Countdown 1.3 introduces support for Dynamic Type, and improves VoiceOver and Switch Control support. VoiceOver and Switch Control users will be greeted with an all new user experience, designed to fit their needs.

Custom Accessibility UI

Countdown now displays content in a List for VoiceOver and Switch Control users. This design was created so VoiceOver and Switch Control users will feel right at home.


The new Accessibility interface

This interface is available for all users, and can be enabled in Countdown's settings.

Dynamic Type Support

Countdown 1.3 fully supports Dynamic Type, so users with a prefered text size or users with partial visual impairment can use Countdown.
