AppAdvice has teamed up with Yao Liu in order to offer you a chance to win a copy of Dreamdays ($1.99) for iPhone and iPod touch. For assistance in remembering the many events in our hectic lives, including those involving others, we turn to task management apps. These helpful tools allow us to be reminded of appointments, sports events, parties, meetings, and so on. However, some occasions are extra special and deserve greater attention, and that's when Dreamdays comes in. Not really a task management app or even a to-do handler, Dreamdays is strictly a special event reminder. You may choose countdowns to final exams, anniversaries, graduation, children's birthdays or something a bit frivolous like summer break, the day your driver's license arrives, the big Hawaii vacation, and so on. However, there's a reversed potential as well. In addition to a countdown towards upcoming events, the app tracks time after events occurred, such as the first time you met that extraordinary someone or the last time you had a smoke. Seeing the duration of milestones and other occasions can be an extra comfort. So, how is this taken care of? Every occasion you enter features a category icon, a "days until" or "days since" count clearly displayed alongside the event title, except for one. Easily swapped, a single event becomes showcased at the top with a stylish count display plus a cover image cropped from the background photo. Tapping on any event in the list shows a similar elegant design but in fullscreen. As a further means of highlighting and convenience, the app provides default photos, as well as the ability to import and capture your own, filter and sort the list, repeat events, share via Twitter or Facebook, and add audio messages. To have a chance at randomly winning one of two Dreamdays promo codes, leave a relevant comment below before July 1 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. If you want to increase your odds of winning, just hit that tweet button near the bottom of this page or retweet this post from your favorite Twitter app before tomorrow night at 11:59 p.m. PDT to have a chance at one of three other Dreamdays promo codes. We will then search the Twitterverse for all of the retweets and randomly choose our lucky winners.

Only one entry per person per method is allowed, totaling up to two entries per person when using both. Please be sure to also check your junk email boxes so that you won't miss out if you win.
