Wallpaper option is broken

It's not a bug. It's just horribly designed. I use this app to countdown for upcoming video-game related things, and opening this app and seeing how much time is left gets me hyped. It would get me even more hyped with a wallpaper... that is if the option wasn't broken. I have to crop the picture into a square shape, and when I apply it the image is all zoomed in or something. I know, this review I'm writing sounds unprofessional. But I would appreciate it if this wallpaper issue was fixed. Other than that, everything is actually really useful. It's fun seeing what "2 weeks 1 day 11 hours 3 minutes 50 seconds" equates to in just seconds.

Overall, if you don't care for wallpaper, then it's a perfect app to use.

Hello xXx_Kyle_xXx,
A recent update (2.6.2) should correct the issue when you add a photo to the app. You'll no longer be asked to crop or zoom.
Best Regards,

It’s great, minor issues

Overall, I really enjoy this app. But could you please add an annual/not annual button? This might sound crazy, but I put all my Beanie Boo’s birthdays in this app because I am a Beanie Boo addict! If I want my Beanie Boo’s birthday to be exactly next year, I have to add another event for the next year. It becomes really annoying because I have close to 60 Beanie Boo’s and I don’t want to create another whole event for just that one. You can add an annual button and if you click it, you and say every day, week, month, and year. If it is not annual you simply just press the not annual button. That would be very handy to me! I really don’t want to set up 60 events for every year because that takes up time, and time is important. Please add this handy addition because I think it would benefit me and all who downloaded Countdown Star. Sorry if my review didn’t make much sense and if you thought my addition was redundant. Personally, for a ten year old, I can come up with great ideas and solutions. I am very mature and intelligent, not to brag, but it’s true. So please add the annual/ not annual button to the app! Thank you for reading my long review and have a very nice rest of your day! Again, thank you!

Very helpful in my case!

So I was constantly struggling to find an effective and efficient way to keep track of my busy recovery schedule especially since it was stuff with tons of appointments and just family activities... The fact that I am recovering from a Traumatic Brain Injury my memory has been a bit weaker than before. I lost big portions of memory due to the fact that pieces of my brain were damaged resulting in these pieces getting removed! In this case I was looking for a great way to Lee track of my schedule! Thank God that this app was free and so good! Can’t complain because I tried multiple others which always lacked an aspect this one presents! Let’s just say this app is “in it to win it”! Give it a shot! 👌😁
