Finally! - Love the overall form and function of this app. For a self employed engineer who is always on the go while working on multiple projects at one time this app is fantastic. I have tried several other time keeping apps with success and failure, but this app is the first (for me anyways) that has truely been ubiquitous. The desktop and mobile platforms seem to work flawlessly. Though I do not use the invocing functionality directly for invoicing, as long as you set things up it puts all of your data in a neat and professional form that can be attached to any invoice to break out your labor line item. Pros: -Flexibilty -Ease of use Cons: -I would like the ability to record time on several tasks at the same time, as I am often working on several automated tasks simultaneously and I need to bill for that time individually. I have litterly had up to 12 automated processes going at one time that require me billing for those times individually, but with this software I can only do one at a time. -I need to be able to access the individually timed task instances and make adjustments if I need, in the moment so to say, and not at the end when I run the report or invoice. By this I am asking for the adjustability in time keeping that is found in apps like “Hours Keeper”. Thanks for your work on this app, and I hope you continue to make improvements. Specifically ones that I have mentioned. LOL
Completely useless. - There is no way to add time to a task manually, only the start and stop button. If you don’t have this at your fingertips at all times it’s useless. sync with other devices is good, but if I can’t manually put time on a task, I can’t use it.

Good Price Point and Easy Time Tracking! - My old freebie time tracking app was great, till it was unsupported and stopped working mid project. Summary: Pay a little to on this app and track time by client and activity, be organized and bill clients for real time. Return for real time tracking of my work makes this product a great deal. Not perfect, but what is? 1. Open, select client and task 2. Turn it on and work. 3. It runs and tracks time, date, task and client. (If you forget to turn it off it won’t go on for more than 10 minutes. 4. Gathers the time data and let’s me access it easily at billing time. 5. Does customer billing, but I haven’t tried that feature yet. Get it, see if you like it.
Perfect, Simple, Universal - This app is perfect for what I need. It allows me to create client file folders with project folders inside and to do lists for each project as well. I can track the amount of time spent on each to do as well as each project in two clicks. It also multiplies that time per project by my billable rate and generates reports on my productivity based on each to do/project/client and generates client invoices based on that information as well. It syncs perfectly across devices and is just as simple and straightforward on every device. The only thing I wish they would add is a column for dates in the CSV file so that my clients can see what days I performed each task.
The best time tracker I have found - This is replacing my current time tracker in my list of must use software. It is simple, intuitive and does what it says it does. I have not used all of the features yet, but for time tracking it is great. I am having a bit of trouble with reports because if a task is selected TT&E only reports for that task. I haven’t been able to figure out how to de-select everything so I get a complete report. Support desk here I come. Bill808
great app, two complaints - Great app that does what it purports to do with plenty of customizable functionality and cross-device synching. I plan to continue using it and hope the following will be addressed in an update: 1) On the mobile version, it’s not possible to edit an entry. So if I need to change the start or end time of a work session, I have to do that on the PC version. 2) Would love for this to synch with Be Focused Pro and Focus Matrix, so that I could track the same tasks across all three apps.
This is a pretty good timer, but could use more features - I use this to keep track of work on my personal projects I am not actually getting paid hourly for. I use Harvest and Upwork’s hourly trackers, so I have those to compare with. My biggest wants for this product are better at-a-glance information from Chrono’s home on the status menu and an easier ability to toggle tracking on and off without clicking into the status menu. It would be great if Chrono had an option to change the color of the clock and current tracked time in the toolbar. For example, the harvest goes from grey to Orange, and Upwork’s goes from grey to Green. Chrono is always grey, but does show time. The result of this for me is I’m more likely to forget it is tracking time and have it track unwanted stuff. The time shown when tracking is always the accumulative for a given project item. It would be nice to have the option or even the default be that it show the amount of time _that day_ tracked of a particular task. When you get up in to the teens of hours, it isn’t as obvious if you’ve been tracking accurately or not for the day. Wheras, at a glance if you only have 30 mins, and you know you’ve done 2 hours of work, probably you did not turn it on or off properly so far. A global hot key to turn on and off tracking on the last selected project would be really good. For example, command - control - ] or something set by the user would be really good. It could use a MacOS notification when time tracking has been successfully started or stopped so it is obvious. That said, just changing the color and showing only the day’s time would also help here. Another feature that helps keep me on task in other trackers is an optional 15 minute or other notification reminder that I’m tracking time. The upwork timer, for example, lets you specify the task you’re working on. Their notificaiton says, are you still doing this? And you can edit or say yes, or it will just go away after a short time if you ignore it. These status items are saved and available in the report generated from the time tracked. This may be too naggy or micro-detail for some folks’ invoices, but I don’t use invoices for this product at all. And if you’re using the timer to not only keep track of how long you work but to stay on task while working this can help! All that said, the product works reliably and seems to be the best that I’ve seen out there. Thanks to whoever is maintaining it, and here is some positive energy for you to keep investing in making it better. Go get ‘em!
