Counting down the days to an event can be laborious, but thankfully we now have our smartphones to do it for us. That’s exactly what Xday does, a free Android app for those of you who are looking forward to your next birthday, holiday or important date. A tool for crunching time and numbers, Xday’s primary function is to count down the time till a specific date.
Being an Android app, this goes hand in hand with a widget which you can put on your home screen.
From then on checking how long till the big day only requires a glimpse, but Xday also has a few other tricks up its sleeve. The app can also work out other time-based calculations, such as how many minutes are left in a set period, how many days you have lived in your life and any other questions you decide to ask. You can save multiple countdowns or calculations for retrieval later, which makes the app perfect for keeping track of multiple dates and events.
This free version uses adverts to generate revenue but you can unlock the full version for less than $1 if this bothers you. The app is open source, and works on Android version 2.2 and later.
