Looks nice but doesn't work
By , for WP 3.6.1

First had pretty good feeling about the plugin but then started the bugs to surface and didn't see end to those... Had to uninstall after the counter started randomly throw out people to non-existing pages.

Buggy like hell
By , for WP 3.5.2

Buggy like hell. Destroyed our launch by constantly misbehaving. Even though the option of "hide timer after it expires" was chosen (and not the "redirect to URL" option, it kept redirecting visitors off to a non existent page adding the word "false" (eg. our sales page was at example.com/sales/ and visitors were redirected to example/com/sales/false - which resulted in a 404 error.

And the HUGE bug in the plugin, is that our server is in PST timezone. So for someone who visited from a timezone much ahead (say, like GMT+8 - like London, UK), the plugin was redirecting to the fake page, but when we tried it, it would load fine because it hadn't expired for the visitor in the "right" time zone.

Bottomline: Doesn't matter if it's free, but even if they paid us, we wouldn't use it.

Simple and Slick
By , for WP 3.6

After spending an hour looking for a suitable countdown plugin, I found Uji Countdown. This is exactly what I need! Other plugins were clunky, coded poorly, incomplete, and difficult to use. I wanted to add a countdown timer to two pages, and this plugin works well. The color customizations are easy to implement. Though some of the color choosing fields appear to not select, I can look past that because I picked the colors I wanted from the color picker. Most of all, the design looks SLICK, and fits in with my theme perfectly. If I need to add multiple counters to a single page, I would be more than willing to purchase the upgrade.

Very Simple

This is one of the first plugins that requires little configuration and easy setup. I'm very happy with it.

They fail to tell you the very narrow requirements for this piece of junk to work on any HTML5 based theme. When I tried to get help to make it work as it is supposed to do they told be to get another theme!!!

Some Good, Some Bad
By , for WP 3.5.1

Pros: Appearance can be highly customized, including size and button colors.

Cons: Animation doesn't work as expected. The seconds digit slides down from the top, stop, then disappears, then the next digit slides down, stops, and disappears. I think it would be better if the digits would slide in from the top continue to slide out at the bottom, with each digit following in sequence. Maybe it's too hard to get the timing right for this.

When used as a widget, the counter and widget title aren't enclosed in a div, so it's hard to style them as a single unit. For example, I wanted to enclose them in a shadowed box, but couldn't using the counter as a widget. I was able to get around it by pasting the shortcode into a text widget, but that seems rather kludgey.

Lastly, I don't know if this has to do with the theme I'm using, but the seconds digits always seem to wrap to the next line, no matter how wide the container is.

Plugin doesn't work!!!

Very frustrating. This plugin simply does not work.

There are multiple posts in the support forum from people asking for help, but the developer hasn't bothered to reply.
