ZipBooks

Simple, beautiful accounting that gets you paid instantly.

Ciocanel Razvan- Co-Founder of EpicCoders
It has to be zipbooks. It's amazing and it's free. They make their money by having a comission on the payment methods they provide but if you don't use that then you pay nada. <3 it

Toggl

insanely simple free time tracking

Bartek Hejnowicz- Awwwsome
I really like Toggl. It has no native integration for Slack, but thanks to Chrome extension you may track time inside Slack. Moreover you may use Zapier to push time entries information from Toggl to Slack.
Benjamin Powell- Founder Adsoup.com & Startup Infomaniac
We use that for basic time keepingnin house, good pricing and easy to use. Keep and eye out for zei as well, recent kickstarter that has a really good physical elemwnt to it. A little pricey though.
Nikola Novakovic- Loves Business And Code
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!

Since Indie Hackers retweeted this question, now it's "add your own bootstrapped product" thread! 😅
Ivan Mir- maker of Qbserve time tracking app
If you are using macOS, Qbserve (my app) will automatically track both personal productivity and time spent on work projects.
Jamie Lawrence- 💻 📈 🏊 🇮🇪 🐠 🐈
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.

Robert van Hoesel- Co-founder Crowded
I actually found this one via PH last week. From a team perspective it works great. The UI has a far way to go, but this day by day view comes very close to the way we plan our work. + The reporting part here is *very* insightful and tweakable. + You can easily track time for others (e.g. put meeting into everyones track, or PM reports for devs) + Integrat… See more
Danielle Cadhit- Co-Founder, CEO @CostCanvas
I like this solution because it helps plan my day and integrates with many of my major tools - Slack, Asana, Google Cal
Stu Green- Serial Entrepreneur.
So this app is about the planning aspect, not the tracking (though it does offer that too). The app allows you to make time to get things done, rather than just asking you what you did. So the planning is a huge piece, and this app allows you to schedule blocks of time to get stuff done.

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!
