Great app continues to get even better - This is a terrific app that is so simple to use - if you need to track your time on different projects this is the simplest to use I've ever seen and absolutely the best. It allows for a nice grouping of tasks and projects, and lives in the menu bar, making it simple to start, stop, edit, and manually add times. I don't want to add overhead and spend time tracking my time, because that costs me money. This app is so intuitive and seemless and easy to use that it's just perfect. The best part is that the developer is so responsive, and continuing to improve the product without bloating it. The export features are great and simple to use. The database is also stored in sqlite3 in a very well-organized way, so for command-line junkies, it's easy to script automated exports.

Full-featured yet easy to use - I knew there had to be a good, easy-to-use, and inexpensive app with which I could keep track of time I spend on multiple projects, each of which has several tasks that I might perform over a period of days or weeks, starting and stopping individual tasks as I worked on multiple projects. “hr” does exactly that. Once launched, it presents itself as a menu-bar icon. It lets me organize my work into a three-level hierarchy. With hr, I created several “Categories.” Each of them represents one project. In each Category I then created the tasks for that project. Starting a task timer creates what hr calls a “Session,” but I rename those to reflect the work that I am actually doing for that task. If I am interrupted, I click the Pause button to stop the active task timer. When I’m ready to resume work on the interrupted task, I click the Pause button to re-activate that timer, which continues from the time where I paused it. When I finish a session, I click the Stop button for its task, and rename that “Session” to identify the work I did. The built-in Export feature saves my data as a CSV file. I can export one or more tasks, one or more categories (projects), or all of my data, then open it in Excel or another spreadsheet app for reporting purposes. The data contains the duration of each Session in both hh:mm:ss format and as a decimal number of hours. It includes subtotals for each task, and a Grand Total for the exported data. hr meets all of my needs well. Support by the developer was excellent, with a response to my emailed question arriving in a few minutes. One very minor “nit” to pick — When I pause a task by clicking the Pause button (two vertical bars), it is not obvious how to restart that timer. I think the button of a paused timer should change from the two vertical bars to the standard “Play” button (a triangle pointing toward the right).
