What is CalAdvent:
CalAdvent in a nutshell is a theme based Advent Calendar. However, it is not limited to be used for counting down to Christmas.
Countdown to Christmas or any other date you want with this app. By default the app is configured for your Advent Calendar needs, but the end date, number of days and themes can be changed to match your countdown needs. For up to 31 days before the target date, one ornament will be unlocked a day allowing it to be placed on the tree/display. You can admire or rearrange the ornaments at anytime. You can even shake the device to trigger a celebration that can change the countdown scene into a snow globe.
The application comes built in with a few themes (with more to come), but it also supports importing custom made theme packs that were created and exported from "CalAdvent Plus" (which is only available in the US).
The application comes with the following built-in themes:
- Grandma's (Theme Pack)
- 8-Bit Christmas (Theme Pack)
- Nativity Scene (Theme Pack)
- Easter (Theme Pack)
- Emoji (Theme Pack)
- Halloween (Theme Pack)
