I don’t get why you’d reference ‘OS X’ in the title when that name was retired years ago. I assumed this was an app that had been around for a while yet the domain was registered just yesterday.

Also, I don’t know about anyone else but I find ‘Progress Bar’ as an app name to be really vague. I wouldn’t know it was a year progress widget without visiting the site.

P.s. you’re welcome to my genius naming idea ‘Year Progress macOS’.




OS X was rebranded in June 2016, less than 2 years ago. The old name is still used pretty often colloquially. In error, sure, but it's not like using Phoenix instead of Firefox. You're right about the name, and yours is a good replacement. It would likely be better received if you suggested it with less snark.

Was it? I am a Mac user and hadn’t heard that
