    I am a relatively new user of Toggle, but it has been a neat little tool to track all sorts of activities. I use it to track time on a couple of different projects and I did not need any of the fancy payed features, so free version serves me well. Highly recommended!

    Analytics on your daily habits and productivity

    RescueTime is my favorite. Works great for giving you insight into where your time has gone. How much is really spent on Facebook vs doing work. I like "distraction free" mode and the chrome extension makes it easy to see how "good" you have been. I find its a good reminder to keep focused.

    If you're interested in Quantified Self, RescueTime integrates with Gyroscope to give you a view into your productive/unproductive time. Only downside is that iOS is not supported.

    Great suggestions here, go with Hubstaff if you need these: - Activity reports - Integrations with project management and other 3rd party tools (like Github, Trello, Paypal, Zendesk and more) - Automatic payroll via payment Paypal, Payoneer etc. - if you have people working off site (and need GPS tracking)

    I'll definitely vouch for it. The app is truly cross-platform - they've got apps for mac, windows, linux, android, ios & even a chrome extension. With their recent updates, I can also see how much money was spent on each task (calculated based on no. of hours spent x hourly rate) which is pretty cool.
    We're using Hubstaff at EpicCoders since 2011. Its reporting tools, automatic payrolls and the native apps for all the platforms are what makes it stand out from the rest of time tracking apps we tried.

    Weekly Timelog

    Automatic time tracker for developers

    Sebastian made this product
    TimeLog is a super great tool. It is the only tool I have been able to find that ties together time tracking, invoicing, analytics, salary, project management. Invaluable if you are in the engineering or consulting business.
    With TimeLog, I can have my project, resource and invoicing overview in the same system. Good luck on finding another software that do that.

    Integrates with Google Calendar, Office 365, Moves, and its own tracker (Memory). And has it's own API, so you can create your own apps to communicate with it.
    Automatically measures your time and has great integrations.

    Although I also use RescueTime I've become quite partial to Qbserve. It's a local app and has a similar functionality to RescueTime but without some of the advanced reporting. It does however, give me some immediate reminder of when I'm being unproductive by changing the dock icon.

    One of the best time tracking tools, especially if you need to integrate it with your project management app, such as Asana, Trello, Basecamp, GitHub or Jira. I bet there is no better alternative.

    Contracts, invoices, and expenses for digital freelancers

    I used Bonsai's in-app time tracking as well as the tracker they built for Mac OS, it gets the job done and you can export your time into invoices easily.

    Bonsai recently added really simple time tracking that integrates directly with their invoice system. I've tested a lot of the team's features, and this has been the most useful thus far! No more manually logging my hours in a spreadsheet.

    Hi, Daniel, the maker of Timing here. Thanks for the recommendation! By the way, I'm currently working on a brand-new version, launching next month. You can sign up for the beta at https://beta.timingapp.com. That version has been built from the start for the needs of freelancers and small agencies, with a ton of new reporting features and optional start/stop timers if you need them.

    Tyme is amazing because it's very simple and focuses on time tracking versus all the billing, projects, etc. It has just the needed basics for tracking time by different projects and no more. The UI is so much better than most other time tracking apps. I'm a happy paying customer!
