InerTrak for iPhone and iPad, based on the award-winning desktop InerTrak, is a time-tracking tool for designers, contract workers, lawyers, or anyone who works on multiple projects on an hourly basis. It automatically keeps track of the time you spend on different projects thorughout the day; all you do is click to start and stop the timer.
The iPad version makes full use of the large screen.
You can create a list of clients, each with an optional hourly rate.
Each project is associated with a client, and includes an hourly rate (either set automatically from the client's rate, or set individually) which is used to automatically calculate the monetary value of time worked.
A detail view of each project shows the daily totals of both time and money, with the ability to check off days as they are billed. Dates are automatically added when you start the timer, but can also be manually added, if necessary. Time values can be edited, if needed.
Projects can be marked as completed and optionally sorted to the end of the list to get completed projects out of the way of active projects.
A summary view shows the totals of each project -- the total time and money, billed time and money, and unbilled time and money. You can see a summary for any desired time period.
Time values can be displayed in a variety of formats: hours minutes and seconds; hours and tenths of an hour; hours and sixths of an hour; hours and quarters of an hour; even hours and hundredths of an hour.
You can create an email message containing the InerTrak data in CSV format. Send it to yourself and then, on your computer, copy and paste the data into Excel or any program that understands CSV format.
You can add a note or comment to any date.
The currency symbol can be customized to any one or two characters that you want.
InerTrak for iPhone and iPad is fully integrated with InerTrak for the desktop. You can use InerTrak on your iPhone to keep track of time worked in the field or when away from your desk. Then, with a couple of button clicks, copy that data to the desktop InerTrak and take advantage of more advanced reporting capabilities, print timecards or invoices, etc.
Important: Data synchronizing requires a wireless network accessible by both your iPhone/iPad and your desktop/laptop computer running InerTrak (version 3.4 or higher).
If you don't have the desktop InerTrak, you can try it free for 30 days. Download it from www.inertron.com/inertrak.
What InerTrak does NOT have:
o It has only two levels of terms, Client and Project. It does not allow you to further break down a Project into sub-projects or tasks.
o The granularity of time is a day; it keeps track of the total time that you spend on any Project on each day. It does NOT keep track of the individual times that you start and stop the timer throughout the day.
If you need either of the above features, then InerTrak is not the right product for you.
There is a detailed user's guide online at: www.inertron.com/mobile/inertrak. The user's guide describes all the features in InerTrak. If there is a feature or capability that you need that is not described there, InerTrak is probably not the right product for you. Feel free, however, to email us and request it; the best way for us to make the product better is to know what people think is missing.

2 Thumbs UP!!!
First I would like to state like everyone else complains about the people who rank an app without even purchasing it. Apple really has to correct this… This app would have a 4 ½ star rating if it wasn’t for them putting a one star and not even using the app. For anyone that is interested in this app that I paid $20 for, I would give these guys twice that because it paid for itself the first day. I also tried their Desk Top software and purchased it with 24 hours.
I’m a contractor and the last thing I want to do is paper work at the end of the day or end of the week. With this set up I must have saved 3 to 4 hours of time each week..
Everyone seems to complain about how much the app cost.. Would everyone like it better if the developers lived out in the street and work out of a box so they only charge us $2.99.. These people are making our live easier and saving us time and money. Anyway
There costumer support is also great, with a fast response time. I have used this over a month with not one crash. Syncing is super easy to the desk top version and has not failed me yet.. This is a must have time tracking app if in your in the market for one..
Keep up the good work guys!!
Worth it! (updated with suggestion)
This application does exactly as promised: allows the user to easily create clients, create multiple projects within clients, and accurately keep track of time spent on a particular project. The timer stops and starts with a simple tap of the clock, and the timer continues to run even if you are using other applications on the iPhone. As for no free trial, I was a little hesitant as well, but this is a reputable company that has time tracking software for both PC and Macintosh platforms. There are 30-day free trials there, so give those a go to see how they work. The iPhone app is not much different. I'm glad I made the purchase and will definitely continue to use this application. Well done!
UPDATE: I continue to be extremely pleased with the functionality of this application. I have one suggestion though. When keeping track of time in anything but hours/minutes/seconds, it would still be useful to see the hours/minutes/seconds breakdown. Occasionally, I may forget to start/stop a timer, and it would be useful to be able to turn it back by a specific number of minutes, but this isn't possible to do accurately if the time tracking is maintained in a different format without switching it to back to hours/minutes/seconds first.
I spent quite awhile trying to pick which time tracking app to purchase. My needs, clients, multiple projects per client, and the ability to manually enter time (stop watch is nice, but usually not practical in real world situations). While the $20 price tag had me looking closely at the other options, most of the other (cheaper) options did not allow for manual entry (and often other issues.) so, I bit the bullet and spent a twenty.
I am very happy. The application is intuitive and easy to use. I quickly added my clients and projects and had the opportunity to add time manually as well as one stop via stop watch. In both cases the software worked flawlessly and allowed me to enter a note as to what I was doing. I will not be using the CSV (or tab delimited) export, but the on screen report that shows total time, billed time, and unbilled time will work great for me. (When I bill, I'll just check off "billed" on the entries.
Worth the $20 ... because it works and because it makes my iPhone so much more valuable.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
