Add a Countdown Widget on your Galaxy S9 Home Screen
When something important is about to happen, we tend to count down minutes, hours, days and months to that precise moment. Things are no different on your Galaxy S9, but here I have a way to forget all about the stress and anxiety of constantly checking your calendar to ensure you don’t miss important upcoming events.
There is a special app that you can install onto your Galaxy S9 so that when the event arrives there will be a pop-up notification, after which the event will disappear. The widget will display the number of days left to the event and display progress of ongoing countdown by drawing a colored circle. In case you started counting down in a middle of an event you can specify the number of days full circle stands for.
And I am sure that you will appreciate to discover how easy it is to get used to it and how colorful the displays would look like. As the name suggests, Countdown Widget is perfect, so try it out and see that by yourself:
