I've been using this for a while now and overall, I really like it. I find I'm billing more accurately which directly translates into a boost for my bank balance. It's pretty straightforward and easy to learn. I tested several and this one is the best for the price. I often have several clients' task windows open during the day. I pause one while I work on another; then pause it to go back or to a different one. Cool feature and one I grew accustomed to very quickly. The developer tries to be responsive, but sometimes updates are slow to happen. I think he (they?) pays attention to the boards and updates *do* happen. There are, however, still some things that make it difficult for me to give it the five-star rating I know is possible. Window size and placement should be remembered, but aren't. Can't enter times into fields; must use up/down arrows. This is really slow. I need this function as I record hours worked out of my office (e.g., not on the timer). No way to reorder line items. This is crucial for me. No way to get out of Preferences without saving (okay button only), and I don't always want to save. In fact, the three standard buttons (close, minimize & zoom) are missing from several windows. No way to customize the invoice or even make sure my logo isn't stretched out of recognition. Creating reports is a bit cumbersome, but at least they're there. They're just not very intuitive. I don't use it for invoicing since I can't customize the form and already have an okay system set up in FileMaker. I'd reconsider if I could manage the layout. That said, let me reiterate that I really like this software for the most part and certainly recommend it for small businesses and individuals.

The software is one of the few remaining non-cloud-based invoicing programs. It allows for timed sessions, fixed rate work, and separately accounts for expenses. The software provider was quick to respond to my questions which inspired confidence! One thing that is needed is more customization of the invoices. While you can add a graphic at the top, it is not reproduced with very high quality. For one client, I really need to be able to place my Company Information at the very top, not at the bottom. I have manually migrated from the disintegrating MacFreelance and I am looking forward to easy accounting come year end.

Downloaded this app because I've been looking for an invoicing solution that enables me to sync via dropbox so I can keep track of time spend on a project in the office and on the road. TaskTime looked promising and I took it for a spin. Alas, the invoicing itself is not as flexible as I would like it to be (in terms of categories, layout, and design). I contacted the developer about the shortcomings for me, and within 24 hours he came up with some improvements along the lines of what I'm looking for (assigning categories to sessions). AMAZING! We went back and forth a couple more times, with equally fast turnaround on Terry's (the developer's) part. Although invoicing is still not quite what I'd like it to be, it's getting there, and I will certainly keep my eye on this app.( Just because it doesn't work for me, though doesn't mean it won't work for you ;) I just had to drop a note and comment on the fact that this app has a very responsive developer behind it. I don't want to abuse the rating system (hence, I'm leaving only a comment), but this dev deserves five stars.

Every thing’s fine except the update, just like others said, it took so long to happen; and I can only use the up and down button which is so slow. I hope something can be done on that.

This version appears to be 10.7 and upwards only, not 10.6. The developer's site says nothing about system requirements. The link above under 'more' to download users' guide gives a 404 page not found. Hmmm....

I like the interface and the Dropbox integration. There's only a few things that I like more on OfficeTime (which I've tried before): the ability to display current task time in the menu bar, and in the main window (it actually displays in the counter, but not in the task row until you click stop — ok it's not a big problem, but why not displaying it there too? ;-) I have to try it more, but for less than half the price of OfficeTime, it's really doing what I need. (and hail to the dev for not asking 19.99$ instead of 20$, it rests my eyes and shows respect to the customer ;-)

I really like the look of this at first. The ability to add expenses to tasks is perfect for me so this was a huge plus. However there is one major thing that will stop me from using in it's current state. As someone who changes between 10-15 projects per day the little play/stop windows are just not going to work. If you could use a menubar icon like many other similar apps, so I can quickly switch between jobs without leaving the app I am in, I would be sold!

I've used TaskTime for several years now and it gets better with every revision. This most recent (5.01) is great--especially adding direct numerical entry of start/end times and time spent. The developer is very responsive!

I was excited to check this out, as I'm starting a photography business where I'll be billing post production editing work by the hour. Unfortunately I have to agree with an earlier poster that the lack of an option to use the mail client of my choice (ie: Apple Mail) is a deal killer. This has some nice features though, and the price is right. I don't need a time billing app right away, just researching right now, so maybe that will be corrected soon and I can consider this again.

Just trying this out and impressed with interface and features. But being form the UK the date format in the main project window is still showing the US date format (next to Begun, In progress, etc dropdown). Plus even though the currency was changed in preferences, the project window retains the $ 3 times at the bottom - Rate, Time Charges and Grand Total Owing. Apart from these minor niggles, looks not too bad!

Straightforward and effective. However, when I click the little "mail invoice" button, it tries to fire up MS Entourage instead of OS X Mail(!). This seems kinda silly since all Mac users have OS X Mail, but a smaller percentage own/use Entourage. I mean if you're going to limit mailing PDF versions of an invoice from within the billing application to a single mail application, why on earth did you choose Entourage?!

New version looks nice, would like to see ability to add several other payments other than just the credit option....have several "pay a little here, a little there" customers as the project continues....Other thing I noticed is the numbers don't line up flush in the total column (at first open of update cut off part of the second t and the "al" in total. Other than that wish, I love the program!!!!! Easy, intuitive, streamlined.....

For me simply the best task/time billing app. for the Mac. Works perfectly, looks beautiful and integrates with addressbook. Also a very responsive and helpfull developer. I had an issue with my Swedish currency, mailed the developer about it-at that time I hadn't even paid for the app.- and within the our I got a mail back and in this new release he has fixed it! Thank you Terry!

TaskTime is a great timer/billing utility. I would reccommend this program to anyone with simple billing needs: keeps track of time spent on projects at a specific monetary rate. It gets better with each new version.

Really good program for small businesses, and an enthusiastic developer who welcomes feedback. I bought earlier version in December 2004 and sent him a list of features I thought should be included: new fields for invoice, automatic or manual invoice numbering, different currencies for projects, ability to have flat fee as well as pro rata etc etc. One month later those were included. I evaluated ibiz, customertracker and other similar programs. This was the most flexible, least restrictive and cheapest. Still needs a more editable invoice configuration but I suspect that is to come.

the clients part should be integrated with Apple's Address Book program. Please add an 'open recent' feature to the file menu. icon is stretched, looks bad. i can't actually type in the name field in the prefs dialog to add clients, only when i press the plus button can i do this, this is a problem. app's font throughout should be the system font , Lucida Grande, 12pt. read Apple's Aqua Interface and Humane (Human) Interface guidelines. this app is far from standards. you got the price right.

Works great. Just what I needed to keep track of my web design clients. Very good price of $10. No problems yet with the trial version. I plan to purchase this for sure! Good job.
