There are certain events where I would like to know, at a glance, how many days from the current date until the event. I don’t need to know anything more granular than the number of days for my purposes, but it’s fine if it has the hours and/hour minutes as well.
Think of events like an anniversary, a holiday, closing date for a home, a wedding day, an annual sale like the Steam Summer sale ( which I missed ) or Amazon Prime Day ( I also missed ), something that is important enough to you that you want the “day until event” value readily available.
I’ve found a few candidates , but not enough reviews or other feedback to distinguish any one of them as “the right one”
From the app store
- Countdown timer Plus
Just to clarify, here is an example
- You are getting married in 61 days.
- You set up countdown timer for getting married in the app
- In the macOS menu bar, you see the number “61”.
- Every day that number decrements by 1.
Subscription Apps. I don’t use apps that require a subscription.
I’m on the fence on the menu bar requirement. I found out that the Countdowns app has a “Today” widget which is just as good as a menu bar for my usage. The iOS app doesn’t an iOS widget which is a downer, though.
