Finch ... Time tracking just got a whole lot easier, with Finch.
Finch is a time tracking application that monitors what windows are open on the screen at any given time. Using the application's tagging system allows for detailed reports of how much time is spent working on different projects.

Set it, and forget it
Starting with Finch is as simple as running it, and then proceeding with your work. Finch will quietly sit on your Mac OS menu bar until the end of the day. No messy configuration, just turn the app on and let it go!

I previously used an approximately $50/yr. cloud service that had too many options. Finch has the exact feature I needed : it tracks my time for me. So when I'm beset by distractions and get pulled in 50 different directions over the course of the day - inevitably forgetting to start/stop a timer on a project, I can go back and look chronologically at what I was working on when.

This seems good, so far -- BUT: there is no reason for a menubar icon that can't be hidden. The menubar feature provides minimal functionality for this app, but takes up one more spot on the menubar. Why does every developer have to add something in the menubar these days? Crazy!

Software like this is going to work wonderfully for some people, and horribly for others, depending upon how specifics of the implementation meshes with the users' work styles. This is the sort of software where a user is going to need to try several different applications before settling on one.

To offer it only the in App Store with no demo, for a non-trivial price, has at least caused me to look elsewhere, especially given the occasional didn't-work-for-me reviews there.
