MorbidMeter LIte is the free version of MorbidMeter. It has more limited timescales and update frequencies than the paid version. There is also no reverse time, no milestone notifications or millisecond indications in the Lite version. If you like the Lite version and want more, the paid version is only 99 cents.
MorbidMeter is a perverse little widget that puts your lifespan into perspective using various timescales that are easier (or sometimes harder) to grasp than an actual lifetime. The program takes your date of birth, your estimated life-span, today's date, and a unit of time (year, hour, minute, month, and others) and generates where (when?) you are right now in that time unit. For example, if you select year as your timescale, the month, day and time will indicate how far along you are in that year, assuming your life ends at midnight on December 31st. Use a life expectancy calculator such as this one (http://www.livingto100.com) to figure out how long you should live (or just make up the number). Per Wikipedia (as of 12/31/2011) the average US lifespan is 78.3 years overall: 75.6 years for men and 80.8 years for women (36th in rank of all countries, tied with Cuba).
Or just just MorbidMeter as a countdown widget. More fun than the typical countdown widget!
Time is running out -- MorbidMeter lets you know how quickly!
To setup MorbidMeter, do a long press on your screen, select Widgets, and select MorbidMeter. For Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), press the Apps button, switch to the Widgets tab, then long press on the MorbidMeter widget.
You can set the update frequency and timescales when MorbidMeter starts. Press the skull button to change your settings at any time.
Try out different timescales. You can reverse time and in some timescales can add milliseconds, which can increase with disturbing rapidity (full version only).
Select Show Notifications on the setup screen and get notifications when major MorbidMeter milestones are reached (e.g. an hour of MorbidMeter time passes using the Year timescale, full version only).
You can have multiple MorbidMeter widgets showing different timescales simultaneously.
MorbidMeter is a good way to remind you that nothing lasts forever. Not even you.
If you have any trouble with this update, uninstall MorbidMeter and reinstall it.
