Review by The Dr. Mr. T. Vandersmizzle

Works well - This works well for keeping time. My only suggested change would be, when you go to edit your time, show the total time; not time of day. For example, if I forget to turn the timer on and realize that about 25 minutes later, it’s tricky to back out the start time from, say “11:17:41a.m.” If there were a box saying “total time: 00:31:15” I could just change the “31” to “56,” so it reads “total time: 00:56:15” and be good to go. Other than that, seems to work well. I haven’t had to export the time so not sure how that will be, but figure it exports to Excel so should be fine.

Good Idea - I love the idea of this app. Unfortunately I’m not very happy about in the daily business. I need to know how much I worked for every day. So at the end of the month I need to have an overview. This is only possible with an export. Also if I want to know from when to when I already have booked something, I need to navigate all the time back and force. Sometimes it would be a lot easier, if you could enter the time and project in one view and don’t have to navigate through all projects. Also a comment function for the actual work is missing. You can e.g. enter a project work “Software installation” but afterwards you have no possibility to enter a separete comment like, “on testserver”. Also to enter the time is not logical. If you press the tab you can enter the start time, but at the end it doesn’t go further to the end time, rather starting at the beginning of the start time again…You need to click with the mouse to the next time field. I like this app, but at the moment I won’t use it anymore. For me, it’s not worth the money. Perhaps I just have to many projects…

Review by TheVoiceofRhett

Caato Time Tracker - I’ve been looking for an app that can keep track of the time it takes to record sessions, edit them, etc., etc., and Caato Time Trakcer meets the needs of my team. While you can only track one project at a time with the free app, the upgrade allows multiple projects to be tracked across myriad platforms. Come on people, do you want “EVERYTHING” for free? The price asked, for what you can do for ∞ use afterward is money well spent. The few things that have kept me rating this app five stars are; the ability to move the tracked times in my own preferential order; the lack of the ability to make the app “stay on-top”; cutomization of colors. Other than this, if you need an app to help your business grow and properly bill customers for the exact time spent on their project, "Caato Time Tracker" take the cake!

Version 1.1.8
Review by RevPastorRoger

New User - So far so good. The app does what I wanted. It tracks specific projects. The key is to be disciplined enough to start and stop the project. It is not necessary to track every single keystroke made on a computer. Some tracking apps do that and I found them too detailed for what I needed. This is clean and easy to use with little or no learning curve. I purchased the pro version after trying the free app for a few minutes. I instantly knew this is what I needed. Thanks.

Version 1.1.8
Review by iggerot12

Does the job. Does it well. - I got this because I wanted to keep track of what I do with my time throughout the day. I also wanted to generate simple spreadsheets of any time period (i.e. graphing weeks, months, etc. in excel). This app does exatly what I need, and does it well. Very simple. I wanted something that would not take more time to figure out how to switch tasks than the tasks themselves. Thanks for the app, and if you want to track a lot of things, pay the fee. It’s worth it.

Version 1.1.8
Review by Light Interactive Media

User Since 2013! Love it! - While I did receive this Original Caato Time Tracking app for free while working for Apple, I have continually searched for a better time tracking app and not found anything better or more simple. I tried to use an online app, Time Tracking, but they "upgraded it" and made it really confusing. Caato Time Tracking app is very easy to use and set up for your projects. The ability to see each task area per project is really great. Editing is simple, tracking is simple, exporting a spreadsheet is simple. There are some things that I would want if I had to pay for this app, though and not sure I’d pay $25. Menu Bar access would be great. Ability to add iCal reminders would be nice, but might mess up the simplicity. A floating window and/or modern look and transparency would be neat. Otherwise, I love the app.
