Counters is one of the simplest Windows Phone 8 apps we've seen and if even if you don't have a need for it, you'll want to gaze over it's UX. It's designed to help you keep count of things such as days until you vacation, number of invites to a party, or anything else that can be counted or counted down.
Counters also takes advantage of our Live Tiles by letting you pin individual counters to your Start Screen for easy access. This really comes in handy if your counting down the days and need an easy reminder.
In a nutshell, Counters is a very clean, simple and straight forward Windows Phone 8 app to help you count.
When you first launch Counters the app's tutorial will launch. It's a five page illustration on all the features of the counters. When you're ready to start counting, just tap the "Back to App" screen on the tutorial.
The main pages of Counters include an Add Page where you can add a counter and pages for each active counter. For new counters you have three choices; counter, days until, and days since. The counter name and number can be modified by tapping on them respectively. To pin the counter or change the color, just tap and hold the screen and the pop-up menu will... well... pop up. If you use the Live Tile feature, you'll need to go into Counter's settings (on the three-dot menu) and turn on the periodic agent. This will help keep your Live Tiles updated on a daily basis and avoid the need to run the app periodically.
Should you need to delete a counter, just swipe down at the screen.
As you need to add to or subtract from the counter, you have "+" and "-" symbols at the bottom of the screen. If you are counting days, the counter will automatically adjust as days pass by.
Counters is an appealing Windows Phone 8 app for those needing to keep track of counts. Counters is a free app and you can find it here in the Windows Phone Store.
