My Countdown: Written & Video iPhone App Review
My Countdown by developer Isaac Redman, is a newly-released app for tracking the time to an important event. It’s available for $0.99 through iTunes and was just released on November 17th. Is it worth getting this little counter app over the normal iOS Calendar alerts? Let’s take a look!
We have all been there before-new event on the horizon, and we have too many things to keep track of without forgetting. Many of us will turn to post-it notes, mark up our wall calendars, or just hope we remember it. The more tech-savvy individuals will power up their iOS devices and add in virtual reminders, through the defualt calendar or a custom app. One such application is My Countdown. It’s a brand-new app for counting down the days, hours and minutes until the next big event. It even supports adding in multiple events and countdowns through the simple menu. Just put in the date and time, along with an optional photo that serves as a custom background, and you are set! It will put out reminders to you to help you keep track of all the important days with ease. There’s also a nifty Facebook share feature, letting you share your next event with all your friends. Adding new events or checking out other options is easily done through a side tab that pops out and in with a finger swipe. All in all, My Countdown has a simple but very useful set of features to help you keep track of your next big event(s).
Appearance and Layout:
My Countdown features a simple yet professional user interface. There is very little clutter to mess up the onscreen display, with options easily hidden (if you desire) with the swipe of your finger. Adding new events and a fun background photo is a snap through the “+” button. Also, sharing through Facebook is very simple to do with the app. It’s polished app with a solid design, allowing for easy use even for new users.
Do you really need yet another reminder app for the iOS? It’s debatable, but we feel that many users will overlook purchasing this $0.99 one in lieu of other reminder tools already freely available, some by default on their mobile devices. However, My Countdown does offer a neat way to track your upcoming events, all on one handy page, and with your own custom backgrounds. If that is something you would like to see running on your iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad, then grab My Countdown from iTunes today!
My CountdownPhone app requires iOS 5.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone (3GS+), iPod Touch (3rd Gen +), and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review, as well as a video production fee.
