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

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.

How much resources does it use?

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)
