best designed app, minus the bugs, for countdowns/count-ups.
great update! HOWEVER....
by boredafyougetme on 2017/05/28 17:47
okay this update is great, weeks are finally included, there's more space for the long titles of the events... i love it! but honestly what the hell were you guys thinking with the wallpaper library...? when uploading a new photo for an event wallpaper, we're forced to crop it into a square and so the picture will be all zoomed and messy... i know i know, the pictures automatically got cropped into 9:16 aspect ratio to fit the phone screen in the previous version but that was good. this is not. just.. why? that's my only question. a great 5/5 update lowered to 3/5.
Can’t see any benefit to this app
by Euroflower on 2018/11/23 00:01
I downloaded this to track my son’s due date. You can have multiple events, but there’s no home page for all your events. If I have 5, or say 15 events, I don’t want to have to swipe through them all. I want them all right there on the first page when I open the app. I’ll be happy to swipe after that. Also, the app won’t let you delete an old count down if you don’t have any other events. It wants you to edit the existing one. Ok no big. But why make me do this? Let me delete the old and create the new. Also, I’d like to see an option where I can upload my own picture for an event. That would make it worth it to swipe through every event I have in order to get to a specific one. At least then I can take joy in swiping through them.
Won’t let me pick my own images
by LiviLou990 on 2019/12/30 13:00
I’ve been using this app for well over a year now. It has been great for my long-distance relationship by allowing me to countdown down the days until I see my partner. But, recently the app has stopped allowing me to access my camera or camera roll, so I cannot pick my own backgrounds for whatever event I am counting down to. It’s very annoying because this app has otherwise been totally fine to use. One critique I have as well is that it would be nice if the app would notify on my home screen how many days/hours I have left until an event is complete. But, it’s not that big of a deal to pull up the app to view it.
Fun... But Share button doesn’t work.
by I Have Joy in My Life! on 2018/07/16 21:58
I downloaded this app a few days ago, and I’ve already made numerous countdowns. They all look great, and I love that you can view how many days, months, years, where seconds, etc. since you were born or until an event. The only thing I don’t like is that when I try to hit the share button, it doesn’t work. If the developer could please fix that then I would give it a five star rating! If you don’t care about if you can share with your friends, then this is an amazing app for you!
Fun, user friendly, and convenient
by JNSellman on 2019/03/19 03:13
The days leading up to our trips always seem to go by slowly until the last month or two. Then it goes by too quickly while we try to gather items we will need and tie up loose ends like pet care and shopping. This countdown takes away that last minute panic. It’s also a fun way to keep everyone excited about the trip. I send my friends and family screen shots to remind them how many days we have left until we are on a beach somewhere or celebrating together.
One of the best and easiest apps to use
by Dr. Rodima on 2020/01/09 21:04
I’ve used a lot of apps since apps became associated with cellphones but this app is amazing. It took me literally seconds to enter relevant information the first time and now it’s even quicker as I move from count down to count down. The first time I used this app to track my 50 day 20hour per day fast I thought to myself “49 days - 23hours -58min - 46sec” NO CHEATING. But my celebration came when I got to 10days left. I’d recommend this app for people serious on tracking valuable events including project management. Madiro
Fix Widget Please
by ktdisme on 2020/02/03 06:36
The app works really well! It isn’t the fanciest looking app, but It’s nice to be able to pick the countdown type (years, months, days, etc) and it’s nice to be able to chose the wallpaper. It does what it says and I have no issue with the wallpapers like others have mentioned. Unfortunately, the widget doesn’t work which is kinda a bummer since I would love to quickly swipe to see all my countdowns in my menu screen. The widget shows up, but the numbers are glitched off the screen. I hope they can fix this so that I can use it to it’s full potential.
Very useful and easy
by Suneshine4774 on 2018/07/04 01:55
Getting this app was a big sigh of relief. I have so many things in my life that I want to know how long till there happening. When I first got this app I was a total noob at all phone stuff cause I just got a phone and it took about 2 minutes to get the hang of it. After that I could fully care at and customize my countdowns. Also it is great how you don’t only have to use the standard backgrounds you can downloaded you own and that you can get how many seconds and minutes.
Does everything it needs to, and nothing it doesn’t
by steV3nom on 2018/12/26 21:14
A very simple app that is designed very well, is very user friendly, and has all the features that a countdown tool should have, without adding any fluff or padding to try and add selling points that get in your way. Speaking of selling points, this is one of the few tools of this kind, or any tool app for that matter, that demands no more than a small section of your screen for a banner ad for their revenue. Well done. Perfect. 5 stars without a doubt.
Very useful and exciting
by Hi this is an awesome way on 2018/03/16 01:18
I have/had a trip coming up and thought why not, let’s make it more exciting. Sure a countdown is fun but always having the exact times (especially when it goes down to the exact minute the event happens). This app made it much more fun to spend times everyday just peeking at it and getting more excited about it each time. It also is very fun because you can change backgrounds for the event, and have multiple at a time! I recommend this app greatly!!
Love it BUT
by 1487angie on 2018/08/10 14:29
So the app works really well and it’s super helpful in my case, but whenever I try to apply it to my widgets it doesn’t show any events, when on the actual app I have all the events down. It would be very helpful if the events were on the widgets so I don’t have to keep clicking on the app to see how many more days until that specific event would occur. But this is a great app and I wouldn’t change it for any other. Please read, it would be very helpful. Thank you, have a nice day!
Generic stock photos only and no support
by j_pic79 on 2019/12/28 18:13
When I first downloaded app I could add and delete personal photos to and from wallpaper library. It suddenly stopped working. I click on add photo the option to take or upload from library appears but nothing happens when I click on it. Same when I try to delete my personal photos that were added initially. I have tried removing app and reinstalling but now I lost all personal photos from wallpaper library and still cannot add any photos. Tried emailing support twice with no response. Using personal wallpaper is what makes this app so special it not working and only having those generic stock photos make it not worth having. Just want to know how to fix this.
Glitchy
by zerobero on 2017/11/15 14:27
I’ve been using this app for 2 1/2 years and loving it, but recently it won’t keep an imported picture as the wallpaper. It keeps kicking it out and having a blank, grey background. Also, the app now crashes regularly. And like a previous reviewer stated, an Apple Watch complication would be a great addition! 5 Stars when the app stops crashing and leaves my background alone! UPDATE: the developer reached out to me personally and let me know they just released an update. Back to 5 stars.
Sidebar widget malfunctions
by ASC1103 on 2017/06/20 18:38
This app is great in every way save for one, unfortunately that one thing is kind of a big deal for me. If you open the app the countdown works fine, but if you pull up the daily menu to the side of the home screen then the countdown is frozen at the moment one made their event. I often pull up this menu and like having my frequently used apps there at a glance, so for this to work improperly is really too bad. Will change my review to 5 stars if this is fixed!
Really great but wish...
by Ash311 on 2019/04/28 17:11
It’s really easy to use and I love that I can customize it with my own pictures. My only request, I wish it had a small percentage complete/remaining bar/pie chart in the corner as well. We use this for everything and having young kids, they love to see in a visual how much time is left as they don’t grasp how long weeks/months/years are :) . I have two apps for countdowns because of this, I look at this one and I show my kids a “pie chart” visual percentage one.
