Tracker time mac


The Best Mac Time Tracking Apps in 2017

It’s never been so easy to get distracted. Forget social media — even if you have the willpower to ignore your Facebook feed, can you resist the ping of a new email notification? The interesting headline of the latest Entrepreneur article? The pop up of a text on your iPhone?

Despite the fact that every day I faced a mountain of work, I still found myself getting sucked in by these online distractions. Luckily, after many, many failed attempts to solve the problem, I discovered time tracking.

Mac time tracking tools can be lifesavers for freelancers and employers who primarily work on the OSX operating system. They serve as a reminder, disciplinary assistant, and motivation booster for both solo freelancers and home-based work teams.

Even better, many Mac time management tools often come with financial management functions, such as generating invoices for your clients. Employers using Mac time tracking applications can have the assurance that they are getting value for money paid to their employees.

Whether you’re a freelancer, founder, or remote employee, time tracking software helps make you and your team more productive. In this post I’ve rounded up the best Mac time tracking apps to make your decision easier.

Hubstaff is hands down the best Mac time tracking application. Workers log time and employers can check the time logs complete with screen shots and timesheets to verify that the employee has put in the contractual amount of hours daily.

The Hubstaff time tracker is also great for companies and individuals who hire remote workers and freelancers. With this desktop client, you can see what your freelancer is doing in real-time anywhere in the world.

Installing Hubstaff’s Mac app will lead to instant benefits for your entire team. First, your team members and freelancers will never have to worry about being under-paid again. They can use the one-click timer to track their time to the second—so if they tell you a task will take 4 hours, and it ends up taking 5, you can pay them what they’re owed.

This accountability goes the other way, as well. As a manager, you can view each worker’s time logs, activity level (based on their keyboard and mouse activity), and optionally, random screenshots of their work. If you need even more oversight, Hubstaff gives you a list of which applications and URLs an individual has been using while they’re on the clock.

With all of Hubstaff’s integrations—which range from project management apps to customer support software—you’ll get even more use out of this time-tracking tool.

The Hubstaff app is available for OS X (10.6 Snow Leopard and later), Windows (2000 and later), and Linux (distributions released in 2010 or later). Hubstaff also has an iOS app currently available on the app store >>

On the Job lets you track time with an automatic idle time detection and sits quietly on your menu bar. Every time you start the timer, a new session will be automatically created. It can also generate invoices based on customizable hourly rates.

With On the Job, you can organize your clients’ information by their names, addresses, their hourly rates as well as the different currencies for different clients.

Klok features a visual display of your time and tasks and allows you to customize the organization of your clients and projects. It automatically begins a new timer when you start working on a different task, and you can always adjust the time later.

You can also connect Klok to other time-tracking apps, such as Harvest and Freshbooks (more on them later), for added functionality. Other Klok functions include timesheets that can be exported, generation of invoices and dashboard reporting.

With Harvest, you’ll never have an excuse not to track your time. Not only will it run on your Mac app, but it’s also available on your phone, web browser, and even your Apple Watch.

Plus, once you integrate it with the other apps you use, you’ll see the option to track your time pop up in Trello, Jira, Zendesk, and so on.

Harvest also makes it easy to get paid. Once you’ve completed a task or work cycle, you can instantly convert your billable hours into invoices. Want to add an expense? Just snap a picture of your receipt, and the cost will be pulled into your invoice.

Probably the best choice if you’re looking for a free mac time tracking application, Freshbooks is both a time- and finance management tool. You can track team time sheets, set timers and time limits, or handle accounting tasks from the Freshbooks desktop widget.

Whether you use Toggl’s web app, or download its Mac version, tracking your time is as simple as logging in and clicking a timer.

Of course, Toggl’s functionality goes beyond that. Like any standard time-tracking app, it lets you allocate your time toward specific projects. But you can also create sub-projects, give your entries tags (think “bug fix” or “SEO research”), and visually organize your time graphs by giving each project its own color.

