So much better than a calender. If you are anticipating an event this is perfect.
Awesome App

Can’t Log In or Sync Backup

I used to have this on my phone for a while and it was decent but I don’t know if they changed anything but I cannot sign in or create a new account! Super annoying!
I like this app it’s pretty good.

Does anyone know how to make it your lock/Home Screen??
Excellent Count Down tool

Using it to count down to my retirement and I spend more time than I should checking it. Wish this app had a widget.

This app warms my heart it allows me to track my birthday and Anniversary. If anyone asked what countdown app to use, I would have to say Countdown Star.
great app!!

i love having this app to keep track of my important upcoming events and other dates!! it is seriously awesome and super customizable. it was not hard to figure out how to work it when i first got it, at all!! ❤️
It is Great

Trying to share the counter with friends.
by GP, Texas on 2021/03/26 14:24
I’ve seen other friends post our upcoming vacation with a countdown for all of us to stay in tune and excited. The countdown works great for me but doesn’t when I share or send to friends via Messenger/FB/text.
Works nicely
by Wwjunkie on 2021/03/25 14:01
Works as advertised. A simple app that does one useful little thing and does it well. Very happy.

Best thing ever
by alsjjyffgjhdvhbvuj on 2021/03/22 15:50
If you are like me you love to exited about things and count them down. This app is perfect for that, you can choose a background and everything. The one thing I did not love was that when time is up it does nothing not even an alert. I used it to count down my birthday and I really loved it though, I definitely recommend this app.
Surprisingly useful

I can’t just do simple things like create a countdown without the wrong one coming up when I open the app. Waste of time

The Final Count Downs
by Cee DLS on 2021/03/16 14:23
I love this app because not only does it provide an avenue for me to see the events I have in store it allows me a peace of mind to know my goals are on the way!! Well worth it 💕
My opinion
by notthissomebull!! on 2021/03/15 23:02
Should be some type of way for the countdown to me displayed on the Home Screen or Lock Screen
Would not let me edit
by Wysh88 on 2021/03/15 16:29
Could not customize.
Where’s the widget?
by Jelloskins on 2021/03/13 01:55
I see it referred to but how do I add the widget to the desktop or widget section? Otherwise the app is pretty useless if you need to open it to watch the countdown.

Ways to improve
by application of desired time on 2021/03/06 01:12
It’s a good app but it would be better if it had notifications to remind me of how much closer I am to vacation And if it would talk to me and say things like- ‘Christy, you are sooo close to your vaca!, do you know which swimsuits you are going to pack?, have you made arrangements for the pet and house sitter?’ Etc etc
Does what it says it does.
by Ramses7 on 2021/03/04 16:13
Nice simple and well executed app
Fix this please !!!
by NikkiV01 on 2021/03/03 16:21
Unfortunately I was adding some events I’m looking towards and this app must have come from the alternate reality that happened on the new year cause it’s
Love it!
by Kfrenchie on 2021/03/02 02:04
I’ve been using this for years! Helps when you have things to look forward to and I can see all my events in one place and count them all down! ⭐️

Nice app, easy to use. I keep a count down app for significant events & just transitioned from android, this seemed like the best/simplest option. My only complaint is that the time is that time is not displayed in months & years, there’s a place on the banner, am I missing something?
Wonderful

This app is so awesome and it’s great that u can do countdowns for multiple things. I love this app so much and it has helped me get through tough times, and just count down each day.
Great features
by Patti Cakes on 2021/02/03 13:30
Once you get the hang of it. Could be a bit more user friendly. I gave three stars because after I made what I wanted to share, the clock didn’t work, so, what’s the point?
It’s fine but really simple

Impossible to use!
by SawMikita on 2021/02/02 18:14
Set a countdown and when it got to zero, I wanted to erase that event. NO WAY to turn it OFF! After counting down to zero the clock just keeps ticking UP. “Time SINCE event”. Sent e-mail for advice, but no reply. A very ‘Bush-league’ app. Don’t use!
Widget

This app is amazing! It lets you create as many events as you want, choose any wallpaper, and it will save automatically.

Been using this app for several years as a count down to my retirement.
Difficult to use; doesn't calculate correctly
by 11dalya on 2021/01/17 01:15
It's the 16th. I set an event weeks ago, for January 20. Today Countdown says the 20th is in 3 days. Nope.
Does not calculate time zone differences.
by lsb!!! on 2021/01/15 09:43
Added inauguration as event. Selected east coast time zone for event time. My phone time is about 14 hours ahead. Countdown timer seems to be about 14 hours off.

