The Baal Shem Tov, or Besht —  the founder of Chasidism — 
met the soul of the Messiah during an ascent to heaven. 
The Besht asked him, "When will the Master come?" 
The Messiah answered, "When your wellsprings break forth to the outside!" 
(from a letter written by the Besht to his brother-in-law about one of his soul ascents)

David Cooper created an iPhone app in 2009 based on javascript I wrote for the omer widget in 2008, and implemented an idea I had: the Tree of the Sefirot appears, with a ring around the Sefirah of the week and a dot inside the Sefirah of the day. David also added the count formula and blessing in Hebrew, English and transliteration. The app will change count according to sunset in your actual location, keep track of which days you've counted, and give you notifications. There's also a quote for each day, accessible from all versions.