Furthermore, Toggl’s clean, streamlined design makes it really pleasant to use.

Once you’ve completed a project, share your report with your client via a custom URL, or export it as an Excel, CSV, or PDF file.

You want to make the process of tracking your time as effortless as possible. While Tyme doesn’t run automatically, it does let you set up a custom keyboard shortcut so you can launch the app with a quick tap of a button.  And once you’re in, almost every action has a corresponding hotkey. In theory, you’d never have to touch your mouse.

Tyme’s dashboard gives you an overview of your current clients and your most recent entries for each. Being able to get a bird’s-eye view of your work is definitely handy, and Tyme’s sleek, futuristic interface is fun. However, I’ve noticed that Tyme’s dashboard can start to get cluttered if you have more than two projects going at once.

For those of you who always forget to track your time, you’ll appreciate Tyme’s reminder feature. The app learns your habits and will you send you friendly messages to start or stop your timer if you’re doing something unusual.

In addition to time, Tyme will also keep track of your mileage and business expenses.

To get more insight into how you spend your time, give Timing a try. Unlike most of the other options on this list, this app doesn’t have a “turn on/turn off” button: It runs around the clock.

If you open it up, you can see everything you’ve been doing, with as much or as little detail as you’d like. Timing automatically groups your activity into categories, like “Web browsing” or “Games.” Open up a category to learn how much time you spent into a specific application, then go one step deeper and check out which files or URLs you opened.

You can assign time to projects, but you’ll have to do it manually by creating a new file and then dragging and dropping your relevant time entries into it.

If you’re looking for simple, no-frills time-tracking software, check out OfficeTime. Its interface is nothing to write home about, but it makes up for its appearance with several handy features.

Like its Quick Access option. Simply click on your Mac’s top navigation bar, choose the project you’re working on, and start the timer. There’s no need to open the app itself, so you don’t need to waste a single second.

When you need a break, want to switch projects, or would like to stop timing, just open the menu again and select the relevant option.

OfficeTime also syncs with iCal, which makes it easy to bill clients for meetings or blocks of work you’ve scheduled.

Fanurio is a budget-friendly option for freelancers and small teams. It’s fairly flexible when it comes to logging work: you can bill tasks in units or hours, add expenses and trips, and record products (like a set of icons, a blog post, design mock-ups, etc.).

Fanurio also gives you a couple different ways to track your time. Of course, you can open up the app to control the timer, but you can also start and stop it using the drop-down menu in your menu bar or the icon in your dock icon menu. Handily, the Fanurio badge in your dock icon menu will display how much time has elapsed.

To help you stay on top of things, Fanurio reminds you to start, pause, or stop your timer based on your regular work patterns.

Most time-tracking apps are focused on the present: You start and you stop the timer depending on what you’re doing in that very moment.

But Timely is all about the future. First you schedule your work, then you log your time. So, let’s say you’re planning on Skyping with a client for an hour on Wednesday. Timely integrates with most calendar tools, so your meeting will automatically show up in the app. When you begin your Skype session, click the Timely entry to start tracking your time. When the meeting is over, click it again to end tracking. You’ll get a side-by-side comparison of how much time you scheduled versus how long it actually took.

Timely’s calendar view is really elegant and easy to navigate. Each project is color-coded, so you can get a visual overview of what you’re working on each day, week, or month.

Every time you work on a new project, you’re probably switching apps several times. First, you use an estimate tool, then you switch to a time-tracker, then you switch to an invoice generator, and finally, you log into your payment app.

Well, with Billings Pro, you can do it all within a single platform. This tool lets you prepare estimates, create detailed time logs, send invoices, and track who’s paid you.

That’s not the only way Billings Pro provides convenience. It’s available on your Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, so you’ll never be far away from a digital timer.

