Countdown to Events in Your Calendar

Have you ever wanted to know how many days are there until the next long weekend, your anniversary, or that movie you’ve been dying to see?

Till is an app that can show you just that!

It allows you to:

  • see events already in your device’s calendars – no need to add events in multiple places
  • favorite events that are most important to you
  • favorite your top calendars
  • see all events at once, all events in your favorite calendars, or events in a specific calendar only
  • choose to see all instances of repeating events, or just the next one
  • select to show events for limited time period only
  • see a live countdown to events happening today
  • see the date and time of each event
  • search / filter events

Event List

The Event List gives you a quick view of the events that are located in the Calendar app on your device.

Each event’s name, starting date and time, and time remaining until the event begins are shown. If the event begins today, a live countdown is shown.

To preserve space, the name of the calendar in which an event is located is not shown. However, the colors of each event are taken from its calendar’s colors. The margin matches the color of the calendar exactly, and the background is turned into a pastel version of the color to increase readability.

In the Calendar app, give your calendars colors that are meaningful to you, and you will be able to quickly identify the calendar every event belongs to.

Favorite Events

You can mark any event as a favorite by double tapping on it. To un-favorite it, just double tap again.

Favorite events are marked with a Star icon on the margin of the event.

Lists and Calendars

The Lists and Calendars screen can be accessed by tapping on the Menu icon in the upper left corner of the Event List.

This section allows you to select what is shown in the Event List. You can choose from three lists:

  • All Events – see all events that Till imported from your Calendar app
  • Favorite Events – events you have marked as favorite by double tapping them
  • Events in Favorite Calendars – all events that are in calendars that you have marked as favorite.

You can also look at all events in any one calendar by tapping its name.

Favorite Calendars

To make a calendar a favorite, double tap on its name, and double tap again to un-favorite it. Like favorite events, favorite calendars are marked with a Star icon next to their name.


The gear icon, located in the upper left corner of the Lists and Calendars screen, allows you to enter the settings screen.

On the settings screen you can:

  • select how far into the future Till should look for events in the Calendar app
  • select how to display reoccurring events – you can choose to see only the next one, or all of them
  • select whether to show event’s starting date and time on the Event List – you can turn this off to see more events at once

From the settings screen you can also access the About section by tapping on the Heart icon in the upper right corner. The About section contains the link to the support e-mail, if you ever need help with Till.

Search and Count

At the top of the event list, there is a search box that allows you to filter events in that list to quickly find what you are looking for.

And the count above it, gives you a quick idea of how many events are in the event list, both unfiltered and filtered.

Scroll to Top

If you are looking at a particularly long list of events, and find yourself needing to scroll back to the top, simply tap on the name of the list or the calendar above the search box and Till will scroll the list for you.

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

What devices does Till run on?

Till requires iOS 6 or later. It will work on any iPhone or iPod Touch that uses the required version of iOS. Till will also work on an iPad with iOS 6 or later, however, the app is not specifically designed for the iPad screen.

These ads are distracting. Can I remove them?

Yes, you can now remove ads via an in-app purchase. This option is available on the Settings screen under Remove Ads.

I have already paid for ad removal – why do they show up?

If you’ve deleted and reinstalled Till, or if you are using this app on a new device, you need to tell Till to connect to the App Store before ads will disappear. You can do that on the Settings Screen under Restore Purchases.

Will there be an iPad version of Till?

At this time there are no plans to make a version of Till designed specifically for the iPad. However, that might change, if there is enough interest to support development of an iPad version.

Questions about Features

How do I make the icon show count down to my events?

It is not possible for icons to change in iOS (the Calendar app can do that because it’s written by Apple). Although it is possible to display numbers using icon badges, Till does not support this due to technical reasons.

Can I add events in Till?

No, events cannot be added directly to Till.

Till is meant as a companion app for the Calendar app that is already built into your device. You can add, remove, and edit events in the Calendar app.

Can I set alarms in Till?

No. The calendar app is a perfect place to do that.


How does Till use my personal calendar data?

Till reads your calendar data only to display it back to you. It does not transfer this data anywhere.

The current version of Till, does not modify your calendar data. In a future versions, if a feature is added that would modify your data, it would be optional and turned off by default.

You can always find the most up to date privacy policy in the app itself. In case of Till, it is located in the About screen that can be reached from the settings screen by tapping the Heart icon in the upper right corner.
