Does everything that I need, but...

This app works as advertised. It’s simple to add and set dates with a time-of-day option. If you include the time, you’ll see the hours and minutes countdown too. You can choose different color backgrounds for the countdown window. The only negative for me… and it’s a biggie considering all the stuff I have on my desktop… is the countdown window is large and can’t be resized or docked or made invisible until you need it. It’s just there. You can move the windows around and make them “transparent”, but that really doesn’t help. Dockability or resizeability would make this a five star app for me.

Outstanding App!

I love that you can name each countdown and have multiple runnning simultaneously. It gives you options to change the color, make the countdown a floating window (shows over other open applications) or not (can be covered by other open applications), transparent, and countdown to exact minute. You can also set the countdown to notify you about the event. Looks very nice on my screen and cost me very little money. It would be even better if it counted down to the exact second, but this is an outstanding app because I NEVER leave reviews!

Simple, Clean…Great!

I like a nice, simple, clean app that does the one thing it is supposed to do just right! This is one that fits the bill; clean design, very usable, and after looking at a LOT of approaches to the task of counting down to an important event, THIS was the best I found, and I’ve been very pleased! The only reason There is still room for expansion to make it even better! I’d like to see a lot more custimization abilities, but that is just me wanting to use it more! As it stands, I’m extremely pleased, but would like to see how the build on it. Good stuff!
