    billable!

    http://clickablebliss.com/billable is pretty good. I use it all the time. Customisable invoices make it really useful to me. :)

    Are you looking for a web service or a desktop application?

    I don't know what it is about that app, but I have ZERO need for it currently, and I can barely resist the urge to buy it.

    well, i think job timer is worth the few bucks. you can also check versiontracker. there was a pretty good freeware app, but i honestly forget the name right now :( With it, you can check # of hours per job broken down by task as well.

    Neoffice and use the spreadsheet.

    Time and Billing apps are generally too complex to develop for free. You're better off searching for a spreadsheet template for a free Office clone app.

    On the job is awesome. It does everything I need without the extra bloat in most time tracking applications.

    Exactly. The reason I asked whether you wanted a desktop app or webware is because I've yet to see a quality desktop app for this task that's freeware. I've heard good things about Billable, but again, it's not freeware.

    WorkTimer is a freeware application which takes the simple, straightforward approach.

    iBiz

    iBiz is an excellent applications. If you are doing real light work, it has a 5 minute time to allow you to get a couple of things done.

    If you are making money to a point where you need such an app, give the author his due and buy the app.

    Max.
