From Fall App Updates:

I’ve now added sync back. Your existing counters will sync automatically. If you’re on the free version as soon as you upgrade everything will sync seamlessly.

Everything should work as before since I’ve tried to keep the behaviour as close to the original version as possible. You can find more information about it on the sync announcement post.

  • FIX: Fixed a crash on the full version


  • FIX: Fixed a bug while creating a new counter under certain circumstances

  • PROMO OVER: The promotion “Try the full version for free” is now over and your app has been converted back to the free version. Hope you enjoyed the free trial. [This was a one time promotion for the 2.0 launch for the early adopters and is not scheduled to come back]

  • FIX: Fixed multiple UI issue on smaller screens
  • FIX: Improved VoiceOver support

  • FIX: Fixed a crash for free user occurring during a background fetch.
  • FIX: Added “Internet connection not available” in Settings screen if offline.

  • NEW: All new archive feature! You can now archive your Counters if you finished with them, but you don’t want to delete them (maybe to keep them as memories or proud moments: “Hey look, I managed to do this!”).
  • NEW: All new statistics! Find out how many goals you have completed and more from “Settings” -> “Account” -> “Statistics”.
  • NEW: Added spotlight search! Get brought directly in your full screen counter!
  • NEW: New delicious confettis will drop from all over your screen instead of fireworks. You can always switch back to fireworks from “Settings” -> “Advanced”.
  • NEW: Icon Badge for the top counter (Off by default, you can turn it on from “Settings” -> “Advanced”)


During these past few months I’ve been deep at work making the new version of Minimal Counter. You’ll find that it has so many new features that it feels like a 2.0 without actually being one! I thought multiple times if I should call this 2.0 cause it really feels to me like a 2.0 release, but at a mere 5 months after the release it seems a bit premature. That said the version number is not that relevant, unless you go for paid upgrades which I wasn’t going to for this version anyway.

Notice: Most of the new features require the Full Version. The update is free for paying customers and the old “Unlock More Themes” has been renamed “Full Version”. The in-app purchase “Remove Ads” has been rolled into the “Full Version” and has been removed from sale. (I removed it from sale months ago actually when I first thought about doing this.) If you bought “Remove Ads” you will be happy to know that I haven’t increased the price of the “Full Version” so you won’t spend a cent more than you would have done before. If you’re not a paying customer everything will still work as before, but you’ll miss out on most of the new features.

  • The App has been completely revamped! Read the rest to find out how.

New Features!

Of course you can also use the app without logging in, although you will lose access to most of the new features in this version. Mind that the app is fully usable offline once you log in. [You can also sign up and link your account to Facebook or Twitter later if you so desire. As before you’ll find more infos on this below.]
  • NEW: Added a section in “Settings” to manage your account and your data. Remember: All your data is and remains YOURS.
  • NEW: All new loading screen.
  • NEW: Added 10+ new themes!!!
  • NEW: Improved In-App purchase, now everything will be unlocked with only one in app-purchase! The price hasn’t been increased to match the old price so consider it as a discount for everyone! [And nope it’s not a launch price, it’ll stay like this for the reasonable future.] You’re Welcome.

  • NOTICE: Your data is and will remain yours. You can delete your account and all your data from “Settings” -> “Account” -> “Delete Account” while logged in. Please mind that doing so will result in everything being deleted forever with no way of getting it back. You can also just delete you data and start anew without deleting your account from “Settings” -> “Account” -> “Delete All Data”. Deleting your Data or your Account will delete it across all of your devices.
