What’s New

Version 4.0

This is a much, much better app, and there are so many new things. Here we go!

• Added new Home Screen Widgets for iOS 14 to show off your events:
•• Small widgets show the event's name, countdown timer, and current weather at the location. Medium widgets also show the location.
•• There's a new setting in the app to show event images in the Home Screen widgets and Today View. They look great with the images on!
•• You can add as many widgets as you like, so you can keep track of all your important events right on your Home Screen.
•• Tapping a widget will launch the app and show that event full-screen.
•• Note: Weather will clear after four hours as it's no longer relevant. Launch the app again to show updated weather.

• Added an events map so you can see where your events are all over the world!
•• You can access it via the little globe icon.

• If you agree to let the app use your location (only while you're using the app, because privacy), sorting by location will sort events by their distance from your current location. Sweet, huh? (If you don't grant permission, sorting by location is done alphabetically by location name.)

• The app is now localised into French, because I've been learning French. German next! If you spot an error, please get in touch via Twitter: @WhensThatApp
• Dates, times, temperatures etc. all now use your device's region settings.
• Weather details are now in your preferred language. Tu vas avoir très froid dans cette robe! (That's your actual French.)
• You're now asked if you want to lose any changes you've made to an event.
• New button in the top-right to edit an event when it's displayed full-screen.
• In the events list the cover event now has a swipe option to show it as the cover, as if you'd tapped the button at the top of the list.

• Complete rewrite of the way data is stored and retrieved.
• Multiple little issues in the background have been fixed.

Some of your settings might have been reset to their defaults, like showing temperatures in Fahrenheit rather than Celsius. Sorry about that; just pop into the Settings screen and change them.

Some bugfixes:
• Fixed: When you get a notification that it's time for an event, tapping it shows you that event full-screen.
• Fixed: When you deleted all events from your iPhone, the Watch would say it was loading events. It now says there aren't any, which is a little less 'fake news'.
• Fixed: Authentication, if enabled, is now performed before the main events screen is displayed, so you shouldn't see a flicker of the events before it appears.
• Fixed: The app icon shortcuts weren't working, so you couldn't create a new event or view the cover event by holding down on the icon. For shame!
• Fixed: The file sizes for images sent to the Watch were waaaayyyy too large for my liking: Squished! Should be about 10x quicker to transfer now: Bonza!

• It wouldn't be an update if there weren't weather fixes!:
•• Fixed: Sunrise & sunset times in the weather screen didn't take account of your current timezone, so sunrise could maddeningly be at 11pm. It now correctly shows the times at the event's location.
•• Fixed: The wind direction is meteorological - 315º is a NW wind gusting towards SE - so the arrow should point where it's going to, not where it's coming from.
•• Fixed: When enabling weather on an event for a new location you would get an error message while it was in the process of being retrieved. This was absurd, and the error has been banished.

I have used other countdown apps and found them to be lacking in features. This app is perfect for counting down to holidays and other events! It's great that you can also see the weather! A must have.

Easy to use, essential info clearly displayed.
1 of the few apps I've bought, that I get a lot of use out of. Keep up the good work

Perfect, just what I needed

Nice simple interface and watch support. Just what I needed to help remind me how many days training I have left for my next Triathlon or Trip to the F1.
