Get Your Countdown On With 'CountdownCenter', a Notification Center Widget
Do you have a really special event coming up? Maybe you’re tired of looking at the calendar and calculating the time left until that event in your head. If this is you, then check out a new free Notification Center widget available in Cydia now called CountdownCenter by iOS developer isklikas.
CountdownCenter is a Notification Center widget, so it can be effortlessly enabled or disabled at any time on demand by simply moving it in and out of Notification Center via the Notifications preferences pane in the Settings application. So after your special event passes, you’ll be able to put the widget away until the next time you have to look forward to a special event. It's great for Birthdays or other holidays.
To configure the CountdownCenter widget for a special event, just head over to the CountdownCenter preferences pane in the Settings application:
You’ll be asked to enter the day, month, year, and time in hours and minutes until the event that you want to count down to. If you don’t enter a time, the tweak will assume 00:00 by default.
After you’ve configured the widget, you can open Notification Center and you’ll see the widget start counting away in real time towards the event that you set.
The actual appearance of the widget seems kind of bland, but at least it gets the job done. Check it out!

This is great but hope there is a title to add in the countdown

Thank you for your review Anthony. I am aware that the appearance is kinda bland as you say and I plan to release version 1.2 along with a digital clock appearance (version 1.1 will have bug fixes, a visual improvement when the countdown is over and a new feature). Version 1.4 might even have a flip clock animation. Thank you once again.

Hmmm... installed on my ip5 iOS 6.1, and nothing is there. Maybe because of the other WeeApps I have installed?

Tried uploading a screenshot... Says "system message: you may not have permission to do this"
Tried a respring, and had to soft-reboot (thankfully) out of boot-loop, and still nothing. Also tried uninstalling and re-installing. Was really looking forward to counting down the days until my wedding. Thanks for the free tweak isklikas.

Is it me or did anyone else get it to work? I submit the Day and Month and everything but there is no done or submit or respring button or anything so it doesnt do anything after its filled out.

"appearance of the widget seems kind of bland"
Not just that but why so thick? Couldn't it be thinner, just a little over the width of the text?
I know being a bit nit picky here but hey, notification real-state is a premium. Sayin...

You should make it so you can select a event in your calendar and it counts down to that, and also show what it is counting down too :thumbsup:

Hi! I'm using an iphone 4, jailbroken with evasi0n with iOS 6.1, but I can't find the CountdownCentre in my notification preference tab at all? What could I be doing wrong?

Hello, thanks for this nice tweak but i don't know where i can put a date into countdowncenter.
I can switch on and off the appearance in the notification center but i can't find the settings screen for the date. In the settings menu i can't find countdowncenter.
I'm using iphone 5 with 6.12