Great app to help with the countdown. I can modify it for each countdown with pictures and countdown display.
Great and easy to use app! However...
by 🆓 Apps to Justice on 2021/01/09 16:08
...with the iOS 14 update, it would be really great if the app got widgets capabilities where you could place the countdown on your Home Screen as well! It’s nice having it in the sidebar, but it would be really convenient to have it on the Home Screen as well. Thank you for this app, Devs! :)
Makes waiting fun!

by ashleyroseinc on 2020/12/15 12:57
have to uninstall, the whole reason i use it is for the widget and it's not working at all anymore. it stretches out to where you can't even see the countdown and doesn't update to the most recent one on your list anymore.

Handy to have for instant event tracking but...
by Mwsllc on 2020/12/09 14:53
... it’s always off by one day in my book. When I set Christmas for example on Dec 25, on Dec 9 it tells me there are 10 days left. When it gets to Dec 24, it says 0 days left. There is still one day to go! I can “fix” this by adding a day to each date but it’s just frustrating it to have it be inaccurate. Perhaps there should be a setting that can be changed by the user foe this? Then folks could have it the way that makes sense to them. Just a thought...
Countdown fun!

This app is easy to use and has the features I want without a lot of extraneous stuff. Small advertising banner at the bottom. You can use your own pictures as a background. I used it to countdown to our granddaughter’s birth, and now it counts up so I know how many weeks and months she is.

It does the job with few options. Allows you to select time period display (years , months ,weeks, days, hours, minutes). I like being able to upload a photo for display background. I keep the app open and it has never crashed.
Quality Freebie!
by tikiriwa on 2020/10/25 15:53
I appreciate the ability to customize each countdown w personal photos & choice to count down in months, days, hours etc. Can have unlimited (it seems?) countdowns going at once. Appreciate this app has updated through years of IOS versions- while other freebies enter the dead app graveyard. Love it!

Great tool that lets you count DOWN or count UP! You can customize your app picture to account for the theme that you are counting. It is simple and easy to use and you can be using it literally 1 minute after you download it. No need to count that down since it is that easy! Get it and use it today!

by dlathrop80 on 2020/09/27 21:19

Nice app
by Calledn09 on 2020/09/27 19:06
As it goes, this is a pretty nice app. I can do without the ads and really not going to pay for premium when it can do nothing more or less than to Count Down from whatever date you set.
Amazing
by ShadowPixel on 2020/03/25 04:40
I got this app looking for a way to countdown the days until a game comes out. It does that and so much more. I went around putting in everyone’s birthdays and telling them how many seconds old they are, and how many seconds until their next one! For some reason that’s super interesting to me and I show everyone (to the point where they get annoyed because I’m showing them too much). The only downsides I’ve found is that the wallpapers you add are “zoomed in” to fit on your phones display. You cannot add a widescreen picture and just have black boxes on the top and bottom. And the other “problem” is that the app starts acting a bit weird if you add too many events in one sitting (but it fixes itself pretty quickly). There is also nowhere to provide feedback in the app, so I have to write a review to suggest a feature. I think it would be cool to swipe up or down while in an event to quickly switch events, instead of opening the menu and then clicking the next one. And adding a widescreen mode when you tilt your phone sideways would be nice too. Great app! It’s good enough to make me want to buy the no adds version, even though the adds are barely noticeable which is this apps best quality!!
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 2020/05/22 15:45
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!!
Very helpful in my case!
by Daniel from the Bible :) on 2018/02/23 18:15
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! 👌😁
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.
Countdown Made Simple and Fun
by infocus on 2020/07/02 05:50
Easy to use and fun to use and share! It can help motivation with goals setting. Select from a number of backgrounds available in the app, take your own picture, or use your own photos library. You can share your Countdowns with others by a simple click on the top menu: iMessages, email, Facebook, Twitter, Messenger, et al. With a simple slider you can to set the Countdown to years, months, weeks, days, hours and second. The free version has really unobtrusive ads at the bottom, unlike other free apps with annoying and incessant advertisements. For 99¢ you can get rid of the ads, which I did, not because the ads were bothersome, but rather because I wanted to make a contribution to the developers for such a fine app. Get the app and delight your friends with a personal countdown. ....................................... Issue with upgrading: It erased my Countdowns so I had to re-enter them in the upgraded app. Also my review of the original app did not transfer. .......................................
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.

