Big Days of Our Lives Countdown Clock
iPhone Video App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
Big Days of Our Lives Countdown Clock, developed by Pro Sellers World LLC, is a useful and well-designed countdown app for iPhone. Whether you’re looking to keep track of events in the near future or something that’s going to occur years down the road, this is definitely an app to consider.
Concept and Functionality:
Big Days of Our Lives Countdown Clock aims to help users get in touch with their creative side by allowing them to get creative with countdown timers. While the app itself doesn’t really feature anything that’s revolutionary in the way of countdown apps, it is unique in the sense that it focuses heavily on aesthetics. What I mean by this is that Big Days of Our Lives Countdown Clock allows users to include special background images for their countdown timers.
One thing I really like about Big Days of Our Lives Countdown Clock is the ability to see a summary of all of your countdown timers on the main page. Creating a new event is as simple as setting a new alarm on your iPhone.
All you have to do is give your event a name, select the date, choose a background image, and decide whether or not you want the event to repeat and if you want to be reminded when the event is nearing. Once your event is saved, Big Days of Our Lives Countdown Clock starts the countdown immediately.
Tapping on the event will display your background image with the countdown timer superimposed on it.
Regarding images, users have a few options to choose from as far as image sources. Big Days of Our Lives Countdown Clock includes a few basic images to start, but if you want more you’ll have to download individual theme packs or spend $10 to unlock all available images.
Users can also upload images from their iPhone, which does add a pleasant bit of customization to the process of creating timers.
Aside from the ability to choose from a wide variety of background images, Big Days of Our Lives Countdown Clock doesn’t really offer much in the way of features. This is unfortunate, mainly because Big Days of Our Lives Countdown Clock really is a pleasant app to use.
To make it a truly unique and outstanding countdown timer, I’d love to see a variety of customizable countdown clocks as well as various background images.
Though the wide variety of photos that are included in Big Days of Our Lives Countdown Clock are useful, they take up a tremendous amount of space on the iPhone. The app itself is over 100MB in size, which is completely unnecessary for such a simple countdown clock. Instead, my suggestion is to design the app so that background images are downloaded as the user selects them. Or, include the basic images and make it so the extra theme packs are downloaded when purchased.
Big Days of Our Lives Countdown Clock is available to download from the App Store for $0.99, which is a very decent price. However, the optional background image theme packs will cost you $10 if you choose to unlock all of them at once or $1.99 individually. Personally I don’t believe the app is worth that much money as far as in-app purchases, but it’s a decent countdown clock even without the extra theme packs.
Big Days of Our Lives Countdown Clock requires iOS 5.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
