Reviews
  • Pros: 

    Nice little gimmick

    Cons: 

    Installs as untrusted code that has full access to your machine

    Nice idea, so I bought the app.

    I just wish it would be a signed app - as it is now, it’s from an "Unidentified Developer", and I need to go through System Preferences to install it; makes me very uncomfortable to install untrusted code that has full access to everything I do on my machine.

    I don't mind 5$, but access to my machine is too high a price for the value.

    Pros: 

    Love the simplicity and that it's in the status bar!

    Cons: 

    Newer version does not show Day+Month+Year % at the same time. Older does. I like the very first version.

    Well worth $5. So I paid it!

    Newer version with the progress bar is nice, but older version with "Day: 65% Month: 73% Year: 31%" is way more pragmatic and useful for me.

Hi PH, Did you know it's 2018 and it's already 35% over? 💬 The Story I am a big fan of year_progress tweet but I want to see not only year I want to see month and day progress as well in minimal OS X menu bar with a cool progress bar. 🎁Features: - Show/hide progress bar - Change the time when your day starts and ends - Add your custom deadlines. Write a name with emoji and set a start date and end date - Launch on startup - Dark Mode Support - Change formats of displayed text 🎬 Here is a video demo
This app is a part of my Hard Core Year - I 😱 quit my job and I have 1 year to get to 📈 profit as Indie Maker. You can read my story here: 👉https://medium.com/@AndreyAzimov... UPD: Available in the AppStore: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/...

@andreyazimov Awesome idea! Love how you can switch between Day/Month/Year. One thing is I feel like after a while I'd get used to seeing it and stop focusing on it, so why not make it display a random emoji next to it everyday to keep it noticeable?

@andreyazimov @booligoosh emoji ftw I wonder how would they appear in the bar though. 🤔

@andreyazimov @ksaitor If it's a Mac, I don't see why they wouldn't just work as plain text!

@andreyazimov it's amazing to follow your progression. A year ago you couldn't code, now you've made Sheet2Site and a damn OSX app. Proud of you 🌶🌶🌶

@andreyazimov I love this idea! (from a girl's perspective) this emoji idea would definitely make me look at the %/bar more often 🙋🏽

@celiknimani Absolutely. A tool like this causes mental stress which is proven to have many adverse effects on your health.

@josef_moser Do you know you can turn it off anytime right? :D
@juliyg12 if you turn it off regularly, why do you buy it in the first place 🤔

What's the ram usage like? Also are there any studies or at least publicized anecdotal reports of increased productivity from having life expectancy information constantly available which would justify the $5 cost + continuous ram usage?

@codymclain It's not displaying life expectancy, but rather the progress of the current day/month/year
