Countdown ScreenSaver and Desktop Countdown can be used to count down from a future date. They will display the years, months and days left to reach the Target Date entered by the user. Both programs have the ability to share some of the same basic settings so the text and date only need to be entered once. Updating the text and date is efficiently accomplished in either program with the same result displayed on the Desktop and in the ScreenSaver. All the font formatting and colours are independent of each other, therefore the user has complete control over the appearance of the display. Countdown ScreenSaver has many options to control movement on the screen, while Desktop Countdown can be stationary or scroll in many directions on the Desktop. Countdown ScreenSaver can use images from a supplied list or from any location on the user's computer. Desktop Countdown can display only text, not images.
Counting down to events such as... Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Christmas, Holidays, or Retirements are common choices, but the options are really limitless.
