You don't have to be a professional event planner in order to be busy planning a big event, gathering, or party, and when doing so it's easy to start feeling flustered and overwhelmed. The Event Planner, Checklist & Countdown Lite app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone has been created to help you plan all your events in a smooth and user-friendly way. The app is filled with features that help you organize along the way and keeps you on top of all the tasks.
Instead of just rushing around at the last minute and throwing together at an event, things can go a whole lot smoother when a little planning is done. That's where the Event Planner, Checklist & Countdown app can come into effect. You will be able to use this app to do all your planning, make use of the checklists of tasks, and clearly view the countdown to the big day/night. Go ahead and add in your event and then edit it as often as you like. Give each event its own title and category, set the time and date, and even add photos. Once these first steps are done you’re ready to get on your way.
It should be noted that this is the free version of the app and that means a number of features and tools are locked. If you want to be able to access all the app has to offer you'll need to make an in-app purchase of $0.99. The app scores just 2.5 out of five stars from users and customer comments are quite mixed. It seems as though the app could still do with some refinement and changes. It’s also important to mention this app hasn’t been updated in a few years, so at this point it feels extremely dated.

Using the App
I will say that the Event Planner, Checklist & Countdown app is extremely easy to use. There are a number of these types of apps that have so many tools and features that you need a manual in order to figure them out. That isn’t the case with this app; you can add in details such as location details, budget notes, tasks, and keep track of your guest list. You can set up repeat events, share and publish them by email, Twitter, and Facebook, and use the passcode lock on the app. If you'd like to receive push notifications you'll need to purchase the full version.
