Timing is the best way to keep track of the time you spend with your Mac. Find out where your time goes - without ever having to start a timer again!

Timing automatically tracks which documents you are editing, which applications you use, and which websites you visit. 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 https://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.

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.

Highly recommended. The only thing they might want to improve upon is a tour at the beginning to get the most out of the product - it feels a lot like it's left to the user to figure out the most powerful way to use the product."

"I've just downloaded Timing again. After trailing numerous other apps that all charge you monthly, I just wasn't getting anything materially better (in most cases it was worse) functionality. Timing was the first and now hopefully the last."
