Retirement Countdown Clock App

I posted my first app to the Microsoft Store last weekend. It took me about 8 days to write, most of which was trying to learn about XAML and C#… (the resources on the internet aren’t as easy as trying to find out about Java in my opinion).

I got a little bit (too) excited today when I found out it’d been downloaded 6 times! hehe

The app I’ve created is a Retirement Countdown Clock.  When the user configures their retirement date, it will display the number of calendar days and estimated working days until that person retires.

I won’t tell you how many calendar days until I can retire (assuming I haven’t won the lottery before then) as it’s well over ten thousand! Here’s an example picture on a mobile device.

My thanks goes to the two people I demonstrated it to in it’s early form who suggested the working days feature.

    Hi, thanks for the app. Just one thing I would like is missing. I work a 4 days on/4 days off shift system. Obviously this works out at working exactly half the week, 3.5 days. Maybe you could include 1/2 days on the next update?
    Thanks

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for the comment. I re-raised it here https://github.com/vls29/retirement-countdown-clock/issues/2 to keep a track of it.

    In the next day or so you’ll hopefully get a store update 🙂

    Regards
    Victoria
