[Q & A]
Q: Why named "BlockyTime"?
A: Though time is continuous, for rapid tracking, we separate time into blocks by half an hour at the expense of accuracy. This period not only meets the need of statistics, but also is convenient for people to remember event.

Q: Why make 30 minutes a block? This is not accurate.
A: Statistics is meaningful only when people persist for a long time. Look at statistics in week or month, 30 minutes a blocks hardly make negative effects on analysis. Compared to spending more energy to make it accurate, track time quicker, take advantage of saved time on other things makes it better.

Q: I have OCD, inaccuracy makes me uncomfortable.
A: Just stand back and think about it, if you pursue the accuracy, after every time of record, should you add an event called "Tracking time"? Then it takes some time to track this one, so you have to record again, and then, endless loop…

Never spend much time on tracking time, this is truly using time effectively.

Great app

Personally I really like that it locks you into 30 minute time blocks. This means that I question myself and push myself more- I'll stop procrastinating sooner so that it’s not a whole another 30 minutes logged as “recreation“. The graphs are nice, color options nice, app is easy and simple to use. The one thing I would change is I'd like to have the option to completely delete all my data and start over. I've come back to this app on and off depending on how tightly scheduled my life is. In these times, I'd like to be able to just start from the beginning instead of having my inconsistent data from a year ago lurking in the background.

Edit- oh! I’d also like the ability to choose when the day “resets“ instead of it automatically switching over at midnight. Sometimes I do work late in the evening until the early AM and still consider it work from the previous day.

Love this!!

At the beginning of 2019 I began tracking hour by hour in a Google Sheets file on my phone. It also breaks it down with a pie chart but this app is everything I wish I had with Google Sheets. I may use this for 2020.

Things I would like to see: ability to zoom out and rearrange it see each day as line items. By doing this in Sheets it gives me a good overview to see patterns. Also I would like to see AM and PM options rather than just military time. Other than that, it’s a really great app

Great app!

Not sure what the paid version offers. I’d be willing to pay a small monthly fee for a regularly updated app like this. 5 stars, but not sure yet if this can sync across iOS. I don’t think so? The iPad app doesn’t seem proper either (both orientations). I have to double check though.