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🙏🏼
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!
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!!
Missing features
by JennySykes on 2020/09/24 14:52
I really love the fact that you can customize the countdown so much. The ability to use any picture and move the countdown is awesome. This app is missing a couple key things though. First when selecting the date it would be helpful to have a calendar pop up to make it easier. Most importantly though the feature I wish this app had was an option to select multiple dates or have it repeat on certain days. I use this app to keep track of days till holidays/ birthdays which only come once a year but I’d also like to be able to keep track of when my next pay day is. If this app had those features it would be the best countdown app no contest!
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 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.
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.
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.
Good but could be better
by RDDFDFGF566#36 on 2020/08/01 13:30
I find that a lot of the buttons are really annoying and confusing. They are also in really weird spots and the icon doesn't describe it well. I would also like if they had more pictures for the background or at least let you add your own photos. Having little notes or something would also help. Over all it's just a countdown calendar app. That's basically it. I do like that you can control how it counts down, (months, hours, seconds, etc.) and other things but there are times where I honestly feel like just deleting the app.
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.
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.
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.
Time Zone completely off
by starface100 on 2019/09/03 07:13
The design and widget aspect of this app is amazing. However, the time zones don’t match up the count down... which is the sole purpose for an app like this one. For example, if you set a countdown for a date that already passed it’ll still say it’s 3 days until- even after adjusting the time to different time zones. I noticed because I had a countdown on the app that never reached zero even after the date and time had already passed. Disappointing!
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.
Handy to have for instant event tracking but...
by Mwsllc on 2020/12/09 14:53
... it’s always off by one day in my book. When I set Christmas for example on Dec 25, on Dec 9 it tells me there are 10 days left. When it gets to Dec 24, it says 0 days left. There is still one day to go! I can “fix” this by adding a day to each date but it’s just frustrating it to have it be inaccurate. Perhaps there should be a setting that can be changed by the user foe this? Then folks could have it the way that makes sense to them. Just a thought...
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. 🤷🏻‍♀️
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! 😊😊😊❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
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.
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.”
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.

So much better than a calender. If you are anticipating an event this is perfect.
Awesome App

Works great, let’s me count down to special occasions and the last day at my crazy job!😊👍

I like this app it’s pretty good.

Excellent Count Down tool

Using it to count down to my retirement and I spend more time than I should checking it. Wish this app had a widget.

Bright spot in my day!
Great and Awesome App
by DaEmeraldGamer on 2021/04/02 01:45
This app warms my heart it allows me to track my birthday and Anniversary. If anyone asked what countdown app to use, I would have to say Countdown Star.
great app!!
by instagram + youtube = life on 2021/04/01 01:06
i love having this app to keep track of my important upcoming events and other dates!! it is seriously awesome and super customizable. it was not hard to figure out how to work it when i first got it, at all!! ❤️
It is Great
by macKenziewood93 on 2021/03/27 23:00

Trying to share the counter with friends.
by GP, Texas on 2021/03/26 14:24
I’ve seen other friends post our upcoming vacation with a countdown for all of us to stay in tune and excited. The countdown works great for me but doesn’t when I share or send to friends via Messenger/FB/text.
Works nicely
by Wwjunkie on 2021/03/25 14:01
Works as advertised. A simple app that does one useful little thing and does it well. Very happy.

Best thing ever

If you are like me you love to exited about things and count them down. This app is perfect for that, you can choose a background and everything. The one thing I did not love was that when time is up it does nothing not even an alert. I used it to count down my birthday and I really loved it though, I definitely recommend this app.
Surprisingly useful

Confusing and hard to view

I can’t just do simple things like create a countdown without the wrong one coming up when I open the app. Waste of time

The Final Count Downs
by Cee DLS on 2021/03/16 14:23
I love this app because not only does it provide an avenue for me to see the events I have in store it allows me a peace of mind to know my goals are on the way!! Well worth it 💕
My opinion
by notthissomebull!! on 2021/03/15 23:02
Should be some type of way for the countdown to me displayed on the Home Screen or Lock Screen
Would not let me edit
by Wysh88 on 2021/03/15 16:29
Could not customize.
Where’s the widget?
by Jelloskins on 2021/03/13 01:55
I see it referred to but how do I add the widget to the desktop or widget section? Otherwise the app is pretty useless if you need to open it to watch the countdown.
Business day filter needed

Ways to improve
by application of desired time on 2021/03/06 01:12
It’s a good app but it would be better if it had notifications to remind me of how much closer I am to vacation And if it would talk to me and say things like- ‘Christy, you are sooo close to your vaca!, do you know which swimsuits you are going to pack?, have you made arrangements for the pet and house sitter?’ Etc etc
Does what it says it does.
by Ramses7 on 2021/03/04 16:13
Nice simple and well executed app
Fix this please !!!
by NikkiV01 on 2021/03/03 16:21
Unfortunately I was adding some events I’m looking towards and this app must have come from the alternate reality that happened on the new year cause it’s
Love it!
by Kfrenchie on 2021/03/02 02:04
I’ve been using this for years! Helps when you have things to look forward to and I can see all my events in one place and count them all down! ⭐️
Did Time shift ??
by L Y N 2 on 2021/03/01 13:41
I noticed the events I have set for this year 2021 is off by a day or two. It’s March 1 and I have an event for March 29- it’s counting down as 27 days left.

