Sections include Clocks, Missions, Alerts, and Settings.

The Clocks section is where you'll find information regarding the upcoming events in the form of a countdown clock. This app is updated regularly, listing all the events their timings for each mission. The time of the event will be shown in three time zones including UTC, the local time at the location of the event, and the time in your area.

The Mission section shows not only upcoming missions but also recent ones. For recent event clocks, you'll find the timer doesn't count down, but rather counts up, stating the time elapsed since the launch.

Users can set up the app to receive push notifications for important events. Furthermore, you'll also receive notifications if there are any changes made to the plan.
