1.1.1 – 21 April 2015

+ Added proper support for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
+ Added a share option. Now you can quickly share a count. Need to text your tally to someone? Here you go. Perfect for sending your count into a custom Workflow
– Reworded the swipe direction setting so it’s easier to see what it does. Want to count by swiping horizontally instead of vertically? That’s what this option is for
– Made it clearer to see if Auto Dark Mode was enabled. If it is, you won’t be able to change the Dark Mode setting (Auto Dark Mode overrides the other)
– Modified the Auto Dark Mode slider to take input corresponding to all screen brightness options

1.1 – 21 December 2014

+ Auto Dark Mode – Our initial release included the ability to switch to Dark Mode, perfect for low light conditions. With this update, we’ve made it even easier to enable Dark Mode! How? With ‘Auto Dark Mode’, Countr will now automatically switch to and from Dark Mode depending on your screen brightness. Are you in a dark room? No doubt, your display will dim itself automatically. Countr can detect this and switch to Dark Mode, making it easier on your eyes and less noticeable to those around you.

– Replaced menu labels with Icons – We’ve also made some minor UI changes. Gone are the text labels on the main count screen. Those have been replaced with icons for a simpler count view.

And of course, we took the time to squish a few bugs.

1.0 – 29 August 2014

Our initial release brings Countr to the masses. If you ever needed to take a count, you now can in a very easy way.

Countr also lets you quickly increase or decrease the count with a swipe of your finger. Simple pan your finger along the screen to change the count; the faster you pan, the quicker it changes.

Want to quickly reset your count? Just shake your iPhone.

There is no gimmick with Countr. This isn’t an app trying to recreate a mechanical counter or ticker. This is a simple, clean app to help you take a quick count when you need to do so.
