Timelines is easy-to-use, flexible yet powerful time tracking app. Record what you're doing and get insights into your time with interactive timeline and charts. Understand trends, stay motivated to reach your time-based goals, and make the most out of your time!

I personally wasn't happy with the way I was spending my time, so I decided to build a tool to help myself and others figure out a way to become more efficient. Timelines has been enabling me and other users to understand where our time is actually going, helping us improve our routines and achieve more in our lives. I sincerely believe it can do the same for you.

Editors’ Notes

Time is like money: we never have enough, and we often can’t remember how we spent it. Timelines is razor-sharp instrument in our time-management toolkit, letting us categorize and visualize where the hours in our hectic days are going. We love it for everything from tracking billable time on projects to making sure we’re setting aside chunks of our week to relax with loved ones.

I'm finally on time!

This app has helped me stay on time more than any other method I've tried. I am chronically optimistic with how long anything should take; however, I can now see how long routine tasks always take, so I can plan much better in the present for how long future tasks will most likely take.
I love the visuals and the Apple Watch support! Keep up the great work! 👍
Update (1.4.1): This new update continues to improve on an already great app. I'm really enjoying the quick naming and time adjusting features on the Apple Watch. The developer listens to feedback and responds promptly to email.
Update (1.5): I'm enjoying the extra detail I can glean from how I spent my time with the new addition of event statistics. Every update brings meaningful updates that are extremely useful!
Update (1.6) I still use this app 24 hours a day to track my time. The addition in this update of being able long press on a Timeline to add an event is super useful for those times where I forget to track an event. Excellent update! 👏

Excellent App keeps improving; attentive developer

TL;DR: Having used the majority of “life tracking” apps, Timelines stands high above the rest due to polish, constant improvement, great developer communication.

For those who know me, this should be praise enough, but here are some specifics:


- maintain compatibility with current
- constantly adding features and fixing inevitable bugs
- excellent documentation and support
- primary (only?) developer extremely responsive to queries.


- Integration with Shortcuts and plays well with other apps.
- Ability to set time goals or limits for specific Timelines
- Very easy to start using and/or restart.
- csv compatibility
- multiple ways to visualize data

I bought it early-ish: just before the developer went to subscription model, but I’m happy to support the subscription model as long as I see regular improvements.


This app doesn’t have everything I want. The only app that will have everything I want will be the app I write myself. But with regular communication with developer and patience, I have seen numerous, incredibly useful features added that aren’t available elsewhere.

Thank you and keep it up!
