TimeJot: a time log / journal
By Niftybrick Software
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
TimeJot is a time-based journal, for all situations where you need to keep a log of when things happen. TimeJot is perfect for tracking:
✔ When and for how long you go jogging, to the gym, or exercise
✔ When you take medication, to ensure you don't forget or double-dose
✔ Time spent on different clients, projects or jobs, for billing purposes
✔ Any type of behavior modification effort, such as quitting smoking
TimeJot lets you attach a note of any length to each log entry, which makes it perfect for:
✔ Making a note of when and what you eat throughout the day if you are dieting or monitoring your food intake
✔ Keeping a log of client hours, with billing notes for each time block
✔ Making work notes for completed tasks, along with a record of when they were finished
Parents in particular may find TimeJot useful for keeping records for consultation with a professional:
✔ Keep a time and temperature log for a child running a fever
✔ Record incident times and notes for behavioral therapy
✔ Record nursing times and durations for a newborn or infant
✔ Keep an exercise log for consultation with a trainer or coach
Time Jot is flexible:
✔ Define as many separate time logs as you like
✔ Record the duration of events (ex: how long you jog) or just when they occur (ex: when you take medication)
✔ While timing an event, you can freely exit the TimeJot application and return to it later; the timer continues to run.
✔ Email a complete report of logged events to yourself or a professional

One of my major go-to apps...
I've used various programs to track my workouts, and I even created a database in FileMaker Pro (that I ported to my iPod Touch using FMTouch), but this application does a better job than any or all of them. I create a category, like, say, Pool workout. Then, when I go to work out, I select it and hit start. Coming out of the pool I hit stop. I can add a note or alter the time if needed. It's easy to view all my workouts and compare them for frequency or length. I also use it for tracking Pool maintenance. I can hit one button to record that I did routine pool stuff, and it's easy to see how often I'm doing it. I really love this app. It's simple, straightforward, and does everything I need for the things I use it for. And their customer service is terrific. I wrote to complain that I couldn't order Categories and quickly got a note explaining that I _could_ do it and outlining the steps to do so. The response was not only fast and helpful, but very polite, too. So, from where I'm sitting. I see a great little app from a terrific little company.
Super helpful for time management
Seeing where your time goes is like seeing where your money goes....when you start to track them, then you end up wasting less. I track projects at work so I can tell my boss how much time a project takes (if he says I'm taking too much time), or how much time I spend picking up the slack when someone else has dropped the ball. At home, sometimes I think I am spending too much time running errands, or doing chores, but when I see it on TimeJot, it turns out not to be a lot of time (I just hate doing housework). Very useful, and I use it every day. The app is great as it is. I would only suggest that the app lets you add the total time for a date range...like, how much time you spent during last month, or last week on something.
Good basic event tracker
This app works well, but if I could make one suggestion it would be to revise the main screen so that you could record an event in any category with a single tap. The current design required one tap to select a category, a second tap to record a time, and then backing out to the category screen.
If I've got several events, any of which could occur and I don't need to enter any details beyond the date/time the event occurred this flow could be greatly streamlined.
A details button could allow drilling down to the current screens but it would be optional. Recording many events in multiple different categories could be done without ever leaving the single screen with all the categories listed.
