Two things happened yesterday… First, I wrote a post about Dashcode, Apple’s widget making app. Second, I saw this post over at TUAW about a cool DIY cut and fold paper iPhone template. The guys who made the template also had a countdown (in the form of an iPhone) on their site.
I thought to myself… Dashcode has a built in template for countdowns, and an iPhone countdown would be better as a widget, rather than a webpage. So, I broke out Dashcode and whipped one up.
Now, we don’t have a firm ship date for the iPhone. Steve just said ‘June’, so my widget counts down to June 1st. I’ll update it to v2 when we get a firm release date.
Let me know what you think.
UPDATE (4.10.07): Rumor has it that the iPhone will be available on June 11th. I’ve updated the widget to countdown to that date.