Five star
by Meisgg on 2017/06/11 14:29
I originally found this app when my mom got it and an event came up that I wanted to keep track of and so I got it and it is soooooooooo cool!!! It shows you how many years, months, days, hours, minuets, and seconds away your event is!!!😱 Depending on how far away your event is say it is June 5,2025, you can tell how many years away or you can like not show the years but show the months or degrade to days then hours then seconds!!!!!!! Plus it is SUPER easy to use! 😊😊😊❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Completely useful
by anon/anonymous on 2019/10/14 14:11
One of the best apps to use with A countdown where countdowns our count-ups are needed. The best part is that you can actively customize the photos to personalize your experience. There is a free version and it’s not bad at all it does contain SMALL ads but for $1 you can remove them and honestly that’s more than just a great deal! If you need this app, download out, sick of the ads? Pay the small $1 fee to help support the developers and get them some food! Much love, King.
Love it, but....
by 50Candies on 2019/12/07 15:50
I really like this app! You can add many dates and count down by years, months, days, etc. The setup looks really nice and is user friendly. Though the only thing not working is the wallpaper function. When trying to add your own photo, it doesn’t not let you take or chose a photo, even though the function is there! It had worked before, but now it doesn’t and not sure what happened. I emailed them directly from their website to ask for help, but no response so far. 🤷🏻‍♀️
Excellent App
by BreannaDabest on 2017/12/26 19:19
This app is amazing. I love that you can see the countdown through the widget display without even opening the app. It makes counting down the days way more fun than trying to open up the app every time you want to view the days. This is an excellent developed app. I experienced a crash just now but I am still going to rate this 5 stars because other than that one small crash this app is amazing. Good job to all the developers working on this app.
I’ve only had it for a little while but
by DabotheBreado on 2019/10/02 08:12
I was looking at apps for Christmas countdowns but they all were filled to the brim with ads, hard to navigate, and had many features locked off unless you bought a premium thing. This app lets you make a countdown for whatever event you need without ads flooding your screen every time you hit a button. The interface is pretty user friendly and pretty customizable.
Not loving this update.
by Desemac on 2017/10/08 03:30
The interface went from elegant and clean to bunchy and busy. Make "weeks" an option instead of a default, please, and make the app beautiful again. UPDATE: emailed developer in April and he said the "weeks" would become optional soon, on an updated release. Four months later and only 100 days to my goal, still no change. UPDATE: Sorry, Joe. I’m glad the weeks are gone but now the icon badge is gone, too. This was sad as I LOVED looking at my phone and telling everyone how many days were left. Fix this before my event in December and I’ll upgrade. I know it’s not a lot of money but it’s all the leverage I have here.
Perfect for long distance relationships
by I wish I knew a name on 2017/12/01 04:27
I use this app to count down the to second until I get to go pick up my boyfriend from the airport. It’s made the transition into long distance a hundred times better. Any time I’m missing him, I just swipe left to the message center to be reminded of the days going down until I see him. And the format of the app almost makes it seem like even the long time periods aren’t too long. Bless whoever developed this app.
Really good but...
by MrBucky on 2019/05/23 17:06
I’d love to give this app 5 stars. If it allowed you to view more than one countdown at a time I would. There’s a ton of unused screen real estate so there’s no reason not to display multiple timers. Otherwise I like the flexibility to display weeks, months and years. (Countdown to graduation!) I’d like the option to turn off minutes and seconds. I love seeing the timers on my watch but having everything displayed in days rather than years/months/days on the watch is a bummer. Very nice app overall.
Great app, but..
by jshsjdg$2(:$:? hs on 2019/05/02 11:14
This is a great app, but I don’t get any notifications! I have all of them turned on, so I am very confused as to why I’m not getting any? If you could fix this, that would be amazing, because I have so many birthdays on here and it’s very annoying to have to look everyday to see whose birthday it is. Also, it would be very nice to have a choice for it to be annual or not annual, like I said I have many birthdays and it takes time to put them all in over and over again. Thank you for your consideration.
Wallpaper Bug
by Daringhorselover on 2020/02/21 17:00
Overall I really like this app but recently I haven’t been able to add or delete wallpapers. I tried contacting the creator to ask about the bug but I was never emailed back. I use this app to countdown to movie premieres and the photos included don’t really help me to differentiate my events. I don’t want to find another app because when I looked, none were quite contendable but I also need the wallpaper feature to work. Hopefully this review will catch their attention and they can fix it. :)
Set it & forget it! Love this app!!
by trenabee on 2020/02/06 16:07
Nothing better than being the the limo on the way to our daughters wedding and hearing the most “celebratory alarm” ever and wondering what is that sound! The moment I’d been waiting for for over a year was happening now and the COUNTDOWN app made me smile and reflex on how long I’d been wait for this very moment! I love this app. I’ve got it set for my retirement in 4 yrs and look at it often. The countdown adds to the anticipation of my upcoming “great events.”
A great app
by drbjbl on 2019/03/13 01:40
I love this app because I can have multiple events with reminders. I have reminders for birthdays, trips, special days for celebration. It was not complicated to figure out which was fantastic. There was even a brief overview of the features in settings. Some apps are so complicated I just have to delete. I do wish there were more wallpapers to use but other than that I can’t think of any improvements. Great job on the app.
Simple Countdown
by Ayame_Kitty on 2017/07/12 14:31
I like that you can change it from years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds with a simple slider. The app allows you to easily put multiple countdowns, and favorite one. It works in the notification screen so I don't have to open the app just to see how many days. If iPhones can support this, it would be great for a selected countdown to operate as a live background and/or lock screen.
Awesome for LDRs
by Woooooooooooooowwwww on 2018/11/14 23:45
I'm using this to count down the days until next get to I see my girlfriend. I share screenshots with her all the time! One suggestion is to have an option to share to a specific person. I only use the share feature to send a message to the same person all the time, but every time I tap share I need to type in her name for the sender. If there's a way to automatically set that it'd be great!
Useful app
by M_Cubed15 on 2017/11/27 14:32
I mostly like this app, however, there are a few annoyances that really get under my skin. The count-up/down screen defaults to only looking at days, where it would be more convenient for me to set my own default... not everything should be counted in days. Another thing that would be nice is the capability to add my own photo to the count-up/down screen. Lastly, the app crashes on me about once per week, even though I update the app when required and am running the latest iOS on my 6s. Other than those, app is great!
Good for Counting Days Passed
by KCJD_93 on 2017/06/09 21:19
I got this for the count up function so that I could keep track of how many days had passed since I set a goal. I like that it has a widget but for some reason, the widget seems to be counting one day short. I can't figure out why. For example, in the app, my count says 5 full days have passed, but the widget says only 4 days have passed. I can work around it but I just wish it was accurate. Other than that, no complaints. The app does just what I need it to do.
Great free app
by TENnant4eva on 2019/06/14 04:04
Overall the app is pretty good and I have no complaints. The only feature I would like to see added is a toggle option to “round up” the hours/minutes/seconds to account for another day in the widget. Currently it only displays how many days until an event, so if an event is 30 days and 8 hours away it’ll say 30 days but normally we would count that 8 hours as another day if we were just to count how many days until the event.
Great Countdown App!
by PTK2018 on 2019/06/10 18:50
I love this app because it allows me to easily keep up with the events in my life. It’s very quick and easy to add or delete events, and you can customize the background picture of each event in the app. It also lets you choose which events you want to be visible on your Apple Watch and on the live widget on your phone. I know you’ll love this app too, just give it a chance!
Apple Watch App Won’t Sync
by #Mmmbasstasstic# on 2018/08/13 18:19
I’ve used Countdown Star on my iPhone 8 Plus for a while now, and it’s pretty simple to use. I currently have 3 events I’m counting down to. When I recently got an Apple Watch Series 3 and saw Countdowns Star supports Apple Watch, I was excited to try it out. However, none of my events show up in the Apple Watch app. Whenever I open it up on my watch, it says “No Events.” I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled it several times, and checked to be sure there wasn’t a setting I needed to toggle on somewhere in the iPhone app or Apple Watch app, but I keep getting the same result. Disappointing.
