Best App On the App Store 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Simply perfect! 🙌 Just download it now!!! I use this app every single day to organise my life. It’s easy to use, looks great and very reliable. No wonder it has millions of users, it’s truly amazing. One of the many great features of the app is that you can have multiple countdowns on one screen, which you can’t with any of the others. I use it for everything from doctors appointments to holidays. There is a great range of colours and icons too. I’ve upgraded to premium to get rid of the ads, show my events on all my devices and add more notifications. One criticism is that I would like to be able to customise each events notifications, but I honestly would not be without this app and I think it should be on everyone’s must have list. Also loving the new invites option, which lets you share your countdowns with friends and family. Superb, a massive well done!!! 👏👏👏 ❤️

What an app💜

WOW! I needed an app to tell me how long Christmas was and without having to log in and sign up it offered it to me straight away which already ticked a box for an astonishing app. This deserves great reviews and many users as it makes organising your events so much fun. Although I only got this app today, I already have got multiple events which you can’t get in a lot of event apps. This is truly amazing, as I don’t like organising events and looking at apps continuously, I haven’t had to put on my notifications because I don’t need persuading to organise my events as countdown makes it so easy. These are some of the positives of this amazing app. I was trying to think of something negative to say to improve this app , honestly you have made an amazing app already no changes needed.
Thank you .

The truest outstanding app! 😝

I think that this app is astonishing because you can count down how long it is until your favourite events. Also it is useful when you want to know how many days until ... without looking on google - which sometimes don’t give you the correct answer- or safari . I really recommend this app for various reasons and so it deserves the trophy of most useful app in the whole world of history . 5 stars and lets be honest I could give it LOADS more than what you can give it because 1: you can do any event you want to count down to ,2: you can type in any year you wish to count down till , 3: it is just a brilliant app to get and plus it is free so i recommend people to download countdown and start counting down different peoples events . 😊
