If your kids are anything like mine they relentlessly ask, “How many more days until ____?” Fill in the blank with everything you can imagine – birthdays, Christmas, go to the park, Halloween, etc. I decided I needed a better way to let them count down the days to the next exciting event in their lives than trying to quickly calculate and do some rounding in my head. I did some quick research and found an app for my iPhone called Count Days. This app lets you input an event and select a custom background for the event. Now my kids can go to the app and scroll through the important upcoming events in their lives and see how many more days until the event occurs. Awesome!
One thing that was a little hard with the app is finding a photo that allowed you to see the text alright. There were a couple of options for changing colors, but the white numbers didn’t show-up well with my images. So, I created some images in Photoshop that had a gradient overlay to darken the image and allow the text to be seen better. I am providing those backgrounds free for download.
