The plugin didn't work. On the downside it was also based on an iframe, which is not what I would have preferred.

Final Countdown is also an app on both iOS and Android.

Perfect for sporting or TV events. On my wishlist: German or French lettering for the frontend. Keep up the good work!

I love this new countdown. I'm not technical at all but was able to setup this countdown within minutes on my website - The cool thing is that I liked about this countdown is people who visit our site can view and countdown and also download their app Final Countdown to have the countdown on their phone where they can share on social media. This was a unique feature. It would be cool to have a feature to make the background transparent too. Thanks, Renee
