Gah! I just want a simple time tracking app that shows the hours spent thru the day!

I've searched endlessly and i can't find an app that does what i'm looking for, but it's such a simple and useful functionality that an app for it MUST exist.

It's SUPER simple. All i want it to have is basically one main button. when you hit the button, it starts the timer. When you hit the button again, it stops the timer and saves the elapsed duration into the log, and automatically starts a new timer. At any moment before, during or after a timer has finished you can select the category of how that time was spent.

N.B. I do NOT just want it to record just a single collective amount of time for each task, no. I need it to show me the duration of each session.

And that's basically ALL i want it to do! Bonus points if the task groups you create can be assigned colors, and bonus if it can *also* show you the collective amount of time you've spent on every task each day or week or whatever, and huge bonus points if the app is simple and easy to use.

For example:


_________________________________

Select task "read book"



Hit button -->
timer starts counting up from 0:00



10 minutes later hit button again -->
log shows "read book 0:10 minutes", AND
new timer starts counting up from 0:00



Select task "write notes"




5 minutes later hit button again -->
log shows "write notes 0:05 minutes /// read book 0:10 minutes", AND
new timer starts counting up from 0:00

It's so fricken simple!!! Why can't i find an app that does this?!
