    Looks great.


    Terrible name. Can't find it in the AppStore.

    This down-vote has nothing to do with the app -- as I couldn't find it ( saw it on my desktop and browsed AppStore on my phone )

    The first step of getting people to like / upvote your app is enabling them to find it --> use it --> solve the pain.

    Step 1: Awareness ( thx PH )

    Step 2: Get app ( fail. )

    I imagine myself trying to tell anybody about this app. Oh, it's called Countdown.

    20 minutes of scrolling through other apps named countdown -- they either choose the wrong app or give up.

Hey Product Hunt Community! My name is Ed and I quit my job that I hated and started traveling the world. In that time I've found a new passion as an indie maker of apps! Countdown is the my first app, a simple way to tell how long you have until special events. I made Countdown to help me track exactly how long I had until I quit my job and start my travels! I hope you can find a cool use for it too. Keep an eye out for my next app: Moments! It is the spiritual successor to countdown which will have many more features and will be a more beautiful and fun way to track the moments that matter to you. Thanks for the support!

Congrats on your first app, Ed! Will be interesting to follow your journey on launching more stuff.

@leandro8209 Thanks for the encouragement Leonardo! I’m hoping to get the next app released in two months. Stay tuned for updates!

@ed67184262 For when you next launch on Product Hunt, we're making something, so you can track how it's performing. Would be cool for you to try it out. We would have launched it by then:

I gave you the upvote just for the promo video: "..Quit Work.." 🤣 hilariously..true. Does it also work on Apple watch?
IndieDevEdMaker@ed67184262 · Indie Developer
Haha thanks! Unfortunately no it does not work on Apple Watch 😕

It would be great if you could just type the date in, or display a calendar, rather than wheeling through a dates two years into the future.

Thanks for the critique and I agree it's not the best! I'm pouring most of my focus into my next app for now and I (think 🤞) I have a much better method to pick dates which still uses the date picker wheel but should require less scrolling.
