Customer Reviews

Love the app, but sync is way broken

I absolutely love Tyme for its simplicty, attractive look, and the ease of starting and stopping timers right from the menu bar. I use it daily to log the time that I work.

But I keep really hoping for a fix to the sync issues that persist across versions and hinder it greatly. I use Tyme on an iMac and MacBook, generally using both daily, so it’s important that I get a daily total from both sources, and I consistenly have trouble getting that to work. I think the problem might start when I forget to stop the timer on my laptop and shut it down with a timer still running. Instead of correcting itself the next time I log in, it goes into a permanent state of brokenness: the sync spinner spins forever, EVERY time the app is running, and never actually syncs. It seems that the only way to fix this is to trash all of the data and start fresh. This has happened to me several times, and is hugely frustrating. But if that ever gets fixed, it will be the perfect time tracking app!


Simple, easy to use, does what it says it’s going to do. No bugs, FAQs address pretty much everything, and if you can’t figure something out, the developer is extremely responsive. I’m very happy with it.

Wonderful App

Great app. I use it to estimate how long it will take me to complete a project…works just as I’d expect it to. Love it!
