Capparsa debuts Mac version of TimeTag time tracker

updated 07:10 pm EST, Mon January 24, 2011

Now available on the Mac App Store

TimeTag, having established itself on the iOS platform as a convenient way to track a user's day by avoiding timers and spreadsheet-esque record-keeping in favor of simple "tagging" techniques, has debuted as a Mac app on the Mac App Store. The app automatically and intelligently groups hours by activity, when can then be broken down in to sub-categories or gathered together into meta-categories using natural-language, user-defined tags.

This technique of tagging shows users at a glance what they're spending time on, how much and in what proportion without the need to generate "reports." Records can be filtered to instantly show tags matching a specific criteria, and exported in a variety of formats to use with other applications such as invoicing apps.

TimeTag supports multiple simultaneous timers, can continue timing activities even if the app is quit, and has no limit on how many tags or categories can be created. Records are modifiable and post-event time entries can be created as needed, with data being exportable in CSV, HTML or text formats. On the company's blog, developer Samer Abousalbi promises additional features coming soon, such as menu bar control and cloud-based syncing across the two platform

TimeTag for Mac is $5 on the Mac App Store, and thus requires OS X 10.6.6 or later. TimeTag for iOS is $4 on the App Store. At present there is no demo of the Mac version, however users who wish to "try out" the concept of TimeTags are encouraged to download the free, ad-supported version of the iOS app to see if it's right for them.
