Hours is the time tracker you will actually use.

"The Perfect iPhone Time Tracking App" - Forbes

"Surprisingly pleasant to use…well-thought-out interface" - TechCrunch

“The world’s easiest way of tracking your time.” - 9to5Mac

Best New Apps - Apple

With a visual timeline, smart reminders, detailed reporting, and an interface crafted by and Apple Design Award winning team, Hours turns a tedious process into — dare we say — an enjoyable one.

Time tracking seems like it should be easy…and it would be, if we were all robots. Unfortunately, humans tend to have problems with

1. Forgetting to track your time in the first place
2. Forgetting to note when you change tasks
3. Forgetting to stop a timer after you start one

So Hours lets you:
• Set smart reminders to nag you at just the right times to start and stop your timers
• Start/stop/switch timers with one tap (now even from the home screen with 3D Touch)
• Use the visual timeline to easily identify and correct mistakes
• Set rounding rules to round time to whatever interval you are used to — 6 minutes, 15 minutes, and more
• Quickly see on a calendar view which days you tracked time and which days you forgot
• Track your time by clients, projects, and tasks if you need to
• Add notes to your time entries
• View on-screen reports in the app, or email detailed CSV or PDF reports

New in 2.0:
• Sync your time with Hours on the web, where you can track time from your desktop and view beautiful reports
• Now your whole team can use Hours to track, report, and analyze time

What’s new? We’re glad you asked!

• The “Quick-Entry” feature – Sore fingertips are for quilters and guitar students. Instead of multiple taps to adjust the start and end points of a timer, simply choose the desired digits from a numeric picker and spare your digits from the burden of endless tapping.
• Your preferences are now cached in memory so you can access them faster.
• You know how Reports were sometimes delayed while data was loading? We fixed that.
• The timeline can now update during sync – even if you’re on a slow-ish network.

Hours Time Tracking Reviews


Bait and switch to monthly subscription  Ncturnal  1 star

The "free" is just a bait and switch to their pro version with monthly pricing. I have no problem paying for an app but a monthly subscription is unnecessary.


back to the best  chicagoland-ipaduser  5 star

I started with this app a long time ago, was a happy user, then had to abandon it when it started acting up in some of the ways to which other users have attested. I contacted support but didn't see the main issue I was having (overlaps I couldn't get rid of) go away. So I reluctantly switched to a different and app. Finding the replacement program lacking after several months' use, I contacted Hours customer support about my issues to see if there might have been any updates that could have addressed them, and was encouraged to try Hours again. I've been using it continuously since April, and it's now working as advertised. I do still occasionally get unintended overlaps when switching tasks or changing labels for a task -- it seems to happen when my internet connection is slow and the sync lags a bit. But such overlaps are rare and easy to locate and correct. I use the program to track my work as an academic in the humanities, so I can't comment the team features, but for solo time tracking this is the best I've used. I've tried half a dozen time tracking apps over the years. The closest competitor I've worked with is Toggl, but in my view Hours wins handily.

Does not work  Shosh Kabob  1 star

I bought the premium subscription for a year because I wanted to be able to sync my timers using my desktop. However, the syncing never works. My timers on my app and Apple Watch never synced properly from when I updated them on the desktop. I exclusively my Watch to start and stop the timers, but when I check on the mobile app or the desktop site, there is ALWAYS a timer left running, even though I definitely stopped it on my watch. So now I just have days of straight work recorded even though that would be physically impossible. It's been a complete waste of money and very exhausting for me since I now have to try and re-calculate the hours I spent working.


Does Not Work As Advertised  Eiramis  1 star

The design was not well thought out. Cumbersome for a busy person on the go who doesn't have the time, or patience, to deal with this app's quirkiness. Report function is not working at all! Useless....

