Countdown the Days with Days Until

Are you still crossing the days off on the calendar in anticipation of your birthday? Perhaps the Winter Holidays? What about family holidays? Although it’s the tried and true method of counting down to an event, it’s oh so inefficient and inconvenient. Why not use your Android smartphone or tablet to do all the counting down for you?

Developed by XDA Senior Member plbelanger, the same developer behind AppGarden, Extensive Notes,Classic Notes, and Random, Days Until is an app that counts down days until significant events. The user interface is logical and simple, with Holo aesthetics, and it consists of 4 main components. The first is a screen of upcoming events, displaying a list of all countdowns the user has set. Pressing on an event brings the user to the second component, which is a screen that displays a more specific countdown of days, hours, minutes, and seconds. The app also shows an optional message and image that the user may want to attach. Events can also be shared with the share intent, if the user chooses to do so. The event creation screen is the third component, where users simply input the event title, additional notes, target date and time, and an image. The final component is the history tab, which displays all past events. Notifications will be appear when the countdown is finally over.

As with his previously developed and featured apps, plbelenger has done a great job at fusing practicality with simplicity. With a clean interface, Days Until is easy to navigate, and with its minimalistic nature, it’s a breeze to work with. Days Until is compatible with all devices running Android versions 2.2 and newer, and is free from the Play store. So if this sounds like something you would like to check out, head over to the original thread for more details.

Microsoft Reaches Pre-Install Agreement With New OEMs

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta. Having its top apps on Android was just a stepping stone...
