How many days until..? Date Time Counter is a free software program for Microsoft Windows devices that keeps track of important (and even unimportant) events for you.
Basically, what the application does is list the years, days and seconds until events happen or have happened.
Here are some examples: use it to find out how many years, days and seconds have passed since your birth or the birth of your children. Display the time until your next birthday or marriage in seconds or days.
Date Time Counter is compatible with all recent versions of the Windows operating system.
The application is very flexible and does not limit you in regards to events. It displays events in a two-sided interface: one side displays future events, the other events of the past.
A click on the plus icon in the middle of the interface opens the "add event" dialog. Add a name, date & time and colors to the new event, and customize how it is displayed in the interface.
You may keep the default Years, Days, and Seconds format or configure a custom format that may include months, weeks, hours, and minutes.
Date Time Counter displays a preview of the widget so that you know right away how it will look like in the interface when added.
If you are just interested in days, check that option and uncheck any time-related option that is checked.
Click on the save & add button once you are done to add it to the events listing. It is played in the top or bottom panel depending on its type (future or past).
Some users may dislike the format in which time is displayed as some values are displayed with decimal separators, e.g. 6.58 months instead of just 6 months.
The options include settings to display time values with less precision; all that is needed for that is to set the precision to 0 for the time variable. The program rounds the number then, however, and that may result in less precise numbers. A month value of 6.6 is rounded to 7 for instance when you set the precision to 0. An option to disable the rounding of numbers is not provided.
A click on the menu icon of an event widget displays omitted time values and lists edit, duplicate and copy options.
Date Time Counter supports backup and import options. The program uses XML files to save and import information.
An option to create new event sets is provided as well; these are loaded in tabs in the interface.
Date Time Counter is a useful program for Windows to keep track of future events and remember past events. The program supports an unlimited number of events, and may display the time until an event or the time passed in years, months, days, hours, minutes, and seconds.
I'd like to see an option to display values without decimal points and without them being rounded. Another useful feature would be the addition of notifications, e.g. for each passing day, month or year.
