App Diner has introduced MyCountdown for iOS, their app that creates countdowns to all upcoming special events and occasions, such as holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries. Users can set each special event to countdown in years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes, and even seconds. Beyond simply creating the event, MyCountdown also allows users to upload their own pictures, via Photo Stream or built-in camera, for background and event photos, personalizing each event. Users can share completed events with friends via email, Twitter, or Facebook.
MyCountdown is easy to navigate using a menu at the bottom of the screen. To add an event, users simply choose the date and time of the event, as well as a title. Choices for the title include Anniversary, Birthday, Holiday, Party, Vacation, and custom options. The title setting also allows users to choose between the placement of the title at the top or bottom of the screen. To make event countdowns even more personal, users can choose their own cover and event images via their Photo Library, Photo Stream, built-in camera, and app Album options. App Album options include generic event background photos, such as balloons and streamers.
Additional features allow users to choose event font and background color. Using the touch of a finger, users can create their own shades of red, green, and blue. An unlimited number of color and photo combinations allow users to make each countdown unique and personalized. MyCountdown also offers an alarm-like notification feature, ensuring users will not forget events created in advance. Users can choose notifications for the day of, one day before, and two days before.
