It's Just OK

It's cool, but you can't share an event on Facebook, or other social media. It would be great if you could do that, so that friends could share the countdown with you when you did. Plus, on 8.1, it's just a small tile, you can't adjust the size very much. Should be able to make it half a page if you wanted to. Not very versatile.

Pretty nifty app. But can't pin "since event".

Did not realize until purchasing the app the past or since events cannot be pinned. Only pinned future events that have expired will remain pinned but missing any assigned customized pictures. I was using this app to track shipping day for packages with out tracking nos. Must be a easy fix to include this feature similar to those on androids and ios.

I am having the same problem

I also am just seeing the orange block, despite having two active events running. No live tile updates. I have used this once before to create an event that I could then put on the Start screen as a live tile, but I can't see how to implement that feature anymore.

Not so good for me

I was very excited when I found this app because it lets you put name and picture but when pin, I only see an orange block. it does not show the actual picture of the event of the days left. I'm I doing something wrong? I see everyone giving good reviews . . .

Great application

It has everything I was looking for. The ability to put a title on an event, to have the event pinned to the start screen, and I can even put a custom background image on the event.
