Minimalist time tracker (beta).

Overview

Minco is a lightweight application for tracking your daily invested work time on your Mac.

Features
  • Capturing work-times is only a click away with Minco. Ready to work, Minco sits in your menu bar and is always at your fingertips to start tracking your time. The seamless integration with OS X allows you to easily create new work-times in a magnificent way.
  • Use existing Reminder, Calendar Events, or your current location and start tracking your work-time. With Additions, Minco offers you a smart way to integrate with applications and services on your Mac. Ad hoc work-times are created on the fly and are automatically grouped within a context.
  • Use Extensions, a configurable output adapter, to bring your records into the right format. There is a vast number of settings you can use to export your data. Minco allows you to create multiple extensions to use them for manual and automatic immediate real-time export.

Time tracking on OS X has never been easier or more flexible.

This is a fantastic add-on for anyone already using an iCal-compatible task management system (such as Things.app) and missing a time tracking utility. It reads iCal data, so you don't have to enter anything - simply import the To Do items of your choice and start tracking time. Despite its minimal interface, Minco is highly customizable. Time records, for example, can be exported to several formats, and each of those formats allows for detailed settings of how and what to export. Added bonus: compared to most time tracking utilities (trust me, i've seen them all), it's using very little resources, which is nice for any app running almost all day. Minco is not entirely free of minor flaws - its panel may not always fade out when it should, and spotting the selected To Do in the dropdown list could be easier. And there is one feature i'd like to see added: the ability to add and edit time records manually within Minco. Considering it's currently in beta, i'm not going to let those lamentations taint my rating. Minco is next to perfect.

The second installment is a major rewrite that I appreciate in every aspects. UI is revamped and looks just gorgeous on Yosemite. Still in beta and some tweaks here and there are needed, but is really usable and soo far I had no crashes or data loss. I guess the developer had to drop from Apple Store due to the many restrictions with the sandbox, but I prefer better in the old way. I wish I can have the same on mobile and tablet, that would be absolutely perfect.

Great product for easy time tracking! It's simple to use, interacs pretty well with iCal and let's you concentrate on your work. It is stable but since it is a very young app, a couple of sporadic bugs happen with the options at moment. And the interface doesn’t disappear fast enough, I have to clic the icon to fasten the process. It's now my everyday companion. I love it!

Looks nice at first but it has some flaws so I can't work with it (at the moment). Some problems I encountered: • Tasks are deleted after restart • iCal integration doesn't work properly, (and what if I don't want any iCal integration at all?) • Interface needs work: -> edit task: selection overlays TextField frame, -> making the task editing panel semi transparent isn't a very good idea, can't read anything with the "right" things in the background -> missing button for adding tasks, -> timer being shown in the menu bar is important Maybe it will evolve ...

I registered for MacUpdate just to write this review. Why? Because I've been using minco daily for over a year (I'm a professional IT consultant), and it 'just' integrates (seamlessly) with Things and iCal. Plus it's inconspicuously easy to use. I love this software for the same reason that I love Mac.

I use it everyday and I found it the only "non invasive" "mac style" app that "just works". About bugs/glitches, I believe, from another happy Apple Developer, that they are part of a regular path to find the perfection. Bravo again!

I have no idea what kind of problems Kcarter is having or is even talking and it's apparent neither does he. I have no crashing or any other problems he has described. This program works as advertised.

I have chosen not to purchase. App crashes. You can not revisit closed entries to edit, update time, or continue to track time. Labeling is buggy.

If you have problems with Minco on your Mac did you consider to post your comment under trouble shooting or to send us a mail that we can help you. Never heard that Minco crush and that labeling is buggy ?

Everything about this program works great except for one big thing: The timer doesn't tick in the menu item. I can see it logging time properly when I look at the Get Info screen, and it displays the correct time when publishing completed items to iCal. But the menu item itself stays locked at 00:00:00. Are there any known conflicts with other menu items? Posting a screenshot to show what I use: http://grab.by/grabs/132467ef1f416692cb72e26894a6d7c2.png

Meant to post this under Troubleshooting but can't find a way to edit/move it. Sorry about that.

Hi Billyok, I think this is a specific problem on your Mac. Try to start over by removing the file/folder ~/Library/Application Support/Minco ~/Library/Preferences/com.celmaro.minco.plist If this will not help please send me a mail that we can investigate the problem. Thanks Marc

Thanks Marc -- it worked. I appreciate the support. One thing I did notice (as least on my side) is that the timer seems to still stay at 0 when I set the scope to Week (the others all work fine). It's no big deal to me with my current setup, but just FYI. Great piece of software -- had it a day and even with the earlier issues it's already proved very useful.

Well, I had high hopes for this little gem, but unfortunately, I don't think it is quite ready for the big time, yet. It has a lot of promise, but as of right now, it feels a little ... beta still. I am going to keep my eyes on this one. Unfortunately, it is not to the point where I can implement it into my workflow ... sham really. Pros: Price; Syncing with iCal is great, especially if you have another to do app like Things; Interface is out of the way; ability to edit task right there in their interface is great. Cons: Editing time is real buggy; interface design is a little overdone; task ordering changes even if you have not changed the ordering; there is no field to manually edit time, just the little clock interface which is not "to the point". Summary: I am waiting until a couple of more revisions until I implement this, but I will keep my eye on this little app. For the price though, it is a good deal.

I have contacted the developer about the edit time problem and here is what he said: _ _ _ Thanks for your feedback. If you have just stopped a previous work time Minco allows only to set the time back to the end of the previous. This should avoid overlapping work times. I will consider to extend the edit work time functionality of Minco in future versions but currently it's not planned. Best regards _ _ _ Well, I have to say that the developer is really nice and replied quickly. I have dealt with them in the past with another app, and they were great with their support. Unfortunately, this is a deal breaker as I need to be able to edit my time freely. BUT, I have to give it to the developer for being supportive of his products and being really nice. [Cerebrl]
