Countdown Data


How can I backup my countdowns?

Your countdown data is automatically included in your device backups.  If you’re backing up your device using iCloud or iTunes, then you won’t need to do anything else to backup your events.

If you’re not backing up your phone, you can learn more about automatic backups here.


Where are my countdowns stored?

Your countdowns are stored locally on your device and synced to your personal iCloud account, if you're logged in.



Adding Countdowns

Adding new countdowns in Days Since is easy.

  • First, open Days Since and tap the + button in the upper right corner.
  • The ‘Edit Event’ screen will appear next.  You can enter your event details by tapping on the individual items.  For instance, tap on ‘New Event’ to change the event title.  Tap on the date to change the date you’d like to countdown or count up to.
  • When you’re finished entering your event details, tap on the ‘Days Since’ back button to view your newly created countdown.  Tap on the ‘Events’ back button will return you to your event list.

iCloud Troubleshooting


If you’re having trouble getting your events to show up on both devices:

  • Make sure both versions of Days Since are updated to the latest version in the App Store.
  • Make sure both devices are signed into the same iCloud account
  • Syncing happens when the app is first launched so to trigger a refresh, hit the home button on your device and re-open Days Since.
  • Check your connection.  If you have multiple events with custom backgrounds it may take a few moments to sync on a poor cellular connection.
  • If you’re still having trouble syncing, follow these steps while connected to wifi:
    • Add a new event on your first device.
    • Close and re-open Days Since on your second device to see if it appears.
    • If the new event appears, try editing your existing events (change the time format or title) and relaunching the app on your second device to see if they appear.
  • If you’re still having trouble syncing contact us.

Version 5.0.0 - What's New



  • iCloud Syncing is here!

    • Your countdowns now automatically sync between devices!

    • All of your countdowns remain private and are only viewable by your iCloud account.

    • For example, once you open Days Since on your iPhone your countdowns will be sent to the cloud. Then once you open Days Since on your iPad the countdowns from your iPhone will automatically appear!

    • Syncing is triggered once the app is opened, re-open the app to refresh your list.

    • Note: Deleting events is not yet synced. If you delete an event on your iPhone you will also have to delete it from your iPad.

    • If you’re still having trouble, check out or frequently asked questions or contact us.

  • Days Since now has a cleaner look and feel. We’ve made a bunch of tweaks to the UI to make it easier to use.

    • Add or remove it from the notification center widget (if available)
