[prMac.com] Kyoto, Japan - QOOQ's application, Hours Time Manager 2.1, which has been ranked in Japan in the top 4th spot of the paid productivity applications as well as being featured in What's Hot section, now provides the background functionally that has been so much asked for.
As concept that has been under development since 2000 and that was recently ported to the mobile device last year. It has helped thousands of students gain entry to universities in Japan. The basic idea behind the success of the method lies in the fact that everyone has the capabilities necessary to enter any university, it is just a matter of how earnest you are to achieve it.
Testimonies have shown how, in a time lapse of 6 months, people have ranked significantly better than those who don't use any type of time managing method. According to them, all that was needed was a way of being able to be aware of how they were spending their daily life. Something that was easily achieved by having an application accessible in something they would carry all day, their iOS device.
Using this approach to pursue a goal doesn't require of any special skills. All that the users have to do is to take a couple of seconds to log their activities in the device. Additionally, the iPhone version of "Hours Time Manager" provides a social feature for achievers. This allows the person to appear in a world ranking list which helps build confidence in the fact that he or she is not alone in the struggle for self improvement. For those who prefer to keep things locally, following the progress of specific people like classmates or friends is also possible.
