“ChronoMate is a great product. I have been using another product for a few years, but would not recommend (or even mention) the other product. There was no support there.” Tom S.

“Love this timer. Great for tracking time when working with multiple clients and projects. Developer keeps adding great features and is very responsive.” Charise.

“ChronoMate made my day today when I learned I could add a project directly from the app. Bye bye timepost. I hated you from day one.” Jim T.

“I love it! I particularly like that it recognizes when I am idle and asks to adjust my time accordingly. This is so helpful when I am multi-tasking and forget to hit pause.” Sara.

Super Kill App for Freshbooks - I have been using Chronomate since January 2011. This is killer app, top support and top product. Developer is highly dynamic and will address bugs or feature requests immediately. For example, I requested a fractional unit for measuring time (e.g., 0.6, 1.7) and the developer banged it in there almost immediately. This app alone will make you want to switch to Mac because it beats any of the other desktop timers. Highly recommended!

Version 0.9.5
Review by Charles L Wells Jr

Must Be A Freshbooks Evergreen Subcriber - I think this APP should clearly tell you that if you do not want to pay $29.95/month for Freshbooks it is worthless. For $20 for the cost of the App I definitely should not have to have a Freshbooks Premium account. I WISH I COULD GET MY MONEY BACK!

Version 1.11
Review by Angled End

Wouldn’t want to work without it... - Looks like there’s no need for me to add my review/rating for this already popular app, but I’ve been using it for years and really appreciate its level of polish, comprehensive tool and options and the level of support and updates that the author lends to the software. Looks great on Retina monitors, too. I’m hard-pressed to find a flaw in ChronoMate.

Version 1.11
Review by rrobbotto

Big Help! - I used to use the old Freshbooks dashboard widget to track time but it was getting pretty old and wasn’t a great experience. I’m so glad I found Chronomate, because it is just what I wanted. It’s really easy to access all clients and projects, create multiple timers when switching between projects and a lot more. The latest version is a nice update to bring its visual style up to date which is great, but I was plenty happy with the excellent functionality no matter what it looks like. If you use Freshbooks and prefer to track time with your computer while you work I highly recommend it.
