In Twitter there is a quite peculiar account, it is @year_progress and its only function is to publish a progress bar that shows the percentage that has passed from each year. Progress Bar
And now, you can see it in the menu bar of your Mac.
Under this premise the developer Andrey Azimov created Progress Bar, an application that simply shows you how much of the day, month or year has passed. The progress bar is gradually filled in until it is 100% at the end of the day . The same goes for the month and the year.
Like any app focused on the menu bar, it does not have many options. We can choose to show the day, month or year and when we click on the app we’ll see all three options. As for the preferences, it allows us to modify the display to see only the progress bar, the percentage, the name and percentage, the shortened name or the lengthened name. My favourite option is the bar next to the percentage , as it resembles the battery of the devices. Finally, it also allows you to indicate at what time the day starts for you.
What use is this? It depends on each person, in my case I’ve been using the app for a few days and although at first I was stressed out by the way the day was running out , after a while it made me make better use of the time. Yes, a clock is good for that too. Yes, it won’t change your life to watch the progress of the day on the menu bar, but it’s fun.
Progress Bar is an application that can be purchased from the developer’s website for a total of five dollars. Utility, tool or simply fun app, each user decides how to use it, although it is not superfluous to give it a try .
