    I have to register the hours I have working with a specific client in my line of work, and I am really looking for a good app to keep track of it during the day. I have tried My Time but it doesn´t really fit perfectly, could anyone here recommend a good alternative?

    Thanx :)

    So far I have tried;

    My Time
    Jobs 1.0

    And I really can´t say that I am impressed with any of them. I like Jobs the most but they are have one or more flaws :(

    I would like to bring to your notice Fossil, a new time tracking application for iPhone.

    Please have a look at the screenshots on iTunes page
    It is a very well designed application which is based on our experience while using the existing time tracking solutions on iPhone.

    I sincerely believe the screenshots and the feature description will interest anyone enough to look closely at the application.

    Even though it is only version 1.0, it is already one of the better time tracking applications in the app store at the moment.

    Disclaimer: I am the developer for Fossil.

    I use Time Master. A pretty slick app, though granted, it is one of the more expensive ones.

    How you can call it slick is beyond me. It is borderline hideous and there is absolutly nothing special about the UI of Time Master

    I use mini books, it's basically an application for freshbooks, although freshbooks is a little expensive, it's very intuative and the UI for mini books is great!

    I recently purchased TimeTracker [iTunes link], and it seems to be working well.

    Slick as in what I can do with it. It has a lot going for it. I also like that I can create invoices from within it, as well as sync with a free desktop app for backup and export

    There's a good review of it here

    I'm building a time tracker for the Mac. Let me know what you think...

    I've wanted a zero hassle time tracker for the Mac for a while so I'm building my own. It's a time tracker without timers called Lapsus.

    Initially, I'm targeting it at Ruby on Rails developers, but long term, it will be available for web designers, graphic designers etc. If you're interested in finding out more, you can sign up to the Beta at

    Thanks for reading. I'd love to hear your thoughts on such an application!

    Best Regards,

    As I've already posted, I'm overwhelmed by a time tracking software called iTimr, which is available on the app store. Time tracking with iTimr is really easy and absoloutely mobile with no further synchronization or something like this. Just try it out @ http//

    your sir-licous, peter :)

    I've never used any. I'm going to have to check some of these out too.

    If you can wait until mid-year 2011, you'll be happy

    I use Replicon's web-based timesheets for time tracking, and it is the best, IMO. This summer (maybe earlier) they're supposed to be releasing apps for smartphones including iPhone. They'll be great, if their browser-bassed versions are any indication.

    Just wanted to tell you there's a new, nice and 100% free Time Tracker in town ;) It's called OnePageOnly, because - well - everything's on one page. It's a sleek and intuitive web app, with some nice functionalities. If you want to, you can track your tasks in real time, so that you don't have to fiddle with time-sheets anymore.

    As a side effect, it makes it harder to lie to yourself ;) I was a bit surprised when I decided to track my work day in real time, pausing the clock on every downtime, like coffee break or checking the web. I won't say how much "real" work I clocked in 8 hours, because someone might be watching, but I think you should give it a try:

    You can also follow us on Twitter and Facebook or check our small Dev Blog. And if you have some feedback about the app, feel free to share it here or via the feedback form!

    I use OfficeTime for my freelance design business. Worth going through the free trial period to see if it works for you.

    I started using OnePageOnly and I think it's pretty cool!

    I just click on start/ stop and it does the rest of work for me (almost literally).
    I may enjoy my work without worrying about time.

    I'd recommend TimeDoctor. It's got lots of features.

    I've been using it for months now, and I don't have anything bad to say about it. It's been awesome. I also tried odesk's timetracking tool. It was also nice. :cool:

    At work I have to use for tracking client projects. It comes with a mac application with a stopwatch running in the background and you only have to click when you are making a break or you change the current task you're working on. Afterwards, I can see how long I've been working on a special task in detail.

    Finch does time tracking in an automated way: It records what windows you have open and learns how to tag them. At the end of the day you get a bar chart showing where your time went. It's a really great app if you have trouble with the traditional 'stopwatch' type apps.

    Finch is a good app.

    But an even better one is Timing, available at the app store, including a free lite version.

    Like Finch, Timing automatically records the active window and takes away any need to hit a start/stop button. But Timing does much more than Finch. In Timing, you can create a project and drag a folder onto it. Now any file you work on in that folder automatically gets applied to that project. Timing also allows manual entry for billable time spent away from the computer.

    While Timing my not be the prettiest app on the block, it currently does the best job of tracking time of any app I've tried ... and I've tried a lot.

    Timesheet app works with QuickBooks and MYOB

    We are the authors, so if you are looking for an app that was designed to work with QuickBooks or MYOB read on.

    If you use QuickBooks Windows/Mac, or MYOB and are looking for a handy way to track your billable and non billable time on an iPhone then take a look at Zed Timesheets for QB


    • Designed to work with QuickBooks, think of it as Quick Timer on an iPhone
    • Run Timers for task you are working on
    • Easy export to QuickBooks, simply email yourself a Timer (iif) file.
    Watch a demo of the app
