[prMac.com] Windeck-Rosbach, Germany - EUROCOMP today proudly announces an update to Timing, the unique time tracking application for OS X. In contrast to classic time tracking applications, Timing 1.3.2 doesn't require users to manually operate timers. Instead, users' activities like editing documents, surfing the web, and playing games are tracked automatically and can be easily reviewed at a later time. This avoids inaccurate time logs and the risk of forgetting to start or stop a timer is eliminated. A lite version (limited to today's and yesterday's data) is available for a free trial prior to the purchase.
The application is targeted at Mac users who are curious about how they spend time using their computer. Timing will give a detailed overview on how much time is lost playing games and browsing websites like Facebook and Twitter. Using these data, users can adapt their behavior in order to increase their productivity.
Features at a glance:
* Automatic background time tracking with file-level accuracy
* Simple sorting of activities into projects
* Overview of time spent with per-day view
* Easy-to-use date filter
* Custom activity form for entering non-computer activity, e.g. phone calls
* Excellent performance, even with large amounts of activities tracked
"Timing allows users to efficiently track their time without all the hassle of having to start and stop timers." commented Daniel Alm, the app's lead developer. "It all happens automatically in the background - just like magic."
Freelancers and other professional computer workers can leverage Timing to obtain an overview which projects consume most of their time, allowing them to bill their work hours more accurately.
Timing tracks the path of the currently edited document and the domain of visited websites. It also supports grouping activities into projects for easier aggregation of data. Thanks to this concept, users are able to check what activities they spent time on. Populating projects with data is as easy as drag-and-drop.
Even though it collects sensitive data like the currently used documents, Timing will not compromise the privacy of its users. Recorded data stays safe on the user's computer and a customizable blacklist makes it easy to prevent selected activities from being tracked. In addition, any entry can be erased retroactively.
