Waiting for an important event in your life is never fun – in fact, it’s simply waiting that isn’t much fun anyway. Nevertheless, when something exciting is going to happen, you do tend to count down the months, days, hours and even minutes down to the exact moment that it comes to your life. Counting down to an event is something that has been around for a long time, with a time where people used to mark off important dates on their wall calendars and then crossing off the remaining days as they approached closer. Where technology has made so many improvements to other areas of our lives, it has also impacted this area, and if you own a smartphone, you’re bound to have some sort of a countdown app that will help you keep track of exactly when something of worth to you is going to happen. In its most basic form, these apps are usually countdown timers embedded within the stock clock app on your device.