Tick is designed to keep you and your teammates on budget. After you create a time budget for an entire project or an individual task, Tick will show you how much time you’ve logged versus how much you’ve got left. This feature is definitely useful for freelancers trying not to exceed how much time they’ve budgeted for a specific client, but it’s even more useful for managers who want to compare how much time each worker has logged.

Tick’s reporting features are also useful for team leaders. You can look at the data for each employee, or toggle your view to see how much time you’ve billed each client. Since Tick integrates with Quickbooks and Freshbooks, turning these reports into invoices is fairly painless.

This app integrates with Basecamp as well. Track time within Basecamp projects and instantly see how much time is left in the budget, export Basecamp to-do items as tasks (or import Tick tasks as Basecamp to-dos), and see how much time your workers have logged without leaving your Basecamp discussion.

Top 5 Time-Tracking Mac Apps for Freelancers

If you’re a freelancer, regardless of whether you’re a web developer, designer or writer, then you have probably considered and understand why it takes a lot more discipline and motivation to stay focused on the task than let your mind (and fingers) wander elsewhere.

Customer Reviews
Excellent App, well designed and implemented.
by RRettke

I have been using the free version for the better part of a year to track one volunteer project I work on. Caato is so easy to use, it’s quite remarkable. I finally decided that although the volunteer project tracking is awesome, I need to get my personal life in order and find out just where I am wasting time on foolishness. The way to do that is to track my time, so I just upgraded to the Pro version. For those who want notes and a myriad of other features, the business version (+) may be what you need, but for me, the simplicity of the interface and the fact that it doesn’t have all sort of other things it can do is ideal. It does what I want it to do, it Tracks Time Usage. As a professional software developer for over 40 years with a specialty of database and user interface design, all I can say is that this is an excellent app. Kudus to all involved, it is well designed, well implemented, professionally supported. Everything I could hope to have in an App.

Great and super functional app!
by JoJoBean2222

I don’t know what the problem is with the person that apparently wants everything free without any strings attached (too bad for him I guess lol), but I can say this app is NO backup app, it’s the main one, and if he’s using this one as he says as a “backup” to 2 other apps, and he’s as frustrated as he says he is, he would just stop using this one, so apparently this one is pretty good.

I’ve checked out almost a dozen different timer apps for Mac, and so far this one has the most features and a reasonable price as well. It does exactly what it says it will do and it does it well. I work at home and need to bill clients for time on spent on website projects, and this app works great for that. …

Having said all that I’d love to see one thing for sure that Mr. “I use this as a backup” suggested as well as one of my own:- Please give us the ability to input the time to start/end when editing a timer instead of having to calculate the minutes/hours to get the right time. - Please also give us the total minutes in the window of the timer we are editing as there is no way to identify which one we’re editing, to be sure we’re editing the correct one, other than looking at the timers which can be boggling at times.

These really are the only Cons I’ve found in this app, and that’s pretty minimal and definitely they do not hinder the use of the app in any way, just could be more convenient for the user. Kudos to the developers!

Finally found a timer that works for me!
by iMackGirl

I have the PRO version, and it’s ok, but could stand some improvements to the functionality. The reason for the 3 stars is that I feel there are some key features missing.

MISSING:

1) Drag-n-drop: You cannot drag and drop Projects in any order you want2) Completed: You cannot mark a project as completed, you can only “hide” it— and after you have a lot of projects in there, it’s not even alphabetized, so you have to really dig through4) Notes: You can’t add notes to Tasks

I have been using it for a long while now, and the projects have really stacked up in the hidden ones, and when I’m digging through them to find an old project (I use the tracker to see how long it took me to work on past projects, helps me with more accurate quotes) it really is HARD to find anything. I have ended up spending like 10 minutes once just trying to find 1 specific project and that was a waste of my time. Because of this, I am starting to rethink how I manage my projects - I have to find some way to keep a LOG of all the projects in some other app now.

Otherwise, I’m glad I found it - there really isn’t anything else out there that works well. Overall, it does what it needs to do. Doesn’t crash, just keeps time. Just wish there was some way to keep better logs!

