Not in my Notifications on iPhone

I can’t get the badge/countdown icon to work. (I bought the upgrade for that feature). I think it’s because the app doesn’t appear in my Settings-Notifications. I’ve closed the app, deleted and reinstalled 10 times. Anyone else had this problem and fixed it? Customer support has been good about responding but hasn’t been able to fix it. Maybe it’s time to give up and ask for a refund.

UPDATE 3/9/18

I upgraded to 4 stars because I finally got the badge icon to work. The only thing I might have done differently is I made sure to CLOSE the app before I deleted and reinstalled it. So it works now. Strange though because when I open the app the countdown says one number and the number on the icon is one less than that. But I’ll take it. The customer service people have been responsive.

Perfect for Apollo 50th anniversaries

(First of all, the “most helpful” review is 2 years old, and says they’ll update it up from 3 stars to 5 if the app can share a countdown; it’s been doing that at least since July 2019, and it’s still 3 stars. Others are similar low reviews for no good reason.)

Bach to Apollo: If you use the Apollo in Real Time site and like following alone with NASA’s Apollo timelines, this app is critical. It’s the only one I found that lets you display in hours:minutes:seconds (with days turned off, so 3 days shows as 72 hours), before or after the event date. (And, you can set the font to Futura, the same one NASA used!) You can also download a copy of the mission patch from Wikipedia or NASA, view in Photos full-screen and screenshot it so it’s the right size, and use that as the background. If you need/want to, you can then generate a URL to share the image & time to another device (the only issue is placement of the time, but you can drag it back into position).

Everything I mentioned is in the free app - the only reason I’m paying for it is to support the author and hide the non-obtrusive banner ad at the top of the page.

I have been using this app for a while now, and me and my family always use this app as it is really nice to know how long it is until you get to go somewhere fun. I had no problems with the app, as other reviews have said, they had some major bugs. Those bugs must have been hit or miss because mine worked fine. Developers, please fix the bugs as quick as you can. They seem to be really bothering people. I will update when my current countdown is over, which is in 2 weeks, and see if the notifications work, because I forget from the last time I used this app. Everyone, stay safe!

Edit: I have just found out that you can turn reminders on and off on the app. I think many of the reviews were saying that their reminder didn’t work. All of you that want to customize things tap at the top of your screen (right below that adds) then press that gears!
