Countdowns app make easy to remember about your essential dates without counting days in a calendar. Birthdays, holidays, new movie premiere, wedding anniversary, Superbowl finals, project deadline, current Pomodoro Technique time unit (called Pomodoro​), or new iPhone release date. You can also track the progress of a year, school semester or work week.

All this happens easily when you use your macOS with a quick glance at the Menu bar. Make this a ritual. At the beginning of work day expand a list of your countdowns and see how much time left for these important events. It helps you stay organized and better manage your time.

Countdowns come with a list of predefined countdown and progress items but you can easily add a new one. Countdowns can also be set as repeating events that happen daily, weekly, monthly or yearly.

Really like, but should allow two events in free mode

I am looking for a countdown ticker type app to live in my menu bar for events like vacations etc. This app appears to be what I need. I am willing to pay the 10 bucks for full version, but lite mode only lets you set one countdown and I'd like to see how app handles two or more countdowns before I pay 10 bucks!!!

Otherwise, this app look reallys good.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review.
Adding unlimited countdowns is (for now) only premium feature of Countdown app. So I intentionally make only one countdown available in the free version. But I understand your concerns. I know that this doesn't fully satisfy your​ needs, but you can look at the first screen on App Store. It shows how Countdown list looks expanded.
Nevertheless, I'm very happy that you like this app.
Have a nice day

Great app for tracking countdowns

Would LOVE it if it would sync it's countdown list to iCloud so you don't have to set it up from scratch if you get a new Mac.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for this review. Synchronization feature is already on a roadmap with high priority level.

Good concept

Bought the pro version. It would be great if menu bar display can be set to automatically rotate when there are multiple deadlines.

Developer Response ,

First of all, thank you for buying pro version. You are not the first person who ask for this feature (my really good friend is as well) so I’ll add this feature in next update.
