Ratings and Reviews
Obsessed with Caato+
I seriously LOVE this app. I use it on my MacBook and my home office iMac computer. I am a law school student and I love tracking the time I spend studying in each class. I noticed from the time I press play on the time I jump right in to studying. Knowing that your time is being recorded gives me an incentive to study and not do other things — like scrolling through social media. The app is SUPER easy to use… I put down a folder for each class and then I add sub folders for the different types of studying I do. Whether its doing practice exams or briefing cases or even studying multiple choice. It really makes a difference in knowing how much time and effort I have put in to my work. I would totally recommend this app to ANYONE that wants to track their time — for anything! Not just school! For work or for projects… It’s really user friendly and totally worth the subscription! Its free if you don’t use the “syncing” piece or adding different/ more than one folder. For me, I definitely need the Pro version. I love it!
Was Useful - Now A Disappointment
I used to rely on the previous version as a (reliable) method of tracking time with clients. I shared its name with colleagues, and never looked for an alternative. It was/is a bit in the dark ages, and needed some updates for cloud support, system integration, etc. Instead of a paid upgrade, we get this: another once-decent app that tried to fly too close to the sun, and be something it’s not.
I am a software architect and I understand the desire for a continuous trickle of profit for an app vs initial purchase spikes, but this is not the way to do it; this is not the app to do it. This is not Adobe or some high-end music instrumentation library where a subscription can be logical depending on usage. This is a basic time tracker that has a few evernote-esque additions and is trying to be more than it needs to be.
If the developer needs more money, charge more for the app up front. If anyone goes for this subscription model, that’s their prerogative. I think I’ll end up writing my own if I dont find any alternatives (and if so, charge a reasonable fee and keep it streamlined for its purpose).
Always available at my fingertips
The short here is that I can track time in a way that fits my personal workflow without having to add a lot of new process to my day. For me it’s a godsend. Just click and go. Timesheets are made really straightforward now, and I don’t have to remember back at the end of the day about what I did. In the end, it saves me time and frustration. That’s worth $60/year - or less than $6/month. I’ll spend that on 2 starbucks in two days.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