The Wallpaper Thing
by benmaz on 2019/05/18 13:40
I started using not to long ago and I was wondering about the wallpaper mechanism and so I did an event that was not a real event, and then put a different wallpaper. When I checked my IPad the next day I did not change the wallpaper. This is saying I don’t understand if it is supposed to change the wallpaper or if It’s just an in game thing. Please respond and tell me, thanks! (P.S. if you tell me the wallpaper thing is only in game I will change to 5 stars)
Nice app... but
by libmusic18 on 2019/03/27 04:36
I really like this app. However, I have one problem. I wish they had a time option for weeks between days and months. Looking at weeks, idk, it just makes me feel more pumped up. Like “three weeks to go!” instead of “21 days to go” otherwise, I am very pleased with this app. If you add this in a update, plz send me a developers response! Anyway thank you, I’m enjoying this app! :)
Works Great But Please Add Some Features
by scottfillmer on 2018/10/30 10:48
The app does exactly what it says and visually it’s the best out there, but I would love to have the option to display 10ths of a second in the countdown, would like recurring events, and more customization on the countdown display like opacity color size of box placement other than top middle bottom etc, a way to add it to your calendar would be cool, make all those paid features that’s fine and I’ll buy the app. Thanks.

Only had 3 options for a countdown & no where to create your own
Countdown on lock screen
by GreenMist2016 on 2020/02/24 03:53
The app is very good . But I want to know how to see the countdown on my lock screen or main screen on phone . Any suggestions...
Great countdown

Counting the days till I can retire
Wallpaper Bug
by Daringhorselover on 2020/02/21 17:00
Overall I really like this app but recently I haven’t been able to add or delete wallpapers. I tried contacting the creator to ask about the bug but I was never emailed back. I use this app to countdown to movie premieres and the photos included don’t really help me to differentiate my events. I don’t want to find another app because when I looked, none were quite contendable but I also need the wallpaper feature to work. Hopefully this review will catch their attention and they can fix it. :)
Great App!
by Priyarao9966 on 2020/02/20 19:20
I like to look forward to big events to get through day to day, so having a countdown app like this builds excitement and is super helpful to me. it’s fun to check every two weeks and build anticipation!
Can’t Count Down
by ID North on 2020/02/20 02:52
Every time I try to add a new count down event it will only add a count up event. I’ve looked at every setting and can’t add a count down. Soooo stupid!
This app is amazing
by Haleysgirl1 on 2020/02/18 14:37
You're can make any thing and you can do as many things as you want and it goes into 1,000 + years in the future.
Wallpaper function
by schwy9 on 2020/02/16 05:43
The option to add or delete a photo I added to the wallpaper function does not work on my iPhone 6. It works on an iPhone 10 I tried.
Wallpaper does not work on my phone
by MBGM57 on 2020/02/16 00:51
When I try to add a picture it does nothing. Am I missing something? Other than that I like it but I want my own pictures. Let me know how to fix it 🤷‍♂️ and I give you 5 stars 😄
Eh
by GYOS23 on 2020/02/15 19:00
Not a fan of viewing just one item at a time. I’d rather view all of my countdowns in one spot.
Used to be 5 stars
by Shandals 🐘🐘🐘🐘 on 2020/02/15 11:51
Wish I could rate this 5 stars. Prior the last update my countdowns would appear in the widget so I could easily see what was coming ahead. With the last update all my countdowns are in the app but removed from widget with no option of adding back. However the app works and the countdown is correct. Just would like to be able to add back to the widget screen.
Vacation
by Tojo51 on 2020/02/13 18:33
It’s great to have something to look forward to, And the count down on my phone keeps it existing with anticipation for a vacation!
Wallpaper option not working
by christine calabrese on 2020/02/12 04:02
I used to absolutely love this app, I used it for everything but it won’t let me make the background/wallpaper a photo from my camera roll. It’s super disappointing and it’s making me upset and want to delete it. Please fix it.
Disappointing Wallpaper Function
by gregtheoreo on 2020/02/11 05:51
Great app! The free app was probably better because I didn’t expect much from it. However, diving in for a buck thinking it would be the key to get the wallpaper fully functional (as in an in-app purchase for more features); yet, still no wallpaper function and there is really nothing more than what the free version of this app gave... Disappointing. Other than that, great app with lots of potential! Moreover, there were complaints about the wallpaper app not working based on a review 1-2 years ago also... so don’t expect much from this app or else you’ll feel disappointed. I tried looking through my iPhone’s settings trying to get the wallpaper function to work... namely: getting the app to access your camera and photos. I went through all the usual places and more to tweak settings to get the app to add custom wallpaper... no success. The developer should get this fixed. If it was fixed and fixed right, this app would be worth than its current value (free-$1) and perhaps the developer could make a bit more off this creation... After all, 5 countdown apps in... this one is the best that I have found at this value! Hoping the next update resolves the on-going wallpaper issue.
Two daughter’s weddings!!
by nlejmon on 2020/02/11 00:03
So thankful to have this app! Both of our daughters were getting married within 9 months of each other. We knew right where we were at all times! If only “life” could be this accurate! Love the count up feature!!
Love this app
by Ash lovely on 2020/02/10 19:20
Great app! Countdown until graduation! Whoo hoo!!!
Like the app but can’t get it to connect to iwatch
by kmh1105 on 2020/02/08 15:53
I am enjoying this app and it is working as described MINUS the iwatch feature. I can’t seem to get that part to work.
Best app ever
by Reyesayes on 2020/02/08 13:42
This is the best app ever created !
Not sure if the app is working properly
by jacklyn101 on 2020/02/07 09:04
I’m not sure if it’s working properly. My days have been stuck at 252 for awhile.
Set it & forget it! Love this app!!
by trenabee on 2020/02/06 16:07
Nothing better than being the the limo on the way to our daughters wedding and hearing the most “celebratory alarm” ever and wondering what is that sound! The moment I’d been waiting for for over a year was happening now and the COUNTDOWN app made me smile and reflex on how long I’d been wait for this very moment! I love this app. I’ve got it set for my retirement in 4 yrs and look at it often. The countdown adds to the anticipation of my upcoming “great events.”
Great app to keep track of events....
by Hairball3 on 2020/02/05 21:44
...however I’d like to delete past events. When I try the app crashes. Fix this please?!
Cannot access photos!!
by jean cali 77 on 2020/02/04 23:56
I just paid for this app and it cannot access my photos to change it in the wallpaper!!
Best app ever
by Jackixgenocide on 2020/02/03 23:21
If you are looking for an app to count down then you are looking in the right place. I don’t know how you have been counting down before but hands down this app beats EVERY other method of counting down EVER!!
Fix Widget Please
by ktdisme on 2020/02/03 06:36
The app works really well! It isn’t the fanciest looking app, but It’s nice to be able to pick the countdown type (years, months, days, etc) and it’s nice to be able to chose the wallpaper. It does what it says and I have no issue with the wallpapers like others have mentioned. Unfortunately, the widget doesn’t work which is kinda a bummer since I would love to quickly swipe to see all my countdowns in my menu screen. The widget shows up, but the numbers are glitched off the screen. I hope they can fix this so that I can use it to it’s full potential.
Loved this app until...
by PSFiling on 2020/01/25 11:48
The wallpaper function completely stopped working. I deleted the app and reloaded only to have zero functionality when it comes to adding pictures. I double checked my settings and all was well. Disappointed!!
