Timing 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)

What’s new in version 2022.1.2

Updated on Mar 30 2022

  • Over the past couple of months, we have received several reports of Timing no longer tracking detailed information in many apps. As far as we can tell, this is caused by a bug in macOS temporarily denying Timing the ability to track other apps, even when you have granted it permission to do so. This update includes a couple of mitigation's to reduce the impact of this issue, but we are still working to fully fix or at least work around it. In the meantime, if you are encountering this issue, please report it via https://timingapp.com/contact in as much detail as possible. Every bit of information can help us find a fix for this problem.
  • On the "Unified Activities" screen, Timing now shows "(Activities without detailed information)" for activities that it could not record a title or path for (e.g. in the case described above). We hope this helps avoid confusion about the elements below an app not adding up to the total shown on the app itself.
  • Fixed an issue where the timeline would show "No Data", even when data was present.
  • Re-added support for detailed tracking in Skype.
  • Fixed an issue with entry editors overlapping with the timeline, instead of being anchored below it.
  • Added support for creating team projects via AppleScript.
  • Improved the editing of date ranges for time entries not currently visible on the timeline.
  • Prevented call tracking false positives for several more apps.
  • Improved Timing's automatic cleaning of window titles.

I have to say that I agree with B-Tom's 04.29.2020 review below mine as well as a bunch of the others (well at least the positive ones). LOL, even if B-toms is a fake, at least it's an accurate fake. I am a self-employed sound designer and I have been relying on automated time trackers for at least the past decade. In that time, I've jumped across pretty much every time tracker for 'at least' a couple months past the free trial expiring to really get a fair shake out of it before I Junk it. I try to keep this mindset for most integrations-apps-etc. b.c I won't really improve anything if I'm not willing to adjust to an app's design as much as the dev. is willing to accommodate, or has already accommodated, my desired outcome of the service (ie, Muscle Hass to be torn before it can be grown). I had been a premium user of RescueTime b4 Timings because my main issue wasn't with knowing when I worked, but it was more of what I was doing while I was working so I could create more accurate invoices for clients and also use the detailed breakdowns of time to improve estimates for incoming projects. RescueTime had decent detail, But I feel like the auto capturing of my systems actions never felt completely reflected in an accurate way. But with timing it always feels right on the money. For me, the biggest Selling point is the intense amount of specificity I can get from the (meta)data. For instance I just opened the Timing app and for the past 10 minutes and 45 seconds I have been In the Google Chrome app on my home Mac Pro, at Path: https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/39766/timing#comments , With the title of the page/doc 'Timing for Mac: Free Download + Review [Latest Version] - Aaron (Aaron B (Personal))'. Also, the time is being logged as 'Personal' but tagged as overall productive. I mean, in a day, I can have three separate sessions that were being mixed, possibly even moving back and forth amongst all three, with all sessions being three separate clients. With the quick turnarounds in TV and film, If I'm dealing with multiple different companies and having to switch that quickly between session, (most importantly if I happen to be working hourly instead of at flat-rate) there's no way in hell that I'm going to give up even a second of billable hours when the expectation can potentially carry that much stress. I mean I don't want to sound too crass, but Timing's strict specificity benefits everyone involved, because no one is being overcharged, I'm not being underpaid, And none of those clients are getting inadvertently billed for that 8min & 32seconds I spent on YouTube watching 2 Tim Dillon videos. Also I'm not giving the app ANY training when I go to make an invoice reflecting this stuff. All I do in Timing is drag the session folders for the specific project and drop them onto/into the project/subproject i made for that client. I could be more specific, or potentially less specific depending on how detailed I had to be with my recordkeeping. I just had to chime in because I'm a big big fan of the app And if I were to have developed my own tracker, this would basically be what it is. Needed to add some insight re: the 'fake review' claims with a review that hopefully doesn't smell like the insincerity of payola. Then again, maybe the the claims from people saying that the reviews were "too good" Or the users don't have a lot of downloads were in-fact the ACTUAL 'fake review's' being posted by shills on behalf of the competition. :) But also I would be super suspect of advice or any recommendations by someone that isn't running a quick test query into their package managers first and just clicking download like some psycho. Bro dont even 'brew' SMH.

After looking at the 5-stars reviews, it's clear that many of them have 0 downloads (?) and only 1 post (??). And they look fake.

This is not a fake review. 5 stars are not enough. As a freelance designer I am jumping back and forth between multiple applications all-day. Timing keeps tracking my workflow across ALL applications. With rules you can customize, automatically include or exclude tracking for files, applications and website. It's so easy to set up. This a real game changer and I don't have to sort and categories activities immediately. I can easily lookup project activities at any time and provide in-depth time tracking documentation to my clients. I really appreciate that Timing does not require Third-Party cloud syncing. All data are kept locally. I haven't used their sync service. In short: It's a rock solid application (never experienced any crashes) with an intuitive and beautiful mac-like UI, fair pricing model and friendly support. Feature requests are taken seriously and implemented quickly in regular updates. I love it.

I was very close to buying this. But almost all reviews seem to be fake reviews: Users with a single post, a 5 star post for Timing. I'm also a consultant. But this scares me, so I will not recommend such developer.

I have used Timing for many years now, and it's one of my favorite applications. It has saved me so much time and effort in time-tracking for invoicing. I do most of my work on the computer, so all of my application use and browsing is automatically tracked. The rules are incredibly helpful, making it easy to assign tasks correctly to the right project. In the latest version, the rules were made even more helpful — if you change settings for a rule or add a new one, you can reapply the updated rule to past days (which gives you a quicker view of what tasks you might assign to which project). Export settings do everything I'd hope for. It's easy to search by certain criteria to see more details on time spent (for example, I can search by filename to see how much time I spent on one file). I really feel that with every update, Daniel makes Timing better and better. He's also very kind and responsive to questions, too. Can't say enough good things - this continues to be a really helpful program for me!

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!

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.

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

Really great app that helped me a lot in figuring out where all my time goes. Its UI is beautiful and really intuitive (i.e. I didn't have to invest a lot of time to use the time tracker). At first I found the price point to be a bit steep, but after using it for a while it really is worth every cent of it.

Timing has been extremely helpful and has taken some of the pain out of time tracking. Setting up rules to track time to specific projects is truly a safety blanket and I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t need to use my former time tracking app. The ease of use and speed in which I can assign chunks of time that didn’t match an existing rule is great.

I've looked around for a Tracker which respects privacy and after a lot of trial and error have settled on Timing. As much as there are similarities between different trackers and different approaches to categorising, I've found that the most important thing to me was that there was 0% risk of my data being compromised. Thanks for a thoughtfully made app - Privacy by design.
