Two things happened yesterday… First, I wrote a post about Dashcode, Apple’s widget making app. Second, I saw this post over at TUAW about a cool DIY cut and fold paper iPhone template. The guys who made the template also had a countdown (in the form of an iPhone) on their site.
I thought to myself… Dashcode has a built in template for countdowns, and an iPhone countdown would be better as a widget, rather than a webpage. So, I broke out Dashcode and whipped one up.
Now, we don’t have a firm ship date for the iPhone. Steve just said ‘June’, so my widget counts down to June 1st. I’ll update it to v2 when we get a firm release date.
Let me know what you think.
UPDATE (4.10.07): Rumor has it that the iPhone will be available on June 11th. I’ve updated the widget to countdown to that date.
Download iPhone Countdown (requires OS X 10.4.3+)

Although there is already a similar widget posted online and dugg, have you thought about submitting this to the Mac OS X Downloads area, Version Tracker, or something like that to get a little bit more feedback on it?
Overall, very nicely done.
Thanks, glad you like it.
This was actually just a fun little exercise. I don’t think I’ll submit it anywhere else. I saw the one on digg, and I’ve seen two others on dashboardwidgets.com. I guess a few people had this idea ;)
Update to countdown to June 9, 2008 – WWDC 2008