by Madikam on 2021/02/09 01:40
Nice app, easy to use. I keep a count down app for significant events & just transitioned from android, this seemed like the best/simplest option. My only complaint is that the time is that time is not displayed in months & years, there’s a place on the banner, am I missing something?
Wonderful
by sophiesage on 2021/02/06 02:36
Gives u something to look forward to when it’s about your retirement! This time not good at all. It’s how many months my precious Sophie Sage passed away.

by helenbajelen on 2021/02/04 14:39
This app is so awesome and it’s great that u can do countdowns for multiple things. I love this app so much and it has helped me get through tough times, and just count down each day.
Great features
by Patti Cakes on 2021/02/03 13:30
Once you get the hang of it. Could be a bit more user friendly. I gave three stars because after I made what I wanted to share, the clock didn’t work, so, what’s the point?
It’s fine but really simple

Impossible to use!
by SawMikita on 2021/02/02 18:14
Set a countdown and when it got to zero, I wanted to erase that event. NO WAY to turn it OFF! After counting down to zero the clock just keeps ticking UP. “Time SINCE event”. Sent e-mail for advice, but no reply. A very ‘Bush-league’ app. Don’t use!
Widget
by y? 4 fun of course on 2021/02/02 18:10
Would give this a higher review but I can't seem to get the widget to display time in months instead of days 🙁

This app is amazing! It lets you create as many events as you want, choose any wallpaper, and it will save automatically. I have had this app for a while and it helps me keep track of the days until an event comes, and man does that make the anticipation even more fun! I love this app and DEFINITELY recommend it. You wont regret it, trust me. ☺️
Retirement
by Algonklin on 2021/01/19 11:44
Been using this app for several years as a count down to my retirement.
Difficult to use; doesn't calculate correctly
by 11dalya on 2021/01/17 01:15
It's the 16th. I set an event weeks ago, for January 20. Today Countdown says the 20th is in 3 days. Nope.
Does not calculate time zone differences.
by lsb!!! on 2021/01/15 09:43
Added inauguration as event. Selected east coast time zone for event time. My phone time is about 14 hours ahead. Countdown timer seems to be about 14 hours off.
List if events don’t show on my Apple Watch

Great app to help with the countdown. I can modify it for each countdown with pictures and countdown display.
Great and easy to use app! However...
by 🆓 Apps to Justice on 2021/01/09 16:08
...with the iOS 14 update, it would be really great if the app got widgets capabilities where you could place the countdown on your Home Screen as well! It’s nice having it in the sidebar, but it would be really convenient to have it on the Home Screen as well. Thank you for this app, Devs! :)
Makes waiting fun!
by kait meeker on 2021/01/05 14:02
I really enjoy watching the time count down to trips! I like how I can pick my background picture! This really helps when I’m trying to lose weight before a vacation!

I got this for a special countdown, but there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to change my favorite it defaults to my birthday which is not my preference.

I enjoy this app but it’s difficult to see the options at the top because the colors are too dark.
the widget stopped working
by ashleyroseinc on 2020/12/15 12:57
have to uninstall, the whole reason i use it is for the widget and it's not working at all anymore. it stretches out to where you can't even see the countdown and doesn't update to the most recent one on your list anymore.

Handy to have for instant event tracking but...
by Mwsllc on 2020/12/09 14:53
... it’s always off by one day in my book. When I set Christmas for example on Dec 25, on Dec 9 it tells me there are 10 days left. When it gets to Dec 24, it says 0 days left. There is still one day to go! I can “fix” this by adding a day to each date but it’s just frustrating it to have it be inaccurate. Perhaps there should be a setting that can be changed by the user foe this? Then folks could have it the way that makes sense to them. Just a thought...
Countdown fun!

This app is easy to use and has the features I want without a lot of extraneous stuff. Small advertising banner at the bottom. You can use your own pictures as a background. I used it to countdown to our granddaughter’s birth, and now it counts up so I know how many weeks and months she is.

Quality Freebie!

I appreciate the ability to customize each countdown w personal photos & choice to count down in months, days, hours etc. Can have unlimited (it seems?) countdowns going at once.

