I not too sure why others have not reviewed this app, but I guess I will be the first. On the Job (OTJ) is a pretty functional piece of software. The organisation of the task timing is nicely done. You have clients, and under each client, you have projects. Within these projects you have jobs, or tasks. Each job has a title and notes as well as the times in which you worked on the job. It has a list of all the dates and starting times you activated the timer for that particular job. You can invoice 3 different filters -- Invoice this Job, this Client or All Jobs. Then you set the date range. The invoices are okay. You can choose from templates and customize them if you want. This is where the app breaks down a little. The customization is a little awkward and hard to get "just right", so if you are a perfectionist, good luck getting exactly what you want out of them. But, overall you can get a nice invoice to send to you client. Another cool feature is the menu bar icon which you can start and stop timers for any of your jobs. The app has a great inactivity monitor which if inactive for too long it warns you and gives you a choice to stop and remove time or continue. The one thing it misses that I would like is a pause. Pros: Clean interface, nice organization, inactivity monitor, menu bar control and it hasn't crashed on me yet (I have been using this for months). Cons: Invoice "designer" is a bit awkward and hard to get "just right"; no pause job, just stop job and I would like, but don't need, a notes section for the different times (nice if you want to leave yourself a note from where you left off). Summary: A good solid and stable app that does exactly what you need and quite a bit of what you want. It is a crucial piece within my workflow. [Cerebrl]

Is anybody using On The Job 3.0.9 with macOS High Sierra and can confirm that it runs in High Sierra without problems?

I was using 3.0.9 on High Sierra and now I’m using it even on Mojave - it’s working.

I have a tiny architecture practice and have been using On The Job for only two months. For my minimalist needs, it has been working very well. It is fast, simple, and produces a professional looking invoice. It is anti-bloatware to be sure. I asked the developer a couple of questions and got a response in a couple of days. I suggested a refinement to the app allowing individual timing sessions for a single task to show up on an invoice. This suggestion was positively accepted by the developer. So far, so good!

Feel very let down by this developer. No updates in ages, now it continually crashes in El Capitan, and emails to the support address are ignored. I think we can now call this abandonware. My advice is spend your $40 elsewhere.

If you look at their twitter account, it is still being developed and supported. They may be having to rebuild the app and that could be what is taking so much time. Who knows but they are still working on it from what they say.

Macheritage: I've already looked... it's been 18 months since their last tweet! That was to announce a maintenance release for Mavericks compatibility. I hardly think that constitutes 'still being developed'.

Pubsta, if you look at their Twitter replies, you will see that they are very active in communicating back to their customers. The last one being 15 hours ago, as of this posting.

I'm using 3.0.9 in latest os Sierra. It's not crashing for me. What tools are you using when it crashes?

Somehow all the recent posts about this being Abandon-Ware aren't here now. This developer has continued to claim that he will keep development going, but the only revision to the software in about the last 2 years have been a Mavericks update. Same story with another of Stunt's software, Overflow. Both are nice apps, but Overflow could use some tweaks, and On the Job needs some serious revisions for a freelancer's use. I recommend looking elsewhere.

Couldn't agree more. What a shame, it's actually quite a nice app, but no updates whatsoever despite all promises.

Not only have posts disappeared from here (Thanks, MacUpdate! Am I allowed to call this censoring?), but also have the support forums from the Stuntsoftware website disappeared. Apparently the developer did not like the questions anymore, and MacUpdate was only all too willing to help.

However, although missing any significant update since many years On the Job is still working even in OS X 10.10. That's better than nothing.

I've been using this for over a year now. As a freelancer for over 15 years, I've used a small handful of time tracking solutions. So far this is the best I've found, and I'm happy to have it. It's good!

This is not a time tracking solution. You can create jobs, keep how much time you've spent on those and create invoices. Unfortunately the time tracking itself is very cumbersome.

I've found the time tracking to work as expected. I just select what I'm working on in my menubar and see the green icon when it's running. I also like how it can deduct time if it detects that I've bee idle on the machine for an extended period of time. I'm curious what you find cumbersome about it? If you can think of a better way to do it, it'd be appreciated!

The time tracking aspect is annoying. As far as I can see you cannot start a new timed activity from the menu bar - you can only append existing items. Makes no sense.

I am right now testing On The Job extensively. It is an interesting, potentially very good application for the time tracking and billing needs of freelancers with many concurrent jobs like me. However, it certainly needs some more work and I am not sure whether Stunt Software is really working on this application. It took them more than two years to move from version 3.0.3 to version 3.0.6; one of the application's biggest problems (creating reports) seems to get not addressed; the latest entry in the blog on their website is from July 2011 (announcing the upcoming release of OS X 10.7); their support forum is full of topics with problems and requests and not much seems to happen (except getting the status "assigned). It would be great it Stunt Software could convince me and others that they are indeed working on this software! After all, $40 is not exactly cheap - a software like this deserves active development.

A good app, easy to learn and good service. It finally has been updated but there are still some issues that I would like to see, such as a better invoice editor. I will continue to veal new version and update later.

I agree, the invoice editor is sorely lacking and clumsy. I hate that the PAID stamp is non-editable and it just randomly stamps it wherever it feels like. Also adding/editing logos is cumbersome. I like most everything about On The Job except the invoicing and also editing times for work is cumbersome as well.
