Small bug fixes and improvements
Ratings and Reviews
GREAT SERVICE, Annoying app
The service is great, the iOS app is a bit better than this one, and the mac app is straight up annoying. I love the service they provide, but the app on the Mac often bugs out when manually moving things around, misclicks makes random time entries pop up, trying to adjust time entries is annoying because there's a 50% chance that you will actually drag the ends to adjust the time, and a 50% chance that you will grab the entire entry even though you clicked the end. Also sometimes dragging an entry's endpoints leads to some random time entry from the beginning of the day to be grabbed, so I have to mannually fix it.
Also the syncing between the phone app and the mac app isn't the greatest and can get annoying, because if I started tracking an entry on my phone, the mac app won't update even after hitting sync unless I open up the phone app to get it to update.
Inconvinient UI Quirks
This looks nice and has features I wanted like Pomodoro and an easy to use tracking toggle. But the (at least Desktop) UI makes editing and adding time really challenging. Every mis-click adds an hour time block with no description or title that requires a couple clicks to get rid of. Would love to see a feature that allows tracking of certain types of work based on what App or Website is open.
Data entry and cloud sync issues
The app will often go offline and not record data even if the computer is connected to the internet. All of my time tracked yesterday has now vanished today. There are data entry issues each time. For instance, the "description" does not always autopopulate, while the project usually does. If you choose a description not associated with another project, it gets confused and changes the project. Data is not truly synced across all devices. The laptop is showing different time entries than desktop, and when you try to modify the time entry by starting or stopping on a smartphone, the changes do not cascade across all devices. There is also no pomodoro support on mobile even though it is offered on desktop. Request submitted over a year ago for this feature. You pay for what you get. On the plus side, the pomodoro feature is nice and will automatically stop and begin a pomodoro break once the pomodoro has ended.
