Customer Reviews

Easy to use, I’m more productive and able to prove it

Since I started splitting time between office and home, l I wanted was a simple way to keep track of my work time and keep record of what I was working on and when. All other solutions I looked at, had more features than I wanted or needed. My company already uses project management software, so I didn’t need a calendar or task manager. Just a stop watch and a list. This app is PERFECT for me.
The interface is sparse and utilitarian, which I appreciate. Plain = a small, lean app. The ingenuity is in the way it works not the way it looks.
Sometimes I forget to pause or end a task, but that’s a habit to learn.
Definitely, since I started using this app I am much more aware of where I spend too much time (editing and rewriting) and not enough time (everything else).
Highly recommend this app.

Superbly effective and simple

I use TaskLog to help me track and focus on the small tasks that need to get done; things that take 1-30 minutes long. The keyboard shortcuts are ideal, and make it fast to use TaskLog so that it fits nicely into my workflow. I tried about 6 different task tracker/motivating applications, but none were controllable from the keyboard which made them too burdensome for very short tasks.

Some things I would like added:
* Seconds — I like to race against myself and it would be nice to have seconds displaying in the menubar
* Target duration — I would like an optional target duration. Beside being a good self motivation technique, it is also helps you see how well you can estimate the time to complete a task. In the menubar it could display as a countdown timer, and go negative if you miss the target.

Simple - Missing one key feature for me

I’m a programmer and use this app to keep track of my billable hours. I have multiple projects I work on at a time, so in order to accurately sum up my time I have to really carefully name each task so it sorts properly when exported to excel. Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoy that I have it in my top menu bar so I can remember to pause / unpause the tracker.
