Simple, sturdy app for tracking your work time
You could use this app as a kind of time pedometer, seeing how long you spend on various tasks, and then being shocked at yourself. However, it's built for freelancers, or anyone whose clients pay them by the time they spend on the job. The newly-updated TimeTag 4.0.0 for iOS and 2.000 for OS X mean you can tap a button to start logging, and get on with your work.
