Cosmos - the short-term, long-term and everything in between timer
Birthdays belong on calendars. But what about events with more flexible due dates? Things like watering the plants, cleaning the bathroom or replacing the water filter every six months. And what about things you're looking forward to? How many days exactly is it until your cell phone contract expires or your homebrew is ready for quaffing with friends? Cosmos Timer is an iPhone app that can track these kinds of events. It can handle events that are only a few minutes (boiling the perfect egg) or several years (your next tetanus booster shot) - and it shows a nice countdown which you can share with friends.

Brilliant idea, I struggle with this kind of thing all the time. Now if only you would think about developing one for the Android...

I really like this idea and bought the app. Very cool. My feedback so far is that it would be nice if I could enter the date and time information when I create the timer, rather than having to go back into the timer and edit it to do that. Nice job!

Thanks for the feedback! I didn't want to make the 'new timer' screen too complicated, but I'll look into sneaking in a few more advanced options. Sometimes the exact date is important - and having to edit the running timer is a bit of a kludge.