Fun to know how days to vacation
by jklotzrn on 2020/01/24 05:07
Fun and easy to use, love knowing how many days to vacation or how old you are in days.
Great, but..
by XZWNN4 on 2020/01/24 03:30
I really like this app but wish I could view more than one countdown at a time.
Count down to nephews!
by SpringHillLady on 2020/01/22 17:37
My nephews and I live by the countdown between visits! Thanks for helping us stay connected.
It is amazing
by bellabakes2 on 2020/01/13 20:34
I have set almost all of the trips I am taking and it is amazing I recommend this app
Not sure aaa wrong...an already
by pdcali38 on 2020/01/12 01:57
I downloaded this timer app and tried to create an event or edit the pre-filled event date. However, there was noapp a command to create a new account or edit the pre-filled events. If that’s how this app works then, ok it’s not what I was looking for then.
The share feature is not working
by PurpleHazeAlwayz on 2020/01/11 21:27
I downloaded the app and I quite like the features and functionality. I am just a bit disappointed that the share feature does not seem to work for me
Love the app... Hate the broken photo issues
by #AppDoesntWork on 2020/01/11 17:55
Have had the app for a few years and love it. It’s fun to see my anticipated events getting closer. One of the things I always liked was being able to personalize a countdown event with my own pictures and share it with those people involved. Over the last few months the option for taking or uploading my own picture does nothing. Also, other countdown apps offer the options of font and color to further personalize an event which is nice. PLEASE fix the photo issues! I don’t want to change to a different app, but will have to if I can’t personalize events anymore.
Wallpaper option appears fixed for me?
by katekief on 2020/01/10 21:25
I love this app and I have been using it for years, but the new update broke the wallpaper function. Seems to be working now
Countdown to a Secret Surprise Wedding!
by Jezebel Vandersnatch on 2020/01/10 04:36
I used this to countdown to our wedding that was a surprise on the night of our engagement BBQ. But ALSO! I love how after the event, it counts up! So I can be all mushy lovey dovey & know how long I’ve been married to the love of my life.
One of the best and easiest apps to use
by Dr. Rodima on 2020/01/09 21:04
I’ve used a lot of apps since apps became associated with cellphones but this app is amazing. It took me literally seconds to enter relevant information the first time and now it’s even quicker as I move from count down to count down. The first time I used this app to track my 50 day 20hour per day fast I thought to myself “49 days - 23hours -58min - 46sec” NO CHEATING. But my celebration came when I got to 10days left. I’d recommend this app for people serious on tracking valuable events including project management. Madiro
Custom Wallpaper?
by julienguy on 2020/01/07 19:54
Just got the app and it is very intuitive and well designed!! For some reason though I can’t choose any photos from my camera roll? I clicked on the “+” and then have clicked on both Take Photo and Choose Photo but nothing happens?
Just needs an alarm
by hornsup68 on 2020/01/07 17:14
The one additional thing this countdown timer needs is an alarm sound
No access to photos
by Passionjen on 2020/01/07 06:11
App was working good until a few days ago. What happened? Please fix. Like this app
Choosing a custom wallpaper doesn’t work
by JasPeRSea967 on 2020/01/06 00:50
I can set a date and name it fine, but when I go to change the background and try to choose a custom picture from my phones gallery, it won’t come up

How do I remove this app off of my phone? Can’t figure out how to even list an event.🙄
Awesome app, easy to use

OK BUT DOESNT ALLOW YOU TO PUT UR OWN PICTURES

Good but it doesn’t allow me to put my own pictures!!! I’m upset!
Anticipation is....
by Maagie56 on 2019/12/30 23:40
....amazing! At least for me it is. 😊 I think counting down to an upcoming trip, event or whatever is half the fun! You can plan & share...and then everyone can enjoy the fun!!
Won’t let me pick my own images
by LiviLou990 on 2019/12/30 13:00
I’ve been using this app for well over a year now. It has been great for my long-distance relationship by allowing me to countdown down the days until I see my partner. But, recently the app has stopped allowing me to access my camera or camera roll, so I cannot pick my own backgrounds for whatever event I am counting down to. It’s very annoying because this app has otherwise been totally fine to use. One critique I have as well is that it would be nice if the app would notify on my home screen how many days/hours I have left until an event is complete. But, it’s not that big of a deal to pull up the app to view it.
Works great
by ppgfarmer on 2019/12/30 02:14
I have a big trip coming up and counting it down is awesome!!
Good
by G.Rucks on 2019/12/29 15:02
Although there are some changes I’d make... It’s good for what I want it for.
Doesn’t work.
by DallasWells on 2019/12/29 04:31
I downloaded this as my countdown app for my watch. It works fine on the phone, but when synced to the watch it doesn’t show any events. I’ve restarted it, redownloaded it, restarted phone and watch, deleted and remade events. Nothing syncs.
Generic stock photos only and no support
by j_pic79 on 2019/12/28 18:13
When I first downloaded app I could add and delete personal photos to and from wallpaper library. It suddenly stopped working. I click on add photo the option to take or upload from library appears but nothing happens when I click on it. Same when I try to delete my personal photos that were added initially. I have tried removing app and reinstalling but now I lost all personal photos from wallpaper library and still cannot add any photos. Tried emailing support twice with no response. Using personal wallpaper is what makes this app so special it not working and only having those generic stock photos make it not worth having. Just want to know how to fix this.
Love it
by IraPick on 2019/12/25 16:36
Easy access to how many days until I retire.
🤷🏻‍♀️

La mejor app
Can’t Upload Wallpaper
by charflood1234 on 2019/12/23 02:57
This app is great other than the fact I can’t upload my own wallpaper. When I you click the option to do it, wether you select “take a photo” or “choose photo” nothing happens and neither option works.
Best app
by chosenone2002 on 2019/12/21 15:31
I like it because I use it for fun events like going on a adventure with my loved ones
Awesome
by JACKTHEMANBOBBIE on 2019/12/21 13:32
This app is awesome
Can’t change event title
by Elisa2424 on 2019/12/20 04:55
I tried every which way to change event title to Baby Birth and there was no edit button or anywhere to choose another category. Only vacation , birthday or new year
wallpapers won’t add
by actuallyangelx on 2019/12/19 21:19
won’t allow me to add wallpapers from gallery or from camera or delete them. please fix.
Widget is faulty
by AZ3737 on 2019/12/15 15:45
Widget went haywire after last update. Numbers are oversized and vertical.
Erased all on phone switch.
by JNL123 on 2019/12/15 06:40
I had about 30 events and lost them all when I got a new phone. Everything is gone. So upset!!
Great
by ElijahWillie on 2019/12/13 22:24
Big help
Confused
by @laurensnotebook on 2019/12/12 06:29
The app’s name changed to something in Chinese despite me never changing the language on the app or on my phone. It also wouldn’t let me open it. So I deleted it.
Today Widget is Completely Broken
by TannerL97 on 2019/12/11 05:34
I have 3 countdowns on my today widget, and they’re all broken.One title won’t display at all nor will it’s countdown, one works fine, another looks almost fine except the countdown itself is... all vertical. I don’t know why.
