Tile Notes:

  • Tile only works between December 1st and December 25th. The first time it goes to update on the 26th, the tile will be removed.
  • Since the background worker only runs every 30 min, there may be a delay at midnight of up to 29 min before it updates to the correct day.
  • The countdown tile does not require the main tile to be pinned. It can be pinned anywhere on the home screen by itself.
  • Disabling the background task in the phones’ settings area will stop the tiles from updating and will show the same info as when it was disabled. Please do not disable the task.
