How Long Left is a simple app that helps you manage your time by displaying the time remaining of current calendar events.

It also includes a Today Widget, Siri integration, and an Apple Watch app, time remaining notifications, and more.

There is also an Apple Watch complication that, with an in-app purchase, can display a countdown for current and upcoming events.

Almost perfect

This the app I always dreamed of having since transitioning to full time remote work in a leadership position (with lots of meetings). So much so that I was going to build myself before doing one more search through the App Store and finding this one.

The only thing missing is a Home Screen widget so that you can see your upcoming events at a glance and know how much time until the next event. That would easily bump this already great app to 5/5.

You read my mind

I balance full-time and freelance work in a couple different fields, and I like to use the calendar to divide my day into blocks of time that keep me focused on deadline and prevent me from losing track of my whole day on one thing. When I got my first Apple Watch last fall, I looked everywhere for a complication that simply counted down to my next event or counted down the time left in my current event. The only one that came close was Fantastical, but it only did what I was looking for some of the time (depending on the proximity of what I had on my schedule, with no way for me to adjust that), so I was left only partially satisfied.

This one, though, is *exactly* what I’ve wanted. The iOS app seems perfectly sufficient at simply and elegantly displaying the same information, but the watch complication is what I was really after, and it’s the easiest IAP I’ve ever made. The way it handles both upcoming and in-progress events is perfect. Thank you for reading my mind.

(And no, I don’t know the developer even though this reads a little on the shill side. I’m just really delighted by this is all.)

Nearly perfect

This app works perfectly as advertised and is great for giving my a light at the end of the tunnel for my long hospital shifts. It just wish there was a way to add a custom event for, say, a much needed vacation coming up in six months to help me visual how close I’m getting to that event.
