    My name is Julian Thayn, I am professional designer of 6+ years--but about a year ago with no previous programming experience I took up the task to teach myself iOS programming.

    After a year of learning and gaining experience doing contract apps for companies (and a whole lot of blood sweat and tears) I am ready to release the first app of my very own! I am proud to introduce Clocked!

    Clocked is a beautiful time tracker that is simple and satisfying to use. It has just the time tracking features you need and no more: track your time, save your time, export your time.

    Built with students and freelance creatives in mind.


    FEATURES

    •Tap to start, tap to stop. Runs in the background while you work.

    •Use the Pomodoro™ Technique? Use our Pomodoro timers to avoid work/study fatigue. Push notifications let you know when to take a short break.

    •Add groups to categorize your time

    •Using it for a job? By-the-second hourly wage calculation

    •Add time entry task and remember what you worked on

    •Saved entries are kept for easy review, editing and deletion

    •Added groups are kept for easy deletion and export

    •Export time entries via email

    •Export a specific date range

    Do you intend on making a native iPad version/universal app?

    Yes definitely, after the iPhone version gains some traction I'll have a universal update :)

    Some feedback..

    1. there doesn't seem to be a way to edit/delete groups once entered Found edit/delete groups in the export tab.
    2. it would be useful if groups could be sorted with the last entry at the top as new projects/clients tend to be the most frequently used. At the moment I have to scroll to the bottom of the list to find new entries.
    3. csv export for time tracking reports would be a better way of handling the data

    Other than that a great little app.

    Hey Swiss-G, I think these are fantastic feature suggestions and good feedback. I know that some of the feature set isn't as easily discoverable as it could be--I'm working on making that more intuitive without cluttering the experience.

    A couple questions--as to group sorting, are you talking about how they're sorted within the group selection roller? if so, rather than dynamically reorder based on use I was planning on allowing the user to reorder (and edit) groups however they wish in the next update. I think that's the best of both worlds (allowing reordering without trying to assume what the user wants)

    I also agree about CSV export, it's at the top of my feature set to-do for the next version of Clocked, as well as PDF report export.

    Seriously, thanks for the feedback and suggestions. Let me know if you have anything else or questions about what I've said above.

    Since we cannot review redeemed apps via codes on the AppStore...

    I like this app. it's non-cluttered and easy to use. The UI is great and I feel comfortable using it.

    One thing that I didn't like tho' is the fact I have to hit on "save entry". I lost a 3-hour long session, just because I forgot to hit that button (somehow, I thought when stopping the clock it would automatically save the range).

    iPsychedelic, thanks for the compliments and feedback :) I thank thats a great suggestion. In fact, I had the entries auto-saving in the pre-release version and took it out on release, I've planned on adding "auto-save" as a toggle in the settings in the next update.

    Thanks for the added confirmation that that would be useful!

    Hey Swiss-G, upon rereading your feedback I realized I read it wrong. Newest groups at the top (because they're most frequently used), makes a lot of sense. Expect to see it in the next update.

    I also like the idea of letting users auto sort their groups but a default setting of newest groups at the top of the list would be great.

    Auto saving entries would be useful as I have managed to lose a few entries as I have been using the app this week. Fortunately, it's easy to recreate the entries and alter the start and end points of an entry.

    Keep up the good work.
