Installed fine and works well, Thanks! Very useful app for my Pebble. The title at the top just shows "countdown ti...". This needs changing to two lines so it fits on the screen. If anything, maybe the digits could be a bit bigger.

Okay I'll take care of the header. And maybe the font size too. Also, if you could upload some pictures, because i havent seen my own app :3

It looks like the title should fit, but strangely doesn't.

Seems like a bug in the SDK. I decreased the font size (was 18, now 14) should (fingers crossed) work. Now, it has an aggressive build, meaning the app will now become faster and reduce lags if there were any.

Definitely a bug. I'm still seeing "Countdown T..." Why does it do this? Can it be made to wrap to second line?

Other than this the app working good and fast

quick question. The timer works great by the way. Ok for my question; what is the watch face download? It doesn't seam to do anything. Am I missing something? Normally when I install different watch faces, I can switch to them. With this one, it isn't showing up in my list. What am I missing here, other then a brain!!!!

Well, I dont own a Pebble. As far as I can guess, You download the .pbw and Put it on your phone. Then, load it to your pebble using the Pebble App. It will probably ask you to browse to to the pbw file. You could ask@PDAJ for help. He got it running.
