If for some reason you really need to know when you’ll die, then the App Store’s got you covered, as Business Insider found a new $0.99 iPhone app that will guesstimate your death day for you. The Deadline app integrates with Apple’s iOS 8 Health app, to give you the answer to this rather morbid action, which means that in theory you could live longer if you better watch your health.

FROM EARLIER: Apple threatened to remove the best iOS 8 widgets in the App Store… and then changed its mind

“You’re going to die. Sorry, we all do eventually. I don’t want to, either,” the app’s description reads. “But, what if you knew the date of your death? Would it motivate you to be healthier?”

Deadline uses statistical information combined with Health Kit data as well as answers to a few “simple questions about your lifestyle, to give you an estimate of the date and time you will expire.”

The most interesting feature of the app is its widget that can be set up to show in your Notification Center. In it, the app will feature a countdown timer (to the second) of how much time you have left on this Earth, as seen in the left screenshot in the image above.

To install Deadline on your iOS 8 device, simply follow the source link below.
