[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - OfficeTime is today unveiling the iPhone and iPad versions of its highly successful time and expense tracking app which has developed a loyal following among PC and Mac users. To celebrate the launch, the company is giving away a free iPad 2.
OfficeTime has been designed to balance features and ease-of-use, allowing users to easily track exactly what they do each day and how much they spend. Ideal for anyone who bills by the hour, OfficeTime makes recording and tracking time and expenses simple with a clean, elegant interface.
The new versions for iPhone and iPad focus on ease-of-use, recognizing that if time tracking is simple to do, users will be more likely to take the time to do it. OfficeTime takes great care to minimize how many finger taps it takes to do something. For example, it can preselect the most common task for a project, allow one tap entry of common notes, and let users edit anything they can see, even in a report, with a tap.
"The greatest advantage of OfficeTime is that by being simple to use, people catch more billable hours and it pays for itself in the first day of use," said Stephen Dodd, president of OfficeTime. "We're so confident in OfficeTime's value to our customers that we're willing to extend to them a full money back guarantee, even for the iPhone/iPad version, if they don't experience increased productivity through accurate time tracking."
The iOS version of OfficeTime includes most of the features available in the desktop versions, including:
* One-touch Reports - with a simple tap, users get instant access to information on time and expenses for each project, and compare the activities of the current month to previous ones.
* Tools for freelancers and contract employees - freelancers can quickly track their billable hours and spot-check to see how they stack-up against a fixed cost estimate and employees can easily track and report their productivity.
* Team Reporting - Employees' recorded time and expenses can be synced from their iPhones or iPads to their Macs or PCs and combined with the entire team's data to produce cross-team reports on who did what and which projects are under or over budget.
* Wireless Sync - Time and expenses can be entered in the desktop or mobile version, and OfficeTime will automatically synchronize the data.
* Export to Excel or Numbers - Any report, any screen can be easily exported by e-mail
OfficeTime's loyal following was built on its simple-to-use interface and rich, visual reporting at the touch of a button. The app makes it easy to pause, resume and track multiple projects simultaneously along with recording expenses and detailed notes.
As part of the OfficeTime launch celebration, the company will give away an iPad 2. Anyone who blogs about OfficeTime, retweets the news of OfficeTime's iOS version, follows @OfficeTime on Twitter, or likes OfficeTime on Facebook will be entered for a chance to win.
Pricing and Availability:
OfficeTime for iPhone and iPad will retail in the App Store for $7.99 (USD), while the PC and Mac versions can be purchased online for $47. Unlike web-based time-tracking applications, OfficeTime does not require a monthly subscription fee.
OfficeTime was established in 2003 as a spin-off from Transcena Design of Edmonton, Canada. OfficeTime was developed in response to Transcena's urgent need for an easy-to-use, effective, time-tracking application. Designed and continually improved by the same developers who were relying on it every day, OfficeTime was an immediate success when released to the public. Copyright (C) 2011 OfficeTime.
