Time is the most precious resource that we have in our lives. The way you decide to spend your time has a paramount effect on your life.
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.

Ratings and Reviews
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! 👏
Know how you spend your time
I have been very happy with this app. I’m not a freelancer and I don’t have to report time to my work, but I wanted to get a better idea of how long some things take, and how much time I’m spending on some personal projects outside of work. All the well known apps (Hours and Toggl for instance) are too complicated and too focused on reporting time for pay purposes.
Timelines, on the other hand, is clean, straightforward, and dead simple to setup and use. The chart is great, correcting time when I forget to add it is easy, and the app just feels like the right level of tracking for me. I also appreciate that I don’t have to create an account on some service (like with Toggl) to use this.
