This New Year, put a dead bird in your pocket

December 22, 2014 in Health and Fitness (E)

[] San Francisco, California - Independent developer, Alaric Cole today announced that the popular Deadline will be free for the first time starting Christmas Eve. A top 10 paid Health app, Deadline 1.2 uses HealthKit to predict your date of death. The app was meant as a motivator to take life by the reins, and to improve health by seeing exactly how it can affect your lifespan. It looks at a number of factors to give you a statistically accurate prediction of your maximum age. Deadline uses statistical information to attempt to determine what could be your date of expiration, but of course no app can really accurately determine when you will die, so consider this a way to motivate yourself to be healthier (and consult a physician as necessary).

"You're going to die. We all will. But what if you knew how long you had left? Could it motivate you to be healthier?" asks Alaric Cole, developer of Deadline. "Deadline uses Health Kit data to give you an estimate of the date and time you will expire. You can often change the date by living a healthier lifestyle. Watch the ticker... Hint: You can usually change the date! Despite being an extremely popular app, with coverage on, Time Magazine, Business Insider, The Next Web, The Huffington Post, Gizmodo and more, there is disagreement with this use case of HealthKit."

Device Requirements:
* iPhone and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 8.1 or later
* Optimized for iPhone 5, 6/6 Plus
* 6.7 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Deadline 1.2 is currently $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Health & Fitness category. It will be offered for free beginning on December 24th, 2014. This is a great chance to get a top ten paid app for free. Give the gift of health for yourself, or for those you love. Bonus: Deadline will be available for the Apple Watch this spring!
