Love the app, but...

One thing is not what I expected from screenshots. I'm talking about stats window. For me it is kinda pointless as it is right now. I would like tags to be clickable. So I could click on a tag and see a list of only this tagged sessions. I was surprised that it isn't a thing.

Hope the developer will notice my request.
This really is the best mac timer.

save icon change suggestion

I suggest changing the save icon from a floppy disk to a coin. I'm not sure everyone will like it, but I want to feel even more pleasure when I save a timer for a paid project. I don't just save time, I put it in my piggy bank.