Wallpaper
by Illinidragon on 2019/12/10 02:52
When I click the wallpaper button, it says choose or take photo. When I click choose or take photo, it just takes me back to the screen with the original photo options. I would have really liked to put a different photo than the original options for the background
Awesome
by A🍌 on 2019/12/09 22:20
If you want to set a date for an awesome event, this app is a great way to build excitement! I love logging on and seeing how many more days until that unforgettable experience. It never glitches for me and isn’t difficult to work. I give it 5 stars
It is off
by ponlautryu on 2019/12/09 20:42
I like the app to tell me how many days till the event but it is off by a day
Love it, but....
by 50Candies on 2019/12/07 15:50
I really like this app! You can add many dates and count down by years, months, days, etc. The setup looks really nice and is user friendly. Though the only thing not working is the wallpaper function. When trying to add your own photo, it doesn’t not let you take or chose a photo, even though the function is there! It had worked before, but now it doesn’t and not sure what happened. I emailed them directly from their website to ask for help, but no response so far. 🤷🏻‍♀️
Broken wallpapers
by Sadfatdoggo on 2019/12/06 14:31
The app does what it’s supposed to however recently wallpapers are broken. Please fix this as I LOVED putting my personal wallpapers on my countdowns
Bug in Today Widget
by Anonymous6.6 on 2019/12/06 07:13
I really love this app, and use it anytime I have something exciting coming up. But, there seems to be a bug with one of my countdowns I have in my today widget. I have two, one is perfectly fine while the other doesn’t show the name of the event and has the numbers 7 and 5 stacked on top of one another instead of the number 175 days.
Personal Photo Option
by ELILEB415 on 2019/12/06 01:17
Not sure if it happened with the last update or what... but I can not longer upload my own personal photos. When I go into settings to allow for camera/photo access, there is no longer even an option for that. I have used this app for a long time but I liked it because of my personalized photos.
So awesome
by Tabarestwins on 2019/12/05 05:11
I seriously love counting the seconds to ANY date!!!!
Love the app
by furio311 on 2019/12/02 21:39
This app is really good! But I think that you should add weeks to the countdown part. I always wonder, for instance, how many more weeks to Christmas, but it doesn’t show that. Besides that, it is really good and it helps me keep track of things
WTH ?!!?
by Leejennette on 2019/12/02 04:05
How the F do u edit a mistake????????
overall great!
by 🍒Natalie🍒 on 2019/12/01 13:35
the app is almost perfect but i have some suggestions to make it a little better. i originally got the app for a countdown to getting my new phone a while ago and i was trying to look for a background that would work for it but i couldn’t find anything. i also use this app for my trips to disney, and there are more options than my last one but still nothing fits perfectly with the event. i believe that the app would be so much better if they went the extra mile and let us have the option to find an image from our camera roll and place it in as the background
Ohhh no.
by johnny zzzzz on 2019/12/01 03:32

It’s so nice to just look and see how many more days till you have an event . I love this so much so I don’t forget and event.
Bad app

Horrible every time i try to do something on the app it closes out ready to just delete the app and try something new
Great app 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

GREAT APP🤪
by sᴜxᴊxᴊ on 2019/11/19 12:17
i’m using this to track my upcoming birthday, and i’m so happy 🤪, i’m also using it to track christmas and christmas break ! it’s amazing and it has no ads, it’s not cheaply made and full of ads like other apps ! i definitely recommend this !😊
Won’t work on Apple Watch
by Cruisin55 on 2019/11/18 22:47
I love this app but it no longer works on my Apple Watch. It opens and then immediately closes. I’m on version 2.6.10. I have uninstalled on watch and reinstalled.
Would love to save image
by Siyuyang on 2019/11/18 14:01
Nice app! I’m considering buying the no-ads version to support the developer(s) and go with ads-free. Two personal preference/suggestions: 1. If you could add a “save image to phone” option when sharing, it would be perfect! Now I have to take a screenshot then crop, or save to notes, or message myself? 2. Can I crop the background I uploaded? Sometimes the image is not the same size as the screen so the image position is funky. Overall, this app beats the other 4 I downloaded.
Awesome app
by Mortalmen on 2019/11/18 13:52
Love it!
Love this app
by Maltafaz on 2019/11/18 01:20
Simple and easy to use. Especially if you are the type who likes to count down to your next vacation, wedding, anniversary, or retirement. I look at it every day and have at least 4 countdowns at any time. Love it
Fantastic I love it
by Jax0260 on 2019/11/16 21:00
It is really Great for different activities it is definitely the best countdown app I’ve used
Fun.
by Feldspar60 on 2019/11/16 20:56
It’s nice to keep track of anticipated events without trying to think about them
Awesome app
by Vidkhi on 2019/11/15 03:53
I love the app, it is amazing! I like how you can have multiple celebration countdowns at once. I knew when I downloaded this app it would be amazing!
Get this one!
by cbeth13 on 2019/11/14 13:00
I tried a bunch and like this one the best!!! Super easy to use and it allows you to use your own photos and pick where the countdown is displayed. The only thing I don’t like is that you can’t take the hours, minutes and seconds off.
Awesome app!
by itzskyebelvins on 2019/11/12 00:09
This app is great for counting down the dates. No glitches or any reason to hate.
Still counting
by NewNew40 on 2019/11/11 17:00
Not sure what’s wrong with the app. Showing events that have already pasted but it’s still doubting down.
Great app!!
by KeadyMarioHammer on 2019/11/11 13:06
I love this app because it is free to use, efficient, and can get you excited about any upcoming event!
Handy
by twist58 on 2019/11/11 04:04
Sure helps me in keeping track of important events. Whether it be travel or convention-related events, best app to keep in mind!
Paid version widget is broken
by AJ_apps19 on 2019/11/11 03:44
Stay on the free version, the paid app has a broken widget, showing “no events” regardless of settings in the app.
Love this
by M1234567J on 2019/11/11 01:23
I think this app is really great yet really simple it’s easy to see use I like how they give you a few backgrounds to choose from i know that people say they wish there were more backgrounds but I think it’s a good amount with some specific and generic backgrounds over all the app is great super user friendly definitely recommend
Not social media friendly

Love it but would like little more functionality
by rtr-ready to retire on 2019/11/07 21:11
I am retiring 12/31 this year. I have 53 days left of which only 25 are working days times 8 hours a day which comes to 200 hours and so on. It would be exciting if there was configurations to control excluded or included times. Being a computer programmer for 30 years that’s the way my mind works!
Wallpaper option is broken
by xXx_Kyle_xXx on 2017/07/07 19:57
It's not a bug. It's just horribly designed. I use this app to countdown for upcoming video-game related things, and opening this app and seeing how much time is left gets me hyped. It would get me even more hyped with a wallpaper... that is if the option wasn't broken. I have to crop the picture into a square shape, and when I apply it the image is all zoomed in or something. I know, this review I'm writing sounds unprofessional. But I would appreciate it if this wallpaper issue was fixed. Other than that, everything is actually really useful. It's fun seeing what "2 weeks 1 day 11 hours 3 minutes 50 seconds" equates to in just seconds. Overall, if you don't care for wallpaper, then it's a perfect app to use.
It’s great, minor issues
by Chihuahua Lover 😍 on 2019/04/22 00:44
Overall, I really enjoy this app. But could you please add an annual/not annual button? This might sound crazy, but I put all my Beanie Boo’s birthdays in this app because I am a Beanie Boo addict! If I want my Beanie Boo’s birthday to be exactly next year, I have to add another event for the next year. It becomes really annoying because I have close to 60 Beanie Boo’s and I don’t want to create another whole event for just that one. You can add an annual button and if you click it, you and say every day, week, month, and year. If it is not annual you simply just press the not annual button. That would be very handy to me! I really don’t want to set up 60 events for every year because that takes up time, and time is important. Please add this handy addition because I think it would benefit me and all who downloaded Countdown Star. Sorry if my review didn’t make much sense and if you thought my addition was redundant. Personally, for a ten year old, I can come up with great ideas and solutions. I am very mature and intelligent, not to brag, but it’s true. So please add the annual/ not annual button to the app! Thank you for reading my long review and have a very nice rest of your day! Again, thank you! Sincerely, Ava, also known as Chihuahua Lover 😍
Very helpful in my case!

