    Hello all
    CountMyDays is a counter-type app that tells you exactly how much time is left until a date of your choosing.
    I just submitted it to the store, would appreciate any feedback and criticism on it.
    It includes LiveTile support by showing how many days until the closest event date.

    Store link (WP 8.0): CountMyDays | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    If you would, any feedback can be sent to victordaniel@outlook.com

    Screenshots follow:

    What do you mean? After you've added an event, tap on it in the My Dates screen and it will take you to your countdown, just like the third screenshot posted.

    I'm actually working on that feature, so far the live tile only displays the soonest event, but by the time I'm done, there should be an option to pin your favorite dates

    I have submitted an update to the store that allows the user to pin individual events to their start screen. The update will be live in a few hours as soon as it passes certification.

    I have the update now.. But the live tile still won't show the hours, min's and sec's... Maybe because the live tile is just only medium? Also on the start screen it has become hard to open ant of my set dates.. in the beginning it only took one slight tap and voila it would open, but now i really have to press on the screen... Just giving feedback

    The live tiles are made to only show the amount of days left, since Windows Phone only allows updates to live tiles every 30 minutes. WP 8.1 supposedly reduces the limit to updating every minute, but since it's not out there yet, my app doesn't support it. Once I update the app for 8.1, I'll try to include updating the tile with hours and minutes.
    It's odd that selecting an event would be affected in this update, I'll look into it ASAP.
    Thanks a lot for the feedback, with it I can work on improving or fixing any details I might've missed :)

    i love the app so you'll be hearing from me :D and the fact that it's just 1 mb or less is very handy... Waiting for 8.1.....

    The more feedback the better.
    Is the problem with selecting an event happening when you tap directly on the event name? I know that tapping on the event date under the name does nothing, but tapping on the event itself shouldn't be delayed or troublesome...

    Weird... Regardless, I've made it so that tapping the date also takes you to the event page. As soon as I finish tweaking some of the live tile update things, I'll upload it again.
