Well thought out design
This app is well-thought out and the layout is perfect. It allows time tracking of multiple projects (or classes for instance) as well as how much time was spent for each "task" (or homework assignment).
I love how it tells the date and time when you started/stopped the task.
I wish there was a way to write notes/comment on each task however. For example, I spent a lot of time prepping for one homework assignment/whole class in general, which means some of the time seemingly spent on the homework assignment may have been better tracked in a different section. Or, I can leave a comment to mention/remind myself that the first 30 minutes were spent printing lecture slides, for instance, which while it is part of the homework assignment, its not actually time spent ON the assignment. Also, if I start and restart on a task, I want to be able to write what I got done the first time around vs the second time around.
With the ability to comment on each time section, i would easily give this 5 stars. Well-designed, well thought out, nicely organized. Nicely done.
A very good warm up!
Like other reviewers who have reviewed this app I too started with hours keeper and then migrated to this app for the multi-platform functionality. In general the app is fantastic and does exactly as advertised. However, there are some subtleties that i do hope they fix soon. Invoicing was mentioned in previous reviews and I'm gonna jump on that band wagon. I hope they provide a more in-depth invoicing functionality. I need options and details when it comes to laying out my work for my customers at least. To the developer, check out the app Hours Keeper for invoicing functionality ideas. If you could expand upon their functionality you would be a god among time keepers! Also, i desperately need to be able to record time on multiple tasks simultaneously, and currently you do not have this functionality. If you would include this feature i would personally petition for the developers saint hood! In general love the app and recommend it to people, but i will need further refinement before i start using it hard and heavy.
The best of many choices
There are dozens of time tracking apps on the App Store and I have bought and used many of them. Chrono Plus is absolutely the best one out there. It is clean and straightforward to use, synchronizes well between desktop and mobile, allows for custom names and rates for each project and sub task. There are a couple of things I would like changed, for example it is clunky to add time to a task if you forget to click the start button when you begin working (it won't let you easily add time retroactively). Also, in the mobile version you can't edit details about your task at all. But aside from these minor annoyances, it does everything well and it is definitely the best of its kind. Five stars from me.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