So I was constantly struggling to find an effective and efficient way to keep track of my busy recovery schedule especially since it was stuff with tons of appointments and just family activities... The fact that I am recovering from a Traumatic Brain Injury my memory has been a bit weaker than before. I lost big portions of memory due to the fact that pieces of my brain were damaged resulting in these pieces getting removed! In this case I was looking for a great way to Lee track of my schedule! Thank God that this app was free and so good! Can’t complain because I tried multiple others which always lacked an aspect this one presents! Let’s just say this app is “in it to win it”! Give it a shot! 👌😁
Best Countdown App
by keeleaik on 2019/02/25 07:04
I have this app for Disneyland, but will keep it. Why? I can connect it to other things if I had them like Applewatch. Does not add advertisements to the photo of the count down. Can take screen shots through txt to share. Doesn’t ask for 99 cents for everything. Can switch over showing months minutes ect. Just on the screen with the scrolling bar. Choose where to position the time showing on image added. Have it up down or centered. Shows images beautifully too. No wander it rates high, it can work with any event. Thank You so much making something actually worth while!
Disappointing Wallpaper Function
by gregtheoreo on 2020/02/11 05:51
Great app! The free app was probably better because I didn’t expect much from it. However, diving in for a buck thinking it would be the key to get the wallpaper fully functional (as in an in-app purchase for more features); yet, still no wallpaper function and there is really nothing more than what the free version of this app gave... Disappointing. Other than that, great app with lots of potential! Moreover, there were complaints about the wallpaper app not working based on a review 1-2 years ago also... so don’t expect much from this app or else you’ll feel disappointed. I tried looking through my iPhone’s settings trying to get the wallpaper function to work... namely: getting the app to access your camera and photos. I went through all the usual places and more to tweak settings to get the app to add custom wallpaper... no success. The developer should get this fixed. If it was fixed and fixed right, this app would be worth than its current value (free-$1) and perhaps the developer could make a bit more off this creation... After all, 5 countdown apps in... this one is the best that I have found at this value! Hoping the next update resolves the on-going wallpaper issue.
very 😄 pleased
by EwwGEtAWaY on 2018/06/12 15:40
this app is pretty cool , can’t wait to go on vacation in 19 days 3 hrs 28 minuets and 8 seconds. wish you had an option to change the apps icon to whatever , instead of looking at your phone and seeing a picture of a star with a clock in a blue background that says Countdown , the user could change it to a recent selfie or a picture of the ocean 🌊 to indicate vacation or holiday and click on the myVacationcountdown app (you should be able to change the name too). i know it is a challenge but i think that it would make your rates and reviews higher and then more people will download the app. But that’s my opinion i don’t think you can actually do that but it’s ok . over all the app is pretty great.
What the heck? *edited*
by slickpaw on 2017/11/15 20:51
I downloaded this app today to replace one that no longer works with the new IOS. I thought it was going to be a good replacement, but after downloading and adding about 12 events with personalized wallpaper (from photos on my iPad) I went in later in the day and all the photos that I chose to add as wall paper on my events were gone! They were not in the new events nor were they in the wall paper choice area of the app! Not a good start, what the heck is going on? **edited to add - fast response from the developer. Fixed the problem with an update to the app. The library works fine now. My added wallpaper is showing up and staying in the library. Thanks for the assistance!
Overall Fun App BUT!
by Emibim on 2017/10/12 14:24
I've been using this for a few months now and it is quite easy to use on my iPhone with many customizable options. I also enjoy that I can see some of my countdowns on my Apple watch! BUT I WOULD RATE THIS 5/5 If you allowed complications with the Apple watch😰I use the app for counting down the days to Disney trips, birthdays, holidays etc. It was a real bummer when I wanted the make a buzz lightyear watch face and put my countdown app for my upcoming Disney trip as a complication, only to discover it doesn't have one😡 So now, I'm going to install a whole new app just so I can create and have that. PLEASE DEVELOPERS, ADD THIS LITTLE FEATURE, It makes your app in the watch that much more convenient and useful🙏🏼
Great Countdown App
by Makenaaa on 2018/11/25 22:46
It’s a great app that does exactly what you’d want it to! I like the design and the available functions. My only wish would be to actively share events with others who have the app as well. For example, my partner and I are currently long distance and we both use the app separately to count down the days until we next see each other. It would be cool if one of us could make an event to share and use on each of our apps as opposed to the current share feature which simply just sends a screenshot of the event to someone via email or text. Otherwise, I love the app and will continue to use it. I appreciate the ability to add this to my widget bar.
Solid and simple
by #LVK on 2019/08/03 13:18
I use this to track time until trips or other important dates (like my anniversary which I missed last year😬 - now it’s in the app👍). I haven’t had any wallpaper issues like other users, it’s been a solid and very helpful app for me. The interface is simple and and easy to use. I look at the app every morning while I’m having my coffee so I can plan for what’s coming up in my life! It also counts from dates in the past so you can see how long you’ve been successful at something...diet, milestone dates, etc. I recommend this app highly. Have fun counting!!
Love the app... Hate the broken photo issues
by #AppDoesntWork on 2020/01/11 17:55
Have had the app for a few years and love it. It’s fun to see my anticipated events getting closer. One of the things I always liked was being able to personalize a countdown event with my own pictures and share it with those people involved. Over the last few months the option for taking or uploading my own picture does nothing. Also, other countdown apps offer the options of font and color to further personalize an event which is nice. PLEASE fix the photo issues! I don’t want to change to a different app, but will have to if I can’t personalize events anymore.
Great features but...
by spenserh23 on 2017/10/14 02:09
So I have been using this app for less than a week and I have found at least 2 bugs in the app that are starting to bug me. First one, I have been trying to use my own photo as a wallpaper. Whenever I go on the app after not using it for a while, the photo I was using as a wallpaper is gone and replaced by a boring grey background. Second bug, I have a couple things that I want to count-up or countdown on that are based on other time zones. I keep trying to change the time zone, but it won’t let me change the time zone. If it weren’t for these bugs the app would get a 5/5, but these are too big of bugs for me to dismiss. Also, the app is by far one of the best designed app, minus the bugs, for countdowns/count-ups.
great update! HOWEVER....
by boredafyougetme on 2017/05/28 17:47
okay this update is great, weeks are finally included, there's more space for the long titles of the events... i love it! but honestly what the hell were you guys thinking with the wallpaper library...? when uploading a new photo for an event wallpaper, we're forced to crop it into a square and so the picture will be all zoomed and messy... i know i know, the pictures automatically got cropped into 9:16 aspect ratio to fit the phone screen in the previous version but that was good. this is not. just.. why? that's my only question. a great 5/5 update lowered to 3/5.
Can’t see any benefit to this app
by Euroflower on 2018/11/23 00:01
I downloaded this to track my son’s due date. You can have multiple events, but there’s no home page for all your events. If I have 5, or say 15 events, I don’t want to have to swipe through them all. I want them all right there on the first page when I open the app. I’ll be happy to swipe after that. Also, the app won’t let you delete an old count down if you don’t have any other events. It wants you to edit the existing one. Ok no big. But why make me do this? Let me delete the old and create the new. Also, I’d like to see an option where I can upload my own picture for an event. That would make it worth it to swipe through every event I have in order to get to a specific one. At least then I can take joy in swiping through them.
