Countdown to Ubuntu 11.04 in style with this slick countdown widget for Android.

We first brought you a preview of this widget some weeks back.

Whilst the widget is simple in purpose – i.e counts down the days remaining until the next Ubuntu release – it does it with visual aplomb thanks to striking graphics from Marti­n Casare.

Widget on Gingerbread


  • Two square widgets (1×1 and 2×2)
  • Light and dark themes
  • Ability to set a custom date
  • Low battery consumption


The widget is available to download from Android Marketplace for the princely sum of zilch (free). Just search ‘ubuntu countdown’ in the Market Place or snap the following square of QR-ness to go directly there.
