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:

Nice little gimmick

Cons:

Installs as untrusted code that has full access to your machine

Good point. I just bought Apple Developer licence, so there is no such error anymore.

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.

@juliyg12 if you turn it off regularly, why do you buy it in the first place 🤔

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.

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.

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

I've tried to think of that gadget in a positive way... but i couln't find a way that is not depressing. :s

Same can be enabled using bitbar plugin that i use. Pasting gist @ https://gist.github.com/wnds/64a...

Pros:

Well gives a way to track remaining time on earth

Cons:

Pay $5 to get a countdown clock when it can be done for free

@vivek - helping people discover resources is helpful. Saying a free option is available doesn't help makers. At the $5 price point, for somebody's first OS app, it's a lot about encouraging them to continue.

It's a minimal useful app which can give you the motivation you need by showing the cold-blooded fact: how much time has already passed. It might feel stressful at first, but it actually depends on the way you look at it. I got used to it and now it doesn't stress me at all =]

Pros:

minimal, only facts, looks cool

Cons:

expensive, no automatic updates (yet)
