Freebie: Countdown App Tracks Days Until Your Vegas Visit
Part of the thrill of visiting Las Vegas is the anticipation before you arrive.
Vegas fans have myriad ways of keeping track of how many days are left before the fun begins (big, red Xs on a calendar, anyone?), but we like a simple, free app, Big Day Lite.
Big Day Lite is easy to use, and allows for some customization, like using your own photo as a background for the counter. “Keep it clean,” we said, not really meaning it.
Once the app is installed on your smartphone, just name your event and enter the date. The app does the math, which we like, because math isn’t our thing. We hate math so much, we even hate the idea of having ADD.
Changing the background image is just a matter of picking one from your phone’s photo album.
Big Day Lite has a robustier (probably not a word) version, for 99 cents, with more functionality. We didn’t try it, because free almost always wins.
With the free version, you still get to chance the color of the counter if you like, and there’s an alert setting, as if you need that when it comes to a Las Vegas trip.
The app makes it easy to save your countdown image to share with friends, especially the ones you want to taunt because they’re not visiting Las Vegas with you.
Here’s the Big Day app official site. Did we mention how free it is?
