    Default App Request: Christmas Countdown

    In the spirit of Christmas, do any devs want to make a Christmas countdown app? I was just thinking that would be cool

    I can whip this up but help me get a little creative. How should it look? Function? Etc?

    - Should it pop a reminder in your messages box daily?
    - Should it give a popup every morning?
    - Should it be standalone and just require the user to open it to see the countdown?

    That sounds a lot fancier than what I was imagining
    A popup would be cool... maybe have it open automatically every morning at a set time, maybe like 8am, and show a countdown over an animated gif image like this one:

    Haha, a while back I published something called "Lepricon" that was a homescreen shamrock icon counting down to St. Patrick's Day or halfway-to-St. Patty's day, and people thought it was stupid so I pulled it.

    I'll modify it for Christmas, it's already written, just need to change the icon and date.

    Great! Do publish it. There's nothing wrong with a few festive apps right?

    Your wish... is granted.

    Christmas Countdown Icon (for all devices and OS versions)



    This is a 10-minute app, so for now it's just a Christmas ornament icon that counts down. Will keep reading this thread and see what else can add to it that ppl ask for.

    After it's done it will be posted in CB store.

    I like the snow falling idea. Can't wait to see what comes out. Free is always good around the holidays

    Uh-oh, time to get some midnight oil for the lamp and work harder on this...

    how about throwing in a holiday version of I Charge Cool, that should be a great way to warm up the house on a cold winter night... at least if you have a Storm...

    Working on having the icon switch between different ornaments.

    Got a thought, the ball breaks open on christmas day revealing either Santa, or the message Merry Christmas? OR Maybe make the ball a present instead and it opens on Christmas Day?

    Like that.

    How about if for 98% of users it breaks open revealing a Santa saying Merry Christmas, for 1% of users it breaks open revealing a lump of coal, and for the last 1% it breaks open revealing the free Torch that CB is sending you?

    I'll rig it to make sure I'm in the last 1%, of course.
