If time is money to you then you already have a way to track the time you spend on tasks and projects, either for yourself or clients. If clients pay you for work then tracking time needs to be automated for accuracy.
Check out Tyme. It’s a Mac time tracker app that’s affordable, rather straightforward to setup and use, but comes with a long list of useful options. And one that Tyme doesn’t have but needs.
First, it’s easy to sync projects and tracked time between Macs by using iCloud. Second, everything you need in Type is a click away in the Mac’s Menubar so it’s accessible from within any app.
Third, global hotkeys start and stop tasks with ease. You won’t even need to use the mouse or trackpad or move your fingers from the keyboard. Tyme stacks projects and tasks so you can easily see status and keep the clock rolling.
For the currently timed project or task Tyme displays the running time and the daily total within the Menubar so a quick glance gets you up to speed on status.
Tyme can round time automatically, and it works on your Mac even when it’s not connected to the internet. Statistics about tasks and projects and the time devoted to each are just a click or two away. Daily, weekly, and monthly stats look like these. Sweet, no?
Tyme lets you set deadlines and plan projects and tasks so the work fits the budget allotted. What Tyme does not do is create and send out invoices, but details can be saved and exported as PDF files, CSV files, or even HTML.
This is one of those elegant and sweet spot apps which looks good, works well, and doesn’t cost much. What’s missing? Other than invoices, there’s no iPhone or iPad version of Tyme.
