The Days Left Widget provides you with the tools to quickly create a homescreen widget that will remind you just how soon that big day is. Do you want to countdown until your birthday, vacation, or the last day of school? Do you want to make sure you don’t forget your anniversary or a friend’s birthday? If so, this Android widget is definitely for you.
To begin, long press on your Android device’s homescreen to bring up the “choose widget” option. Select Days Left and then the size of the widget you’d like (options are 1×1, 2×1, and 3×1). Set the date and then customize the widget’s appearance by choosing the color of the widget icon, an overlay image (over 100 to pick from), and creating the event title/description.
Tapping on the homescreen widget icon pulls up the full screen view where you can add notes (which uses and syncs directly to the Catch notes Android app), share it (via email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.), or make edits if anything has changed.
- Customization options let you match the widget’s appearance to your homescreen theme
- Multiple sizes, overlay icons, colors, etc.
- Add notes, share, and make edits to any previously created event
Areas for improvement:
- Notifications when dates are approaching (e.g. 1 day until…)
- Support for recurring events (e.g. monthly anniversaries)
Conclusion: An Android widget dedicated to ensuring that you never forget an important date again!
