Easy to use, intergrates with workflow
Really like the new version. Sometime while I wasn’t paying attention they added a way to keep the timesheet visible at all times. You add time just like you do in the web app. Neither the web app, nor the desktop app have lost any of my data. (This was mentioned in another comment.) No crashes, and everything works the way I’d expect.
Now that I can keep the timesheet visible at all times, the desktop app fits into my workflow a lot better. Seeing the timesheet helps make sure I don’t leave timers running or forget to record a time entry.
Two downsides: First, if I add a new project on the site, I have to restart the desktop app before the new project will show up in the list. (Not sure if I’m not patient enough for it to poll an updated list of projects, or if it only updates on launch.) Second, the list of entries appears in the order it was added. I switch across multiple projects pretty frequently, so it’d be better for me if it was alphabetized by project.
Bugs and more bugs.
The number of bugs in this and every other version of this app is enought to make me want to leave the service all together. Of course, there’s a barrier to exit, but one of these days when I have a bit of time, I’ll shut it down. I’ve contacted support directly and reported a lot of bugs spanning multiple versions, but they never get fixed. The app loses my information all the time, and that’s unacceptable. If you were thinking of signing up with harvest, don’t. There are better services out there.
Just a heads up: not (necessarily) free
The Harvest app requires a Harvest account, which has four pricing options, and only one is free. You can download the app for free, and use it for free with a max of 4 clients and 2 projects.
