Ratings and Reviews
back to the best
Update: I still love this app!! The reporting functionality has been much improved (my needs as a solo user are limited but real) since my last review below and I’ve had only rare crashes. I can’t imagine using any other time tracker at this point.
I started with this app a long time ago, was a happy user, then had to abandon it when it started acting up in some of the ways to which other users have attested. I contacted support but didn't see the main issue I was having (overlaps I couldn't get rid of) go away. So I reluctantly switched to a different and app. Finding the replacement program lacking after several months' use, I contacted Hours customer support about my issues to see if there might have been any updates that could have addressed them, and was encouraged to try Hours again. I've been using it continuously since April, and it's now working as advertised. I do still occasionally get unintended overlaps when switching tasks or changing labels for a task -- it seems to happen when my internet connection is slow and the sync lags a bit. But such overlaps are rare and easy to locate and correct. I use the program to track my work as an academic in the humanities, so I can't comment the team features, but for solo time tracking this is the best I've used. I've tried half a dozen time tracking apps over the years. The closest competitor I've worked with is Toggl, but in my view Hours wins handily.

Seriously, thanks for the amazing feedback!
Best time tracker app for freelance
I’ve tried quite a few time tracking apps to record time I work on different projects and this app handles multiple tasks/projects the best. I can work on something for half hour, jump to a different project/client and do that for an hour, jump back to the previous project and as long as I remember to start the timers it works very well.
Additionally, the timeline is super easy to use and it’s simple to adjust time blocks of work as you’re working throughout the day. I know it sounds crazy, but it’s remarkable how many other apps don’t nail a basic necessity like this.
The developers have done an outstanding job and I have but one singular gripe: the color palette 🎨 It could really use some punch! I’m sorry for being picky but pastel isn’t my thing 😩 If you guys could allow us to assign our own colors to projects that would be awesome! Thanks!!

We think that Hours is perfect for tracking and managing your time and we're glad to see that you agree. Happy time tracking!
Great on the phone and old watches. But no support for series 4.
With my phone and old watch, this was a 5-star app; with my only slight disappointment being the lack of ability to set overtime rules. But that’s easy enough to deal with myself after I export my CSV.
BUT: The complication no longer works on the Apple Watch. I upgraded to the Series 4 yesterday, and the Hours complication will not let me add it to new faces. The app synced over, and it works when I launch it manually. The complication even works still on my legacy faces that transferred over when I switched. But I can’t add it to the new faces I’ve been trying to set up. This a problem for me, given my workflow and my unpredictable need for time tracking. My work is fairly interrupt driven and only certain clients and projects need to be tracked. So the ability to switch time tracking with just a couple of taps to the wrist was a godsend.
So, tl;dr, this is a 5-star app on old hardware. But I guess the devs have abandoned it on the meantime, and if you have current hardware, you’re unsupported moving forward. So minus 2-stars on current gear.
