RIP Event Timer Widget, Hello Countdown Widget!

The headline says it all: neither Event Timer Widget FULL nor LITE will receive any updates in the future. Instead, I have rewritten the Event Timer Widget and call it Countdown Widget now.

The good news: there are a couple of new features in Countdown Widget! In addition to the great functionality you've been used to with the Event Timer Widget, it's now possible to use beautiful colors for the Widget-background, to show the date & time in your preferred format and you can even send a notification when an event is due.

The not so good news: Countdown Widget won't be available for download on this page anymore. You can find it in Google's Play Store now. Countdown Widget Lite will be available for free, Countdown Widget will cost 0.89 €.

The difference between LITE and the regular Countdown Widget? Here's a fancy table:
