I'd like this too, but the mobile app has been neglected for quite some time now. :/
So much wasted potential in this app. This is just one of the many features that would make it great.
Alas, the poster a few above is correct. The mobile app, while officially beta, is long-neglected. We can't even get an official response in this forum about the state of the app, any future plans (or not) or any communication.
I realize they're doubling down on Storm Legion, but the complete lack of communication about the state of the mobile app is disappointingly unlike the usual Trion experience.
Seriously, an acknowledgement that "we know there are issues and will look into them after SL," or "it's beta and there are no future plans so suck it up," or even a "GFY noobs" would be acceptable. I'm wondering if maybe forum admins accidentally forgot to give the community people access to this forum?
While I think a conquest notification would be great for the mobile app, I think a conquest countdown would be absolutely horrible.
CQ is bad enough as it is with the match population tripling in size in the last 10 (now 5) minutes when the timer starts. Most of those people just pop in, sit afk for a few minutes, collect their 175-250k xp and favor / prestige / marks, and leave. They contribute nothing. I admit I've been guilty of it myself before - sometimes I'm just finishing up a dungeon or raid for the night and about to log off when I see someone announce in 50 chat "CQ timer started" or "3 mins left in CQ", etc, and popped in myself just for the quick and easy xp.
Adding the countdown to the mobile app would make it much easier for people just sit afk in Sanctum or Meridian all day while watching TV, playing console games, reading, doing housework, etc, and when the notification goes off, take 60 seconds of their time, pop in and collect their wholly undeserved rewards.

Unrelated note: it was nice to see a new version of the scratch-off game put in for the world-event. At least now we know the mobile app hasn't been totally abandoned.
I would agree as its just a delay in either a win or lost.
there is no need to contune once it hits.
