OfficeTime.net has updated its OfficeTime time-tracking software for Mac and Windows, as well as launched a version of the app for iOS devices. The new version of the desktop app improves speed and file opening, can optionally import contacts from Outlook (in the Windows version of OfficeTime) and now does automatic hourly, daily, weekly and monthly backups. The iOS version works with iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone comes in a regular and free edition.
OfficeTime is a time-tracking and reporting solution for freelancers, teams and others who bill according to the time put into a project. The program features a polished interface and a high ease-of-use factor that allows users to easily capture, analyze and manage multiple jobs at multiple rates. It allows users to work offline, does not require a subscription and can time in the background.
The free version of the iOS app provides all the basic features, but users can upgrade (through in-app purchase) to gain the ability to track unlimited numbers of projects and categories, export to Excel or Numbers, and sync the data on the iOS device to a Mac or Windows copy of OfficeTime. The full version of the program for iOS costs $8.
The desktop version of OfficeTime for Mac or Windows costs $47 and requires Windows XP and later, and works with all modern versions of OS X including Lion. The company offers a money-back guarantee on the software.
