BBah… I really can't understand the difficulties claimed here!
Installation is even easier than the instructions claims (no need to logout/login!), I simply opened the app then the System Preferences/Keyboard/shortcuts/text/Count Text; put a shortcut and use it! (OS X 10.9.2)
I need it anytime I'm preparing a text with limited character on some sites if there is not a counter in the box, it's easy, fast, not intrusive and, even if I would like to be helpful giving more suggestions to the developer, I still couldn't think out something I'm missing!

I downloaded this app and couldn't get it to work in 10.6.3.
Clicking on the icons did nothing, transferred it to applications and tried to open, nothing.
Opened word for Mac and typed - where is it? Dropped in trash

A very good idea, but should have been built as a contextual menu plugin and not as an application.
