Tyme is a simple and effective time tracking tool for anyone who wants to keep an overview of the times they have worked.

Everything at a glance.
With Tyme, everything you need is right there. An instant overview of the times you’ve worked, your budget or deadlines.

Quick access & Autostart.
Control Tyme right from the Menubar, start timers via hotkeys and add notes to your time entries at any time. Tyme can also start automatically at system startup.

Search & Archive.
Filter your projects and tasks and move completed projects or tasks to the archive. Sort them by name, due date or by your own priorities. In Tyme, your project list never gets messy.

Time tracking, Mileage tracking and Expenses.
Besides tracking time, Tyme can keep track of mileage and expenses.

Multiple timers.
If you need to have more than one active timer, start as many as you want.

Multiple time tracking modes:
Whether you are interested in when exactly you started or stopped working on a task or just need to know how many hours you’ve spent, Tyme covers it both.

Extended hierarchy.
Whether you need just projects and tasks or more detail, in Tyme, you can add sub tasks and categories, as well as choose the depth of the hierarchy by yourself.

Tyme can keep track of already billed periods. No more double billing.

Use the statistics to monitor your workload, your working times, how often you took a break and what your average day looks like. The statistics also offer a forecast of your workload for the next weeks. Besides daily, weekly, monthly, annual time frames, you can also choose custom ranges.

Cloud Sync.
Tyme can sync your data across all your devices. Choose between iCloud or Dropbox for syncing.

Calendar Sync.
All recorded times can be synced as events to your calendar. You can rearrange events in the calendar and edit notes. Tyme will sync back to your calendar.

Forgot to start a timer? It's the middle of the night and a timer is still running? Do you have deadline closing in or you're about to exceed your planned budget? Tyme can remind you of these things. No need to configure your working times. Tyme learns your habits and will remind you at the exact right time.

Export & Scripting.
Generate time sheets as PDF, export your data as CSV or JSON to use it in other applications or use AppleScript to connect to the workflows of other apps. You can also export the whole database as a backup file.

Your time entries can be exported to GrandTotal. More plugins will come...

Various Import Formats.
Import your data from Tyme 1, CSV files, mite, Harvest, a Tyme 2 backup file or via AppleScript.

Keyboard control.
Tyme can be used without a mouse and has keyboard shortcuts for almost all actions. 

Mobile App.
With the Tyme iOS app, you can track your time, mileage and fixed costs on the go. It also offers geofencing - No need to manually start or stop a timer; it can be done automatically based on your location.

Tyme for iOS is available as a separate purchase.

Great application - Recommend

S. Coffman

If you’re looking for a versital tool to track your time, this is a great app. I had been using the cloud-based “MyHours” website, which was free. When that site started being offline when I needed to log time, I looked for a replacement. The impotrant thing for me was portability, allowing me to work on multiple machines or my phone. This app does all: Through the syncing function, I’m able to sync time logged between my desktop, laptop, iPhone and iPads. I can start time from one system, and end it on another; I can create a client, job and task on one device, and it updates everywhere else. The menu tool icon is helpful, and once you have your jobs listed you can easily switch between them just by going to the menu bar, or by using pre-assigned hot keys. The reporting feature is great too, allowing you to easily see time worked as a whole or with individual projects. I can’t recommend it enough - it’s great.

Use with mobile too!


Since this app is more than the $0.99 I usually spend, I was hesitant to get the mobile version. It just looked so clean and simple and colorful, so I ‘splurged.’ It took a bit of figuring out how it worked (it’s simple now!), but I wouldn’t go to any other time tracker. Also, I thought the price for the desktop app was a bit much for a simple time tracker, but it is invaluable!! A few proverbial coffees and it’s paid for… and I do go get coffee! HIGHLY recommend this app.

Its a good app with some issues


I have a contract that requires spreadsheets for invoices… Thyme doesn’t export to spreadsheets, rather to pdf. Then I have to convert the pdf to a spreadsheet and reformat the whole thing to include everything.
Recently it hasn’t been exporting all of my entries. I had to stop using it.

I LOVE the keyboard shortcut functionality, and the fact that it retains entries.
I also like the color coding system.
I like the interface and aesthetic.
