Description

Keep track of the time remaining until an event you care about - now with time remaining shown on pinned tiles and other user feedback incorporated. The time remaining on pinned tiles is updated about every 30 minutes. This time interval is set by Microsoft's Windows Phone policies to protect battery life and cannot be changed by the user. Backup and restore with SkyDrive. Large tile support on Windows Phone 7.8 and later. Easy adding of the event date/time and name from the main screen menu. Events are sorted in the order of their time remaining. Normally, expired events are not shown in the list, but you can turn them on using a command in the main menu. Expired events are shown with strikethrough text. Editing an event is easy from the details screen: just hit the pencil button and you'll see the edit controls. If an event comes due while the app is running, it will play one of four short sound effects. Events can be pinned to the start screen. Events can use "toast"-style reminders or "snooze"-style reminders. I wrote this application for my (at the time) 11 year old daughter who helped with the feature set and came up with the basic idea for the app. If you like this free app, please consider buying my other apps, called "Open" and "Tip Calc Pro". Countdown uses the flurry.com analytics engine to provide the developer with basic usage information. No personally identifying information or data entered into the app is collected. Countdown updates version 1.5: ------------------------------ - Added time remaining to pinned tiles Countdown updates version 1.4: ------------------------------ - Added ability to change event colors Countdown updates version 1.3: ------------------------------ - Added backup / restore with SkyDrive - Added small and wide tiles - Added colors

Color editing has been added. Live tile "time remaining" is now added. SkyDrive backup/restore newly available too. Please use the feedback mechanism in the app. Problem reports in reviews are near impossible to troubleshoot.

No Live Tile and a little disconcerting because it's not consistent with Metro design.

Doesn't show seconds in the countdown. Tried to use this as the countdown to new years but for this purpose it was effectively useless.
