Date Difference just gives the difference between two dates and/or times, and it tells you the length of time between them. There are preferences for what units to enable or disable (days, hours, minutes, and/or seconds), and it compensates for the disabled units with the next largest enabled unit (for example, if the difference between the dates is 1 day and 2 hours, but you disable days, then it becomes 26 hours).

What's New

Version 1.1:
  • Fixed problems with compatibility in OS X 10.4 (i.e., not launching)
  • Fixed problems with time intervals being too long for the computer to keep track of (dates before sometime around 1940 returned a negative result)
  • Added option to use zeroes or not (meaning if there are 0 days in between the two dates, by default Date Difference no longer displays them) This can be changed in the more...


Mac OS X 10.4 or later

Yes, you're right so far. But when I import e.g. 20 07 1941 and 23 7 2008 the app. tells me "the date are the same".

This little app rocks!!!!

after trying it out, i was that enthusiastic about it!
so i returned to write a word of thankfulness to the author of this little gem of software.

just as a hint to other users:

the entry field even accepts dates in the format like:

01aug08 and calculates correctly!!!!!!

thanx, Zib! and, maybe, you'll solve the month(s)/year(s) output format too, though i'm very happy with DD just as it is.

This new version solved my problem in OS X 10.4.11.
One remark: why is the input limited to US date format? It's not that easy in other continents (e.g. European).

I'm really looking for a tool like that, but I need the option to see years, months in the result as well.
Would be great!