Customer Reviews
Was Useful - Now A Disappointment
by CaliPrepper

I used to rely on the previous version as a (reliable) method of tracking time with clients. I shared its name with colleagues, and never looked for an alternative. It was/is a bit in the dark ages, and needed some updates for cloud support, system integration, etc. Instead of a paid upgrade, we get this: another once-decent app that tried to fly too close to the sun, and be something it’s not.

I am a software architect and I understand the desire for a continuous trickle of profit for an app vs initial purchase spikes, but this is not the way to do it; this is not the app to do it. This is not Adobe or some high-end music instrumentation library where a subscription can be logical depending on usage. This is a basic time tracker that has a few evernote-esque additions and is trying to be more than it needs to be.

If the developer needs more money, charge more for the app up front. If anyone goes for this subscription model, that’s their prerogative. I think I’ll end up writing my own if I dont find any alternatives (and if so, charge a reasonable fee and keep it streamlined for its purpose).

Always available at my fingertips
by Axerickson

The short here is that I can track time in a way that fits my personal workflow without having to add a lot of new process to my day. For me it’s a godsend. Just click and go. Timesheets are made really straightforward now, and I don’t have to remember back at the end of the day about what I did. In the end, it saves me time and frustration. That’s worth $60/year - or less than $6/month. I’ll spend that on 2 starbucks in two days.

Sad Day For This app
by JerryOdd

Why is this a subscription based time tracking app? WHY? I’ve used your old app for years and it has done it’s job perfectly. I only had to purchase it once. This cost way too much just for time tracking. Come out with a pro version for a one time fee.

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:

- Safari- Chrome & Chromium- Mail- Preview

- iWork- MS Office- OpenOffice & LibreOffice- Scrivener- Evernote

- Photoshop- Acorn

- Finder- Parallels Desktop (app name and window title of Windows apps in Coherence mode are tracked)

- Xcode- Coda- TextWrangler & BBEdit- TextMate- Terminal

- 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!"

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:

- Safari- Chrome & Chromium- Mail- Preview

- iWork- MS Office- OpenOffice & LibreOffice- Scrivener- Evernote

- Photoshop- Acorn

- Finder- Parallels Desktop (app name and window title of Windows apps in Coherence mode are tracked)

- Xcode- Coda- TextWrangler & BBEdit- TextMate- Terminal

- 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!"

Exactly what I need to time and track reoccuring daily tasks
by BobbyD419

First let’s state the obvious it is a larger than expected price tag HOWEVER! This is the only app I found that does exactly what I need to capture the time I spend on reoccuring business as usual daily tasks. I don’t necessarily believe it will be able to capture the exact reason for a special cause such as an increase in time spent on one project over another. I do expect that if I or my team make a meaningful impact on the time it takes to complete a daily routine task then this tool will accurately capture that change. As well I expect that if we eliminate certain tasks then certainly the app will show the overall bottom line impact on information processing or spreadsheet maintenance. Or if I start investing more time in one tool over another then this will provide the evidence rather than just the output files. Great app, very user friendly. I really wish my organization offered something exactly like this for every employee ;)

Easy to use, responsive developer, great results.
by Jacques2460

I’ve been using Timing for a couple years now, to track my billable hours as a consultant. It does a stellar job of giving me a granular tracking of everything I do, either internally or for billing purposes. It’s also great that it can exclude nonwork activities taken right in the middle of work activities and allocate them properly.

Update Aug 2017: The new version is an amazing upgrade. The developer has completely rebuilt the software, making it super useful for me, a consultant. It’s not a 99 cent software, but I’m not a 99 cent consultant either! Well worth every bit of the cost - saves me a huge amount of time and frustration, allows me to bill for what I do. Pays for itself. Wonderful!

Great tool for tracking activity
by annieoadams

Even if you use job tracking software, I recommend this app. WHY? sometimes one fails to log off a job and this keeps me straight and my clients happy. Bravo!
