Anyone Remember This ToDo Request? March 2, 2011 9:36 AM   Subscribe

Please help me avoid repeating a question! Anyone remember this task/todo request recently on the green? For a reverse countdown, a la "18 days since you went to the gym." Searching hasn't helped.

In the last month or two, someone asked for an app that would report how long it's been since a particular task was completed. I've just realized how useful that would be for one of my projects, but an hour's search last night yielded no (or rather, too many) results.

Seconding Time Flies. I looked into it and mourned my lack of a smartphone.

That's what I get for asking before searching. Thanks.

Time Flies are almost impossible to kill.

They're better than Schroedinger Flies. You never can tell when those things are dead...

Time flies like an arrow.

Fruit flies like a banana.

I downloaded it this morning - it seems like a cool little app, and for $.99, I'll give it a shot.

I think what speaks more truly to my psyche is that my iPhone is quickly becoming a graveyard for unused productivity and time management apps.

Is there an app that counts by the number of days only? So, instead of "7 years, 8 months and 3 days ago", it will say "2,795 (or however many it may be) days ago"?
