Event Countdown Widget
100,000 - 500,000 downloadsAdd this app to your lists
This is a countdown widget for your home screen to remind you of the meaningful dates in your life. It shows the number of days/hours left to a specified date.
You can add several countdown widgets to your home screen and you can easily customize them at the creation or later by tapping on them.
You need to:
- fill event title
- choose event date
After these optionally you can:
- choose time
- set title background color
- choose an icon (from the available ~140 pictures)
- choose from three counting modes:
-- day (counts in days only, use event date only with 00:00)
-- hour (counts in hours only, use event date + event hour only)
-- automatic (defult in days mode -> switch to hours mode in the last day -> finally shows minutes in the last hour, use event date + time too)
- set a reminder (in hours only)
- set repeating (in days only)
You can resize the widget if you have Android 4.1 version or above.* (watch the instruction video)
(* There is a resize bug in the Samsung TouchWiz launcher on Android 4.1.2! So if your layout doesn't change it's not my fault !!!)
How to install:
This is ONLY A WIDGET not a main application! You can add it by long pressing your homescreen -> then go to "Widgets" -> and choose "Event Countdown Widget".
Have fun! :)
◄◄◄ ---------- IMPORTANT!!!! ---------- ►►►
If you have any problem with the accuracy of the countdown widget, it is NOT the widget's malfunction! Either your service provider sent you a wrong date or your phone didn't syncronize the date the right way last time (there is a bug in some phone types' ROM)! In this case you should turn off the "automatic date&time" in the Date&time options menu!
This is an "under construction" beta app, so if you have any other problems or ideas please send an E-mail instead of downrating!
