Great App, missing one crucial feature...
I’ve been pretty happy with this so far. It’s simple to use, keeps track of those times that you may forget to turn it off (though with it in the top bar it hasn’t actually happened as much as it used to) and is easily searchable.
My main complaint, and I hope the developers are reading these: is that when you export it doesn’t consolidate activities into a single time.
Generally when I work I’ll turn off my timer whenever I get up to take a break. As a result some jobs will have 5-10 entries. My client doesn’t need to see these, so as a result I’m back to typing names and times into my spreadsheet manually.
Also for export it would be nice to be able to remove the hashtag formatting and simply have the cell be the text following the hashtag. The @ symbol is less of a problem because it represents the client in my system and is simply a tool to consolidate jobs for billing.
Aside from those minor complaints, I would highly recomend this.
I’ve spent years searching for the Holy Grail of time tracking apps and this one comes very close. It has good reporting and ease of use down pat. I’d love it if the idle timer was tweaked to allow you to shunt the idle time into an alternate task, but this is but a quibble. The “missing” feature, in my opinion, is the ability to simply add time to a tracking item without having to fiddle with start and stop times… I’d love to be able to simply add an arbitrary number of minutes or hours to a tracking item. Aside from that, an excellent app and well worth the money.
