19 Thoughts to “10 Best Time Tracking Apps You Should Not Miss!”

  1. Hi,

    I would also like to draw your attention to our recently re-released time and project tracking app Yanomo. Our approach is slightly different than most in that we have introduced “Team-sourcing” (crowd-sourcing within your team). This has shown to result in very accurate estimations in how much work is left on a project/phase/task. So not only can you quickly track your hours from your personal calendar, you’ll also have a real-time overview of how your whole team thinks your projects are progressing.

    We’d love to know what the community thinks so we can keep improving our app.

    Looking forward to your comments.
    Kind regards,
    Joost Schouten

    1. Hi Joost Schouten,

      I just checked your product and created an account to use your application for review. At first look it’s a nice time tracking and project management tool and after trying I will write a review for it.

      Thanks for letting me know such a great tool.

  2. Thanks for the kind 1DayLater mention – much appreciated. I hope you’re enjoying using our service! We are really looking forward to unveiling some of our new features over the coming months.
    Cheers again,
    Managing Director

  3. Paul,
    Welcome Paul, I’ve used 1DayLater and it’s a nice tool but a bit of complex. I’ve faced some minor difficulty in curve visualization which didn’t updated frequently. Can you please check this out?

    Welcome Manish and thanks for reading my blog. I’ll test Invoicera soon and add my comments because I’ve got many good news about Invoicera. Till then have a nice time.

    Wow, you guys have created a great tool. I’ve used it to test and may start using it officially as my research completes. Thanks for introducing such a great tool to us.

    Thanks Reetha for suggesting this valuable time tracking app. I’ll soon check it out and will let you know about my experiences.

    1. You are most welcome Rilwis, yeh I agree because I’m too using Paymo and also used Freshbook in past but later I started using invoice bubble because it’s free and no restrictions for no. of clients and invoices are there plus I can upload my own logo in it.

  4. I also uses time tracker recommended by Chris (http://onepageonly.net) and I have to admit I fell in love with it at the very first view!
    I just click on start/ stop and it does the rest. I may enjoy my work, not worrying about any time issues (and billing, which I don’t fancy at all).

  5. Good blog list and I already use one of this time tracking apps and it is RescueTime. It really helps me to organize my work priorities in my daily routine. It also helps me on how to spend time efficiently with less effort and more work has been done. In addition to those tools mentioned above, ( http://www.timedoctor.com/blog/2010/07/25/how-is-time-doctor-different-than-rescue-time ) this article also discuss comparative reports on time tracking applications.

  6. Downloaded PayMo after your excellent review. Deleted it again after 15 mins of trying to set up an account. To hard! Why do I need a domain name (not explained even after the rejection of my early 20+ attempts)? Also kept getting the field cleared after every attempt – fantastic – I love re-entering my password (twice) 21 times (=42 times) – NOT. Thus is just dumb guys. Needs to be simpler – I am too busy for this.

    1. Hi Mark, there may be some issue but I haven’t had any problem while installing it. When you sign up they provide you a customized sign in page with customized domain name which you can change like “xyz.paymo.biz”. Of course gives some errors when pc restart and we want to log in but it repeats it hardly 3 times that is you just need to press ENTER thrice and it starts. You may have some fireball or antivirus setting issue. Can you let me know your problem in detail?

  7. Hi there.
    Just come across your blog and it’s great. I do have a question. I am trying to find a time tracking system so that I can track all of my teams work. Some staff will work on the same client so I am after a system where I can run a report that will show which staff have worked on a client. I need to be able to run a report that shows how much work is done on a client file

    I also want to be able to run a weekly time sheet for each staff member. Do you know of a time tracking sheet that has these functions.

    Cheers Nat