Dre Solo

Has potential but very confusing  Dre Solo  3 star

I am getting confused trying to use this. Lots of headache trying to understand it. Maybe it's glitches or I'm not doing it right. Having to look for alternative options other than this app. I'm sure they will utilize the workflow better soon for easy use but for now it's hard to use. Spend more time trying to figure this thing out than I should. Tried using for a week for my edits. No use.


No back button if you change work days  french_teacher  1 star

I figured I would give this app a try, but when I changed the default work days, there was no apparent way to leave that screen. No visible back button, swiping didn't work. Does this app only function if you work Monday-Friday? If so, why give the option to change it?


Easy & efficient  merebearhu  4 star

I use the app to track my project time as a consultant and freelancer. It's simple. Straightforward and works. I am still in the 30 day pro trial, based on experience so far we will likely select this product to track team time and client reporting. No complaints & nice design.


Meh  drowssapma  3 star

I've had it for 4 days. All I really need is for it to track when I left, go to a client, how much time I spent there, and going back. The first 2 days, it worked great. Then the next 2 days after I lost all of my tracked time. Why? The app needs to be open on the phone...really? You have (I think) 2 choices: either have an "offline" mode for the watch, or if it can't find the app open, create an alert on the watch. What's that, 3-4 lines of code? Easy fix...get on it.


I want to 'love' but I keep losing data  210201  1 star

I keep losing data when I use the Apple Watch app. I see the timers running on my watch, however the timeblocks rarely sync to the phone. I find the Watch app to be slow


So Slow, it May Have to Go  CRW_songs  2 star

I stopped using this app for over a year when my job responsibilities didn't require it as much. Now I am getting back to using the app and I find in to be much slower and jerky to my input. I liked this app's features but the stuttering interface may cause me to look for something else real soon.

@imyke I've only started time tracking for 2 hours, and already I feel a power trip. AAAUGH!!! WORK, YOU WILL BEND TO MY DEMANDS!! 😈


So much potential  Jo2hAll3n  1 star

This app would be perfect for me. But has bugs that make it unusable. You can't have similar project names for different clients or even for different teams. And trying to remove them is impossible. All you get is vague answers. Please please fix this 😭


Once great  TheOneCalledChris  1 star

This app was once great. I used it everyday as part of my workflow. Since the major update it keeps getting more and more buggy with each release. Focus seem to now be more on upgrades than fixes. Will keep trying every now and then to see if it improves but as the app is now it is too buggy to rely on.


Too buggy  rwitunes  1 star

This app is no longer usable--go with Hours Tracker instead. Hours consistently has little glitches that have only gotten worse with each update. I'm tired of waiting on the developers to get it right. Hours Tracker.


Awesome tracking of time! Love it!!  JaclynENipper  5 star

I have not had any issues on the 2 weeks I've used this app. Loving it!! Beats manual time keeping!


Best looking time tracker app!  Hellochriscole  5 star

And it has Apple Watch integration!


Unreliable  gpd21  2 star

This app used to perfect, but it's an unreliable mess. I need a time tracker to do one thing - track my time. Sadly, recent versions of this app will just stop an in-progress timer randomly (sometimes even while the app is open and active!) and sometimes will remove previously completed blocks of time from the same day. Long story short, I can't trust it to accurately record and save my time anymore, so I'll be looking for a replacement.


They broke it...  sylvanonl  1 star

This used to be a very fast and light app with no unneeded features. Now it's sluggish, and about 1/3 of the screen is used to ask you to buy the pro version. A real shame as i really liked this app...


This used to be such a great app  lapslj07  1 star

I relied on this for years but after the last 2 updates it's slower, buggier, freezes up constantly. This was an elegant, simple, quick-to-open-and-use tool and now it's a mess.


The Watch app is unusable  OllieBear  1 star

The iPhone app has become slow with sync, but it's still servicable. My main beef is with the waste of a Watch app. If it's not crashing, it's struggling to turn on the clock for a job.


Watch app doesn't work  BradJKavin  2 star

The watch app doesn't seem to control the app on my phone correctly
