Time tasks from the menu bar
Time-tracking apps need to do the following well: track time (obviously); group tasks into projects; be efficient in demanding your time; and enable you to get your data out to later deal with invoicing.
For the most part, this app fares well. It sits in the menu bar, and it’s simple to add projects with tasks to the app’s main window. Sort orders can be changed, levels of priorities can be set, and the timer can be displayed in the menu bar.
But some useful functions are hidden. Only through hrmacapp.com/help do you realise keyboard shortcuts exist (although, the developer recommends an Automator service for a shortcut to bring the app to the front), and touches such as dragging a task to access priority buttons are found almost by accident. Export is clunky, even if the CSV you get is nicely structured.
For free, we shouldn’t moan, but this app is only good when it should be great. Craig Grannell
There are some nice ideas in this time tracker, but it needs a bit more polish to be a great product.
