very useful, very bare bones - This app doesn't have many bells and whistles. The GUI isn't particularly attractive - I actually think it reminds me of the Mac II - and there are no fancy graphics or colors. I can't drag and drop things into tasks and projects and groups and so on, or assign little virtual sticky labels. This is fun, but it's secondary to the purpose: to track time. This app is reliable, useful, and flexible. You can put whatever you want into the little text box, with Twitter-style hashtags used to group the tasks and projects. Here is exactly how I use it for, for example, a freelance customer support gig: - I pop open my window and type in @ProjectX and start the timer. - as I work, I record everything I have done in the little box, and update my status - I stop the timer when I start working - at the end of the month, I export everything as a CSV file, and tidy it up - Then I cut and paste directly into my invoice template - Then I go back into TimeKeeper, select all the tasks I just exported, and mark them invoiced with the click of a button. It's very simple, but more importantly it's very reliable. It doesn't lose data, it doesn't malfunction, it has never crashed and I've been using it for I don't even know how long. This is the most critical thing for me - I don't care what it looks like as long as it works with no bugs or glitches. If the workflow above is the kind of thing you do, this program will work really well for you. As someone who balances up to five different jobs at a time, I find it invaluable. It doesn't have any bells and whistles, but it's solid as a rock.

fantastic app, great support - This app does everything I want and nothing that gets in the way. I can do all of the expected start/stop/edit of a task during or after tracking, get a nice report with start and stop times and duration, and filter the report by search phrases or tags. It has great hot-key support so you don't have to keep going to your mouse to use it. I had one complaint about it, that it would minimize the primary window when you use the hot-key to start tracking. I emailed the author of the app, and he responded within an hour with instructions for how to make it behave the way I wanted by running this in Terminal: `defaults write com.timekeeperapp dontHideMainWindowOnStartTracking -bool true` I can't review this app or the developer highly enough. Absolutely recommended.
