Discover how you spend time on your Mac.

Overview

Timing is the best way to keep track of the time you spend with your Mac. Find out where your time goes -- without ever having to start a timer again! Timing automatically tracks which documents you are editing, which applications you use, and the domains of the websites you visit. You'll never have to worry about forgetting to start or stop a timer again -- there are none! It's all done in the background! After tracking, just drag and drop activities into projects. Some general categories like "Web Browsing", "Office", and "Games" have already been prepared for you, but you can customize them any way you like!

Review this week's activities with just one click! Sophisticated graphs show you how you spent your time each day and which projects consumed most of your time.

Some of the applications supported by Timing:

  • Safari
  • Chrome and Chromium
  • Opera
  • Mail
  • Preview
  • Photoshop (and probably the rest of the Adobe Creative Suite)
  • Acorn
  • iWork
  • MS Office
  • LibreOffice
  • Evernote
  • TeXShop
  • Finder
  • Terminal
  • GitX
  • Xcode (3 and 4)
  • Coda
  • TextWrangler and BBEdit
  • Smultron and Fraise
  • Kod
  • MacVim and AquaMacs
  • TextEdit
  • Dashcode
  • QuickTime Player
  • VLC Player

What's new in Timing

Version 2019.4:
  • Timing will now show Google and DuckDuckGo search queries, Google Docs and YouTube videos in the "Paths" card on the "Review" screen.
  • You can now duplicate projects by right-clicking them, including their title, color, rules and sub-projects. This is very useful for e.g. creating a "Client template" that you simply duplicate for every new client.
  • Color schemes for projects: Top-level projects can now be created with light, dark or very dark colors, selectable on the "Advanced" preference pane. In addition, sub-projects will now be created with colors similar to the parent project’s, with additional options for identical or rainbow colors.
  • You can now unclutter the "Keywords" card on the "Review" screen: Right-click a keyword, then click "Hide keyword".
  • You can now click a "Task Stopped" notification to immediately edit the task that was stopped.
  • Updated/added path/URL tracking for Slack, Notion, BBEdit, Firefox 71, and WhatsApp.
  • Improvement: Timing no longer immediately shows the task title auto-complete window when editing an existing task, letting you more easily access the task’s time and notes.
  • Improved the reliability of determining which calendars to show on the timeline in a few rare cases.
  • Bugfix: Fixed a small bug when using the "fractional hours" format in JSON reports.

Before buying make sure you understand the long-term cost → https://timingapp.com/pricing. If you buy the expert version, it is going to cost you $99 up-front and then $50 per year. This is an anti-customer pricing model—-buyer beware

Fantastic app. Easy to use, tracks everything, doesn't slow down other processes, very good customer support. I wouldn't be without it--it lets me track client time (I'm a freelancer) without turning on/off and manual timer (and forgetting half the time). I also use it to figure out what my most productive tasks/times are so I can maximize my productivity. Five stars!

It must be good if you've only visited MacUpdate once and that was to leave a 5 star rating for this app /sarcasm

This app is a game changer for my consulting job. I'm terrible at keeping track of how I spend my time switching between 5-10 clients in a day, but Timing just does it for me! The UI is super intuitive... Beautiful app!

The easiest to use, least time consuming and most accurate time tracking app out there .- and it's super affordable. I have used Office Time, Toggl, Timecamp and Timely each for years and Timing is light years ahead of these other apps. Don't waste your time tracking time, get Timing and get it sorted today.

Great timer. German quality. Has the simple features I need for freelancing, and a lot more if you really want to automate the way you track your time. I bought the "Productivity" version.

Great app. Very polished, obviously made with love and craftsmanship. If you have problems procrastinating, this app is a must have. I am not superhuman, I get distracted while working, and that costs me money and career prospects. This app is an elegant self-accountability solution that reliably puts me back on track. It's worth every cent.

Hi Bob,

Daniel here, the developer of Timing. Just a quick heads-up that you can use Timing indefinitely after purchasing it. The $49 upgrade after one year is optional and only required to get new updates to Timing and use our sync service for another year. Developing the app on an ongoing basis and keeping our sync service running requires a significant investment from our side, and those paid upgrades ensure that we can "keep the lights running".

This also benefits you, the customer, in the long term: The alternative would be to purchase an app now that would be discontinued after a few years because further development could not be funded, which would not be in your interest, either. And that outcome is exactly what our pricing model avoids.

Best Regards,
Daniel Alm

Daniel, you could make sync webdav dependent like either Tyme 2 or Timelime and there's no reason consumers would have to pay you $50/year to use your server. It's kind of extortion isn't it?

@Uncoy, Timing also offers a web app and API (https://timingapp.com/blog/timing-2019-2-web-app-api-archiving-projects-and-more/). This would not be possible with a WebDAV server, and we do not have the resources to maintain a second sync option that most people probably would not even want to use. That does not mean we are guilty of "extortion"; please mind your words.
