Timing is the best way to keep track of the time you spend with your Mac. Find out where your time goes - without ever having to start a timer again!
Timing automatically tracks which documents you are editing, which applications you use, and the domains of the websites you visit. You'll never have to worry about forgetting to start or stop a timer again - there are none! It's all done in the background!
After tracking, just drag and drop activities into projects. Some general categories like "Web Browsing", "Office" and "Games" have already been prepared for you, but you can customize them any way you like!
Review this week's activities with just one click! Sophisticated graphs show you how you spent your time each day and which projects consumed most of your time.
Timing will automatically suspend tracking after a configurable time of inactivity (150 seconds by default). It will resume as soon as you return to the computer.
Some of the applications supported by Timing:
- Chrome & Chromium
- MS Office
- TextWrangler & BBEdit
- Smultron & Fraise
- MacVim & AquaMacs
- QuickTime Player
- VLC Player
And many more! Check the list at http://timingapp.com/faq.php for a more extensive list of compatible applications.
NOTE FOR PHOTOSHOP & TOAST USERS
If you are experiencing issues with Photoshop, Toast, or other applications while running Timing, please disable AppleScript tracking for Photoshop (or the affected application) in the Timing preferences. This will avoid the issues and doesn't impact tracking accuracy.
What's New in Version 1.3.4
Thanks for reading these release notes ;-) You'd do me a huge favor by leaving a positive review on the Mac App Store! If you already posted one for an older version of Timing, please submit it again to make sure that it shows up for the latest version. A good App Store rating is extremely important to me :-)
Changes in this version:
Improvement: Titles of custom activities are auto-completed again and their ordering is improved.
Bugfix: Improved idle time detection under OS X Mavericks.
Bugfix: Fixed a possible crashing issue when visiting data:image URLs.
As a seasoned project lead and studio manager in the world of interactive exhibitions and technical demos and game development, this is by far the best time tracking solution i have ever used. Having evaluated too many GTD apps to mention, this is the only time tracking app I will ever need. It is also wonderful that the developer has priced it fairly and not opted to do any sort of a monthly subscription fee, etc. The price of this app pays for itself in the first day of its use. If i could, i would give it 6 stars.
Nice to haves in future releases (or maybe to add to a pro version):
- Better viz options of your data
- Possible integration with Trello or similar apps
- Time tracking @ the document level for Skype
A perfect app. Minimal, simple to use, accurate and flexible.
a must buy.
I love this app. I work a lot from home, on my laptop, and the most loathesome task ever is taking notes of when I start and stop, since I flow a lot from job to job. Timing keeps track of everything I do on my laptop, even to which files I edited and for how long, all by itself, on my machine and not out in cyberspace, and even lets me post off machine hours by hand. This is really the bee’s knees. THANK YOU.
Simple, Useful, Unobtrusive
This useful app does a wonderful job of tracking computer use by web site visited, app used, and files opened and actively being used. Very helpful to help track time on a specific project or just generally monitoring computer use.
