Time Tracking Sucks.
Deal With It.
Or Use Timing.
Stop guessing how you spend your time,
and focus on doing your best work instead.
Timing observes how you use your Mac and categorizes your activities.
You see how you spent your time and how productive you were,
and the timeline shows when you did what.
It even automatically recognizes blocks of time that belong together!
Need to enter time manually? Timing supports that, too —
with the added benefit of tracking when your productivity is highest.
And if you need to bill clients or create timesheets,
Timing lets you generate great reports.

“Timing 2 does a brilliant job of grouping tasks together and automatically assigning "keywords" to add new tasks to groups. [...] As a result, you can easily see what activities you spent the most time on – and possibly realize that you're not focusing on what you thought you were. [...] It makes it easy to group activities and reap the benefits of manual time tracking with the ease of automation.”
“At the end of a day, you can see how everything has gone: what apps you used, what documents, what websites and always how long you spent in each. If you want to, you can go through the list and assign everything to projects.
It's detailed enough that it will track different email threads in Mail and rather than saying you spent five hours using Safari, it will see that ten minutes was on your online banking and the rest was Facebook.”
“Bottom line: When compared to other time tracking services that charge per month, I think Timing 2 is good value, and for me personally, the application-level tracking fits much better into my workflow. Recommended.”
“Over the last 30 years of using a Mac I’ve tried a plethora of different time tracking applications, and without a doubt, Timing is my favorite one.
I love that it’s unobtrusive (if you want it to be) yet very detailed in it’s collection of data about what apps and documents you are using. I love that I don’t have to “start tracking” like so many other time tracking apps make you do.”
“Timing is really unobtrusive, it just works, in the background. No hassle with manual input of data, no allocating to projects, it just records all my work. And when you need to know what you’ve done it’s there, all my hours, by project, by period.
Really valuable for me, being self employed and doing a ton of things per day, in the evening, in the weekends. Now I can make my hours billable.”
“Wow! I can’t get over much time this saves me. I don’t have to set anything up before I begin working on a project. I can FINISH a project and take less than 1 minute (after it’s completed) to drag all the specified folder and files and websites into the Timing project and Wham! I have an accurate total number of hours spent actively working on the project.”
“This is an amazing tool to control and backtrack the usage of the programs you use. Goodbye procrastination!! This app is so well programmed too! Little details that other programmers leave behind is absolutely not a concern here.”
“Before Timing, we were using manual timesheet tools, and we were always forgetting to start or stop it. Now with Timing our work days have become more efficient, more productive and very less stressful, with timesheets ten times more precise. So thank you for that!”
No more start/stop timers.
No more worrying about where all that time went.
Timing's smart timeline shows you exactly what you did at any given time, including which app, document or website you were using.
And it even makes suggestions for blocks of time that belong together — just click the '+' button to assign a whole block at once!
This lets you assign many hours of tracked time in just a few seconds.
It even works for times when you didn't use your Mac, so you can easily add meetings!
Assign time via drag-and-drop.
Timing already comes with several pre-defined categories. But when that's not enough, simply drag and drop activities to assign them. It doesn't get any more intuitive than this.
Got lots of calendar events?
Timing tracks those, too!
Timing shows meetings and other calendar events right on the timeline, letting you assign and bill them with just two clicks.
And if you want to track time on the go, just create a calendar event for that on your iPhone and Timing will import it.
This is also great for comparing how you planned your schedule vs. what you actually did.
Spend less time tracking.
And more time working.
Everything in Timing is built to help you get the job done super quickly, saving you lots of time in the process.
For example, we even optimized the date picker to require as few clicks as possible.
And thanks to its extensible rules system, almost all activities are automatically categorized — simply ⌥-drag an activity to permanently assign it to a task.
Over time, Timing will save you hours of manual categorization effort, not to mention all the time you'd normally spend starting and stopping manual timers. That's the magic of an automatic time tracking app.
Did something off your Mac?
Timing has you covered!
If you need to track other activities, such as phone calls or meetings, simply add them manually.
Timing can even automatically ask you what you did when you return to your desk!
Plus, it can always show you how productive you are right in the status bar, to help you stay on track.
No matter how your clients need you to report your time,
Timing can do it.
Freelancers and contractors will love its timesheets, but Timing's smart reporting capabilities benefit everyone else, too.
