Ratings and Reviews
I didn't lose my data
I've been using the free stuff for awhile because the interface is quick and initiative. So I have lots of data in the app on my phone (no online account). When I saw they revamped their service levels I feared the worst... But other than being compelled to finally create an online account I didn't suffer any data lose, nor has my past data been disabled (even though I'm well past the allowed three timers for free service tier). Thank you. PS if you had an all you can eat device-only tier (no web) for $12/year I think you'd get more sales from people like me.

You can still access your data and use Hours for Free, just select the version that is best for you, select "Try a Taste Before You Buy". Then login or create an account (name, email, password). You will get 3 free additional timers (beyond what you already have) and you can continue to use Hours for Free. If you choose, you then have the option to subscribe to Hours Personal (for the low introductory price for the first year) or Hours Pro. You will get unlimited timers, sync, automatic backup and simplified timer creation. Additionally, Hours Pro subscribers also get Hours web access. If this resolves the issue please consider updating your rating and comment. Thank you.
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.
Awesome watch app, fine phone app. Wish there were reporting/analytics tools and iPad app
I used this app for > 1 year, almost daily. Main benefit is the smoothness. Most time tracking apps are too clunky to find the time to use, but the watch app and Today widget make it very easy to switch timers thoughtlessly.
The only downside is the reporting. The in-app reporting is depressingly minimal - just a table with total hours for each tracker. The web reporting tools are pretty good, but not worth paying $100 / year in monthly subscription fees. And without the ability to analyze, there’s little point in time tracking. I was hoping that by spending this kind of money, we would see some nice new reporting features added to the app, but its been the same for years, and I cannot justify the expense anymore.
Trends and graphs (which already are built into the online version) would make this app much more useful. Would be especially nice if these were included in a dedicated iPad app, too.
