Yes, your BlackBerry has a calender. But this is better than a calender. Yes, your BlackBerry will alert you half an hour or a whole day before an event. But this is better than a reminder. If you don't believe me, watch this.

For me personally, one of the problems I have with using my BlackBerry calender for reminders is that because I don't check my calender everyday, I sometimes forget I have an appointment until it reminds me 15 minutes before I need to be at it. For example, if it's your anniversary in 11 days and you know you'd be in trouble if you forget, this app might be for you! So, if you're like me and need to actually see what's coming up and you'd like to do that on your home screen so there's no worry about whether or not you need to check your calender, this is for you!


The CountDown Icon is a simple application. To start it up, all you'll need to do is name the event and select the time the event starts so that you can be alerted when you need to be. The icon acts as a countdown showing you the remaining days until your event. After your simple set-up, fire up the app and you're good to go!

Use it for:
  • Travel dates
  • Birthdays, Anniversaries
  • Holidays
  • Special Events
  • When to take a shower, etc.,
