Is this a request for an app that does countdowns, or a bug report for an app doing it the wrong way? :o

No request, but maybe a bug report...
Do you know this problem?

I haven't ever used the app, but if it is going the wrong way it is the maker of the app that made the bug, not whited00r.   So, there is no fix because you can't update the app and are stuck at that version :(

That does seem odd, maybe that's the way that the developers count down to stuff :o  can you give an example please?  are they stop watches instead of timers maybe?

How can I attach a snapshot with my device?
I tried it via my iPhone in this forum but I failed...

Do you want a timer, or an app that counts up?

You can't upload a screenshot using just your device either, you could email the picture to yourself though and download that on a PC then upload it.

I try to explain without screenshot...
The apps should count down! The one app should count the days from now to xmas, but instead of getting shorter, the time increases. The same with the timer built in App Box Pro.
I wanted to set tHe countdown to the day of birth of my next child, but the app counts up...
Well...maybe you are right and the bugs are in the apps.

Is the date on your iPhone set to the correct year?  Just a thought ;)  Go to Settings -> General -> Date and Time and double check it is :)

Date and time are correct.
See my example:
"There's ONLY -226 days, 10 hours and 0 minutes left until Christmas!"

Maybe those apps were for a specific year O.o  The negative numbers seem to indicate that  :O  so every day it counts up, so yesterday it was -225 days?
