Could be Better

So far I’ve used this app for around a month and it does a good job in allowing me to track my hours on my desktop/laptop. However, with this recent update that allows “device tracking”, it isn’t what I thought it would be like. For some reason you must have location tracking on at all times in order to track your time. Also, it can’t even do that correctly. When I checked my phone at the end of the day it said I had no time on my device which was definitely wrong as shown on my apple screen time. Even then, there is no option so far to categorize the time on my phone. Right now, this new feature doesn’t add anything, but for tracking time on desktop it’s fine.

Desktop awesome! Phone disappointing...

First of all I must say RescueTime increased my productivity by a huge margin and helps me stick to my goals.
I downloaded the mobile app so I could see my desktop usage on the go but was a bit disappointed since it allows no date filtering or goal setting from the app, I wish the app would let me see everything just like the website.
Hope it gets added soon!
Keep it up!

Useful app that offers useful insight on my productivity

Thanks for the hardwork for making this app available. So far it's good out of the box. But someway somehow my mobile time always show as 0h|0m. Not really a problem to me since I mostly work with my Mac,but it would nice if the mobile time is accurate
