Timelime is the easiest and most beautiful way to track and visualize your working hours.

Timelime is the perfect assistant for:
◦ Freelancers and independent contractors who have to track their time spent on projects
◦ Students who want to spend more time studying by monitoring their daily/weekly/monthly workload
◦ Individuals who are interested in how they spend their work time
◦ People who wish to reduce the amount of time not being productive
◦ Anyone else who likes simple yet powerful time tracking and visualization

Timelime’s key highlights are:

SYNCHRONIZATION - Keep your data in sync using the optional synchronization setting. When enabled your data syncs automatically and immediately on all your Macs via iCloud or Dropbox.

UNOBTRUSIVE INTERFACE - When timing, Timelime hides away in the menu bar. Even the menu bar icon is customizable to make it as unobtrusive as you like. Start and stop the timer from the menu bar or by a hotkey.

TASK GROUPING - Organize your tasks by groups using simple drag and drop. Timelime supports up to two levels of subtasks.

CALENDAR VIEW - View your daily work activity in a unique continuous calendar, which also allows you to select date ranges for review.

BEAUTIFUL CHARTS - Whether you want to display your workload in a bar, line, or pie chart, Timelime enables you to generate customizable and beautiful charts.

CONSISTENCY ACROSS TIME ZONES - Are you working in different time zones? Timelime automatically takes care of time shifts; your timings and reports will always be time zone independent.

INTELLIGENT IMPORT - Never worry about duplicate tasks or timings when importing any Timelime data.

EXPORTING - Timelime offers selective export of both your data to CSV or XML, and your charts to PDF, PNG, or JPG for easy import into your reports.

INTUITIVE INTERFACE - Timelime makes time tracking intuitive with its clean and simple interface. Start time tracking right away. It just works!

Version 1.3.4
Review by lutang

A Life Saver and Business Saver! - I do NOT know the developer and I am NOT paid to write this. I say that upfront, because I am going to give this the best review ever, and I don't want anyone to think it's insincere. I was struggling to keep track of where my time went in the work days, and understand how much time each job/task actually took. I THOUGHT I was working way more hours than I actually was (Facebook is a horrible invention). With Timeline, I am able to track every single thing I do for clients and for self-promotion of my own business, and I'm able to gauge past and current time allocations towards future quotes to help my proposals and price estimations be even closer to realistic time spent on each task/project. I was seriously struggling in my business, and I didn't know why. Once I started using Timeline, I realized where my hours were going…and where they weren't. Understanding how exactly I was and wasn't spending my time helped me hone in my business, my daily hours, and understand which clients weren't getting the attention they deserved, even if I thought I was giving that time. Now, with Timeline, I can make sure I'm spending an accurate amount of time on each project and task, and make sure I'm within the estimated hours, and billing properly for the time worked. The developer made some great improvements with this new version as well, and what was already a life-saving app has now gotten even better. Again, I don't know this guy, but I wanted to tell you that downloading this app for $15 or whatever it costs is a must, because that small price is nothing compared to the organization and time savings you're going to get once you use this app to help you stay organized. I’m going to say this again and again…the developer of this app is OUTSTANDING! Whenever a bug is found, he fixes it immediately, and strives for perfection across all systems and uses. I have never seen a developer with such an immediate passion for putting out a great product, and for ensuring his customers are happy. If Niko did more apps, I’d buy every single one even if I didn’t need them. I can’t tell you enough how much this Timeline app has helped me track my business time and keep me organized.

Version 1.1.1
Review by Jack Brannen

A waste of $15 - Read a great review online and saw enthusiastic customer reviews here, so I bought the app. However, it's absolutely not ready for prime time: 1. Counterintuitive, inconsistent design. It took me several minutes just to figure out how to do basic tasks like add a time to my project, and I'm not an inexperienced Mac user. Considerable design space (all the buttons and the custom keyboard shortcuts) are devoted to a proprietary and unnecessarily complex selection mechanism that deviates from the standard OS X selection method (i.e. click to select one, shift-click to select a range, apple-click to select noncontinuously). Furthermore, this system requires that selection and focus operate independently, which creates all kinds of confusing situations. 2. Poor keyboard support. Most basic tasks have no keyboard commands. 3. Some keyboard commands (e.g. ⌘N for a new task) are undocumented. 4. Overall very limited in the kinds of basic functions one would expect from an app like this. No way to edit a task end time, for instance. 5. The user interface, specifically, is limited. Project titles have a limit of about 60 characters, and the sidebar can't be resized. No way to get the app to run in normal windowed mode (defaults to menu bar mode). 6. Plenty of bugs. Some keyboard shortcuts set in preferences fail silently. Reordering of projects does not work as expected and new sub-projects self-generate when items are moved.
