Superego helps you understand what you do when you are sitting at your computer. It tracks the application you're using and the related documents and reports back time spent on any document.
It is designed and intended for personal use, like the "real" Super-ego: "[a] special psychical agency which performs the task of seeing that narcissistic satisfaction from the ego ideal is ensured ... what we call our 'conscience'" as Freud said. A mean to improve ourselves by understanding what we do.
Superego is different from other "time trackers" in that it never tell anyone what you're doing. There is no magic server or database somewhere, no "phone home", no "adaptive device support", no key logger, no information leaking. Superego is a fully sandboxed application and cannot track what you're writing. Heck, it cannot even make a network call. Your data is yours. No one but you can track yourself.
How to use it:
Start it and it will start tracking your application usage. Feel free to quit the application window and use the status menu (the one with the clenched fist) to control the app. You can also reopen the main application window from there.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app to monitor and analyze what you spend your time on!
Being a student, time management is one of the key aspects of being organized and successful. This app seamlessly allows me to see where I spent my time over different periods of time. I usually look at the data on a daily and weekly basis. Yet already very simple to use, I feel that I would enjoy this app even more if it was more intuitive and aesthetically appealing.
Overall, a great app for power users, students, and people who just want to be more time-efficient and productive! I highly recommend it.
Super Ego is Less Super Than I First Believed
SuperEgo’s confusing reporting system gives numerous listings for the same file. It either forces the user to add up the results or makes you change your naming convention to conform to the app.
Apps shouldn’t make you conform to them.
Hope the reporting gets fixed in future releases. Until then, SuperEgo isn’t so super.
Has a better memory than I do!
Super easy to track what you do, when you do it, and allows you to use that information to be even more effective. Great app.
