Anyway, what CountdownTile does is allows you to have a tile for a specific event, telling you how many days you have left until a particular event. I have various ways to remind me of things – calendar appointment, to do list and a reminder tile. The latter is something that reminds me on a daily basis how close something is. Great for reminding myself to buy a present for someone’s birthday or to pack or how many revision days I have left, etc.
Each tile shows you how many days you have left, but it also allows you to add a picture which can further differentiate that event (and also pretty up your tiles).
The app is free allowing one tile as a reminder. If you want more there is a paid version but I can’t seem to find it. I seem to have bought the paid version since I have several tiles going on.
Price: Free (trial)