Won’t let me pick my own images
by LiviLou990 on 2019/12/30 13:00
I’ve been using this app for well over a year now. It has been great for my long-distance relationship by allowing me to countdown down the days until I see my partner. But, recently the app has stopped allowing me to access my camera or camera roll, so I cannot pick my own backgrounds for whatever event I am counting down to. It’s very annoying because this app has otherwise been totally fine to use. One critique I have as well is that it would be nice if the app would notify on my home screen how many days/hours I have left until an event is complete. But, it’s not that big of a deal to pull up the app to view it.
Fun... But Share button doesn’t work.
by I Have Joy in My Life! on 2018/07/16 21:58
I downloaded this app a few days ago, and I’ve already made numerous countdowns. They all look great, and I love that you can view how many days, months, years, where seconds, etc. since you were born or until an event. The only thing I don’t like is that when I try to hit the share button, it doesn’t work. If the developer could please fix that then I would give it a five star rating! If you don’t care about if you can share with your friends, then this is an amazing app for you!
Fun, user friendly, and convenient
by JNSellman on 2019/03/19 03:13
The days leading up to our trips always seem to go by slowly until the last month or two. Then it goes by too quickly while we try to gather items we will need and tie up loose ends like pet care and shopping. This countdown takes away that last minute panic. It’s also a fun way to keep everyone excited about the trip. I send my friends and family screen shots to remind them how many days we have left until we are on a beach somewhere or celebrating together.
One of the best and easiest apps to use
by Dr. Rodima on 2020/01/09 21:04
I’ve used a lot of apps since apps became associated with cellphones but this app is amazing. It took me literally seconds to enter relevant information the first time and now it’s even quicker as I move from count down to count down. The first time I used this app to track my 50 day 20hour per day fast I thought to myself “49 days - 23hours -58min - 46sec” NO CHEATING. But my celebration came when I got to 10days left. I’d recommend this app for people serious on tracking valuable events including project management. Madiro
Fix Widget Please
by ktdisme on 2020/02/03 06:36
The app works really well! It isn’t the fanciest looking app, but It’s nice to be able to pick the countdown type (years, months, days, etc) and it’s nice to be able to chose the wallpaper. It does what it says and I have no issue with the wallpapers like others have mentioned. Unfortunately, the widget doesn’t work which is kinda a bummer since I would love to quickly swipe to see all my countdowns in my menu screen. The widget shows up, but the numbers are glitched off the screen. I hope they can fix this so that I can use it to it’s full potential.
Very useful and easy
by Suneshine4774 on 2018/07/04 01:55
Getting this app was a big sigh of relief. I have so many things in my life that I want to know how long till there happening. When I first got this app I was a total noob at all phone stuff cause I just got a phone and it took about 2 minutes to get the hang of it. After that I could fully care at and customize my countdowns. Also it is great how you don’t only have to use the standard backgrounds you can downloaded you own and that you can get how many seconds and minutes.
Does everything it needs to, and nothing it doesn’t
by steV3nom on 2018/12/26 21:14
A very simple app that is designed very well, is very user friendly, and has all the features that a countdown tool should have, without adding any fluff or padding to try and add selling points that get in your way. Speaking of selling points, this is one of the few tools of this kind, or any tool app for that matter, that demands no more than a small section of your screen for a banner ad for their revenue. Well done. Perfect. 5 stars without a doubt.
Very useful and exciting
by Hi this is an awesome way on 2018/03/16 01:18
I have/had a trip coming up and thought why not, let’s make it more exciting. Sure a countdown is fun but always having the exact times (especially when it goes down to the exact minute the event happens). This app made it much more fun to spend times everyday just peeking at it and getting more excited about it each time. It also is very fun because you can change backgrounds for the event, and have multiple at a time! I recommend this app greatly!!
Love it BUT
by 1487angie on 2018/08/10 14:29
So the app works really well and it’s super helpful in my case, but whenever I try to apply it to my widgets it doesn’t show any events, when on the actual app I have all the events down. It would be very helpful if the events were on the widgets so I don’t have to keep clicking on the app to see how many more days until that specific event would occur. But this is a great app and I wouldn’t change it for any other. Please read, it would be very helpful. Thank you, have a nice day!
Generic stock photos only and no support
by j_pic79 on 2019/12/28 18:13
When I first downloaded app I could add and delete personal photos to and from wallpaper library. It suddenly stopped working. I click on add photo the option to take or upload from library appears but nothing happens when I click on it. Same when I try to delete my personal photos that were added initially. I have tried removing app and reinstalling but now I lost all personal photos from wallpaper library and still cannot add any photos. Tried emailing support twice with no response. Using personal wallpaper is what makes this app so special it not working and only having those generic stock photos make it not worth having. Just want to know how to fix this.
Glitchy
by zerobero on 2017/11/15 14:27
I’ve been using this app for 2 1/2 years and loving it, but recently it won’t keep an imported picture as the wallpaper. It keeps kicking it out and having a blank, grey background. Also, the app now crashes regularly. And like a previous reviewer stated, an Apple Watch complication would be a great addition! 5 Stars when the app stops crashing and leaves my background alone! UPDATE: the developer reached out to me personally and let me know they just released an update. Back to 5 stars.
Sidebar widget malfunctions
by ASC1103 on 2017/06/20 18:38
This app is great in every way save for one, unfortunately that one thing is kind of a big deal for me. If you open the app the countdown works fine, but if you pull up the daily menu to the side of the home screen then the countdown is frozen at the moment one made their event. I often pull up this menu and like having my frequently used apps there at a glance, so for this to work improperly is really too bad. Will change my review to 5 stars if this is fixed!
Really great but wish...
by Ash311 on 2019/04/28 17:11
It’s really easy to use and I love that I can customize it with my own pictures. My only request, I wish it had a small percentage complete/remaining bar/pie chart in the corner as well. We use this for everything and having young kids, they love to see in a visual how much time is left as they don’t grasp how long weeks/months/years are :) . I have two apps for countdowns because of this, I look at this one and I show my kids a “pie chart” visual percentage one.
Five star
by Meisgg on 2017/06/11 14:29
I originally found this app when my mom got it and an event came up that I wanted to keep track of and so I got it and it is soooooooooo cool!!! It shows you how many years, months, days, hours, minuets, and seconds away your event is!!!😱 Depending on how far away your event is say it is June 5,2025, you can tell how many years away or you can like not show the years but show the months or degrade to days then hours then seconds!!!!!!! Plus it is SUPER easy to use! 😊😊😊❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Completely useful
by anon/anonymous on 2019/10/14 14:11
One of the best apps to use with A countdown where countdowns our count-ups are needed. The best part is that you can actively customize the photos to personalize your experience. There is a free version and it’s not bad at all it does contain SMALL ads but for $1 you can remove them and honestly that’s more than just a great deal! If you need this app, download out, sick of the ads? Pay the small $1 fee to help support the developers and get them some food! Much love, King.
Love it, but....
by 50Candies on 2019/12/07 15:50
I really like this app! You can add many dates and count down by years, months, days, etc. The setup looks really nice and is user friendly. Though the only thing not working is the wallpaper function. When trying to add your own photo, it doesn’t not let you take or chose a photo, even though the function is there! It had worked before, but now it doesn’t and not sure what happened. I emailed them directly from their website to ask for help, but no response so far. 🤷🏻‍♀️
Excellent App
by BreannaDabest on 2017/12/26 19:19
This app is amazing. I love that you can see the countdown through the widget display without even opening the app. It makes counting down the days way more fun than trying to open up the app every time you want to view the days. This is an excellent developed app. I experienced a crash just now but I am still going to rate this 5 stars because other than that one small crash this app is amazing. Good job to all the developers working on this app.
