Ooo! Iā€™m glad to find this!
I used to use TimeLog for my project tracking and had a very similar activity-tracking feature that worked quite well but, unfortunately, the feature was removed when the app evolved into its successor, Timings.

Definitely looking forward to testing this one out! :)

Not an unstable app but so green it's unusable, at least for me. Needs better/some documentation and a lot of work. Nice idea, bit invasive but if you like that kind of thing this could be extremely useful.

Alpha version for sure so guinea pigs enjoy. Not a bad idea posting here on macupdate to get users to test it but damn... the first version posted here had labels missing on nearly everything. Not going to try this guy out, once everything works it will be nice though so if you like the concept keep your eye on it.

Thanks for you comment. I do agree with you the first version was a bit rough UI-wise :-) However, functionality-wise it should be rather complete now - I used it extensively for couple of months before the release. And I did a lot of UI clean up since then. This app is being actively developed, with updates released almost every day via built-in update mechanism (the web site may not have the latest release)

Regarding the invasiveness of the app; there are two modes of the operation, automatic and manual. In the automatic mode the app will 'record' history automatically. This is similar to the way web history works, you just end up with long journal of activities. In the manual mode, it is up to the user to say 'remember' this - kind of similar to bookmarking. With both approaches it is always the user that is in control. You can setup filters to record only certain applications or even limit recording to one space. Anything you record you see and have full control over - there is nothing recorded behind your back.


Thanks for the response. I'll have to try one of the later versions out. It is a great idea and seems to do a lot but that first release was very very rough to use so I kind of gave up on it. Glad to see your responsive and hope this turns into a very useful app! Good luck, I'll post some feedback on the latest release.
