Countdown++ iPhone App Review

For someone who majored in history, I can be pretty pathetic when it comes to remembering important dates. Sure, I can tell you all about the death of Cleopatra or the Battle of Hastings, but ask me to remember the birthdays of my friends and family, and I fail.

Countdown++, developed by Sergey Astakhov, is my new solution for reminding myself about important upcoming dates. With just one look in your pocket, you’ll be reciting exactly how many weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds remain until the target date.

Since I’m not good at remembering dates, you can imagine how happy I was when Facebook came along during my college days, mining and aggregating all the birthdays of my friends so I didn’t have to. Countdown++ does you one better, though: you can centralize all important dates, from birthdays to anniversaries to upcoming events.

Countdown++ is the perfect option for counting down to the next big blockbuster movie in the summer season, reminding yourself about upcoming holidays, and more. Best of all, you can create an unlimited number of events, making it feasible as a central reminder app for every personal and business event in your life.

With 20 themes, 100 event icons, and the ability to create custom icons with your camera, there are tons of little touches that make Countdown++ easy to browse and find the event your looking for in your countdown library.

Oh, and did I mention that you can share all these countdowns with friends, and also select sound effects to play during notifications?

Whether you want to get amped up for the premiere of your favorite TV show, count the days left in summer vacation, or even set up a countdown for some far future event like the American Tricentennial, you’ll get hooked on this easy to use countdown iPhone app.

Countdown++ is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.
