Dreamdays is an iPhone app that helps you countdown to the days that matter, like birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, or any other dates that are important to you. It features a beautiful design and customizable backgrounds for each event.
On the main screen of Dreamdays is the list of events you're tracking. The events you're counting down to will be in white and display the number of days left until it arrives, and events you're count up from will be in gold and display the number of days since the event happened. The exception is anniversaries -- those will be in red. When you tap on one, the same information will be decoratively displayed on top of the background image you chose for the event.
When adding an event, you assign a category to it: anniversary, birthday, holiday, school, or life. You can also create a custom category. If you're counting down to an event, there's an option have have it repeat annually. If you choose to set the event as the Cover, then the image and number of days will be featured at the top of the main screen.
- Supports countdown to events and counting up once they arrive
- Five default categories (Anniversaries, Birthdays, Holidays, Life, School) and the ability to add customized ones
- Voice memos to record your thoughts for each event
- Set your favorite event as cover
- Push notifications to remind you of an arriving event
- Ability to annually repeat an event
- Customizable background for each event
- Customizable order of events
- Color-coded Anniversary to distinguish it from all other events
- Color-coded past events to distinguish them from current events
- iCloud sync
- Passcode protection to keep your privacy safe
- Full support for iPhone 5
- Crashed the first time I used it when adding a photo to an event. When I relaunched, all the events I had added disappeared. (It has worked great since then)
- No badge on icon to show countdown to closest (or chosen) event
The bottom line
I've used a few different countdown apps in the past and what made Dreamdays stand out to me is it's beautiful use of photos. I love the cover image and the background photo when viewing an event. If you want to countdown the number of days until an event, give Dreamdays a try and let us know what you think!
