The Deadline app describes,

“Deadline uses statistical information to attempt to determine your date of expiration, but 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,”

The application is available for only 99 cents in the iTunes and it requires iOS 8 to run in your iPhone. The so-called application uses the new health platform of Apple and it grabs user data, such as blood pressure, weight, height, birthday and other information of users with their permission. By using the vital information, the application adjusts the date of death.

The main advantage of this application is that, it will ask for several additional information such as how often the users used to some, drink and drives in the car. Based upon the results, the application will automatically calculate the exact date of death.

The application got several comments in the iTunes as,

“This app is fun and a reminder that the choices you make now while you’re young will greatly effect [sic] you when you’re older,” and another person commented as, “”I’m 74 and I do not want to hear I will live to 77!”,”I am not perfectly fine with that.”

It is sure that, the application will provide ultimate fun as well as a thrill to the users who were using it.
