What's a good app for logging tasks done each day?

I'm looking for an app that lets me keep track of what I did each day. Not a to-do list but a daily log of the tasks I completed so I can look back at the past and track my productivity.

    I used this for a while, in two periods separated by some years. Both times it was fun. But I didn't keep up the habit. Prob cause I had no team, just me… More likely I just flaked. I liked how idonethis they emailed me at 5pm everyday with questions and I could reply by email, very quickly. You could, however, just set this up within gmail or s'thing and use a label search as your "interface". …also, this idea has relations to stoicism's evening minutes method, CBT's gratitude journaling, etc. which I believe can be a better "measure" than number of tasks, cause who's to say those tasks are important? To feel like you've stacked up a few things makes one happy, and pays itself forward, both for yrself and others. ETC!

    Memory by Timely is just magic. I never worry about tracking anymore. It keeps a log for me, and I can look back/categorize activities later in the day.

    Timing 2

    Automatic time and productivity tracking for Mac.

    Daniel Alm made this product
    Timing automatically tracks how you spent time on your Mac and presents them graphically in a timeline. In the timeline, it automatically recognizes what blocks of time belong together — simply click them and enter what you did during that time, done! This is much easier than trying to remember what you did without the extra time context to guide you the process. It also offers a special "snippets" report to list all the things you accomplished in a succinct fashion.
