1. Vacation Countdown
Children simply can’t contain their excitement when it comes to travelling and new experiences. We all know too well how annoying it can be when kids repeatedly ask ‘Are we there yet’ and ‘How many days left before we leave’. Vacation Countdown is an ideal app to answer all those types of questions, so you don’t have to! You can simply set the date of your vacation and the app will do the countdown for them, leaving you the parent with valuable time to get organised. The app will also allow you to add a photo, schedule countdown alerts and share the information with friends and family via social media.
