Everything about the date

  • Convert date and week
  • About a date
  • Days between dates
  • Date calculator
  • Events
  • Calculating the Fridays until summer
The Converting a Date and Week feature finds the week number of a date or vice versa. The About a Date feature lists the day of the week, the day of the year, the leap year, and the sign of the zodiac. The Days between Dates and Date Calculator features calculate the number of days, weeks, months and years between any two dates.

Knowing exactly how long it is ’till Bastille Day

With the Events Feature, figure out how many days it is until Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, New Year, Valentine's Day, April Fools' Day, International Workers' Day, Mother's Day, Bloomsday, Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, Independence Day, Bastille Day, Swiss National Day, Assumption of Mary, German Unity Day, Nationalfeiertag, Halloween, All Saints Day, Shrove Monday, Daylight Savings, Palm Sunday, Easter Sunday, Ascension of Jesus, and the Pentecost.
TKWeek is rated at 4.3 stars in Google Play. It is rated at 3.2 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

TKWeek has a number of one-star ratings, a number of which were the "spoof" one-star rating type, meaning they are from users who rate at one-star every day just to be funny. Why they have not been banned, as they do this every day, is beyond us.

That said, if the app sounds useful to you, try it, as the Amazon Appstore ratings are skewed, and the Google Play ratings are quite high.