Great tool that lets you count DOWN or count UP! You can customize your app picture to account for the theme that you are counting. It is simple and easy to use and you can be using it literally 1 minute after you download it. No need to count that down since it is that easy! Get it and use it today!

by dlathrop80 on 2020/09/27 21:19
I want a countdown I can set as my wallpaper on my home screen. Something I see every time I open my phone. If you want an app you need to go look at? Probably fine.
Nice app
by Calledn09 on 2020/09/27 19:06
As it goes, this is a pretty nice app. I can do without the ads and really not going to pay for premium when it can do nothing more or less than to Count Down from whatever date you set.
Amazing
by ShadowPixel on 2020/03/25 04:40
I got this app looking for a way to countdown the days until a game comes out. It does that and so much more. I went around putting in everyone’s birthdays and telling them how many seconds old they are, and how many seconds until their next one! For some reason that’s super interesting to me and I show everyone (to the point where they get annoyed because I’m showing them too much). The only downsides I’ve found is that the wallpapers you add are “zoomed in” to fit on your phones display. You cannot add a widescreen picture and just have black boxes on the top and bottom. And the other “problem” is that the app starts acting a bit weird if you add too many events in one sitting (but it fixes itself pretty quickly). There is also nowhere to provide feedback in the app, so I have to write a review to suggest a feature. I think it would be cool to swipe up or down while in an event to quickly switch events, instead of opening the menu and then clicking the next one. And adding a widescreen mode when you tilt your phone sideways would be nice too. Great app! It’s good enough to make me want to buy the no adds version, even though the adds are barely noticeable which is this apps best quality!!
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 2020/05/22 15:45
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!!
Very helpful in my case!
by Daniel from the Bible :) on 2018/02/23 18:15
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! 👌😁
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.
Countdown Made Simple and Fun
by infocus on 2020/07/02 05:50
Easy to use and fun to use and share! It can help motivation with goals setting. Select from a number of backgrounds available in the app, take your own picture, or use your own photos library. You can share your Countdowns with others by a simple click on the top menu: iMessages, email, Facebook, Twitter, Messenger, et al. With a simple slider you can to set the Countdown to years, months, weeks, days, hours and second. The free version has really unobtrusive ads at the bottom, unlike other free apps with annoying and incessant advertisements. For 99¢ you can get rid of the ads, which I did, not because the ads were bothersome, but rather because I wanted to make a contribution to the developers for such a fine app. Get the app and delight your friends with a personal countdown. ....................................... Issue with upgrading: It erased my Countdowns so I had to re-enter them in the upgraded app. Also my review of the original app did not transfer. .......................................
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🙏🏼
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!
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!!
Missing features
by JennySykes on 2020/09/24 14:52
I really love the fact that you can customize the countdown so much. The ability to use any picture and move the countdown is awesome. This app is missing a couple key things though. First when selecting the date it would be helpful to have a calendar pop up to make it easier. Most importantly though the feature I wish this app had was an option to select multiple dates or have it repeat on certain days. I use this app to keep track of days till holidays/ birthdays which only come once a year but I’d also like to be able to keep track of when my next pay day is. If this app had those features it would be the best countdown app no contest!
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 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.
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.
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.
Good but could be better
by RDDFDFGF566#36 on 2020/08/01 13:30
I find that a lot of the buttons are really annoying and confusing. They are also in really weird spots and the icon doesn't describe it well. I would also like if they had more pictures for the background or at least let you add your own photos. Having little notes or something would also help. Over all it's just a countdown calendar app. That's basically it. I do like that you can control how it counts down, (months, hours, seconds, etc.) and other things but there are times where I honestly feel like just deleting the app.
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.
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.
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.
Time Zone completely off
by starface100 on 2019/09/03 07:13
The design and widget aspect of this app is amazing. However, the time zones don’t match up the count down... which is the sole purpose for an app like this one. For example, if you set a countdown for a date that already passed it’ll still say it’s 3 days until- even after adjusting the time to different time zones. I noticed because I had a countdown on the app that never reached zero even after the date and time had already passed. Disappointing!
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.
Handy to have for instant event tracking but...
by Mwsllc on 2020/12/09 14:53
... it’s always off by one day in my book. When I set Christmas for example on Dec 25, on Dec 9 it tells me there are 10 days left. When it gets to Dec 24, it says 0 days left. There is still one day to go! I can “fix” this by adding a day to each date but it’s just frustrating it to have it be inaccurate. Perhaps there should be a setting that can be changed by the user foe this? Then folks could have it the way that makes sense to them. Just a thought...
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. 🤷🏻‍♀️
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! 😊😊😊❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
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.
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.”
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
