Countdown to the important days in your life.
Conferences, Birthdays, Vacations. Anything.

Countdown makes counting down those important days easy. Simply title your Countdown, give it an emoji, and pick the date for your Countdown.

Use Apple Watch to track a specific countdown right from your watch face with the Countdown Complication, or view more info about a Countdown with the Watch app.

Add the Countdown widget to your Today View to track your Favorite countdowns right from the lock screen.

Sync your Countdowns between your iPad, iPhone, and Mac using iCloud, free of charge.

Use Siri Shortcuts to find out when a specific Countdown is over, or when all of the Countdowns in a category will end, or even use Up Next to find out how long until your closet Countdown is done.

Import Calendar Events to create Countdowns, or save your Countdowns to a Calendar of your choice.

No nonsense

This app is lightweight and awesome. Simplicity at its finest. Does exactly what it says it will do.

Mainly, though, I saw the developers’ post on Reddit about the new update, and I’ll always help further the agenda of another Redditor.

Developer Response ,

Thank you! We’ve worked hard to keep the experience simple for you.

iOS sync doesn’t work

iOS platform sync doesn’t work across iPhone and iPad so whatever I update either from one device, it doesn’t sync to iCloud and old data overrides on another device when I open the app (and have to manually command iCloud sync, by the way)
Very frustrating and disappointed since I’ve been looking for an app the counts down deadline and also I can add it from/to calendars.

Watch complication doesn’t update automatically

Love this app but having to manually launch the app on my phone every day to make sure the watch complication is current is a real drag. Other apps have complications that update in the background.

Developer Response ,

Hi! We’d love to help get the watch complication working properly for you. Please send us an email at!
