SYNCHRONIZATION - Keep your data in sync using the optional synchronization setting. When enabled your data syncs automatically and immediately on all your Macs and iPhones via iCloud, Dropbox, or WebDAV.

CALENDAR VIEW - View your daily work activity in a unique continuous calendar, which also allows you to select date ranges for review.

Nice looking but...

This is a beautiful looking program. It started out good, but then the menubar application got stuck in this messed up state that renders it worthless beause you can’t add new entries using it, open settings, or do anything. I don’t like it when menubar apps don’t give you right-click access to quit, etc., selections and this one doesn’t seem to do that. I opened the main program to find some enlightenment via help, which opened the website to a support conversation explaining that there really wasn’t any help videos and giving a two paragraph summary of actions.

All in all I expect to see great things from this application because it’s beatiful and features cool concepts; the developer is obviously a talented designer. For now, however, the application is quite heavyweight (the popup takes seconds to appear when clicked even though this MBP is ridiculously fast), there appear to be some bugs, and the lack of help content is, well, kind of silly as the UI is fairly involved.

Note, some of the issues may be due to my pre-release version of OS X, so my rating doesn’t reflect the bug I’ve come across because it would be unfair to ding the developer for a compatibility issue.

Helped so much with my productivity

This is the best time management app I found on App Store so far. I tried “be focused pro” and other interval-based timer but didn’t like them. I like to organize my work and time by tasks not time intervals. So timelime is great for me. I can create individual tasks and turn the timer on for each task when I start working. The analytical views are clear and useful when I try to reflect on my work flow. I also bought the mobile version for around $6(? not sure) which can be synced with the desktop version. I really like the visualization of the daily timeline in the mobile version. But unfortunately, I couldn’t find in the desktop version. Maybe the developer can think of integrating it to the desktop version too?
After using it for a while, there is one feature that I would like to have: schedule planning. If i could plan out my day and use the timer to see how I’m fulfilling my plan and see where the discrepencies are, it will be even more helpful. Now I’m doing the planning by writing the schedule down and compare with the analytical views I get from the app.

Perfect. Exactly what I was looking for, and with a gorgeous UI

I've gone through a lot of time-tracking apps, and most of them are either cloud-based (subscription required), heavy-duty things with codes and projects and tasks and far too many features, or overly simplistic. Timeline strikes the perfect balance.

First of all, the UI is simple and beautiful.

Secondly, it does exactly what I need.

* I can quickly track the projects I'm working on.
* I can easily tweak the times on them.
* It lets me know when I've been away and let's me continue or reassign the time.
* It generates a consolidated report of the time spent on each project for each day--perfect for entering into my company's timesheets
* And it has a number of other great features. More reports. Prompting for notes.

Just the right level of detail, and doesn't get in the way. And it costs half what the product I used to use cost (before they decided to go subscription-based to).

I want to see this app take off the way it deserves.

And don't forget. You can download a TRIAL VERSION off the website and make sure you love it before you buy. Something virtually nobody else offers.
