Make time tracking less time consuming with Punch In, a simple and efficient worktimer made to help you keep track of your work. Syncs across multiple Macs, shows your projects in detail, a menubar for easy access, running indicator on the dock icon, plus more!

What's New in Version 2.7.3

• A font bug surfaced and made Punch In tricky to use for some users. It should no longer be an inconvenience for you. Thank you for your patience.
• We added some tooltips here and there to help you get back on track in case you get lost.
• You can now change the start date for your project. Yes, we know, it's been long overdue. High fives!
• The header now also displays ’project - client - time’. Click it once, twice, thrice and baam, there it is!
• More space made things even more attractive.
• Fixed: Not sure why anyone would want to, but we took the opportunity to fix a bug that crashed the app when trying to delete a running session.

Customer Reviews

Love this app! One issue with latest update.

I have been using this app for a few years and really love it. The feature I REALLY like is the little menu bar icon that you can use to switch projects. I switch back and forth constantly all day so this feature is SO useful.
ONE COMPLAINT: I just updated to the latest version and that little menu bar icon, which used to have a red and green dot which showed you if the timer was running or stopped, no longer has those red & green dots! PLEASE add this feature back in!!!! If you put that feature back in it is a 5-star app for sure!


This really helps me keep track of time spent on multiple projects. I would give it 5 stars if:
1) Dropdown menu for each project to set the status to In Progress, Billed, or Paid
2) Color-code the project rows depending on the status of the project.
Otherwise, love this.
