Somehow Christmas crept up on me this year. And in less than two months, Valentine's Day will do the same. Then birthdays, graduations ... makes a guy want to hire a personal assistant just to keep an eye on the calendar and have gift ideas on demand. Well, I can't afford a minion, but there is help for me ... and it's free at the App Store.
The new Garmin Countdown app tells me when (and how quickly) important dates and events are approaching. I can personalize it by adding birthdays, anniversaries, housewarming parties, anything where I should probably be present with a present. It’s quick. It’s easy. And it makes me look smarter than I am.
Garmin Countdown gives me reminders about specific details regarding that event, suggests gifts for any occasion, and lets me add notes of my own (like when I'm given subtle clues about what should go on a wish list... six months before the holiday arrives).
And in addition to sharing details about Garmin's new products and where I can buy them, Garmin Countdown also delivers news directly to me via Garmin's blog. Which reminds me, I need to add Victor's and Peg's birthdays to my Countdown.
