Show a Time Countdown Until that Special Event
Do you have a special event happening in the future? Want to display a countdown timer until that event?
With the Countdown app, now you can!
You can grab it out of the App Store like any other app.
It has a few settings to customize:
- Orientation: horizontal/vertical
- Smallest Unit: days/hours/minutes/seconds
- Labels: for days/hours/minutes/seconds
- Separator: (custom character)
- Time Zone: (select one)
- Countdown date: Month/Day/Year (mm/dd/yyyy, example: 02/31/2020)
- Countdown Hour and Minute: if you want to set a specific time, besides the date
The orientation will allow you to choose whether you want to display it in a horizontal row or a vertical column.
If you choose minutes for smallest unit, you won’t see the seconds displayed on your Countdown app.
You can choose a different label for days, hours, minutes or seconds. That is if you want to use a fancier word such as “Moons” instead of days, or in a different language.
The separator can be a custom character like any of the following: “| > * →” or even a letter.
You can choose the time zone that applies to the place in the world where the event is happening.
And of course, the most important: you’re able to choose the exact date (and even time of day) when you want the countdown to stop. That is when the actual event is happening.
You can also customize the Countdown with the Style Dots. Choose background and text colors, spacing, corner radius and more, depending on each Dot.
Remember to activate the Dots on the Design Mode menu, otherwise you won’t see the Dots.