I’ve only had it for a little while but
by DabotheBreado on 2019/10/02 08:12
I was looking at apps for Christmas countdowns but they all were filled to the brim with ads, hard to navigate, and had many features locked off unless you bought a premium thing. This app lets you make a countdown for whatever event you need without ads flooding your screen every time you hit a button. The interface is pretty user friendly and pretty customizable.
Not loving this update.
by Desemac on 2017/10/08 03:30
The interface went from elegant and clean to bunchy and busy. Make "weeks" an option instead of a default, please, and make the app beautiful again. UPDATE: emailed developer in April and he said the "weeks" would become optional soon, on an updated release. Four months later and only 100 days to my goal, still no change. UPDATE: Sorry, Joe. I’m glad the weeks are gone but now the icon badge is gone, too. This was sad as I LOVED looking at my phone and telling everyone how many days were left. Fix this before my event in December and I’ll upgrade. I know it’s not a lot of money but it’s all the leverage I have here.
Perfect for long distance relationships
by I wish I knew a name on 2017/12/01 04:27
I use this app to count down the to second until I get to go pick up my boyfriend from the airport. It’s made the transition into long distance a hundred times better. Any time I’m missing him, I just swipe left to the message center to be reminded of the days going down until I see him. And the format of the app almost makes it seem like even the long time periods aren’t too long. Bless whoever developed this app.
Really good but...
by MrBucky on 2019/05/23 17:06
I’d love to give this app 5 stars. If it allowed you to view more than one countdown at a time I would. There’s a ton of unused screen real estate so there’s no reason not to display multiple timers. Otherwise I like the flexibility to display weeks, months and years. (Countdown to graduation!) I’d like the option to turn off minutes and seconds. I love seeing the timers on my watch but having everything displayed in days rather than years/months/days on the watch is a bummer. Very nice app overall.
Great app, but..
by jshsjdg$2(:$:? hs on 2019/05/02 11:14
This is a great app, but I don’t get any notifications! I have all of them turned on, so I am very confused as to why I’m not getting any? If you could fix this, that would be amazing, because I have so many birthdays on here and it’s very annoying to have to look everyday to see whose birthday it is. Also, it would be very nice to have a choice for it to be annual or not annual, like I said I have many birthdays and it takes time to put them all in over and over again. Thank you for your consideration.
Wallpaper Bug
by Daringhorselover on 2020/02/21 17:00
Overall I really like this app but recently I haven’t been able to add or delete wallpapers. I tried contacting the creator to ask about the bug but I was never emailed back. I use this app to countdown to movie premieres and the photos included don’t really help me to differentiate my events. I don’t want to find another app because when I looked, none were quite contendable but I also need the wallpaper feature to work. Hopefully this review will catch their attention and they can fix it. :)
Set it & forget it! Love this app!!
by trenabee on 2020/02/06 16:07
Nothing better than being the the limo on the way to our daughters wedding and hearing the most “celebratory alarm” ever and wondering what is that sound! The moment I’d been waiting for for over a year was happening now and the COUNTDOWN app made me smile and reflex on how long I’d been wait for this very moment! I love this app. I’ve got it set for my retirement in 4 yrs and look at it often. The countdown adds to the anticipation of my upcoming “great events.”
A great app
by drbjbl on 2019/03/13 01:40
I love this app because I can have multiple events with reminders. I have reminders for birthdays, trips, special days for celebration. It was not complicated to figure out which was fantastic. There was even a brief overview of the features in settings. Some apps are so complicated I just have to delete. I do wish there were more wallpapers to use but other than that I can’t think of any improvements. Great job on the app.
Simple Countdown
by Ayame_Kitty on 2017/07/12 14:31
I like that you can change it from years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds with a simple slider. The app allows you to easily put multiple countdowns, and favorite one. It works in the notification screen so I don't have to open the app just to see how many days. If iPhones can support this, it would be great for a selected countdown to operate as a live background and/or lock screen.
Awesome for LDRs
by Woooooooooooooowwwww on 2018/11/14 23:45
I'm using this to count down the days until next get to I see my girlfriend. I share screenshots with her all the time! One suggestion is to have an option to share to a specific person. I only use the share feature to send a message to the same person all the time, but every time I tap share I need to type in her name for the sender. If there's a way to automatically set that it'd be great!
Useful app
by M_Cubed15 on 2017/11/27 14:32
I mostly like this app, however, there are a few annoyances that really get under my skin. The count-up/down screen defaults to only looking at days, where it would be more convenient for me to set my own default... not everything should be counted in days. Another thing that would be nice is the capability to add my own photo to the count-up/down screen. Lastly, the app crashes on me about once per week, even though I update the app when required and am running the latest iOS on my 6s. Other than those, app is great!
Good for Counting Days Passed
by KCJD_93 on 2017/06/09 21:19
I got this for the count up function so that I could keep track of how many days had passed since I set a goal. I like that it has a widget but for some reason, the widget seems to be counting one day short. I can't figure out why. For example, in the app, my count says 5 full days have passed, but the widget says only 4 days have passed. I can work around it but I just wish it was accurate. Other than that, no complaints. The app does just what I need it to do.
Great free app
by TENnant4eva on 2019/06/14 04:04
Overall the app is pretty good and I have no complaints. The only feature I would like to see added is a toggle option to “round up” the hours/minutes/seconds to account for another day in the widget. Currently it only displays how many days until an event, so if an event is 30 days and 8 hours away it’ll say 30 days but normally we would count that 8 hours as another day if we were just to count how many days until the event.
Great Countdown App!
by PTK2018 on 2019/06/10 18:50
I love this app because it allows me to easily keep up with the events in my life. It’s very quick and easy to add or delete events, and you can customize the background picture of each event in the app. It also lets you choose which events you want to be visible on your Apple Watch and on the live widget on your phone. I know you’ll love this app too, just give it a chance!
Apple Watch App Won’t Sync
by #Mmmbasstasstic# on 2018/08/13 18:19
I’ve used Countdown Star on my iPhone 8 Plus for a while now, and it’s pretty simple to use. I currently have 3 events I’m counting down to. When I recently got an Apple Watch Series 3 and saw Countdowns Star supports Apple Watch, I was excited to try it out. However, none of my events show up in the Apple Watch app. Whenever I open it up on my watch, it says “No Events.” I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled it several times, and checked to be sure there wasn’t a setting I needed to toggle on somewhere in the iPhone app or Apple Watch app, but I keep getting the same result. Disappointing.
The Wallpaper Thing
by benmaz on 2019/05/18 13:40
I started using not to long ago and I was wondering about the wallpaper mechanism and so I did an event that was not a real event, and then put a different wallpaper. When I checked my IPad the next day I did not change the wallpaper. This is saying I don’t understand if it is supposed to change the wallpaper or if It’s just an in game thing. Please respond and tell me, thanks! (P.S. if you tell me the wallpaper thing is only in game I will change to 5 stars)
Nice app... but
by libmusic18 on 2019/03/27 04:36
I really like this app. However, I have one problem. I wish they had a time option for weeks between days and months. Looking at weeks, idk, it just makes me feel more pumped up. Like “three weeks to go!” instead of “21 days to go” otherwise, I am very pleased with this app. If you add this in a update, plz send me a developers response! Anyway thank you, I’m enjoying this app! :)
Works Great But Please Add Some Features
by scottfillmer on 2018/10/30 10:48
The app does exactly what it says and visually it’s the best out there, but I would love to have the option to display 10ths of a second in the countdown, would like recurring events, and more customization on the countdown display like opacity color size of box placement other than top middle bottom etc, a way to add it to your calendar would be cool, make all those paid features that’s fine and I’ll buy the app. Thanks.
