Version 1.0.0
Review by Seriouslysean

Perfect Time Management Tool! - This is exactly what I was looking for in a time management tool. It's small, has all of the features I need (make tasks, track time by day) and has a super small footprint. It's absolutely perfect. I'd really love for a smaller finder bar icon though; I'm kind of a space nut. All in all, TicToc is a perfect application that does it's job -- it's well worth the money.

Version 2.2
Review by Purelightmojo

CSV Export Not Compatible with Excel Time Functions - Though this is a great menu bar task timer, the CSV export puts duration in values that Excel cannot work with (e.g. 2h 22m) rather than ones it can work with (e.g. 02:22:00) and this ultimately undermines its value if hours need to be tracked and exported for business purposes. Though the developers said they would consider this update for a future release, it's been four months and no update. Also, this does not allow you to track tasks within a project (unless you use the Comment field). I have downloaded a number of simple task timers and, even though I like Tic Toc's UI the most, at least Chronos 1) Exports CSVs that can immediately be used by Excel functions and 2) Allows you to create a Project, Task, and have a Comments field. It's not a menu bar app (I wish it was), but by offering these minor features, it's far more useful.

Version 2.2
Review by phatmann

Does exacty what it is supposed to do and does it well - This app does one thing and does it very well: tracks the time you spend on tasks and exports the results. It has a very attractive, well-thought out UI, and the idle timer is invaluable for making sure the timing is accurate. One feature request: a keyboard shortcut to start and stop the timer.

Version 2.2
Review by timothy green

Simple, yes. Maybe too simple. - This app is easy to use, as advertised, but is extremely limited in its usefulness. The ability to have a job heading with tasks within that folder would be exceedingly helpful. I hope my little donation for this app will be used to make it better. I'll need to find something else in the meantime.

Version 2.2
Review by drewcarver

Very Handy, Needs Yosemite Dark Mode Support - I use this app every day and I love it’s simplicity. I’ve looked thoroughly for an app that let’s me easily keep time on different jobs and tasks without having to switch to cmd-tab to another application. This one fits the bill perfectly. Exporting data is very convenient. It does need support for Yosemite’s dark mode. The icon basically disappears if you enable that interface mode in OS X. The other thing that would be nice is the ability to set when the week starts. Every Monday my total time resets, which is not when I need it to.

Version 2.2
Review by Larry.McJ

It’s the best of the timers…not sure why some of the poor ratings. - I tried all of the top five apps in this category but none of them come close to Tictoc. I use the app to time sessions when I’m providing end-user customer support for a software app to keep track of my actual hours worked. It’s so easy to use, stays out of the way unless needed, easily displays when it’s running in the Menu Bar so you don’t forget it, but if you do, you can set reminders that you’ve been idle and it will let you know. Also, the sessions are easily modified in case you forget to turn it on, etc. Also, contrary to some apps, everything in the interface is large enough font that you can easily see it. Great app!

Version 2.2
Review by Harryzun

Perfect - Tictoc does what it needs to do, does it well, and nothing more. I’ve never experienced any bugs and I’m on OS X Mavericks. The biggest feature of this app is it’s simplicity, if you want something more complicated, there are plenty of alternatives out there. All I need it to do is track the time I spend on different projects, and for me, it’s a perfect fit.
