Hello, Mi Fans!

MIUI Developer ROM 7.2.24 came little late this time but came so right with so many new features along with the bug fixes. Out of them two must be mentioned are countdown timer and anniversary reminder, both adds what has been always wanted to our calendar app making it more and more feature rich and helping you not to miss anything important. While countdown timer will help you counting something important passing each day then anniversary reminder will save you from the taunt "you forgot, again!" line; not only this but this time you will have answer to "which yearly anniversary is this?" rapidfire, and with timely reminder before 3 days you will have enough time purchasing the favourite gift.

We will check them out in action one by one, so if you haven't downloaded 7.2.24 yet then check your updater app today or download it here.

3. Clicking "Ok" will save it and you are done.

Anniversary Reminder
