There are now 7 ways to share your countdowns! A detailed description of each method can be found below.
Post to Facebook
You must download the Facebook app to use this option & customize your post. Options include:
Previewing your post
Add a custom message
Choose a location
When finished tap ‘Post’ to add this to your timeline.
Note: If the Facebook app is not installed on your device you will be unable to preview your post, add a message, tag friends or choose a location. Once you tap Share a post similar to this one will appear in your activity log. It will also appear in the news feed for your friends to view but it won’t show up on your timeline.
Sharing countdowns using this method uses the built-in iOS Facebook support to post photos. If you’re not already logged in, you’ll need to enter your username and password under iOS Settings > Facebook. With this option you can:
Customize the message
Choose an Album
Choose Set a Location
Adjust the Audience
Tweet & Tweet Screenshot
Sharing countdowns by Twitter uses the built-in iOS Twitter support. If you’re not already logged in, you’ll need to enter your username and password under iOS Settings > Twitter.
If ‘Tweet Screenshot’ was selected, a screenshot will be attached to your tweet.
Sharing countdowns by e-mail will attach a screenshot to a new e-mail. You’ll have the ability to adjust the message and add recipients as you would with any e-mail.
Text & Text Screenshot
Sharing countdowns by text message will create a new text message containing the time since (or time until) your event. If you choose Text Screenshot, your message will also contain your photo. All you’ll have to do is enter a To: recipient and tap Send!
