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.
