Countdown‼'s review

    Published: 2015-02-24, by .

    Built for the Instagram generation, Countdown!! displays the time left until your special event.

    • Visually impressive
    • Nice images
    • Plenty of adjustments
    • Not very useful
    • Sharing options subpar

    "Countdown To Upcoming Events In Style"


    With Facebook integration and the ability to download images from a variety of sources, this pretty app creates glorious JPEGs with a digital timer tacked on. However, the impressive visuals are slightly ruined by a top banner ad, while editing sometimes leads to crashes.


    This app is visually stunning, and a beautiful way to build the tension before a birthday, concert or festival. The stock images are high res and there is a good variety of filters and adjustments to be applied.


    Countdown!! doesn't seem to be very useful except as a sort of countdown photo frame for a single image. While sharing is a great function, being able to send an animated GIF, complete with timer, would be even better.
