Won­der­ing where the time goes? This will help you keep track.

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

Do you ever look up and won­der where the time has gone? Save My Time wants to help you fig­ure it all out. This time tracker helps you get an in­ven­tory of your hours and a sense of your work­life bal­ance.

It works by ask­ing you ev­ery so of­ten — at in­ter­vals of your choos­ing — what you did in the most re­cent block of time. The op­tions ap­pear in a grid on your lock screen, so you can log your ac­tiv­ity with one tap. You can also make your own ac­tiv­i­ties — e.g. data en­try, ex­er­cise, what­ever you want — to suit your needs and cat­e­go­rize each ac­tiv­ity as a “work” or “life” ac­tiv­ity.

At the end of the day, you get a chart show­ing you how long you spent on each ac­tiv­ity and an es­ti­mate of how much time you spent work­ing and how long you spent do­ing other stuff.

The app takes a lit­tle time to set up, and it can be hard to get into the habit of track­ing your time at all — after all, if it were easy you prob­a­bly wouldn’t want the app.
