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 1.4.1
Day mode is back by popular demand! Sorry - I didn't know it was this popular. If you click twice on 'Day' in the date selector, the current day will be selected, so now you can have the best of both worlds.
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 version 1.4:
New feature: There is now an option to export the "raw" data Timing captures in either JSON or CSV format.
New feature: You can now control Timing's export functionality via AppleScript. Please have a look at http://timingapp.com/faq.php#export for an example.
Improvement: You can now export durations in HH:MM:SS format rather than just raw second counts.
Improvement: Timing will now disable the idle timer when tracking Skype and Netflix.
Improvement: The timeline view now shows a bar graph rather than a scatter plot.
Improvement: Timing should now remeber its previous window position, date setting, selected projects and export settings.
Improvement: Replaced the "day" selection mode with just today.
Improvement: When displaying a single day, Timing will now group data per-hour rather than per every four hours.
Improvement: Timing will now track the URL scheme of websites so you can distinguish between HTTP and HTTPS.
Improvement: Timing will now ask before deleting a project.
Improvement: Right-clicking a URL (with scheme) will now give you the option to open it in the browser.
Improvement: You can now add custom activities from within the main application rather than having to use the menu item.
Bugfix: Problems with the timeline not showing up upon startup have been resolved.
Bugfix: Fullscreen mode is now available again.
More helpful than I could have ever imagined
I’m a freelancer, and time tracking has long been a bear for me. When a client is someone I know, I have a hard time even keeping track (aw shucks, you know, they’re my pal, I’ll just bill them for… some amount of time), and even when it’s just a regular client, it’s tough to maintain an accurate picture, and it just feels like more work.
Timing boils things down beautifully with zero work for you besides occasionally telling it what project a task falls under. Timing has resulted in what may be my first year of billing the full number of hours for everything I’ve done. Get it, now.
