Timely app allows logged hours to be scheduled in advance
New time-tracking app Timely has been launched this week on iTunes. Aiming to minimize the effort involved with logging one's work for invoicing, Timely allows users to schedule and plan work while simultaneously logging the hours. Its layout is like a calendar, though simplified to not display time stamps.
Timely is an iOS 7-optimized program that is offered with a no-cost option as well as several subscriptions levels, depending on how many users and projects one is using it for. Subscriptions are cross-platform between a desktop web version and the iPhone app. Central features to Timely include easily turning estimates into logged hours or past hours, its timer function, an overview of entered projects and budgets, and the ability to work offline. Free to download, users can upgrade to the Freelancer subscription for $10.
