Timing tracks your time so you don’t have to.
Have you ever spent all day in front of your Mac, just to wonder where the heck all that time went?
You could use a time tracker.
But to be honest, time tracking sucks.
You have to start and stop timers and enter what you did.
And if you forget that, you are back to square one.
Not so with Timing. Instead of making you do all the work, Timing automatically tracks how you spend your time. It logs which apps you use, which websites you visit, and which documents you edit. And if you are a freelancer, you can export that data to create invoices.
After tracking, you can drag and drop activities into projects. Some general categories like “Web Browsing”, “Office” and “Games” have already been prepared for you, but you can customize them any way you like.
Easily review what you’ve done this week with just one click. Sophisticated graphs show you how you spent your time each day and which projects (or websites *cough* Facebook *cough*) consumed most of your time. And if you need the raw data to create invoices, Timing can export it as CSV or JSON for further processing!
These are just a few of the applications for which Timing can track the document path or visited website:
– Chrome & Chromium
– MS Office
– OpenOffice & LibreOffice
– Parallels Desktop (app name and window title of Windows apps in Coherence mode are tracked)
– TextWrangler & BBEdit
– QuickTime Player
– VLC Player
Check the list at http://timingapp.com/faq.php#compatibility for a more extensive list. Even if the document path isn’t available for some other apps, Timing will automatically fall back to the window title!
Tracking is automatically suspended after a configurable time of inactivity. It will resume as soon as you return to the computer.
Download Timing today and never worry about forgetting to log time again!
REVIEWS BY OUR USERS
“This App is a Life Saver”
“Finally a time tracking app that does not make me tell it when I am going to start working on something. It allows me to sort it all out later. I am a new user, but already I can tell this is so different from all the other ones I have tried. Even though it does not track every app I use, it still records them in a way that I can Identify them and get my time int the correct job.
– I’ve been working so hard lately- nice to know now I can prove it.
Worth every penny! Thank You!”
“The Best Timing App Ever Made! I never liked having to remember to start the timer or add up all the time I have spent on a project. This app automatically times everything.
– Worth the price.
– You can color code your activities (programs)
– You can hide activities you don’t wan’t tracked
– Custom charting
– Private Mode available
– Create Custom Activities (Show certain program activities within)
Overall, it’s an amazing timing utility and every business or freelancer who needs to time their activity this is a must!”
“This app is great! I’ve been looking into time tracking apps to organize my day (but that work by tracking the actual activity on the computer, because I’ll always forget launching and stopping a manual timer) – and this one is by far the cheapest. As far as I can tell, it works amazingly! I especially like the ability to track computer idle time (and assign it to a project upon return), because these usually coincide with moments when mommy duties keep me from my Phd. I might actually graduate on time now! Thanks!!”
“Tells you exactly how you spent your day. With a small amount of time organising activities into different categories, you can see exactly where your day went. Maybe you spent 8 hours at the office- but did you actually spend 8 hours working?? This software tells you exactly how much time was spent on what on your mac.”
What’s New in Version 1.7.5:
Hi there! We would really appreciate if you could quickly re-post any positive review you might have posted for an old version of Timing so it shows up again for the current version — or post a new one 😉 Thank you for your support, it means a lot to us!
Improvement: Timing will no longer detect idle time when the frontmost app prevents the screen from going dark, e.g. because you are playing a video.
Bugfix: Further reduced AppleScript tracking. This should ensure that no apps behave differently when running Timing, in particular for Chinese users.
Bugfix: Dragging multiple activities that started with the same text onto a project will now add all these activities to the project.
Bugfix: Fixed a crash in the menu item for Timing 1.7.4 (which was only available for a short time).
